Ahead of UFC 197, where Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier will have their highly anticipated rematch for the UFC light heavyweight title, take a look back at Cormier’s first title defense against Alexander Gustafsson.

The fight was an extremely close one that ultimately saw the judges give Cormier the win via split decision. With that being said, many believe that Gustafsson won the fight, similar to when Gustafsson lost to Jon Jones via split decision.

While Cormier vs. Jones II is a fight that many MMA fans want to see, many also want to see Jones vs. Gustafsson II. With that being said, if Daniel Cormier defeats Jon Jones at UFC 197, do you think we could see Cormier vs. Gustafsson II after Gustafsson picks up another win?
