On Saturday, July 29, the UFC will host UFC 214: Cormier vs Jones 2 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The event will be headlined by a light heavyweight title clash between current champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones.
The pair met previously at UFC 182, with Jones handing Cormier his only professional loss after five, hard-fought rounds. Jones was later stripped of the belt after multiple run-ins with the law and two positive drug tests. Cormier captured the vacant belt at UFC 187 and has gone on to defend it twice since.
