Daniel Cormier Refuses to Fight Cain Velasquez

New UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez had Daniel Cormier in his corner Saturday night as he defeated Junior dos Santos at UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II.

Following his decision victory over dos Santos, Velasquez joined Cormier on the set of Fuel TV's post-fight show. And, as expected, the question of whether the two American Kickboxing Academy teammates would ever fight came up.

"I wouldn't (fight Cormier)," Velasquez said. "This is my friend, my teammate, my coach. If you want this fight, go to AKA. We're going to fight for free (every week in training)."

Cormier echoed those thoughts, just as he has done since asked about them. The former Olympian, who will join the UFC after competing in January for Strikeforce, said that Velasquez is going to make him do something he hasn't had to for a while: cut weight.
