-- UFC fans will get a chance to see Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier fight for the title at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas.
Jones and Cormier appeared on “Good Morning America” today when the announcement was made.
"Me and my team have been working extensively on a great strategy, game plan to beat Dan Cormier," said Jones. "I got thrown a last minute change of opponent, felt like I did great with the given circumstances and we’re ready to get back to my original plan, which is just to dominate Dan Cormier again.
Jones, the number one-ranked pound-for-pound fighter, defeated Ovince Saint Preux at UFC 197 last weekend. Cormier was sidelined by a shin injury that forced him to withdraw from the fight.
"I’m here, you know obviously, so the doctor’s appointment went well," Cormier said of his injury. "I made a lot of improvement in the last training camp and I don’t think in July that it should be a problem."
Cormier added, "I’ve been wanting to fight Jon for a long time, after he beat me last January. I feel great."
