UFC Quick Quote: Jon Jones glad Daniel Cormier has a commentating career to fall back on

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

"I actually love that he's a commentator. More days he's out there in front of the camera, I just get time to hang out in the gym and get that much farther ahead of him. Let him stay in the limelight, practicing for his career after I beat him."

-- It isn't unusual to have successful mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters take on a second career while they're still at the top of the fighting game.  Like Dominick Cruz and Michael Bisping, Daniel Cormier has been moonlighting as an analyst for UFC Tonight and UFC on FOX Sports. Something that makes Jon Jones happy, as "Bones" tells FOX Sports he loves the fact "DC" has another career to fall back on after he beats him for a second time. The duo is set to duke it out in the main event of UFC 197 on April 23, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada for Cormier's light heavyweight strap. For more on that massive upcoming rematch click here.
