Jon Jones Critical of Daniel Cormier Following Weigh-In Fiasco

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones didn’t hold back when asked Friday about the weigh-in fiasco that went down featuring Daniel Cormier.

After weigh-ins for UFC 210, Jones held a press conference in Buffalo.

“The crazy thing is that it was allowed to happen,” Jones said (thanks to MMA Fighting for the quotes). “I would imagine there has to be some type of commission or something to go back and see this blatant foul play and address it. Nobody addressed it.

“They just basically got away with one of the dirtiest things I’ve seen in sports.”

After stepping on the scale over the 205-pound limit, “DC” returned shortly after and came in right at 205. He appeared to be holding the towel at the time, which many called a “dirty tactic” on social media afterwards.

“That was absolutely nuts,” Jones said. “I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing. I watched the guy. If you focus on his hands, you can see him looking down and like, balancing out his weight just right to make 205.

“What a clever trick. Very dishonest of him.”
