On July 9th at UFC 200, fight fans will finally see the long awaited rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier for the UFC light heavyweight championship.
This time however, Jones, who currently holds the UFC interim light heavyweight championship, will be coming into the fight as the challenger, while Cormier comes into the fight as the champion. Despite that, Jones has still opened as the favorite in betting lines ahead of the fight.
Jones made a bold prediction ahead of the rematch, which was transcribed by Fox Sports:
“I believe I’m going to annihilate DC,” Jones said. “So far, it’s all I’ve ever done to every opponent. Alexander Gustafsson’s the only person who had a competitive fight with me.”
“Expect to see a hell of a lot more out of me this next fight. I have a strong strategy for DC.”
“I listened to him commentate my fight and I got to hear all the things he thinks he knows about me,” Jones said. “You guys will see.”
