Tonight’s main event of UFC 214 is the most heated rivalry in mixed martial arts. UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier looks to avenge the only blemish on his record when he takes on his bitter rival and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones. The course of Cormier’s career has nearly hitchless, a unanimous decision loss to Jones being his only defeat. Unfortunately for DC, people will never recognize how great he is until he either retires or defeats Jones.
Jon Jones is by far one of the greatest talents in MMA history. Him winning fights isn’t the problem, it’s him staying out of trouble. If Jones would stay out of trouble with the law and USADA, he would be talked about with potentially the most title defenses in a row. If he can win tonight, let’s hope he can stay out of trouble.
A loaded card with three title fights is on our docket for tonight. Here are my picks for tonight:
UFC Light Heavyweight Championship: Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones
UFC Welterweight Championship: Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia
UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship: Cris “Cyborg” Justino vs. Tonya Evinger
Donald Cerrone vs. Robbie Lawler
Jimi Manuwa vs. Volkan Oezdemir
