White Wants Jones-DC III Before Cormier Retires

While Dana White wanted Chuck Liddell to retire at 38, White wants his current heavyweight and light heavyweight champion to not retire on his 40th birthday.

While Liddell was riding a three-fight losing streak (all by knockout), Cormier is on an historic UFC run that White would love to see continue with a Jon Jones trilogy fight.

“I don’t know [if Cormier’s last fight will be next year],” White told TMZ Sports. “We don’t know that either yet. I think Cormier’s got a couple left in him.”

Cormier is eyeing a March showdown with Brock Lesnar as his final fight, but White hopes that win or lose that Cormier would wait for one more fight with Jones.

“That was what I would like. I would like to see Jones and Cormier fight at heavyweight but right now, Cormier’s team wants him to retire right now. They want him to retire right now. I hope we can get three more fights out of him.”
