UFC 214 Results: Jon Jones Crushes Daniel Cormier in 3rd Round

That's because Jones never lost the belt in the Octagon.

"Brock Lesnar. If you want to know what it feels like to get your a** kicked by somebody who weighs 40lbs less than you, meet me in the octagon!" he declared. Until the lead up to this main event fight at UFC 214 that is where he showed a new side of himself.

"I want to thank Daniel for being my biggest rival and my biggest motivator", Jones said. "I feel like Brock has a pretty limited game, and I just think it's a winnable fight and there's just so much reward that's involved".

It's perhaps not surprising that we're entertaining the idea of this possible super-fight.

Now 2-0 against Cormier, Jones has won 14 straight bouts dating back to 2009, and concluded the evening by calling out former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. Jones was loose with kicks early. And I aspire to be a lot more like that man because he's an awesome human being. "What can you say at all about this and the rivalry between you and Jon (Jones)?". But with Ronda Rousey fresh off two defeats and an uncertain future, Conor McGregor moonlighting in boxing while nearing a year of inactivity and Georges St-Pierre's comeback pushed off until at least November because of injury, UFC needs Jones star badly at the moment.

But on the perimeter Jones always looked deadly, his 12 inch reach advantage nearly comical as he persistently kept Cormier at distance with his hands outstretched, akin to holding a child at bay with a hand on their forehead. Whosoever won that fight would either fight for No 1 contender or fight for the title based on how the outcome came against the victor of the Main Card - Cormier and Jones. Fan favorite Cris Cyborg did not disappoint in her third-round TKO victory against Tonya Evinger and earned a disclosed $500,000 for her victory. "Even the haters, all the things your said, I love you too because you motivated me".

She secured the UFC featherweight belt that was stripped from Germaine de Randamie in May and doesn't plan to relinquish it any time soon.

Meanwhile, Robbie Lawler beat Donald Cerrone via unanimous decision and Volkan Oezdemir needed just 22 seconds to knock out Jimi Manuwa. But the UFC didn't add a 145-pound weight class until past year, and a failed doping test was another obstacle in her meandering path to get into the world's biggest promotion.
