Daniel Cormier Dominates Dan Henderson, Calls Out Jon Jones

ufc 173

Daniel Cormier dominated Dan Henderson Saturday night in the co-main event of UFC 173 and called out Jon Jones after.

The victory pushed Cormier’s record to 15-0 and he made no bones about wanting to square off with “Bones” for his UFC light heavyweight title next.

“Jon Jones, you can’t run away from me forever,” Cormier said. “I’m that kid at the wrestling tournament who is always in your bracket. You better hurry, because I’m only getting better.”

Cormier had no trouble taking Henderson (30-12) down time and time again in a battle of former U.S. Olympic wrestlers. “DC” made sure to let Jones know he would do the same thing if they meet up.

“Nobody can wrestle me,” Cormier said. “If I decide to take Jon Jones down 100 times, I will take him down 100 times. This is my Octagon. I’m the man.”

After winning the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix with wins over Josh Barnett an Antonio Silva, Cormier came to the UFC and defeated Roy Nelson and Frank Mir before moving to light heavyweight. He was convincing in his 205-pound debut earlier this year, dominating Patrick Cummins.

Jones is scheduled to meet Alexander Gustafsson next, with the bout rumored for August. The two fought to a decision last year.

    I’ve been saying this for a while, Cormier will dominate Jones. He’s physically on another level and his Olympic level wrestling will be something Jones will not be able to overcome.

  • Screenplaya says:

    I am not sure Cormier WILL dominate, but if Bones doesn’t gameplan correctly, I am sure Cormier CAN dominate him. If Jones uses his range, works on his movement, and jams elbow into Cormier’s face with every takedown attempt, it could be a long night for Cormier.

    But, this is the fight we need to see. We need it now.

  • Niv says:

    I know it’s hard to go against Jones, but Cormier won the Syrikeforce HW GP beating some serious HW fighters along the way. I think Cormier will have no issue at all with Jones size and range, I simply can’t wait to see this fight.
