Daniel Cormier will soon fight his last bout at heavyweight and then drop to the light heavyweight division where he hopes to get an immediate title shot versus Jon Jones. Whether that happens or not, Cormier expects to fight Jones eventually and will be happy to beat him up:

"I think it’s part of the game," Cormier said when asked if he thinks Jones was serious about what he said, as opposed to trying to build up a fight. "I never came out and said I’m the most ripped guy in MMA. I’m not. I haven’t cut weight in years. I haven’t tried to cut weight in years. I haven’t tried to diet in years. I clean up a little in training camp, but I’ve never tried to be the most ripped guy, so that kind of stuff doesn’t bother me. I just don’t like him saying I don’t want to work hard. He hasn’t spent a day in the gym with me. He doesn’t know my schedule. I know I’m training. It takes a big statement to say that about someone who has accomplished what I’ve accomplished. You don’t just come out of Louisiana, where there is no wrestling, to become a two-time Olympian in wrestling."

"It’s almost shocking that someone in his position could be so petty," said Cormier. "It was almost like, wow, we’re adults.

"Three points I want to make here. First, Twitter followers. He made mention of that two times in that statement. I don’t understand what that plays into an actual fight. It makes no sense in a fight. Two, how would you like to be Jon Jones’ friend? He says Frank Mir is his friend. He said I was terrible in the fight, and I beat his friend. What are you saying about your friend? Third, it’s petty. Answer the question and get through with it. He never completely answered the question. Do you want to fight me or do you not want to fight me?"

Jones also has a fight coming up, on Sept. 21 in Toronto, defending his light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson.

"The truth is we’re going to fight at some point," Cormier said about Jones. "We have fights to get through first. Then all those things are going to have to be answered. Jon Jones can say he doesn’t know if I’m in the top of my division, but that’s a lie. That’s a bold-faced lie. It’s an obvious lie because he knows how many Twitter followers I have. It’s contradictory.

He needs to shut his mouth, before Jones busts his teeth out.

Daniel is a great fighter, and could be champion one day. But not at 205 while Bones has the belt. He'd get taken down and his face would be split open in a matter of seconds. And standing up he would have no answer for his reach.

Honestly I think Jones is just sick of hearing Cormier yapping about how he's coming to take his belt when he's not even in the same division.

This has been going on for a year now and started when Cormier was still in strikeforce taking fights at HW yet calling out jones. Phone Post 3.0

Yeah. Sure.

Jones' MMA wrestling is far beyond Cormier's, regardless of credentials.

He wouldn't be the first "great" wrestler Jones has thrown in the air and destroyed on the ground. Phone Post 3.0

Jones has faced good wrestlers but nobody anywhere near the level of Cormier. I doubt Cormier would take down JBJ either though. I assume it would be a lot like JBJ v Rashad.

Cormier got him with his last comment on how Jones doesn't know where he sits in the HW division but he knows how many twitter followers he has.

Regardless Cornier should stay at HW. Especially if Cain loses. Phone Post 3.0

After the Mir fight, Cormier shouldn't be saying anything to anyone.  That fight was a fucking disaster.

IF that blown up Darius Rucker looking mofo get's JJ down, he is going to eat some Anderson Silva elbows to the noggin and decide quickly he don't like that!

My guess is BUDR(Blown Up Darius Rucker) tries to Wall and Stall his way to a victory.

Jones Got Dis All Day!

Hard to say but I doubt he's been 205 since college, so 11 or so years ago. I believe he was 211 while competing in the Olympics.

And I thought the last time he tried to cut to 211 in 2008 he almost died?

DC comes off like some kind of crazy, obsessed stalker. Shut up, man. Dude is jealous and butthurt beyond belief about Jones being the man.

Daniel: 'Listen to me everyone! Hey, listen to me! I'm important, too, damn it!'

You don't like being just another contender, Daniel? Be quiet and DO something about it. Lose some fat, beat some top level LHWs and EARN a title fight in THAT division. Pretty pathetic to talk shit about a dude in the division under you. Sounds like Jones broke your heart. Go hang out with Rousey if you like girl drama so much.

Lol, so you do think you're the shit because of twitter followers then?

Proved Jones right while contradicting yourself and simultaneously accusing someone of contradicting themselves. Phone Post 3.0

Sure....so why isn't it happening?

Dana said back in 2012 that Cormier could get the next title shot at 205 and Cormier appears to want the fight. He weighed in at 235 in April against Mir with high body fat.

So instead of always talking about it, why doesn't Cormier make the weight and take the fight?

Because Jones is fighting Gustaffson and Cormier is fighting Nelson.

Didn't Cormier say he got upset because Jones "acted" like he didn't know who Cormier was? Sounds like Cormier is just as petty to me.
