Full Reptile posted a video of the confrontation between Lewis-Parry and Jones:
Lewis-Parry helped Daniel Cormier prepare for Jones during their rivalry. He actually broke his hand during a sparring session with “DC.” In the past Lewis-Parry has ripped into Jones, calling him “classless” and a “compulsive liar.”
For those unaware of Lewis-Parry’s combat sports background, he was a heavyweight kickboxer under the Glory Kickboxing banner. He’s made the transition to mixed martial arts with a record of 7-0-1, 2 NC.
Cormier has expressed his desire to fight Jones a third time. Despite being the reigning heavyweight champion, Cormier insists on fighting Jones at light heavyweight once again. Cormier is set to defend his heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic in a rematch at UFC 241.
Jones is scheduled to defend his UFC light heavyweight title against Thiago Santos on July 6. The bout will headline UFC 239 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
