Through 12 fights and four title defenses, Jon Jones has made a pretty strong case that he’s close to cleaning out the list of contenders at 205.

However, Strikeforce heavyweight Grand Prix champion Daniel Cormier has hinted around at dropping down to 205 once his final bout is finished with Zuffa’s sister promotion. His target would be none other than Jon Jones.

The fight is anything but official and at this stage of the game only a fantasy bout for fans to theorize about, but UFC President Dana White gets a big smile on his face whenever this potential powder keg title fight comes up.

“That’d be interesting,” White said with a smirk when asked about a potential Jones vs. Cormier fight. “I like it."

White has stated that he will never pressure a fighter to move weight classes outside of stating an opinion, but he knows if Daniel Cormier could make the move down to light heavyweight, he would be a force immediately.

I am not sold on the idea of cormier having a good chance vs. jones.

Jones has the reach to negate Cormiers striking and wrestling.
Only thing Barnett is better than Jones at a this point is Submissions,and Barnett was able to hold off Cormier for the most part for 5 rounds.

I say Jones knees and elbows Cormier apart if this happens.

I'm DYING to see this fight! I think Jones gets dumped on his ass and pounded out.

Glover is another guy Jones is likely to meet in the future, plus Hendo obviously. Plenty of work for Jones before moving to heavyweight.

Cormier has better striking then Jones imo. Jones' striking is ONLY effective at this point due to his reach. Cormier would put Jones on his back and pound his ass!! Phone Post

Make it happen Dana. Cormier will take that belt. Plus he wont diva his way out of a fight against a replacement who got no training camp.

Why not make it a catch weight and have jones save the Strikeforce card? Build him up even more, back on Dana's A-list, belt won't be on the line and HUGE for the fans. Sounds pretty damn good to me. Phone Post

I wonder how much time Cornier would want/need to properly get down to 205.

I want to see this even more than Jones v Hendo. Phone Post

I'll believe it when I see it. If DC can cut down, he'd obviously be a dangerous opponent but, it's a different fight with him cutting down as opposed to JJ moving up.

If by "hold off" you mean take a battering from then I guess you're correct in your characterization of the Barnett fight. Phone Post

Yea.I did kinda understate it.

But my point is,I think Jones can defend himself very well vs. Cormier,if slow,somewhat unathletic Josh can.

I find statements like this funny.
In his last 4 fights Cormier decisioned Monson, Devin Cole and barnett and KOs Big Foot..but it's like some foregone conclusion that he would kill one of the most dominant LHWs ever

Cormier will get pick apart from outside by JBJ. I get that most of the Cormier love comes from your hate for JBJ, but I really don't see how dominates Jones or even beats him. Sure he has a really good wrestling pedigree, but he'd still have to find a way to close the distance, get the takedown, and keep JBJ there. This hasn't been accomplished by any fighter in the league and we a believe that Cormier is the guy? I call bullshit. Cormier doesn't have enough weapons in his game to beat JBJ and he isn't a crafty enough striker to truly be a threat. DC is a beast, but he's way over hyped. I don't DC gets out of 3rd round with JBJ.
