Jon Jones responds to Daniel Cormier: 'Just do it, stop talking about it'

Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

For the last several months, DC has been saying he'd be coming for Jones' belt after Cain Velasquez recaptured the HW title. Now that Cain's work is done and it looks like Cormier is on his way down, Jones has a message for him

After Cain Velasquez was granted a heavyweight title shot against Junior Dos Santos, Daniel Cormier has been questioned about what he'll do if his teammate won. Cormier never varied from saying he wouldn't fight his fellow AKA team member. Instead, he's been saying he'd rather head to the Light Heavyweight division and challenge Jon Jones for that belt.

Now that he toppled Dion Staring at Strikeforce's final show and Cain wrested his belt from JDS at UFC 155, Cormier seems ready to put his money where his mouth is. After TKOing Dion Staring, Cormier said he was ready to move down and "kick [Jones'] ass in the fall.".

Jon Jones heard the message loud and clear. Tuesday he had a response for Cormier on UFC Tonight:

You know, the guy is a tremendous athlete and I wish he would just do it and just stop talking about it. I am open to fighting the best guys in the world.

Going into the final Strikeforce event, Cormier seemed to be making the right step as he came in 8 lbs. lighter than his last fight. But before he gets to Jones, he need to get past former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir at UFC On Fox 7.

And first up for Jon Jones will be former Middleweight contender Chael Sonnen at UFC 159. The two were paired up as coaches for The Ultimate Fighter 17.
