Dana White likes 'interesting' fight between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

"DC" has already gone on record to say he would drop to 205 pounds for a "superfight" against "Bones" and it sounds like UFC President Dana White is warming up to the idea.

Former Olympic wrestler and heavyweight grand prix winner Daniel Cormier, who's been toiling away in the ranks of Strikeforce for the past several years, really wants to fight reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones.

But you knew that.

What you may not have known is that UFC President Dana White likes the idea, or, maybe you did, based on these recent comments. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise, either, considering Cormier stands just a shade under six feet tall and tips the scale at (or around) 240 pounds.

And "Bones" is running out of opponents.

White told media members during last weekend's post-fight scrum that he "likes" a Cormier vs. Jones fight and it could be an "interesting" match-up. But why would "DC," who's long been adamant about staying at heavyweight because of his past health issues, suddenly consider a trip south?

Cain Velasquez.

His friend and training partner out of American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) is trying to carve out his own legacy at 265 pounds and when Cormier satisfies the remaining fight on his Showtime contract, he hopes to avoid a potential showdown against his teammate.

Or, maybe it's just his competitive spirit.

Cormier is undefeated at 10-0 and likely believes he's the best fighter in the world. And if all you keep hearing about is how some kid on the other side of town is the cream of the crop, it's only natural that you'd want to get inside the cage and prove otherwise.

Either way, this is a fight that can, and hopefully will, happen at some point in the near future.

Anyone feel otherwise?
