When Jon Jones appeared on an episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” following his “brawl” with Daniel Cormier, he took a jab at the former Olympian.
Jones, the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion, suffered a knee injury that resulted in surgery and forced the postponement of a planned fight with Cormier until 2015.
