Dana White: Cormier and Jones will not fight in the heavyweight division

UFC president Dana White said that the third bout between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones will not happen in the heavyweight limit.

"They will not do it in the heavyweight division. Jones is the greatest of all time, Cormier is one of the greatest, both want to remain champions forever. I will not persuade them. If they want to fight at 205 pounds, I'm not going to argue with them. They are two of the biggest kings in this sport. If they want something, they get it.

"So I want to see this fight in the heavyweight division, but they will not do it. Jones said "no", and Cormier said "no." Cormier does not want to beat him in the heavyweight division..."
