Cormier Wants Jones Stripped Of Title

MMA

Daniel Cormier is the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and even though he has stated in interviews that he is done with current UFC Interim Light Heavyweight Champion, he still thinks one more thing should be taken away from the troubled superstar.

Cormier thinks that the UFC should take the interim championship off of Jones, who is still waiting on a ruling about how a recently failed drug test will affect his career, Cormier was discussing this on Brian Stann’s Toe-2-Toe Radio Show.

"Now one thing I completely disagree with, completely - and I don't care who hears it - why in the hell would Jon still be the interim champion? That makes no sense. That makes absolutely no sense. They should not be fighting for an interim championship. That makes no sense at all. I don't even know why he would still be the interim champion. His ass was disqualified. Take that freakin' belt off of him. That's stupid. I hope to God Dana misspoke, because that makes absolutely no sense. They aren't fighting for some interim title if they fight. They can fight in the main event because it's a big fight but it's a fun fight. If they fight, they fight to determine the number one contender it's not some interim championship fight. That makes no sense at all... You'd have an interim champion defending the interim championship while the actual champion is actually still there. That makes no sense whatsoever” said Daniel Cormier.

A lot of folks would have also assumed that Cormier would have been competing on the upcoming UFC 205 card in Madison Square Garden, but that is not the case for the champion.

"At this point [that]'s not being discussed. Honestly, that window is gone for me. I need like 10 to 12 weeks because I enjoy my time away from the Octagon. I hang with my family, we go on vacation, we do fun things and I tend to eat quite a bit when I'm on vacation...So that time for me is gone. I couldn't compete to the best of my ability in New York. I wouldn't be comfortable taking a fight there” said Cormier.
