One of the most important commentators in Ultimate, Daniel Cormier also joined the chorus of those who want to see the duel between Jon Jones e Alex Poatán. In a statement to his podcast with Chael Sonnen, 'DC' made a brief analysis of the possible clash between the light heavyweight (up to 93kg) and heavyweight (up to 120,2kg) champions.

“I'll tell you what Jones said: Now he can stick around because he said 'The options are great.' If I'm Jones, I fight Stipe, I beat Stipe, and then I ask the UFC to move Pereira up to heavyweight, knowing that you could take all that thunder because Jones vs. Pereira would be worth a huge payday (to the two fighters). Jones would be favored in a fight against Pereira if they fought. So it would be a great fight, though, I love Alex, man. It couldn’t have happened to a better guy,” Cormier said.


Last Saturday (29), at UFC 303, Poatan knocked out Jiri Prochazka again and defended the light heavyweight belt for the second time at the event held at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas (USA).

On the other hand, Jones hasn't stepped into the octagon for over a year, since finishing Cyryl Gane and won the heavyweight belt. A few months later, 'Bones' suffered a serious chest injury that prevented him from defending his title. The North American is expected to return to the octagon in November, when he will finally face Stipe Miocic, on the card scheduled for New York (USA).
