Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones have maintained one of the longest-lasting and most high-profile rivalries in the UFC. There have been press conference fights, insane amounts of shit-talking, the fights that Cormier never managed to win, and a slew of failed drug tests by Jones.

Cormier himself told reporters just a few weeks ago that he had “moved past” his beef with Jones. That doesn’t exactly appear to be the case.
Jones and Cormier are currently going after each other on social media, where all people go to express pure hatred for their enemies.
