UFC 153 is over, and now we can go back to posting outrageous things that Jon Jones says to get a rise out of his haters. After all, neither Jon Jones nor Anderson Silva want to fight one another, so the next logical thing is to proceed to the next person that Jon Jones doesn’t want to fight. Logistically, we don’t know how Daniel Cormier wanted to approach the idea of fighting Jon Jones considering they’re separated by approximately 50lbs when they compete. In any case, it appears as though Jon Jones is entirely too important to even consider giving the undefeated Strikeforce veteran an opportunity. Check out this excerpt from a recent ESPN UK interview.
“I’d be interested in a TUF season in the future, but it’d take the right opponent,” Jones told ESPN in a recent interview. “As far as Daniel Cormier saying he wants to coach against me, he would want that wouldn’t he?
“He’s relatively unknown, I want to do it when the fans are aware of both guys, and when it’s spunky and when it raises a lot of viewers. I’m not here to raise his stock.”
By that logic, if Wall Street had Jon Jones, the stock market would be soaring right now. We wouldn’t be in an economic recession and we certainly wouldn’t be struggling to fuel-up our Bentleys. We’re bummed that Jon Jones doesn’t feel like Daniel Cormier is a worthy opponent. Maybe in a few years, with enough hard work, Mr. Cormier can get lucky enough to get a signed autograph from the UFC light-heavyweight champion at a fan expo.
