Daniel Cormier Highlights | Daniel Cormier Vs Jon Jones
Jones has two wins over Cormier, one of those victories is official, the other was overturned to a no contest after Jones failed a drug test related to that bout.
Jones defeated Cormier by unanimous decision at UFC 185. Jones was the UFC light heavyweight champion at that time. He then knocked Cormier out at UFC 214. The win gave Jones the 205-pound title, but the result of that KO was later ruled a no contest when Jones tested positive for the steroid turinabol. The UFC also returned the light heavyweight title to Cormier due to Jones’ failed drug test.
Jones regained that belt in December 2018 when he knocked out Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232. Cormier, who also holds the UFC heavyweight title, abdicated his light heavyweight throne before that fight took place.
With Cormier’s career possibly reaching its end, it’s likely that if a trilogy fight is going to happen that it will be a heavyweight bout. With that in mind, Jones recently reiterated his demands for that potential matchup.
