Quote: Daniel Cormier Can Only Beat Jon Jones By Taking Him Down

"I didn't get here being stupid", Cormier said.

Jones returns after a yearlong suspension following a USADA violation that occurred days before Jones and Cormier were set to face off at UFC 200.

The main card will be broadcast live on PPV.

There is a lot of hype surrounding the bout as Jones and Cormier have quite the history. He's got his fat brother in the stands, talking about I'm going to cry. To come back from several years of personal and legal battles to regain his championship belt from his most hated rival would be nothing less than the most spectacular return to prominence that any champion has ever had. Especially if it's Cormier who withdraws. "Daniel Cormier has been one of the biggest sources of motivation I've had in the last two, 3 years and I thank him for that and for pushing me to a higher level", said Jones. "I'm really happy, this is what I have worked toward my entire career".

"My team said, 'You could beat Brock, '" Jones said. Aside from that fight and a possible showdown with Lesnar, there aren't any interesting opponents on the horizon for Jones.

Jones' victory was one of three title fights on the pay-per-view card. Cormier's beaten way more elite fighters than Conor McGregor, and has less losses on his record than Demetrious Johnson. He won a decision over Ovince St. Winning or losing a UFC fight won't hamper Lesnar's value to WWE in the least to my way of thinking.

And he had a chilling message for the former UFC heavyweight champion, who announced his retirement from MMA back in March. Manuwa and Cormier couldn't be more different, and very little of the game plan Jones has in place for Cormier would be applicable against Manuwa. Saturday night will be about their rivalry, Sunday morning will be about their legacy.

Celtics select Jayson Tatum with No. 3 pick in draft
Dustin Pedroia, who told a great roast story about David Ortiz the night before, brought the big fella to tears in the pre-game. Ojeleye has a great chance of making the Celtics roster, depending on who the team can sign during the rest of this offseason.

Jones, who fights out of Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, laughed off most of the shots, even though several landed cleanly. Yes, he stepped up and beat Silva on short-notice past year, but it did little to raise his stock in the eyes of fans.

"So I think I'll have to wait until Sydney to find a fighter that's available".

"The thing about Gustafsson was he came out of nowhere and was like, 'Jon Jones is a bad person and a awful human being and I don't respect him" and all this stuff.

It won't be Saturday, though.

The UFC has released the sixth and final video of their "Embedded" series for UFC 214. Jones followed Cormier to the ground and finished the fight with a series of left hands to win back the title he never lost inside the Octagon.
