2) Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones II
The bad blood fueled rivalry between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier reached its boiling point at January 2015’s UFC 182 where Jones put on a dominant performance and defended his then held 205-pound strap against “DC”.
Fast forward to present time and Jones is no longer the champion, as he was stripped of his title in April 2015 due to legal issues. Instead, Cormier is the undisputed titleholder and the two were supposed to rematch at July’s UFC 200, but Jones was forced to withdraw from the bout just days prior after failing a USADA administered drug test. “Bones” was recently suspended one year for the violation.
Despite Jones’ issues outside of the cage, it’s clear that him and Cormier are in a league of their own at light heavyweight, and at some point, the two must settle the score once again.
