Daniel Cormier (10-0) wants to compare resumes with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (17-1) to prove that he’s the best fighter.
“When you look at my record at 10-0 as a professional and look at Jon Jones’ record when he was 10-0, who was his toughest guy,” said Cormier to Fight Hub TV. “Stephan Bonnar and he did not finish him. I have fought higher caliber opponents at this stage in my career than Jon did in his at 9-1; His tenth fight was Matt Hamill.”
Jones lost to Hammill via DQ for illegal elbows in a fight many said Jones was dominating.
Cormier has one heavyweight fight left on his Strikeforce contract that ends on the January 12 card. He will sign with the UFC following that fight and said he will only fight Jones if Cain Velasquez (10-1) becomes the heavyweight champion in his late December fight.
“I am totally content at staying at heavyweight,” said Cormier. “My diet is pretty much whatever I want, I don’t need to cut really any weight and I still am fast and able to compete with a lot of people in my weight class, why move from it?”
