Daniel-Cormier-vs-Jon-JonesFresh off his first win at 205 pounds, Daniel Cormier is gunning for a shot at the UFC light heavyweight title and he sends a personalized message to champion Jon Jones on the Great MMA Debate podcast this week.

Cormier’s impassioned plea is sent directly to Jones with a request for a shot at the belt, something he’s wanted ever since he started fighting several years ago.

“Hey Jon, this is Daniel Cormier -?? bro, brother, would you be willing to give me a title shot?” Cormier asks.  “I’m asking nicely.  I’m not being aggressive.  I’m not trying to be confrontational, Jon, I’m just asking.  Would you be willing to give me a chance to fight? Please, brother, please. Make the decision.”

Luckily, Jones was around to listen to Cormier’s question and respond with a message of his own directly back at the former two-time Olympian.

Will Jones grant Cormier a shot at the belt?  Tune in and listen to this audio to find out.

Also on the podcast, Zach Makovsky stops by to discuss his recent win over Josh Sampo and his hopes of landing a title shot at 125 pounds. With the division still looking for a top contender, Makovsky is ready to put his name in the hat for consideration.

Today’s podcast will also feature debate on the recent decision by the Nevada commission to outlaw testosterone replacement therapy, picks and predictions for the upcoming UFC Fight Night London card as well as reaction to Cormier and Jones’ messages exchanged during the show.
