On Jones: "If I was ever offered that fight, there would be no hesitation on signing the contract. I'd do it." "I think it's a good matchup and I really do think he's the best," Cormier said." I think he's the best. ... As I prepare for my fight with Dion, I'm preparing for Junior dos Santos, I'm preparing for Jon Jones, I'm always preparing for the best guy." On Mir: "That's the that fight I want," Cormier said. "Listen, Frank Mir and I have some unfinished business. I had put in a full camp training camp for Frank, and to not get to fight him at the end of it was disappointing. So hopefully I get through this fight with Dion, hopefully the hand holds up this time and I don't break it or anything, and then I can win the fight and move on to Frank. I would like to fight Dion in January, then hopefully I know the montreal card is filling up pretty nicely, but I'd like Frank and I to be on the one after that." "There aren't many guys you're going to get whose name value is as high as Frank Mir," Cormier said. "Matt Mitrione, who main evented a UFC card over the weekend, then you come to find that Cheick Kongo was also offered the fight, so, some pretty decent names were being thrown around. So when you get someone who hasn't fight in the United States before for Strikeforce ofr the UFC, its obviously going to be a drop-off in name value, but it's all relative to what I'm trying to do here. It's another step in my journey." "My first UFC fight is going to be against Frank Mir regardless of what happens," Cormier said. "There's a lot of decisions to make. I think the UFC has made it pretty clear that Alistair Overeem is the guy they want to fight next for the belt, he was pretty close to getting a title shot before the suspension. There's some work to be done for Cain and myself before that actually becomes our reality. I could lose to Dion Staring, I could lose to Frank Mir afterwards, I could be 3-4 fights away from a championship, or I could win both of those fights and then we really have a conversation to have." "I've never really been the one who calls guys out and tries to set my next fight and this fight or whoever," Cormier said. "But, so when they said this is the guy you're fighting, it's not my job to make fights, I tried that and people kinda jumped down my throat for trying to fight Jon Jones. That's really not me. But obviously that's kind of the way it needs to be now."
