Daniel Cormier finished with Jon Jones, will fight victor of Glover Teixeira versus Anthony Johnson
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is disavowing Jon Jones, now that “Bones” is confronting a conceivable suspension from United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in the wake of a fizzled drug test.
Most likely in light of the fact that Jones – bobbed from UFC 200 in the wake of popping for anti-estrogen operators – has held the division prisoner with his tricks outside the confine, which as of late had the top pound-for-pound warrior suspended from blended hand to hand fighting (MMA).
Cormier advised UFC Tonight that it’s an ideal opportunity to proceed onward.
Cormier: I'm going to fight the winner of Teixeira vs. Johnson. I don't care if Jon Jones comes back. I'm not going to reward him.

At 37, he might not have time, depending upon the length of the suspension.
Glover Teixeira will blast it out with Anthony Johnson at the up and coming UFC 202 pay-per-view (PPV) occasion, set for Aug. 20, 2016 inside T-Versatile Field in Las Vegas, Nevada. “Rumble” was put together by “DC” when they first went to war at UFC 187 in May 2015.
The Jones drug test failure, in the mean time, is still being investigated.
