Daniel Cormier Continues to Campaign for TUF Coach Spot Opposite Jon Jones

Strikeforce heavyweight grand-prix winner, Daniel Cormier continues to campaign for a future role as coach on “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show opposite none other than UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones.

Cormier, speaking via Sherdog, said:

“I’m a heavyweight right now. Until they offer me a fight with Jon Jones, fighting for the light heavyweight championship and coaching ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ and stuff, yeah, I’m fighting at heavyweight. I think Jon Jones right now is the greatest light heavyweight of all time. Why? Look at the five guys that he’s beaten to retain his belt and become the UFC champion. When you look at guys like Rashad Evans and those guys, go back and look at their opponents and you go, ‘My goodness, man.’ How in the world is every single fight against a guy like that? Jon beat ‘Shogun,’ ‘Rampage,’ Rashad, Machida and Vitor Belfort all in a row. How insane is that?”

“I think [TUF] gives the fans a chance to get to know me better, to get more people getting to know me and watching me over the course of three months. It would give me some time to actually get my weight down and feel comfortable. It would do a lot of good. … At the end of it, you’d get to see a really big fight.”
