Cormier still wants bouts with Jones, Mir

Monday, December 17, 2012

On a bout with Jones, Cormier said. “If I was ever offered that fight, there would be no hesitation on signing the contract. I’d do it.”

“I think it’s a good matchup and I really do think he’s the best,” Cormier said.” I think he’s the best. … As I prepare for my fight with Dion, I’m preparing for Junior dos Santos, I’m preparing for Jon Jones, I’m always preparing for the best guy.”

“My first UFC fight is going to be against Frank Mir regardless of what happens,” Cormier said. “There’s a lot of decisions to make. I think the UFC has made it pretty clear that Alistair Overeem is the guy they want to fight next for the belt, he was pretty close to getting a title shot before the suspension. There’s some work to be done for Cain and myself before that actually becomes our reality. I could lose to Dion Staring, I could lose to Frank Mir afterwards, I could be 3-4 fights away from a championship, or I could win both of those fights and then we really have a conversation to have.”
