Jon Jones is open to a potential fight against Daniel Cormier but at this point he'd rather the former Olympian just drop weight and get in the fight.

Agree. After the Mir fight drop it and earn a shot against Jones.

Would be weird to see Cormier and Gegard in the same weight class with Gegard who looks like he could make WW.

Cormier wouldn't have ducked Sonnen on 6 days notice.

Why?! He isn't as talented nor as experienced, with a big cut it would be an easy win. Dude is flabby, for him to do it right it would take a year.

i think if he does it right he could be a force at LHW. he's nearly as small as some of the LHW's now so it would definitely have to be done properly. i do hope that he moves down though. it just seems like the logical move.

goes both ways, jones could just go up in weight classes and stop talking about it. if i recall correctly, jones started this by saying his wresting is better than cormiers

this is what Cormier is planning on doing, but Jones is able to make HW, he even stated that one day he'll fight at HW..let's see if Jone's can stop Sonnen's TD's..cuz Cormier's wrestling then both Jone and Sonnen...
