Jones On DC Trilogy: Don’t Hold Your Breath

This weekend at UFC 241, heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier looks to assert himself as one of the UFC’s greatest heavyweights as he has his rematch against Stipe Miocic.

Yet, many are looking at what Cormier will do next as he heads into retirement, as a possible trilogy between him and Jon Jones continues to be talked about.

Cormier told MMA Fighting last week that he’s not interested in a third fight with the current light heavyweight champion, but if there were to be a third fight, Cormier said it must be at 205 pounds.

Jones commented on it himself this week, saying he’s not looking to move up to the heavyweight division and feels the 40-year old Cormier is unable to make the weight anymore.

“I’ve been the light heavyweight champion for almost my entire MMA career, never have I moved up to challenge a heavyweight champion. I’m simply not interested in it right now, never seriously have been,” Jones wrote on Twitter this week. “I feel like the move is inevitable but as of right now, I’m dominating fights and making weight just fine.

“Daniel and I, not [rivalry], but beef started at the light heavyweight division and that’s where it should end, even though I could’ve sworn I ended this once or twice already. Despite what he says to the media, I will guarantee you guys there will be no third fight. No way he will lose that weight again, no way he will be willing to reface those nightmares that comes when facing the best.”

Cormier responded to Jones’ taunts and feels he has come out the winner in this rivalry.
