UFC releases 'booth reaction' to Jon Jones' victory, everyone is talking about Daniel Cormier's face
| Last updated
The UFC has released a video of its commentators reacting to Jon Jones' historic heavyweight title victory.
But viewers are all talking about one thing within the clip – Daniel Cormier.
As fans, we love when the UFC shows us fly-on-the-wall footage from inside the commentary booth.
From Leon Edwards' head kick on Kamaru Usman to Michael Chandler sending Tony Ferguson to the shadow realm, some of the team's reactions have been unreal as of late.
Jon Anik usually springs up out of his seat, Joe Rogan tends to scream from the bottom of his lungs and Daniel Cormier normally grabs his colleagues by the collar before rocking back in his chair in complete shock.
Although this latest one is slightly different.
At UFC 285, Hall of Famer Jon Jones cemented his legacy as perhaps the greatest of all-time by winning the heavyweight belt in dominant fashion.
Sitting cageside, Rogan and and Anik did their usual routines, but DC simply sat there and watched on – not looking particularly impressed, it must be said.
When the UFC's social media team posted the clip to Twitter, fans were quick to notice it.
One person commented: "Please watch DC the whole time."
While another added: "DC giving me hater vibes."
As one bloke asked: "Why is DC so bitter?!
And a fourth chimed in, saying: DC can’t fathom the fact that Jon made it look that easy and did it quicker than he did."
Others pointed out David Goggins absolutely losing it in the background.
Cormier and Jones' deep-seated rivalry goes back a long, long way.
During a time when both men were in their prime, it seemed only a matter of time before Cormier and Jones were to lock horns inside the octagon.
And during the build-up to both their fights, tensions boiled over on a number of occasions, most notably at a press conference when the pair started throwing hands in a Las Vegas casino.
From there, the beef turned verbal with the duo taking turns in trash-talking the other whenever they could – much of it being below-the-belt.
But when it came to fight time, it was Jones who came out on top, winning both fights – the second via KO.
In all seriousness DC, I’m cool with you bro. I recognize the man you are, I wasn’t lying when I said those things in my post fight interview. Outside of us being fierce competitors I dig the way you represent yourself, the wrestling community, our community, and our sport— BONY (@JonnyBones) February 17, 2023
Earlier this year, however, Jones extended the olive branch to DC, reassuring him that there’s no underlying animosity..
“In all seriousness DC, I’m cool with you bro,” Jones tweeted.
“I recognise the man you are, I wasn’t lying when I said those things in my post fight interview. Outside of us being fierce competitors I dig the way you represent yourself, the wrestling community, our community, and our sport.
He added: “Sit down interview, post-fight interview, coaches meeting. We’re cool man for real. I appreciate your competitive nature, you drove me to be a better competitor. Forever grateful.”
