And there's a lot more on the line than the UFC heavyweight title according to Cormier's trainer Mendez, who says Jones could be next for Saturday's winner.

Speaking to ESPN's Brett Okamoto, he revealed: "Whoever is victorious from the fight is gonna get offered a big money fight.

"And I believe it's gonna be against Jon Jones because Jon Jones has stressed he wants to go to heavyweight.

"And what better way for Jones to the kind of money he wants than to fight a Stipe or a DC for the heavyweight title."

He added: "That would make the fight that Jones would want.

"Obviously, he deserves more money, he's a major star, and he's the most decorated guy really in the light heavyweight division. He's never been beat. So, I think it's a logical choice."

Jones has cleaned up the UFC's light-heavyweight division as he flirts with a move to the heavyweight division.

Miocic vs. Jones would be huge, but Cormier vs. Jones III could be one of the biggest fights in UFC history.
