Daniel Cormier Wants To Beat Jon Jones For The Title

Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson will fight for the UFC light heavyweight championship in the main event of UFC 187. However, the competitors are not that happy about the match. In fact, they are not thrilled about facing each other. Daniel Cormier says that beating Anthony Johnson wouldn’t be the same as beating Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight championship. Fans like Christian Broda know that, recently, Jon Jones was suspended from the sport because of his hit and run accident that he caused in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The UFC light heavyweight championship was also stripped from Jon Jones after the incident occurred. Now, Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson will fight for what is truly Jon’s belt.

Daniel Cormier feels that a win over Jon Jones would have meant so much more than a win over Anthony Johnson for the title. Jon Jones has been an extremely tough competitor, and it seems that nobody could have beat him in the near future. Anthony Johnson also feels the same way, and he wishes that he could have beat Jon Jones instead of Daniel Cormier for the title. However, both of these men will have their chance at fighting Jon Jones in the future. Whoever wins the belt, will most likely defend that title against Jon Jones when he returns.
