Cormier: ‘I have fought higher caliber opponents at this stage than Jones’

“I said that I would only take that fight if Cain was UFC heavyweight champion and I was offered the fight with Jones; that was the stipulation. I am totally content at staying at heavyweight. My diet is pretty much whatever I want, I don’t need to cut really any weight and I still am fast an able to compete with a lot of people in my weight class, why move from it?

Who I have fought and how I have fought, it says something about me. That shows that I am content fighting wrestlers, bigger guys, jiu jitsu guys, all the division has to offer, I’m ok with and ready for it. When you look at my record at 10-0 as a professional and look at Jon Jones record when he was 10-0, who was his toughest guy? Stephan Bonnar and he did not finish him. I have fought higher caliber opponents at this stage in my career than Jon did in his at 9-1; His tenth fight was Matt Hammil.”
