Dana White discussed Daniel Cormier’s future and a possible Cormier vs. Jon Jones fight following Saturday night’s UFC 232 PPV. Highlights are below, per MMAjunkie:

On Cormier’s mindset: “I was talking to Cormier during the Jones fight. He was obviously very angry this week leading into this fight, and there was talk from his camp about him retiring without another fight, and maybe he was just going to fight one more fight. It sounds to me like Cormier’s ready to fight two or three more fights before he thinks about hanging it up.”

On what he sees in Cormier’s future: “You know me: I’m always the first to say when it’s time for somebody to retire. Cormier’s the man – it’s not time for him to retire.”

On Cormier’s reaction to the Jon Jones drug test controversy: “Cormier will fight anybody. Cormier hates Jones so bad. He was on a rampage this week, and he was being a bit of a drama mama this week. But I don’t blame him. They hate each other. When you hate somebody that bad, it brings out the worst in you.”
