We are finally going to see the Jones/Cormier rematch.
UFC insider Ariel Helwani reported that the company is targeting Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier 2 for UFC 214 in July. The event takes place in Anaheim, California on July 29th.
It is yet to be determined whether this is the main-event of the card. Dana White stated publicly over UFC 210 weekend that he did not trust putting Jon Jones in a main event slot. Two of his last three main event fights have been cancelled.
Jon Jones last fought inside the Octagon at UFC 197 in April of last year. He won a unanimous decision against Ovince Saint Preux for the interim Light Heavyweight title. Before being stripped of the title in 2015, Jones was 9-0 as Light-Heavyweight champion.
Daniel Cormier is fresh off a win over Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson at UFC 210. Cormier has defeated Rumble twice and Gustaffson once as champion.
Who ya got? Will Jon Jones suffer from ring rust in his return? Can Daniel Cormier defy the odds? Let us know in the comments below!
