Cormier says UFC 200 rematch with Jones is life or death

“There has to be a win. This is do or die for me. This is the ultimate in competitiveness. This is the ultimate top dog. This is it. This is the big one. I can’t go 0-2 against the man. I said to Jon I’m ready to die to beat you and he said be prepared to do that. I don’t think he understood the truth in those words. There is no coming back from this for me. This is it. All my dreams are crushed if I don’t win this fight. You don’t get a third chance against a guy and I’m not confident that anyone else could be Holly Holm in this division. I’m the one that has to do it. Because, no disrespect to Alexander Gustafsson or Anthony Johnson, I’ve fought them and neither one of those guys could beat Jon Jones. I’m the only one that could do it. This is life or death for me.”

-Daniel Cormier talks to about the unmatched importance of his rematch with Jon Jones at UFC 200 on Saturdaynight.
