"[Daniel Cormier] is going to bring a lot of excitement to the heavyweight or light heavyweight division," White said following Saturday night's UFC 155 event in Las Vegas. "And he could be next in line to fight Jones."

Cormier earned Strikeforce's heavyweight grand prix title with successive victories over Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva and Jeff Monson. He fights again on Jan. 12, when he meets Dion Staring at "Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine," which serves as that promotion's final event.

The 5-foot-11 Cormier is undefeated as a professional heavyweight, but he has teased the potential for a drop to 205 pounds. With his American Kickboxing Academy teammate Cain Velasquez reclaiming the UFC's heavyweight title at UFC 155, the move now looks more likely.

“I wouldn’t [fight Cormier]. This is my friend, my teammate and my coach,” Velasquez told Fox Sports while sitting next to his AKA stablemate during a post-fight interview. “If you want to see us fight, go to AKA three days a week.”

White said he won't tell either fighter what they should do next.

"I have so much respect for both of those guys," White said. "They can go wherever they want. If they want to fight each other at heavy, I'm cool with that. If [Cormier] wants to go to 205, I'm cool with that. Either way."

Haha, so you gonna be cool if they decide to be in the HW division together and rule as no.1 and no.2 whilst never fighting because of the whole teammates thing?

right but what did he cut from? you can only do so much (20lbs) before it gets really dangerous. If he tried to cut from 240 to 211 (which i have no idea) he could have gotten in some real trouble.

This right here.  I believe he was cutting close to 30 pounds.  That's just not going to happen now that he's had medical issues as a result of the extreme cut.  I would expect Cormier to get down close to 215 and then work on a cut from there.

In before undeserved title shots, UFC is a joke giving a guy with 0 wins in a div a title shot etc.

Just hope that Cormier can actually get down to 205.

Could be quite the struggle for him considering he couldn't get down to 210 for the Olympics.
