UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has beaten Daniel Cormier on two different occasions and although his latest victory over Cormier was ruled as ‘NC’. The trilogy fight definitely has tremendous interest amongst fans and it also makes financial sense for the UFC to make it happen considering both fighters are big draws on Box Office.
The reason this fight is such in high demand from the fans is because of history between both the fighters. Neither guy likes each other and Cormier recently said that the beef between both the fighters isn’t settling down anytime soon.
“When you tell a man you’re going to kill him, there’s no peace,” Cormier said on ESPN’s E:60. “It’s always going to be this.”
“I don’t like him,” Cormier says. “We’ve never liked each other, and for anybody to tell you anything different is a lie.” (H/T- MMAJunkie.com)
Although the difference between them doesn’t seem to be subsiding down anytime soon, Cormier has expressed interest in fighting Jones in a trilogy fight in light heavyweight again.
Daniel Cormier will be defending his UFC heavyweight title against former champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 242 which will take place in Anaheim, California. Cormier dethroned Stipe Miocic last year in July.
