Daniel Cormier is taking his upcoming title fight with Jon Jones at UFC 178 very serious. The undefeated, highly regarded Light Heavyweight contender revealed during an appearance on Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” on Monday that he may even bring in some familiar faces to help him train for the champ.

“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,” said Cormier. “I may down go there for a week, that’s a possibility,” he continued. “We haven’t worked out all the details, but that is a possibility and we’ll see what happens.”
