It feels like we’ve been watching the”will they, won’t they” saga of Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier for a lifetime. The opponents met at UFC 182 on January 3, 2015. Ever since then, this rematch was scheduled on two different occasions, at UFC 197 and UFC 200, but materialized. Here we are again, waiting to see if Jones vs Cormier II happens but this time it’s advised for UFC 214.
Jones was a -210 favorite with Cormier closing at +170, when these two first met at UFC 182 back to the gold. “Bones” was tabbed as a -340 fave at UFC 197 and then around the -270 range for fights with”DC”. Jones is now a favorite for the UFC 214 bout according to Bovada.
Jones had the series of title defenses in UFC history before being stripped of his title, with Bones protecting his belt on eight consecutive occasions. Despite being 29 years old, with the one loss coming by disqualification against Matt Hamill in 2010 he has a career record of 22-1. Jones has a claim to being the best fighter to enter the Octagon Although his recent success over Ovince Saint Preux was rather lackluster.
Cormier has parlayed his dimension and phenomenal wrestling pedigree to a 19-1 professional record. Since dropping down to light heavyweight, DC is 6-1 with three of the wins.
