UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is all set to fight former heavyweight champion at UFC 241 in Anaheim, California on August 17 at the Honda Center.

Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic previously fought at the T-Mobile Arena last year at UFC 226 and Cormier knocked out Miocic in the first round and became only the second person after Conor McGregor to simultaneously hold title in two different weight classes.

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier

Cormier recently said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA show, that he still wants to fight UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones for the third time and he is willing to move down in weight class for that.

If I fight Jon Jones again, it’ll be at 205,” Cormier said. “That’s where he won the fights, and that’s where I would want to beat him at. I’ve done so much more now that my career is not tied to Jon Jones anymore. It was initially, right? Because he beat me, I won the light heavyweight title, and I was always fighting at light heavyweight, then I became the heavyweight champ. Then I defended the light heavyweight title three times.

This is my ninth UFC title fight. Why am I worried about tying my career to somebody else? I fought for the gold belt, it’s going to be 10 times in my career. So, I need no one. But if I want to fight Jones, I’ll fight Jones. It’ll be my decision this time.” (H/T – MMA Junkie)

He beat me at 205,” Cormier said. “He’s never fought at heavyweight. It would be something completely new for him. I would want to fight on the terms that we fought prior.”
