What's the connection between Ezekial being called Son of Man by God and Jesus calling himself The Son of Man?

God addresses Ezekiel in this way to remind the prophet that his makeup is that of flesh and blood, thus heightening the great contrast between the human messenger and the divine Originator of the message. The same designation is applied to Jesus Christ about 80 times in the Gospels, clearly showing that the Son of God had come as a human, not as an incarnation.
You'll find the same designation is applied to the prophet Daniel (Dan 8:17).
