Daniel Cormier has recently said that his next bout at heavyweight will be his last and then he would like an immediate shot at the light heavyweight title. Champion Jon Jones however doesn't believe Cormier is relevant in the division:

Asked what he thought of Cormier's recent request to cut the line for a shot at the light-heavy title if successful against Roy Nelson, Jones said: "DC is a guy who really wants to be famous. I don't think he wants to work hard. I think he just wants to be famous. You can see it in his physique; you can see it in his card."

Jones then paused, obviously irked by the question.

"He's trying to get his Twitter followers up," the 26-year-old champ said. "That's about it."

"I hate answering questions about him," Jones said. "He's just not relevant to me. There's so many great fighters in the light-heavyweight division. He's not even top five in his division. I'm not sure if he is.

"He has, like, 20,000 Twitter followers. He has short reach, bad cardio (and) he looked terrible in his last fight. It's like, I'm not worried about him at all."

Facking Twitter.

If they fought it would be very slow and methodical, both guys fight kinda casual... Confident, but casual Phone Post

Jones should go up to heavyweight and fight him.

Kinda how Anderson jumped up to 205 for a fight when contenders were lacking. Phone Post 3.0

Man... JBJ can most definitely say some shit that'll easily get under the skin of so many fans.

I respect his talent, I respect how hard he's worked to get to this point and the accolades he's achieved in his career, and I respect him as a fighter... I just personally wish he'd show a little more common decency when speaking about his fellow man.

"I hate answering questions about him... he's just not relevant to me..."

C'mon... there was no need for that comment, in my opinion... regardless of how you feel about Daniel Cormier. Phone Post

I like the guy but I don't care for the idea of him walking into a title shot in a lighter division.

He should have at least one fight with a top contender at the weight.

Him requesting the fight bothers me a bit. I pretty much agree with Jones... for once. Phone Post 3.0

I agree with Jones about DC coming down and getting a title shot right away. But the comments like "he looked terrible in his last fight", and "he has short reach and bad cardio", are just inaccurate. He looked great in his last fight, just dominated Mir. He cardio even on his worst night, is some of the best at HW. Phone Post 3.0

Vitor? a fight fans want to see. Old lion vs new lion- JJ

Chael? A fight fans want to see, I will teach him a lesson-JJ

Daniel? Irrelevant-JJ

The thing about all these fighters, is that they all called to fight Jones in his weight class. Two of which were extremely pointless.

When will Jones ponder the idea of fighting Cain?

Oh wait, that's not relevant. Phone Post

DC is asking for a golden ticket in a division he has never fought in and at a weight that damn near killed him when trying to make it in the past.

I have to agree with Jones on this one. If you want a UFC title then fight for it in your division or earn it in another one. This golden ticket crap needs to stop. Aside from that he wants to demand a shot after he beats Nelson? Don't get me wrong, I like watching Nelson fight but it isn't like he is a contender. On what planet does that earn you a title shot against anyone. Phone Post 3.0

I like that he's owning this now. A year or two ago and he would have tried to play off some humble pc answer he didn't actually believe Phone Post

Jones is absolutely right. DC has very little for Jones at 205 and its a complete joke if he thinks he can just jump the line and get an immediate title shot there against one of the GOAT!!

I don't even think he can make the cut without seriously affecting his cardio and everything. Not that he's got good cardio as is... Phone Post 3.0
