The UFC’s only current “champ champ”, Daniel Comier is seemingly all set to face his heavyweight belt against former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in a super-fight. Cormier’s eternal rival and former UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones has now predicted that Cormier will defeat the much bigger Lesnar.
Jones, who was recently in a conversation with a Russian media outlet, stated that Cormier at light heavyweight was sometimes even faster than him. Thus, he believes DC will be way too quick for Lesnar to handle. Here’s what he had to say:
I’m definitely very excited to see Cormier fight Brock Lesnar, I think Daniel Cormier wins the fight. He’s just too fast. I feel like when I fought him he was quicker than me with certain combinations. I can only imagine he’s going to be a lot quicker than Brock Lesnar.
