Daniel Cormier is doing everything that he can to ensure a victory against Jon Jones and take the UFC Light Heavyweight title from him. He is going as far as brining in other fighters, Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida.
“I’ve got some friends and they put me in contact with some of the guys down in southern California, with Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida. I may down go there for a week,” Cormier revealed on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour.
“That’s a possibility. We haven’t worked out all the details, but that is a possibility and we’ll see what happens.”
Cormier (15-0) has six knockouts, four submissions and five decision victories in his MMA career. In his last five fights he has beaten the top names that MMA has to offer. He beat Josh Barnett via unanimous decision at Strikeforce – Barnett vs. Cormier on May / 19 / 2012 and Dion Staring via TKO at Strikeforce – Marquardt vs. Saffiedine on Jan / 12 / 2013.
