Daniel Cormier has said this his last fight in the UFC’s heavyweight division will be his scheduled UFC 166 bout against Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson.

With his teammate, Cain Velasquez, the crowned champion and Cormier wanting a shiny belt of his own, he is set to make the transition to the UFC’s light-heavyweight division and wants an immediate shot at Jon Jones.

Jones unleashed a couple of  harsh comments about Cormier while on the UFC World Tour:

“DC is a guy who really wants to be famous,” said Jones. “I don’t think he wants to work hard. I think he just wants to be famous. You can see it in his physique; you can see it in his card.”

“I hate answering questions about him. He’s just not relevant to me. There’s so many great fighters in the light-heavyweight division. He’s not even top five in his division…”

“He has short reach, bad cardio, he looked terrible in his last fight. It’s like, I’m not worried about him at all.”

Taking to his commentator role on FUEL TV well, Cormier used his camera time during the UFC 163 post-fight show last weekend to lash back at Jones for his comments:

“When I hear his quote, it’s like a 16-year old girl,” said Cormier. “Jon Jones, grow up bud, we’re going to fight regardless of how you feel. And when we do and I’m cutting the line and you might as well pull the guard because I’m taking you down.”
