Daniel Cormier and UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones, who are set to face each other in the main event at UFC 182 on January 3rd, had an on-screen meeting during Saturday’s UFC on FOX 13 event (Jones appeared via satellite).
To open up, interview host Joe Rogan questioned both men regarding their infamous press conference brawl in August.
“You know what, I think I would have,” said Jones when asked if he would behave the same way given a second chance. “I’ve been in many staredowns and I’ve never had my throat grabbed, and the guy grabbed my throat and I had to stand my ground and let him know that I won’t put up with nonsense like that. So, yeah, I think I would do it again.”
Cormier responded: “Knowing that he probably would have come at me, I probably would have smacked him upside of his head instead of just pushing him away from me.”
