Daniel Cormier

The recently retired two-weight UFC champion Daniel Cormier thinks his long-time rival Jon Jones needs to fight Israel Adesanya as soon as possible, as the New Zealander is only getting better with each fight.

Jones and ‘Stylebender’ have been going back and forth on social media since the latter defended his title by stopping Paulo Costa inside two rounds at UFC 253 last month.

Speaking at media day on ‘Fight Island’ Cormier gave his thoughts on the ongoing war of words between his former foe Jones and 185lb king Adesanya, he said.

“Jones wants to fight him. Everybody talks about Jones, but Jones is a fighter. He’ll fight you, he’ll fight anybody. And he wants to fight Adesanya. But Izzy won’t even fight him, which is the most—It’s like picking on somebody constantly but at a distance. Like, I’m away from you.

“I’m not saying Adesanya’s scared, but Adesanya says, ‘I need my time. You said you were going to heavyweight 10 years ago. You’re finally doing it now, why can’t I have time?’ It’s very fascinating the way that these two interact. It’s nasty, but these rivalries tend to get nasty. Jones and I, it was not nice. They tend to get nasty, but that makes it fun for fans.”

Cormier is excited to see the match-up and says it’s in Jones’ best interest to fight ‘Stylebender’ sooner rather than later.

“I hope they fight at some point,” Cormier said. “I think it’s a very interesting matchup and I think that Adesanya is just improving every time out. So if I’m Jones I’m fighting him sooner than later if I can get him in there. Because remember, [Adesanya’s] only been here for a couple of years and now he looks like he’s gonna hold the belt forever.” (Transcribed by MMA Fighting)

Do you agree with Daniel Cormier? Does Jon Jones need to fight Israel Adesanya now before he gets too good?

Jan Blachowicz has called out Jon Jones

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Jan Blachowicz has called out former champion, Jon Jones by claiming that the American has moved to Heavyweight to avoid his ‘Legendary Polish Power.’ (H/T MMA Fighting.)

Speaking to Submission Radio, Blachowicz said Jon Jones would be his best opponent but he admits a fight against Jones is unrealistic.

“For me, the best (opponent) would be Jon Jones,” Blachowicz said. “But I think this is not real. It’s not gonna happen so I think that my next opponent is gonna be the winner between (Glover) Teixeira and Thiago (Santos). But also, Adesanya also is really good. So we will see. We’ll have to wait a little bit but for me, personally, the best would be Jon Jones. He promised me this fight after I knocked out Corey (Anderson) and I’m waiting for him. I believe in the future that I’ll catch him somewhere, some day, anywhere.”

Jan Blachowicz went on to say that his recent performance against Dominick Reyes may have made Jones scared of a future fight between the two.

“You see what I did with Dominick, he just escaped because he doesn’t want to lose against me. I understand that. He’s afraid and (so) he went to heavyweight. . . He just wants to escape from the Legendary Polish Power, that’s why he went to heavyweight. He’s afraid of the Legendary Polish Power.”

Blachowicz recently became the UFC’s Light Heavyweight champion after he knocked out Dominick Reyes at UFC 253. The Pole claimed the belt after Jones vacated it whilst making his ambition to move up to heavyweight clear.

Jones however did tease him coming back to the Light Heavyweight division, tweeting after Blachowicz’s win at UFC 253, the former champion said: “Would you guys be annoyed if I went back and grabbed my belt real quick?”

Jones has also been talking up a potential super fight with Middleweight Champion, Israel Adesanya. The pair have been going back and forth on Twitter for a while.

Do you think Jan Blachowicz will beat Jon Jones if the pair ever meet?
