Oh, it’s already been broughten! Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and current king Daniel Cormier are back at their old social media tricks again.

Cormier and Jones get to rekindle their beef in person this weekend at the “Unstoppable” press conference ahead of UFC 196 in Las Vegas. What are the chances of this happening again between the two at the pre-fight presser?

Dave Sholler, you better be on your A-game this time if you plan on being the third man in the square-off.

Jones looks to reclaim the UFC light heavyweight throne that was stripped from him, which Cormier gladly picked up, following April’s felony hit-and-run arrest at UFC 197 on April 23.
