Cormier vs. Jones seems like the most logical fight to make but Cormier has been adamant about wanting more stringent drug testing if that fight is booked.
Cormier has already said that he plans on retiring in March when he turns 40 so that fight would need to be booked soon.
The other interesting part of this is that there hasn’t been as much talk about Brock Lesnar vs. Cormier lately. Lesnar has yet to sign a fight contract and time is running out for the fight to happen before March. If Cormier vs. Jones is booked then UFC would likely need to find someone else for Lesnar to fight…if Lesnar still wants to step into the Octagon.
Here is what Cormier said on Twitter after Jones’ KO win over Alexander Gustafsson.
