In the main event Jon Jones picked up a unanimous decision win over Ovince Saint Preux to claim the interim UFC light heavyweight championship.
With tonight’s win, Jones will now fight Daniel Cormier for the undisputed UFC light heavyweight championship in a highly anticipated rematch. The rematch could very well take place at UFC 200 depending on how quick Cormier’s leg heals.
Following the win, which Jones was very critical of, the pound for pound kingpin spoke at the post-fight press conference to discuss how he feels a rematch would go.
Jones: I feel like I'm ready to pick DC apart. I feel like I'm going to beat him up really bad. This change in opponent really messed w/ me

Jones explained that he was hesitant to take chances in his fight with OSP because he didn’t want to get tagged and miss out on a rematch with Daniel Cormier.
After seeing Jones’ performance against OSP on 3 weeks notice, how do you see a rematch with Daniel Cormier going?
