'Anytime, anywhere': Brock Lesnar calls Jon Jones's bluff about fighting him

It's a nice thought, but he's wrong. But the fight was much more competitive than the scorecards suggested and Cormier pushed Jones to new limits.

The light-heavyweights fight for the second time, Jones having won their UFC 182 battle by unanimous decision in January of 2015.

With only three days to go, Manuwa insisted nothing had changed. "When I was finally able to let that go, it freed me".

When he got back on top Saturday night by stopping his greatest rival in dramatic style, Jones vowed to appreciate everything he had lost and regained. Especially if it's Cormier who withdraws.

Jones also revealed that, during their latest standoff at the official press conference, he looked down at Cormier and called him a "little s-". I want the best for him, I really do.

If you don't follow football, then you might now know that Jones' older brothers is Arthur Jones, who is a defensive tackle in the NFL.

"Cormier is not a striker, he's a messy stand-up fighter".

Jones had last fought in April of 2016, decisioning Ovince St.

Jones is notoriously meticulous in his preparation for opponents.

In the UK, BT have the rights to the UFC and will show the majority of the card on BT Sport 2. Cormier, a former Olympic wrestler, did not convert a single takedown, but he knocked Jones' mouthpiece out with uppercuts and found a home for the overhand right.

And he had a chilling message for the former UFC heavyweight champion, who announced his retirement from MMA back in March. Cormier accused Jones of being a junkie and a steroid user.

If Jones wins Saturday night, that rivalry will end - at least inside the octagon. "But the reality is for me, I do need to win this fight". Yes, he stepped up and beat Silva on short-notice a year ago, but it did little to raise his stock in the eyes of fans.

"I was winning fights while partying, and I just started to think like, I just started taking everything for granted and making mistakes", explained Jones. However, he has one loss on his record, and he's looking to avenge that at UFC 214 on Saturday.

Jones started very aggressively against bitter rival Daniel Cormier but his mouthpiece was soon sent flying by a lovely short uppercut. "So it's been great to take a step back and to reevaluate things and prioritize and to realize how much this sport means to me".

Promotion around UFC 214 has been nearly exclusively around the grudge match between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.

"We knew he dips his head to the left and were waiting on him to instinctually dip that way", Jones said.
