Jon Jones Makes His Prediction For Daniel Cormier vs. Brock Lesnar
By FCF Staff
Although Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones are bitter rivals, the latter recently outlined why he believes “DC” will defeat Brock Lesnar.
Cormier is expected to face Lesnar sometime in early 2019, after winning the heavyweight crown at UFC 226 in July, by knocking out Stipe Miocic. Recently Jones spoke with a Russian news outlet, and when asked for his call on Cormier – Lesnar, “Bones” said this (quote via MMA Junkie):
“I’m definitely very excited to see Cormier fight Brock Lesnar,” Jones said. “I think Daniel Cormier wins the fight. He’s just too fast. I feel like when I fought him he was quicker than me with certain combinations. I can only imagine he’s going to be a lot quicker than Brock Lesnar.”
Jones, meanwhile, is currently sidelined due to a USADA flag he was notified of last summer, following his rematch with Cormier at UFC 214.
