Anyone who has read William Golding’s Lord of the Flies knows that it’s always the fat kid who gets picked on.
The latest example of fat kids being bullied can be found in the wonderful world of Twitter, where current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones recently had some harsh words for fellow UFC fighter Daniel Cormier.
“With that being said I love these people. their hospitality is first class nothing but hugs and smiles eating so much Ill look like DC soon.” Jones said via Twitter.
Jones was referring to his trip to Dagestan. Apparently, the champ is worried that if he keeps eating food offered by the locals, he’s going to gain as much weight as Daniel Cormier.
Daniel Cormier has fought in the heavyweight division his entire career, but is currently in the process of moving down to light heavyweight. Apparently, this seemed like a perfect opportunity for Jones to poke some fun at him.
Cormier responded to Jones’s remarks via his own Twitter account.
“It’s much easier to talk when you know theres two fights seperating us. Keep running ur mouth kid! Jon u can’t beat me!”
Oh snap. It looks like Cormier has more backbone than Jones anticipated. Cormier didn’t stop there, he also responded to another Twitter user who criticized him for calling out Jones.
“He started. Sneak attacking on Twitter. Didn’t even mention me. He uses my initials. So weak.”
Now things are getting serious. Apparently, Cormier doesn’t like being “sneak attacked” on Twitter.
Believe it or not, this latest exchange on Twitter could actually lead to a fight in the cage. Now that Daniel Cormier is cutting to light heavyweight, he just needs to win a couple of fights against top competition to be considered for a title shot.
Whether Jones will still make fun of Cormier for being fat even if he makes light heavyweight is currently unknown.
