"It got serious really quick and I started talking to my management team, firstly my management and my team".
The fight must happen by Dec. 31, 2018, and be a UFC match for action. While Cormier has a strong wrestling background, Jones is skilled with his punches and knees.
At this time, it seems like the UFC and Jones are both angling for a superfight with former UFC heavyweight champion (and current WWE Universal champion) Brock Lesnar. Cormier stepped in as a late replacement for Jones and captured the vacant 205-pound title.
It was billed as a grudge match and it lived up to expectations. "We need to expand our sport, so why not be the guy to take part in that?"
"That was so disappointing".
Brock Lesnar last fought at UFC 200 in July of 2016, defeating Mark Hunt in a fight that was ultimately overturned to a No Contest ruling after Lesnar popped hot on multiple pre-fight drug tests.
"Unlike when Albuquerque's Holly Holm won the UFC bantamweight title two years ago, few elected officials in New Mexico openly congratulated Jones after his win".
A move up to heavyweight has always seemed inevitable for Jon Jones, but it may be coming sooner rather than later.
DC looked lost during the brief interview but did utter the most meaningful statement of the night when he admitted that if he didn't win any of their fights there wasn't much of a rivalry.
"I thought the fight was going well". Right off the bat, his guillotine is phenomenal. and I was like man ... you could end the fight [with that].
In the co-main event, Tyron Woodley retained the welterweight title against Demian Maia. "Stay in step with WWE.com for all the latest on this developing story".
"We're serious about it, and it would be great for the MMA world", Jones said. "For the Cyborg Nation fans who were expecting the third belt, here it is".
