Jones has defended the 205 crown a record seven times now, and has defeated many former champs and stars in the process. While Cormier’s resume may not match it just yet, we are talking about a dude who has defeated top heavyweights in Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson.
In addition, Cormier cruised through the legendary Dan Henderson this past may, the footage of which, you can catch below. “Hendo’s’ powers may not be what they once were, but there’s no denying that he remains ridiculously dangerous. Just ask “Shogun” Rua.
Jones-Cormier will headline UFC 182, which will take place on January 3rd in Las Vegas, Nevada.
