Jon Jones Guarantees There Will Be No Trilogy Bout with Daniel Cormier


It’s a Daniel
fight week, so it’s only natural that plenty of
discussion will revolve around whether “DC” will face rival
one more time before retirement.

Cormier is scheduled to defend his heavyweight crown in a rematch
with Stipe
at UFC 241 in Anaheim, Calif., on Saturday, and after
that, he claims that it’s Jones or bust.

“The ball is in my court now,” Cormier said on
Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show
on Monday. “I get to decide whether I
want to fight Jon Jones, or I let him continue to fight guys like
and Corey
. Ultimately, for him to make the big bucks, we have to
fight each other.”

Jones owns two victories over Cormier, a five-round verdict at UFC
182 and a third-round TKO at UFC 214 that was overturned to a no
contest after “Jonny Bones” failed a drug test. Both of those bouts
came at light heavyweight, and Cormier says a potential trilogy
match would also have to be contested at 205 pounds to “make right
what was wrong initially.”

“It’s only big fights for me,” Cormier added. “It’ll be Stipe
Miocic, and if I fight again, it’ll be Jones. It’s not going to be
anybody else.”

Jones quickly disputed that notion in a series of tweets. The
reigning light heavyweight king believes that Cormier has no
interest in enduring the potential trauma a third loss to the
Jackson-Wink MMA standout could bring. And the other option, a
trilogy bout at heavyweight, appears to be out of the question

“Despite what he says to the media, I will guarantee you guys there
will be no third fight,” Jones wrote. “No way will he lose that
weight again, no way will he be willing to reface those nightmares
that comes when facing the beast.”
