Daniel Cormier stepped on the scale Wednesday morning at 235 pounds. Minutes later he was informed that he had the opportunity to challenge UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones for his belt at UFC 178 in nine weeks.
Shortly after agreeing to go after the belt, Cormier then had to fend off Jones’ ninja tactics.
Check out Cormier’s appearance on UFC Tonight on Wednesday night, where he talked with Kenny Florian and Michael Bisping about how the fight came about, and Jones’ first salvo since the signing.
