The MMA community has been waiting for this rematch for over two years!  It’s finally here! The UFC’s 205 lbs interim champion Daniel Cormier will test his champion worthiness against the real champion Jon Jones.  Let’s keep it real, while Daniel Cormier is a great fighter, he only became champion after Jon Jones was stripped of the belt for actions outside of competition.  As usual, I’ll breakdown each fighter and then I’ll make my fight pick for UFC 214: Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier 2.

Daniel Cormier has an impressive overall MMA record of 19-1.  That one smudge on his record was to Jon Jones. Cormier has fought and beat some of the best fighters in the UFC including but not limited to legend Anderson Silva, Dan Henderson, Frank Mir and Josh Barnett.  Cormier is not a lay and pray wrestler either.  He has 6 KO/TKO’s on his resume as well as 6 submission. Cormier can and will finish a fight! That’s what fans want to see.  

Jon Jones is virtually undefeated at at 22-1.  Virtually because the only smudge on his record was a DQ loss to Matt Hamill. MMA fans know that would have been a win with or without that downward elbow. Anyway, Jon Jones has been a runaway freight train taking out whatever is put in front of him.  He has 9 KO/TKO’s and 6 submissions on his resume.  

While on paper these two fighter look similar, there are differences that will make a big impact in this fight.  First, Jon Jones is the younger fighter.  Jon Jones is 30 while Daniel Cormier is 38.  At 38, you just never know how your body will respond while competing at the highest levels.  It could be a good day, or, father time can nudge you into having a bad day.  

The second difference is body type.  Jon Jones is long.  He can strike from a long distance with both kicks and punches that can surprise a fighter.  He’s also shown to be extremely athletic, creative and highly skilled at using his long limbs.  

Daniel Cormier is one of the best wrestles in MMA and that’s his advantage in most fights, but Jon Jones has shown to be able to adapt to any style, match and surpass any fighters perceived advantages.  

Look for this fight to start slow.  As the fight progresses, Jon Jones will begin to wear down Cormier just like in their first fight.  Cormier’s age will catch up.  Jon Jones will most likely turn the heat up and finish the fight in the 4th or 5th round!  The real champion will take the throne once again.
