UFC: More than champion title on the line for Cormier and Jones

Posted July 31, 2017

At UFC 214, a new chapter will be written in the long history of Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.

Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino (-1100) is a major favourite against Tonya Evinger (+650) as she defends her women's featherweight title. In it, Jon Jones enjoys a pancake breakfast, Cyborg gets a mani-pedi, while Tyron Woodley and Demian Maia do interviews and sign autographs for fans. "I think he does a great job, and he knows what he's looking for, and he's experienced enough to know what I need if I do win this fight".

Following yesterday's (Thurs. July 28, 2017) open workouts at the UFC Gym, Cormier spoke to the media to respond to Jones' comments about having arrived in the UFC during the wrong era. "Bones" Jones turned himself in and later posted bail, but the damage to his reputation was already done.

"I like the energy, and I have friends who do capoeira", she said with a smile.

Potential issue: Would Jones and Lesnar even agree to the fight?

Jon Jones is a prodigy.

At the UFC 210 weigh-ins, Cormier initially clocked in at 206.2 pounds, but stepped on the scale for a second time and somehow managed to lose 1.2 pounds to make weight.

There is still some way to go before Brock Lesnar returns to the UFC but Mark Hunt would not be surprised if they rolled out the red carpet for the convicted doper. While Jones lives his madcap life, Cormier is a former Olympic wrestler with a late-blooming MMA career and a stable family existence in the Bay Area. The two fighters have a lot of animosity with one another and seem eager to get inside the cage and trade blows.

One of the most dominant and feared fighters in the sport for the better part of the last decade, Cyborg was often discussed as a possible opponent for Ronda Rousey during her reign atop the women's bantamweight division, but there were two major stumbling blocks to making the fight happen.

Jones' yearlong suspension has ended, and the UFC put him right back in a title shot with Cormier, who dutifully defended the belt during the mercurial ex-champion's absence. Cormier has been dogging Jones ever since, accusing him of being a drug addict and a cheater. All Jones has to do is win Saturday and stay clean. Even in the last 12 months, UFC 205 in November at Madison Square Garden and UFC 202 last August were arguably stronger top-to-bottom, and the UFC 200 card featured significantly more star power ...

When Jones blew his title shot and received a yearlong suspension past year, he also cost Cormier a great deal of money by forcing their bout's cancellation. "Would that not be the ultimate 'f*ck you?' I think he'll win again after I'm done".

There was much worse to come for Jones just three months later. As fight day draws near, we take a look at all the names and faces poised to make a splash and possibly steal the show in a stacked night of fights.
