In the main event will be a battle between light-heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (17-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) and ex-champ Jon Jones (21-1 MMA, 15-1 UFC), as we all know these two are longtime rivals and we know its going to be a good fight as Jon is wanting his belt back.
Jones defeated Cormier via unanimous decision at UFC 182 in January 2015. Jones was stripped of his title and suspended following an April hit-and-run arrest, with that being said, Cormier claimed the vacant belt with a submission win over Anthony Johnson. A couple months later Cormier defended his title and won with a split-decision over Alexander Gustafsson in October.
