Jon Jones had no interest in facing Daniel Cormier for a third time but it appears after his recent comments that the former light heavyweight champion changed his mind.
from following their rematch in 2017.
Jones tested positive for steroids but was handed a 15-month suspension after an independent arbitrator ruled that he did not believe 31-year old New York native knowingly ingested a banned substance.  The way Jones said it was knocking out at the Olympic Games in the third round at UFC 214
"I never on."
Cormier conceded the loss to Jones ce said he did not win the fight, "Cormier stated when speaking on the 'Jim Rome' podcast. "I never said that. Even when people would tell me 'I did not get a fair shake, it's not cool, he cheated', I said the guy won the fights. Cause I've always said, I'm sure he's not the only guy I've ever fought who's on steroids. I've always said that. I've just got a pinch of salt?
"Why it was there?" That's my question. Why did not I have a pinch of salt in the swimming pool? That's where my issue is. You win the fight, go ahead and win the fight. Do not have a pinch of salt. Pinch of salt, no pinch of salt. You still had steroids in your system in a fist fight. Not cool. "
Jones, who makes his return at UFC 232 on Dec.
Those remarks obviously got back to Jones, who took to Twitter. 29, wants to fight Alexander Gustafsson to crown a new heavyweight champion as Cormier wants to be forced to vacate the belt while remaining heavyweight champion.
"Daddy's baby still out there, whining," Jones wrote. "What proud" double champion "just vacates his belt because someone else returns to the sport?"
"Pinch of salt, no pinch of salt. You still had steroids in your system in a fist fight, "Cormier stated. "Not cool."

Cormier went into defend that title in January in a fight against Volkan Oezdemir before moving to heavyweight for his last two fights against Stipe Miocic and Derrick Lewis.  In addition to his insult on Cormier's claims as a 'double champion', Jones also offered one more shot at redemption to the 39-year-old veteran who said he plans to retire before his 40th birthday in March.
"Fight me one more time and prove you're actually the champ champ, "Jones said. "I'll donate $ 100,000 to a charity in San Diego if you accept."
"Conor McGregor was an actual double champ, the whole world knows your claim is a freaking joke. You're more than welcome to be my first title defense. "
