Nice to see these two getting along again. Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier brought the trash talk once again.

The UFC held its summer kickoff press conference on Friday to announce a big portion of its upcoming schedule. One fight they announced is that Jones and Cormier will (finally) meet in a rematch at UFC 214 in Anaheim on July 29.

Jones defeated Cormier at UFC 182 in Jan. 2015 by unanimous decision. However, he was stripped of his title following a hit-and-run incident. The two were supposed to meet in 2016 but an injury kept Cormier out of their first scheduled fight, and then Jones was hit with a suspension for a doping violation that knocked him out of competition for a year.

The two have a long history of trash talk and dislike for one another, so it’s no surprise that continued Friday. Cormier taunted Jones about drugs.

Jones’ response was classic, which was “I beat your a– after a weekend doing cocaine.”

Jones tested positive for cocaine in 2014, but he said last year that he was actually addicted to another drug.

Jones will be favored to win their rematch as he’s still regarded as perhaps the best pound-for-pound fighter in the sport. Cormier has won four in a row since his loss to Jones, including two wins over Rumble Johnson and a defeat of Alexander Gustafsson.
