Cormier Considering April Rematch Against Jon Jones @ MSG

Since Jon Jones has been reinstated by the UFC there have been whispers about whether or not he would fight lightweight champion Daniel Cormier.

Initially Jones wanted an April fight at MSG, but Cormier was only open for a rematch at Madison Square Garden on his terms.

He had this to say on the matter:

“I’ve given [the UFC] a couple dates I’d be willing to look at. Maybe you guys will know something soon. I’m going to make my decision as the champion sooner rather than later. Just put it like that. If I had to be completely honest, in terms of how historic it would be and how big it would be, obviously that would be a big deal. Now, for it to be Madison Square Garden, I think honestly Helwani, if it is the Garden, April 23 maybe becomes more intriguing. Obviously, like I said, for historic purposes it would be cool to fight in Madison Square Garden. But we don’t want to really give this guy what he wants. Yeah, yeah. I guess I’ll think about April 23.”
