Daily Debate results: In what weight class should a Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier trilogy happen if the fight gets made?
Both champions have admitted they have interest in a trilogy bout, and fans would certainly tune in for the next chapter in this intense rivalry. But right now, there seems to be some debate over the terms of the fight. Jones doesn’t believe Cormier will be willing to cut down again to 205 pounds, even if “DC” has said that’s the most ideal scenario. Meanwhile, “Bones” admits he’s not willing to move up to heavyweight and give Cormier a possible advantage.
Of course, Jones earned decisive wins in each of their first two meetings, even if one was later overturned to a no contest. So does it make sense to do it again at light heavyweight? Or would a change in the details of the scenario make for a more interesting clash?
That was the question we asked in our latest MMA Junkie Radio Daily Debate.
