Chael Sonnen is somehow the #1 contender at light heavyweight, Machida and Henderson were fighting to be #1 contender until Gustafsson beat Rua to earn the honor. But now Dana White says Daniel Cormier might somehow be next for Jon Jones.

If Dana says everybody is next for Jones, then he won't be totally lying

DC probably has the best shot at JJ. I just wish he had time to develop his striking a little bit.

i know it's just another DW comment but i would love to see DC move down and fight jones. i think we would see jones have to stay on the feet because of DC's wrestling superiority. Make it happen Dana

If Cormier's chin is as good as his wrestling, I think he probably beats Jones, but he's going to have to face some adversity to beat Jones.

there's too much "politics" in choosing who the next "contenders" are for every weight class...people who deserve it more don't always get it

I agree it's annoying when they just throw random title fights together at times. Actually though, the UFC does an OK job of getting guys title fights when they deserve it. A bland guy needs more wins than a box office draw like a Sonnen or Faber but overall, if you keep winning, you get your shot eventually.

Also, let's be honest, Cormier looks like he would obliterate Hendo, Gustaffson or Sonnen anyway.

Midget Mini-Me Cormier needs to go on a Rampage diet.....then get a step-ladder in order to fight Daddy ChaCha.....good luck with both Danny.
