Daniel Cormier vs Jon Jones
Daniel Cormier (+210) has a valid claim to being the best technical wrestler to ever grace the Octagon. The former Olympian is all about controlling his competitor and grinding out victories in the most barbarous way possible. “DC” is a chain-wrestling specialist who works his finest when he gets his opponent on the cage and can just chip away. From the clinch, he can work his strikes or utilize a multitude of takedowns to get on top of his opponent. And when Cormier is on top, he melts down on his opponent quickly, fluidly alterations and absolutely suffocates them.
The striking game is still very meat-and-potatoes for Cormier, but it is effective. He moves ahead behind his jab and leg kicks, he uses very well to fight larger than his small-for-the-division frame. He doesn’t exactly sport amazing knockout skill in his hands but his growing striking game is built to feed to his grappling.
Jon Jones (-270) is excellent at each aspect of the fight game, but his best physical attribute comes thanks to his freakishly long reach. His long arms give him the capability to chip off during the bout while periodically moving into hit devastating shots in near, typically along with his elbows. This leads to another area of dominance from the former champ; the clinch. His length is an incredible asset in tight and Jones has developed the specialized capability to leverage that to catastrophic strikes.
One of the most fascinating aspects for Jones has ever been his versatility. Throughout his career, we have seen him challenge his competitors to their strengths and end up victorious. This, clearly, was most noteworthy when he outwrestled and outgrinded Cormier in their first meeting.
So long as we get the Jon Jones of older, he should easily win this fight. In his prime, nobody could touch Jones and he was probably the best fighter to ever step inside a cage. If he looks anywhere as mediocre as he did in his final fight against Ovince Saint Preux, Cormier will eat him alive. Until somebody beats”Bones,” you can’t select against him.
