Take the fight with me, Jon Jones,Cormier said. “There are no tune-up fights in the UFC. Try to get your title back. Come meet your boy ‘DC,’ come get this money. Let’s get money together and give the people in Anaheim a show. No tune-up for Jon Jones, he gets to come and get beat by me this time. We’re fighting right now or he doesn’t get to fight me. It’s my rules, I’m the champ now.”
However, number two ranked Daniel Cormier has also set his sights on number seven ranked Jimi Manuwa (17-2) thereafter defeating the now-retired Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (22-6) on April 8 at UFC 210 inside the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York although it is the lucrative encounter with Jones which has the sports universe buzzing.
