Dana White was asked about the possibility of doing Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones 3. However, there are some obstacles to getting it done.
Cormier will fight Stipe Miocic with the heavyweight title on the line at the UFC 252 pay-per-view event on August 15th. Cormier has stated that this will be his retirement fight.
Jones has expressed interest in moving to heavyweight, but is still in a clash with the UFC over money.
Regarding Jones and Cormier, their first fight went down back on January 3, 2015, at UFC 182 where Jones picked up the decision win. The second fight went down when the UFC light heavyweight champion lost to Jones by third-round knockout in the main event of UFC 214. That fight went down in July 2017.
Dana White On Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones 3
“There is no plan,” White said (H/T to MMA Junkie). “I’m going to watch the fight on Saturday, I’m going to see who wins, and then on Tuesday there will be a matchmaker meeting, and we’ll go in and start talking about what’s next.”
