UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (22-1) might be in training camp for his scheduled rematch with Stipe Miocic (18-3) on August 18, but “DC” is still undecided on what he will do after that.
The one thing he couldn’t do during his Hall of Fame career was to defeat Jon Jones, but there’s a chance those guys could meet for a third time if the financial point of view is all set. The 40-year-old vet spoke to MMAFighting.com‘s Damon Martin and During the interview, Cormier said he’ll be the one who decides if a third fight with Jones materializes.
“When it comes to Jones, I know now with all that I’ve accomplished, I don’t need that fight,” Cormier said.
“I’ll be fine regardless but it will be something we revisit, me and my team, my management and everybody else and we’ll see if it’s something we want to do. Ultimately it will be my decision.”
Cormier went on to say that he’s no longer desperate in his quest to defeat Jones and feels he’s carved his own path in mixed martial arts.
“Things are different. I feel like Jones is competing so many times because he has to try and one, regain the faith of the fans, but also retake his place in the sport and I did that. My place is secure with no question marks, no issues in regards to what I’ve done. It would ultimately be up to me to see what I want to do.”
