Cormier took a shot at Jones on Thursday after the former champion finally had his suspension lifted after sitting out for the past year due to a positive drug test for using a banned substance.
Now that Jones is officially free and clear to fight on July 29, Cormier sent him a not so subtle reminder to stay on the straight and narrow leading into their rematch.
Yo @JonnyBones congrats on ur suspension for steroid abuse getting lifted today. Only a few more weeks now, so please no fuck ups. Thanks DC

Considering the rematch between Cormier and Jones has been canceled on two prior occasions, it’s understandable that each of the fighters might be a little apprehensive just a few weeks away from the fight in Anaheim.
Following Cormier’s jab on social media, Jones replied by more or less laughing at his opponent’s words.
Come on DC, you can do better. We'll wait for it https://t.co/ZZLHGuChSI

Needless to say, the trash talk between Cormier and Jones will only intensify in the days leading up to their fight on July 29.
