UFC 214: Cormier vs

UFC 214: Cormier vs

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones is preparing for his rematch against current champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 214.

Jon Jones will take the walk to the Octagon inside Honda Center in Anaheim, California on Saturday night, after almost an 18-month hiatus due to a performance-enhancing drug suspension. Three days later it emerged that Jones tested positive for cocaine in an out-of-competition sample which was taken a month before the fight.

That quote can be applied to Jon Jones.

One of those men is Gustafsson.

But then I watched their first fight again and Jones was just so dominant that it is hard to imagine the fight going much differently. He just wishes Cormier wouldn't feel the need to use Jones' struggles as a way to prop himself up. I want to be one of the few stories you hear where I was ruining things but ultimately turned things around and became a hero.

A large percentage of fans seem to be in agreement.

Jones believes part of that is he has finally learned to be open about his flaws and at least somewhat embrace who he is instead of trying to portray a certain image in the media.

"I was winning fights while partying, and I just started to think like, I just started taking everything for granted and making mistakes", explained Jones.

"I respect her for accepting the fight".

The UFC light heavyweight champion clocked in at 205 pounds at the UFC 214 early weigh-ins on Friday, silencing critics who were skeptical Cormier would make the weight cut because of a controversy-marred weigh-in prior to UFC 210. The UFC made a decision to strip her of the title on June 19 due to her refusal to defend it and then booked Cyborg against promotional newcomer and current Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Megan Anderson for the vacant title. She had a lot of things to say about me, but she did it because she (treated) it like a business. "I like it. It motivates me".

"I like the energy, and I have friends who do capoeira", she said with a smile. I'm here to do a job.

'That's just the type of person I am, I'm reactionary'. "I've always been honest".

Cormier (19-1), a two-time Olympic wrestler, had never been taken down.

Anyhow, the EA Sports Twitter posted footage of the fight simulated in EA Sports UFC 2, and Jones won via knockout.

Jones may have even more to explain, but all characters are complex.

"It's really sad when you change opponents really close to the fight, but I think Tonya Evinger deserves to have the big platform", Cyborg said. But he wasn't able to take Jones down easily, and only did so once in the fight. Too many people are caught-up in the crossfire.

Jones hopes to show that side on Saturday. Jones never lost his belt inside the octogan, but was stripped of the belt because of a number of instances in which he got in trouble outside of fighting. Until he gets the better of the man he succeeded as title-holder, will there be an asterisk beside his reign as champion? "That's all I truly care about". We're what we do with it. "If I win on Saturday night, I'm the greatest fighter ever".

He is one victory from tying Michael Bisping at 20 for most UFC wins.
