Former UFC heavyweight champion and ESPN MMA analyst Daniel Cormier chats with Ariel Helwani about Jon Jones' recent public feud with UFC president Dana White. Cormier says he thinks Jones is serious about giving up his light heavyweight title because he's learned how to live without being the titleholder.

DC well said, Bring the PPV is the key however the fighters should have some basic SOP on how to rise through the ranks of the UFC, There has to be a standard paychart or bad things will happen

I can't believe I used to dislike DC. Perhaps it was because I was such a Jones fan at the time. But whatever.. DC is the man and is the best ambassador MMA has. Also, I think he is feeding Stipe some BS saying single leg all day. He's going for the KO with that big overhand right. 🤜💥🥇

It's the UFCs job to promote the fighters... if they arent getting numbers it's their fault. If you cant sale Jones v Nganno then it's your marketing... not the fighters.

Who cares if he vacates the title, give someone else a shot. Money is the route of all evil, it’s so ugly. There’s only one winner, the UFC. They’ll be around long after Jones retires.

Wah! If Jones gets millions, Dana (Don King) White won't get billions. The bald headed Don King should run Amway, not a major sports promotion.

Jones would do better in One FC and Bellator. Not essentially better fights but he could really bring more exposure to OneFC and Bellator. Those two promoters have fighters with wider skill sets and I feel that it could be a challenge for Jones.
Jon bones jones undefeated undisputed 🐐

DC is just sneakier than Jones, but he's the same kind of guy. Here he is doing his best to get rid of an opponent he COULDN'T BEAT. Last we saw him, he was poking Stipe Miocic in the eye and whining about him having to take the time to get it fixed. DC is slimier than Jones ever was, because he's in disguise, playing a role. But he has zero integrity.

Remember that DC is an employee of the UFC. Dana literally pays him to comment fights and promote the UFC.

Jones is just afraid of losing his bely and forever further tainting his legacy. Anyone with a shred of common sense would realize his PED use removes him from the GOAT discussion, but the clean Jones we have seen since his return is hardly a dominant champion. The judges didn't wanna take the record from him for such a close loss, but Reyes won. Arguably Santos won. I dont think he wants to fight too much more realizing that if he goes against a Stipe, Ngannou, Reyes he realizes losing is a very real possibility. Even a guy like Jan, even though he has been beaten by people Jones beat, has the potential to KO anyone in any fight. I think this is a convenient out to save face before he has to truly prove his dominance as a clean athlete. Maybe he can, but I think it is a very realistic possibility that is not the case. Jones is realizing that. Guys like Ngannou and Jan may be less skilled, but they always have a chance with those punches. Guys like Stipe, DC and Reyes would be even worse for him. They have the power and the skill to convincingly defeat Jones and show everyone the reality of his athletic mortality.

Why don’t fighters both MMA and boxing approach contracts in a percentage mindset. Whatever the total profit from the fight , you negotiate a percentage of that profit instead of a dollar figure. That way both the federation, promoters and the fighters have a vested interest in the fights success.

Maybe they should start giving people large one-time bonuses for moving up in weight and guarantee a certain amount of pay kind of like a steady half a million dollars a year or $1000000 a year plus bonuses and whatever else offered for people who carry the about. That would give everyone incentive to want the bell and I understand that already kind of is the incentive because when you become Champion you make more money but it's not guaranteed money it's just extra money because you are Champion so you getting more publicity they should guarantee the money and guarantee certain things that way people know for sure if they get that they're going to be living on Easy Street. That will give everybody a large incentive to try to get that belt which will also convince people to fight for less money because then they'll get a chance to get the belt which is Big Money. You should also give bonuses for everyone who decides to fight on one day notice or who decides to fight after having a year off or things like that. There's so many different ways he could take care of his Fighters and make them happy and he's choosing not to and that's what makes me sort of not respect Dana White in some ways.

"life doesn''t seem that different" is what we should take away from this interview. we spend so much time on certain things but without it, life would be the same. whether we can convince gsp is the goat and not jones or vice versa or something trivial...DOES NOT MATTER. lebron or Kobe or mj or shaq....it doesnt matter. use that energy on something good. you believe blm or alm ( if genuine because alm at times is misused and sort of veiled racism) , fight for that. that will make a difference. it's not entertainemnt.

I like how my alternate plan i should have followed in life was to be a UFC fighter but seeing these fuckers make 5 mil and still want more - I'd rather be poor hoping for 1 good pay day still. How denegrated must you be that 1 event yielding 5 milion is not enough. I would rather not stain myself with that greed
