Daniel Cormier Deflects Jon Jones’ Criticism Leading Up To UFC 166 Bout with Roy Nelson


Daniel CormierStrikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix champion Daniel Cormier is working his way down to light heavyweight now that he is in the UFC. He has said that he would relish a title shot upon his arrival at 205. Those comments came under heavy criticism from UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Cormier, however, has a solid grasp on the situation as he continues his move to 205, but is currently at a point that he doesn’t have a lot to say to or about Jones, as he’s got a fight directly in front of him. Cormier squares up with Roy Nelson at UFC 166 this weekend in what is to be Cormier’s final fight at heavyweight before moving down a weight class.

Still, Cormier does have a few thoughts on the current state of the UFC light heavyweight class and his pending arrival in it.
