Cormier Would Rather Face Jon Jones Than Go Up Against Teammate Velasquez

“I’m not saying that’s what I want to do right now. A lot depends on what happens between Cain and Junior dos Santos. [Moving to Light Heavyweight] is a potential plan B if Cain becomes champion again, which I think he will. Imagine that: Me and Jones standing across the cage from one another. That would be crazy because you know I’m putting him on his back.”

After winning the Strikeforce HW Grand Prix with his victory over Josh Barnett, Daniel Cormier is guaranteed a slot on the UFC’s heavyweight roster.

However, his teammate, Cain Velasquez, may disrupt these plans and force the Olympian to pack down to the weight class below to try his hands at light-heavyweight.

Can Cormier make an impact amongst the UFC’s elite 205’ers?
