Daniel Cormier shuts down talk of Anthony Johnson vs. Jon Jones fight

Daniel Cormier interview

This past weekend at UFC 202, Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson left MMA fans in awe as he picked up a spectacular one-punch knockout win over #2 ranked Glover Teixeira in just 13 seconds.

Following the win, Johnson and UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier both verbally agreed to a fight. Despite that, UFC President Dana White revealed this week that he is interested in putting together a Jon Jones vs. Anthony Johnson title eliminator fight.

That didn’t sit too well with Daniel Cormier:

After Jones was pulled from UFC 200 with less than 48 hours until fight night, Cormier stated that he needs a break from Jones, and would not be fighting Jones next, regardless of how the pound for pound kingpin’s USADA appeal process goes.
