Over the last two years, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has all but obliterated every top fighter in the 205lb division.

While former Strikeforce and Pride champion Dan Henderson is still waiting in the wings, Jones will next focus on his Ultimate Fighter rival Chael Sonnen for his next fight in the Octagon.

But there appears to be a new threat that could be looming in 2013 as former Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix champion Daniel Cormier transitions to the promotion with a potential move down to light heavyweight after his debut.

Cormier will make his first appearance at UFC on Fox 7 when he faces Frank Mir in the co-main event on the card, but after that he’s already made his intentions known that he wants to face Jones in the fall.

Jones seems open to the idea of facing Cormier, but at this point he’s tired of the talk and would rather just find out that he’s actually dropping to 205lbs instead of hinting around at the idea.

“You know, the guy is a tremendous athlete and I wish he would just do it and just stop talking about it,” Jones said about Cormier dropping weight classes when speaking to UFC Tonight. “I am open to fighting the best guys in the world.”

If Cormier is successful in his fight against Frank Mir in April and then decides to make the move to light heavyweight, a bout against Jon Jones could be a big fight for the promotion in the fall.

A lot has to happen before then though so for now all the Jones vs. Cormier fight talk is just that – talk.
