Last weekend, after defeating Dion Staring at Strikeforce’s final event, Daniel Cormier called out UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones during his post-fight interview.
Jones, who has voiced his respect for “DC’s” abilities, says he wants Cormier to quit talking about a drop to the 205-pound division and be like Nike and “Just do it.”
“I think the guy is a tremendous athlete and I wish he would just do it and just stop talking about it. I am open to fighting the best guys in the world. That’s why I’m here.”
Don’t talk about, be about it! That’s what UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones message was to the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix winner on “UFC Tonight”.
Cormier has stated that he will “Kick his (Jones) ass”, should Jon successfully defend his belt against Chael Sonnen at UFC 159 in April. But first and foremost, Cormier will have to take care of some business in the UFC’s heavyweight division, as he is set to take on former champion Frank Mir at UFC on FOX 7 on April 20, 2013.
If this fight is to come to fruition, who do you see winning Cormier or Jones? Let’s hear it Penn nation!
