UFC Quick Quote: Daniel Cormier beats Jon Jones wherever they're at

Daniel Cormier, who's still campaigning for a future title fight opposite UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, gets a vote of confidence from his friend and training partner, Cain Velasquez.


"He's heavy right now. He's like 240 [pounds] right now. But, you know, we'll clean up his diet really good, because the way his diet is, it isn't the cleanest. He's going to have to work a little bit at it, for sure. He just has to do it smart. The diet needs to be on-point. He can't be messing around with that kind of stuff. I think he can do it. He'd beat him. He's fast. He's powerful. He has the best wrestling out there. I think he beats him wherever they're at."

Just because former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight number one contender Chael Sonnen cut the 205-pound line, doesn't mean Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Champion Daniel Cormier isn't still dreaming of a future fight against Jon Jones. In fact, "DC" would break "Bones" wherever they're at, according to friend and training partner out of American Kickboxing Academy (AKA), Cain Velasquez (via MMA Fighting). Cormier still has one fight left on his Strikeforce Showtime contract and won't have much say in anything that happens inside the Octagon until after the new year. But even if both men win their next fights, would Jones being willing to fight a "relative unknown" who may not bring in boku pay-per-view bucks?
