UFC 214 Daniel Cormier vs Jon Jones 2
UFC 214 Daniel Cormier vs Jon Jones 2

 

UFC 214 Live was a compelling matchup and a drama-filled fight the first time around. Two and a half years later, it may be even more interesting because there are more questions and more on the line. Is “DC” two years better, or just two years older? Is Jones the same fighter he was in 2015, with only a dominant, yet ho-hum, win over Ovince Saint Preux last year to judge him by? Oh yeah, and they don’t like each other. If you’re a fan of combat sports, this is one of those fights where you will get butterflies in your stomach before the Octagon door shuts, and that’s a good thing because you know something special is coming

Much has been made about the rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, largely because of their scuffles outside of the Octagon. Jones defeated Cormier by unanimous decision at UFC 182, and their last two scheduled fights have been canceled. The first cancelation was due to an injury from Cormier, whereas the second was because Jones tested positive for doping midweek and was pulled from the bout three days before UFC 214 Live last summer.
Things have been hotly contested between the two ever since, with Jones telling Cormier he would "make him cry" again. Jones is currently a large favorite to go 2-0 against the current light heavyweight champ. In the co-main events, Tyron Woodley looks to defend his welterweight belt against Demien Maia, while Cris Cyborg will be facing off against Tonya Evinger in a featherweight title bout. You can see the fight card below with the latest odds from Bovada.A mere four months ago, London native Manuwa seemingly moved in pole position for a shot at the UFC light-heavyweight title with an emphatic first-round knockout victory over Corey Anderson.
 
In the eyes of many mixed martial arts fans, Manuwa’s impressive victory Anderson, his second stoppage win on the bounce, solidified his status as the No.1 contender for the 205lbs title, which is currently wrapped around the waist of Daniel Cormier.
 
In need of pay-per-view-selling fights, the UFC 214 Live Stream brass decided against giving Manuwa his first shot at UFC gold, opting instead to book a rematch between Cormier and his bitter rival Jon Jones - which headlines UFC 214.TYRON WOODLEY VS DEMIAN MAIA
It’s an interesting matchup at 170 pounds between champion Tyron Woodley and No. 1 contender Demian Maia, and not just because of the stylistic clash. Maia has been waiting a long time for this shot at the belt and, at 39, he may believe this is his last chance to get the gold. As for Woodley, if he’s looking past Maia and to a possible megafight with Georges St-Pierre, could he get caught napping by the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu wizard? There are a lot of intriguing angles to this one.
 
CRIS CYBORG VS TONYA EVINGER
Widely considered to be the best of the best in WMMA, Cris Cyborg enters Saturday’s bout with Tonya Evinger as the rightful favorite, but it would be foolish to sleep on “Triple Threat,” who is not only an elite fighter, but one who has never been stopped by strikes. Evinger has the style to give Cyborg issues if she can close the distance and make this a grappling affair, so what some believe to be a one-sided match in favor of Cyborg could end up being the most competitive of the bunch if Evinger survives the standup blitz of the Brazilian.With his Hollywood good looks, Brian Ortega delivered a dramatic performance Friday morning.
 
And it almost cost him his hair.
 
With one minute to spare, Ortega made the featherweight limit of 146 pounds at the UFC 214 weigh-ins at Sheraton Cerritos, one day before taking on Renato Moicano at UFC 145 at Honda Center.
 
With a half-pound to go, Ortega was willing to cut his long locks on the stage if it meant making weight and not forfeiting 20 percent of his purse to Moicano.
 
He stood nude behind a towel on the scale, looking famished, as he contemplated sacrificing his hair if it spared him an extra 8 ounces.
 
“I was like, you know what? (Forget) it, cut the hair,” a drained Ortega said about 30 minutes after stepping on the scale. “It went 146.5. Coach (James Luhrsen) had the knife in his hand.
“Then that thing went ‘Click!’ 146.”Ortega, who lives in Lomita, blamed the perilous situation on an inaccurate scale at home.He wouldn’t elaborate on how much weight he had to cut — “a lot!” — but said it’s the most he’s done in less than three hours.Ortega says he fought 10 five-minute rounds — the equivalent of two championship fights — and jumped into the jacuzzi for three minutes before scurrying to the weigh-ins, which were from 9 to 11 a.m.
