Daniel Cormier on Jon Jones’ removal from UFC 200: “This is very sad from a competitive and financial standpoint”

“To hear something like this is very sad from a competitive and financial standpoint. I don’t know exactly to explain how I’m feeling right now. I’m just very disappointed. I’ve worked really hard to prepare for this. You take care of what you can take care of and that’s what I did. More than anything, I’m really disappointed… I’ve trained hard and long. And if anyone would fight, I’d fight. But if it doesn’t make sense for the organization or for me, then it doesn’t make sense. So I really don’t know what’s next. It’s very difficult to ask someone to come into this situation… This chapter in my life had been dragging me and it’s made me ugly. I have to move forward and start to clear my mind in regards to him… I’m just here to fight and try to be an example for kids to look up to. If you do the right thing and be nice to people and care about people, people will care about you. I’ve made my mistakes, I’m trying to do things the best way that I can.”
