It's far fetched previous light heavyweight ruler Jon Jones needs any additional certainty or motivation in front of his Ultimate Fighting Championship title rematch with abhorred match Daniel Cormier. In any case, he got a few, and from a kindred, previous pound-for-pound ruler, no less.

On July 12, Jones expressed by means of Twitter that he had gotten a telephone call from previous UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
"Just got off the telephone with the arachnid, had some extraordinary useful tidbits for me. Continuously a respect getting regard from your object of worship," composed Jones.
Just got off the telephone with the bug, had some awesome useful tidbits for me. Continuously a respect getting regard from your golden calf.
On Monday's telephone call to advance UFC 214, which happens Saturday at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, Jones was gotten some information about the substance of his discussion with Silva. Jones said "The Spider" called to talk about his own particular session with Cormier at UFC 200 in July of a year ago and actually it didn't compliment "D.C."
"He stated, 'It was practically astounding the level of dread I felt from Daniel,'" Jones said. He said to me, 'I'm an old man now, and Daniel needed to bring me down round after round. I felt fear falling off of him. This man has fear in his heart.' He stated, 'Realize what you're able to do, go out there and you take this from him.' In a circuitous manner, that is the thing that he said."
Jones, 30, should have his expected rematch with Cormier on that same UFC 200 card, however in a pre-battle U.S. Against Doping Agency test, "Bones" tried positive for hydroxy-clomiphene, a hostile to estrogenic operator, and in addition letrozole metabolite, an aromatase inhibitor. Jones already vanquished Cormier by means of consistent choice at UFC 182 in January 2015, quickening their memorable MMA contention.
The news of Jones' test disappointment came only three days before UFC 200 and Silva ventured into Jones' place to confront Cormier, who overwhelmed him on the ground on the way to a three-round choice win.
"Anderson Silva is my golden calf," Jones proceeded on the call. "He's been the person that I've regarded the most since I was 19 years of age and I got into this game. What's more, to hear him have that level of confidence in me and practically disclose to me that it's as of now done, now I simply need to go out there and do what I'm prepared to do, it felt extraordinary. It felt awesome originating from him."
Jones was certain to call attention to one leg up he had on his motivation, however.
"One thing about me and Anderson is my takedown barrier is strong, buddy," he included. "There's no bringing me down if things don't go your direction. There's certainly no laying on me into equal parts monitor the entire time the way that happened."
"It doesn't trouble me," Cormier answered. "I could truly mind less if everyone calls him and reveals to him how he should beat me or what they felt when they were in the Octagon with me. On the off chance that a person is simply going to tumble down amidst the Octagon and let me get over him, I will happily take that."
"I beat him. He would prefer not to see me win. So go get Jon to carry out the employment that he couldn't do.
