Daniel Cormier Calls Out Jon Jones, Plans On “Taking (Him) Down”

Daniel Cormier slipped off his suit and put on his MMA gloves for a brief moment during the UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie post-fight show on Saturday night.

Cormier, who will face Roy Nelson later this year at UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3, was asked about comments made by UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones concerning his “cutting in line” for a title shot.

“When I hear his quote, it’s like a 16-year old girl. Jon Jones, grow up bud, we’re going to fight regardless of how you feel,” Cormier said. “And when we do and I’m cutting the line and you might as well pull the guard because I’m taking you down.”

The undefeated former Olympian is expected to join the ranks of 205 pounds following his bout with Nelson. Many have pegged him as an immediate title contender, but “Bones” feels others are deserving.
