UFC 214 extended video preview for ‘Cormier vs Jones 2’

Reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier will run it back with former division kingpin Jon Jones at the upcoming UFC 214 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Sat., July 29, 2017 inside Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

“DC” and “Bones” were previously slated to throw down at UFC 200 last July; however, the bout was scrapped at the 11th hour after Jones was notified of a failed drug test by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). As a result, Cormier went on to fight (and defeat) Anderson Silva on short notice.

“Jones,” meanwhile, was hit with a one-year suspension which put Cormier into a title defense against Anthony Johnson at UFC 210, a victory which prompted a dejected “Rumble” to retire.

Sure, there are two more title fights taking place at UFC 214 (see them here and here), but this event — at least from a marketing standpoint — is all about the Cormier-Jones rivalry (and for good reason).
