As we get closer and closer to Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier II on April 23rd, where Jon Jones will look to reclaim the UFC light heavyweight championship belt he never lost inside the Octagon, Daniel Cormier has a concern regarding Herb Dean being the referee for the bout.

Back at UFC 182, the pair had their first meeting where Jones dominated Cormier from the first bell to the last. Despite that, Cormier believes that there were several times where referee Herb Dean allowed Jones to clinch Cormier for an extended period of time, something DC appears worried about going into their UFC 197 scrap on April 23rd.

“We should have been broken up a couple of times.”

According to Fox Sports, the Nevada commissioners listened to Cormier’s case, however in the end they ultimately left Dean as the referee for the event.

How do you see this rematch going on April 23rd?
