Daniel Cormier interview

Since Jon Jones has been reinstated by the UFC there has been much speculation as to when he would fight lightweight champion Daniel Cormier.

Jones initially was looking for an April fight at the Madison Square Garden, however as the champion, Cormier wasn’t going to go for that.

Now, Cormier seems to be more open to a potential fight with Jones at the Madison Square Garden, but he still wants the fight on his terms.

He spoke on The MMA Hour:

“I’ve given [the UFC] a couple dates I’d be willing to look at. Maybe you guys will know something soon. I’m going to make my decision as the champion sooner rather than later. Just put it like that.”

“If I had to be completely honest, in terms of how historic it would be and how big it would be, obviously that would be a big deal. Now, for it to be Madison Square Garden, I think honestly Helwani, if it is the Garden, April 23 maybe becomes more intriguing. Obviously, like I said, for historic purposes it would be cool to fight in Madison Square Garden. But we don’t want to really give this guy what he wants. Yeah, yeah. I guess I’ll think about April 23.”

How would you like to see Cormier vs. Jones II at the Madison Square Garden on April 23rd?
