UFC 182 opens the year for the biggest MMA organization with a bang this Saturday (Dec., 3rd, 2014) as Jon Jones collides with Daniel Cormier. After all the drama leading up to the light-heavyweight title match, fans have been left clamouring for months. The bout is huge in so many ways, but who will walk away victorious?
We’ve seen a very ramped up version of “Bones” in the lead up, and a confident, collected “DC”. Perhaps the wrestler knows something we don’t, or maybe the best is yet to come for the already dominant 27-year old champion. Oddly enough, there are quite a few people backing Cormier for the win here, including six out of seven pros interviewed by MMA Interviews.
Johny Hendricks: Cormier by way of wrestling and power
Josh Barnett: Cormier by superior takedown game and quick hands
Anthony Pettis: Jones by championship experience
Khabib Nurmagomedov: Cormier by wrestling and spirit
Felice Herrig: Cormier by manhandle
Jamie Varner: Cormier by athleticism
Josh Thomson: Cormier by fighting smart
Wow, only one vote for Jon Jones to emerge victorious at UFC 182, by his fellow champion Anthony Pettis. Are we going to witness a change of the guard, or will Jones prove everybody wrong once again?
