During his appearance, Cormier revealed that he would love to fight Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar before retiring from MMA.

“I think I can get two more, I can squeeze a couple more in. If I fight July 7th, I bet I can get one around November and then take a month off in December, and I can squeeze one in at the beginning of March. I can still fight. I beat Stipe Miocic, and this all depends on UFC — and Alexander Gustafsson may hate to hear this — but I’d like to at some point fight Jones again and fight Brock Lesnar. Those are the two ideal end fights, but things don’t always work out perfect. But, I feel like that would be perfect. There’s going to be a few guys pissed off about it, but oh well, they can enjoy fighting each other,” Cormier said. (via ESPN)

The UFC 226 fight against Miocic will mark the return of Cormier to the Heavyweight division. Meanwhile, Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar will have to sort out their USADA proceedings if a potential fight with Daniel Cormier is to happen.
