Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones UFC 214 Cormier vs. Jones 2 Results Justyn Likes

Featuring three title fights, the latest UFC live event happening at the Honda Center on Sunday (Manila time), has many viewing it as one of the biggest fight cards to date from the organization. But the main focus of the night undoubtedly will be the main event. Jones is as flawless a fighter as you could realistically dream of, amassing a 21-1 record in his near-decade domination of the light heavyweight division, that his lone loss coming off a bullshit disqualification in a fight he was about to finish. But he wasn't able to take Jones down easily, and only did so once in the fight. It's still widely said that he is still undefeated. This defeat was not a disputed one. Cormier has not been afraid to bring up Jones' struggles for the past two years, but it is apparent that it is not working as well as he thought.

Cormier is the second-best light heavyweight in the world and one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the sport today. Can he do so a second time?

It's a rivalry that has assumed the proportions of a saga.

UFC 214 star appears keen on a fight with Beast IncarnateWhat's the story?

The last time Jon Jones was inside the octagon, he defeated Ovince Saint Preux via decision and looked to have a lot of ring rust in April of previous year. My guess is most fans think he got the nickname for all of the devastating knockouts in his career, highlight reel finishes where he "posterized" his opponents, similar to getting massively dunked on in the National Basketball Association.

Cormier won the second round of their first fight by making it a dog fight and must push for that again. The question was when.

Oh, and before walking out of the cage, Jones delivered a challenge.to BROCK LESNAR! Instead of allowing Gustafsson to circle freely back into the middle of the cage, Cormier immediately comes after him, keeping the pressure on.

For Jones, he believes his past mishaps were played in part by becoming so big at such a young age. He was charged with driving under the influence and rightfully stripped from the belt by the organisation.

Jones returns after a yearlong suspension following a USADA violation that occurred days before Jones and Cormier were set to face off at UFC 200. I've yet to have that fight where we see me pour it all on. "My nickname came from my first fight poster".

Donald Trump Tweet-Rages After John McCain Kills Obamacare Skinny Repeal
While several Democrats clapped when McCain cast his "no" vote, the mood remained sombre in the chamber after the defeat. From passage, the bill could go straight to the House floor for a vote, or move into a conference committee.

Cormier, shocked that Jones - of all people - would sit in judgement of a mistake, fired back angrily.

Cormier agrees with Jones that their extreme competitiveness had led to their mutual searing dislike.

A rematch with Cormier was scheduled again for April 2016, but Cormier was forced to pull out with an injury. "But the reality is for me, I do need to win this fight".

There's no telling how the fight between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones at UFC 2014 will turn out. And let's not forget, Jones hasn't fought in 18 months, and only twice in the last three years.

The promotion of the fight was done perfectly, with spectators waiting tirelessly to watch their two favourite fighters settle their scores in the octagon. He is a family man who runs a youth wrestling program and communication skills that have made him one of the most promising commentators the sport of mixed martial arts has produced.

New Yorker Jones insists he will put on a better performance than he did last time against bitter rival Cormier, 38, who is No 3 in the pound-for-pound rankings.

"I know I can beat that man". Now, he has a chance to back his words.

Since their first meeting, however, Cormier has become more comfortable sticking to his opponent, and has developed better tools for pressuring. Until he gets the better of the man he succeeded as title-holder, will there be an asterisk beside his reign as champion? Cormier has very good footwork for the weight class and does well to close distance and force opponents to fight him at close range. It is nearly poetic to see him clear out the division to make his way towards Jones to avenge his loss.
