Daniel Cormier hits back after troll implies he was bitter about Jon Jones win.

Daniel Cormier isn't letting the trolls on Twitter get away with anything.

On Tuesday, Cormier quote tweeted a fan setting the record straight about his role as color commentator of Jon Jones' UFC 285 title fight.

The fan was replying to the UFC's tweet sharing the booth's reaction to Jones' quick finish of Ciryl Gane on Saturday.

"Why is DC so bitter?!!" the user write along with several laughing emojis.

"Not bitter at all, legit couldn't what he had tapped to until we saw the different camera angle," Cormier replied. "You guys sure can create things. I really don't care either way, I'm here to call fights only."

Fans had been building up a problem once it was known that the two former bitter rivals would be reunited in a unique way, but it turned out to be a non-event as both men behaved professionally in the moment.

But that didn't stop fans from creating something out of nothing, much to the dislike of Cormier.

The pair fought twice, Jones winning both times.
