Daniel Cormier’s upcoming UFC Light Heavyweight Championship bout against Jon Jones is without question the biggest fight of his career. What better way to prepare for a fight with Jon Jones than to seek out the help of some of the best fighters in the world? That is exactly what Daniel Cormier is doing right now. Cormier already has Cain Velasquez and Luke Rockhold helping him to prepare, but he’s looking to add former Jon Jones opponent Lyoto Machida and the legendary Anderson Silva into this mix.

“I’ve got some friends and they put me in contact with some of the guys down in southern California, with Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida. I may down go there for a week. That’s a possibility. We haven’t worked out all the details, but that is a possibility and we’ll see what happens.”
“I tell Jon Jones, show me two guys who can beat my two main training partners, Cain Velasquez and Luke Rockhold. You show me your two who are going to prepare you better than my two. So I’m going to rely on my guys, man. I’m going to rely on Cain, I’m going to rely on Luke to help me become the UFC champion. I’m going to reach out a little bit, but I’m not going to stray very far from my comfort zone.”
