It seems as though we’ve been seeing the“will they, will not they“ saga of Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier for an eternity. The rivals first met at UFC 182 on January 3, 2015. Since then, this rematch was scheduled on two separate occasions, at UFC 197 and UFC 200, but materialized. So, here we are again, waiting to see if Jones vs Cormier II actually happens but this time it is scheduled for UFC 214.
Jones was a -210 favorite with Cormier, Whenever these two met at UFC 182 back to the gold. „Bones“ was tabbed as a -340 fave in UFC 197 and then around the -270 range for battles using“DC“. Jones is a favorite for the UFC 214 bout according Bovada.
With Bones defending his belt eight consecutive occasions prior to being stripped of his name, jones had the third-longest series of title defenses in UFC history. Despite being 29 years old, with the one loss coming from disqualification against Matt Hamill at 2010 he has a career record of 22-1. Jones has a valid claim to being the best fighter to enter the Octagon, Although his recent victory over Ovince Saint Preux was fairly lackluster.
Cormier has parlayed his size and wrestling pedigree to a 19-1 professional record. Especially DC is 6-1 with three of those wins coming by submission.
