For months now, Cormier has been teasing a drop to LHW to fight champion Jon Jones. While at first glance it looked like he was just trying to hype a big fight opportunity, a former sponsor says there may be more to the story.

Unfortunately I think Jones beats Cormier as well...

Whoever made up this story did thier homework. Calling out DC for not being humble enough is exactly the kind of hypocritical bullshit I'd imagine floats around Bones brain.

I still really want to see this fight. DC has had a reach disadvantage in all of his fights (except maybe Monson) and has managed to win them all and JJ has never fought someone with DC's wrestling and power.

Middle Easy posted this story at the weekend.

The sponsor is the guy who runs TrauMMA. I believe the story, he seems pretty genuine.
