Daniel Cormier vs Jon Jones
Daniel Cormier (+210) has a legitimate claim to being the best technical wrestler to ever grace the Octagon. The former Olympian is about controlling his competitor and grinding out victories in the most barbarous way possible. “DC” is a chain-wrestling expert who works his finest when he puts his opponent on the cage and may just chip off. From the clinch, he could either work his strikes or utilize a large number of takedowns to get on top of his competitor. And if Cormier is at the top, he clamps down on his opponent quickly, fluidly alterations and absolutely suffocates them.
The striking game is still quite meat-and-potatoes for Cormier, but it’s effective. He moves forward behind his jab and leg kicks, which he uses very well to battle larger than his small-for-the-division frame. He does not precisely sport amazing knockout ability in his hands but his developing striking game is built to feed to his grappling.
Jon Jones (-270) is excellent at every aspect of the battle game, but his greatest physical feature comes thanks for his freakishly long reach. His long arms give him the capability to chip off during the bout while occasionally moving into hit crushing shots in near, usually with his elbows. This leads to some other field of dominance from the former champ; the clinch. His span is an unbelievable asset in tight and Jones has developed the technical capability to leverage that into devastating strikes.
One of the most intriguing aspects for Jones has ever been his flexibility. Throughout his career, we have seen him challenge his competitors with their strengths and end up victorious. This, of course, was most notable when he outwrestled and outgrinded Cormier in their very first meeting.
As long as we get the Jon Jones of old, he should easily win this fight. In his prime, nobody could touch Jones and he was probably the best fighter to ever step inside a cage. If he seems anywhere as mediocre as he failed in his last fight against Ovince Saint Preux, Cormier will eat him alive. Until someone beats”Bones,” you can’t select against him.
