"My dad can beat up your dad," has been a staple of school yard banter since ever since, and now it has found its way to pre-fight trash talk.
It began with a tweet from UFC president Dana White.
Dana White @danawhite
I just talked to @dc_mma on the phone and his little daughter was screaming in the background "My Daddy is gonna be the CHAMPION"
Then Bones's eldest daughter, Leah, 6, offered a message directly to Daniel Cormier.
"DC, my dad's going to beat you up, guaranteed," she guarantees.
Jones fights Daniel Cormier at UFC 168 on Saturday, Sept. 27 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, live on PPV.
