11:12 AM ET 07.31 | UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is used to people eyeing his title and answering questions about potential challengers, but when he was asked about a potential match up down the line with former Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix champion Daniel Cormier, Jones dismissed Cormier as a serious contender for his title and dismissed the current heavyweight as irrelevant in the division. Jones continued to seem irritated by the question of whether Cormier deserved a shot at the 205-pound with a win over Roy Nelson and he made it clear that it was not a question he was interested in answering.

Nobody other than Daniel Cormier views him as the top contender. Cormier needs to pipe down a bit and earn his title shot like everyone else.

Cormier hugged Mir for 3 rounds...that doesn't impress ANYONE, certainly not Jones...
