Cormier: My road to 10-0 tougher than Jones'

source: Fight Hub TV

"I said that I would only [fight Jones] IF Cain was UFC heavyweight champion and I was offered the fight; 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 and 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 okay 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 Hamill."

Daniel Cormier has World class wrestling and great technical striking. When he is in his stance he is very relaxed, not tight, and very light on his feet. He doesn't stand stiff and over-throw. He stands calmly and his footwork is fluid. He conserves energy this way. His wrestling is very technical and translates very well to MMA. Daniel Cormier is just a better fighter than Jon Jones right now. Jones is great, I just think Cormier is even better. Jones has very good wrestling, and is a top 5 wrestler in MMA/ Cormier is even better at wrestling.Jones is a very good striker / Cormier's hands are better and he would beat Jones in a stand-up only fight in MMA.

truthfully it seems like he almost avoided the question. he said he would only take it under very specific circumstances, and wanted to stay at HW generally.
