UFC 214 features massive card highlighted by Jones-Cormier grudge match

With Jones and Cormier making weight, their much-anticipated light heavyweight championship fight is officially set for Saturday night.

It has been quite some time since the UFC president, Dana White has spoken to Jon Jones.

A hit-and-run accident in 2015 tarnished his reputation and cost him his light heavyweight championship. He intends to beat Jon twice and then leave the division, handing Jon the belt back so he can feel what it's like being called a fake champ.

'I have no problem with Gustafsson, ' Jones said.

"To hear him have that level of faith in me and pretty much tell me that it's already done, I just need to go out there and do what I'm capable of".

Cormier needs this win more he has ever needed anything in his athletic career. "Definitely it's a stacked card from top to bottom and fans are the sure winners from this", said Mr. Miguel, who writes for DojoDrifter.com and Tiebreaker Times, when asked by BusinessWorld for his thoughts on UFC 214.

India need 229 runs to lift maiden World Cup title
Shrubsole's fifth victim, Deepti had the most ideal ball to hit anywhere she desired, a juicy a good length just outside off. England will be hoping to avenge their loss to India in the opening match of the ICC Women's World Cup last month.

His length, speed, power and unpredictable arsenal of punches, elbows and kicks lend to his confidence, especially since he feels he shut Cormier down the first time.

Of course, and once again, Jones does have to win his belt back this weekend against the super-tough Cormier for any of this to come to fruition. The greatest fighter in the history of the sport, a handful of publicized poor decisions wouldn't bring an end to the legacy of one Jon Jones. It technically turned out that way with Lesnar responding to Jones' wish.

"That's why we're going to court, because of people like this coming in and cheating", said Hunt, who recently released an updated edition of his popular biography "Born to Fight", which details the events of the Lesnar bout and his ensuing battle with the UFC. The 30-year-old from Ithaca, N.Y., returns to the Octagon for just the second time in two years, trying to use his remarkable skills inside the cage to erase his tarnished reputation outside of it. Jones came away with the victory via unanimous decision that night and finally, between the jigs and the reels of the intervening two-and-a-half years, this Saturday night in Anaheim, California, "DC" gets his shot at redemption.

He added: "I doubt Brock Lesnar would take that fight, though". Yesterday, Cormier admitted that he didn't try hard enough in the clinch to get Jones off of him, which cost him dearly. He fought as well as he possibly could against Ovince Saint Preux, so it wasn't a bad fight, he did his job. But it was all for naught as 72 hours before the fight, the UFC announced Jones had failed a drug test and pulled him from the fight. He has since fought Stephen Thompson to a thrilling draw and a tiresome majority-decision victory - the latter a snoozer at UFC 209 in March because Thompson was cautious of Woodley's counter-striking and Woodley waited for Thompson to engage.

Later, Anthony Giacchina jumps into the studio to talk about his Bellator 180 third-round submission win, how important it is to keep your perspective and cool during a fight, and describes in detail a wildly entertaining story about his weight cut before fighting at Madison Square Garden.
