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.
