The age of the internet has really made trash talking in fighting into this weird, sort of meta thing. Look no further than Jon Jones and his entire existence. Jon Jones has basically trolled his opponents for a long time now, with Daniel Cormier being no exception. It was announced just hours ago that Daniel Cormier would be filling in for an injured Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 178 against Jon Jones and it has already started. It didn’t take long, did it?
According to a photo that Daniel Cormier posted to his Instagram he received a DM from Jon Jones and he attempts a reply, only to find that Jones doesn’t follow him. This is how we trash talk now, guys. That being said, it’s hard not to be pumped up for this fight no matter the means of the trash talk. This fight is HUGE.
Who’s up for the Jon Jones Instagram video making fun of Gustafsson and Cormier tonight only for him to delete it quickly?
