UFC 214 fight card preview
Jones vs Cormier 2
Cormier (19-1) and Jones (22-1) first met at UFC 182 in January 2015 with Jones winning by unanimous decision. That gave Cormier, the current light heavyweight champion, the first loss of his MMA career. Then, Jones’ career went into a downward spiral. Three weeks before his scheduled title defense against Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 in May 2015, Jones got into a hit-and-run auto accident in Albuquerque involving a pregnant woman, who broke her wrist.
The UFC stripped Jones of the belt, suspended him indefinitely and replaced him with Cormier, who went on to submit Johnson.
Cormier went on to defend his belt at UFC 192 in October 2015, defeating Alexander Gustafsson in a back-and-forth bout that was one of the greatest fights in UFC history. Cormier and Jones were scheduled to meet at UFC 197 in April 2016, but Cormier suffered an injury. Jones went on to face Ovince Saint Preux for the interim title with Jones winning by unanimous decision.
Right after Jones’ victory, once again, the UFC booked the rematch for the main event of the historic UFC 200 last July. But Jones fouled up once again, being pulled 72 hours before the event after the UFC learned he failed a drug test. He ended up being suspended for one year with the punishment finishing up earlier this month.
