Jon Jones TKOs Daniel Cormier in Third Round

Brock Lesnar

"I made it back", Jones told the UFC after the fight. He finally regained the belt after being formally stripped of the title in 2015 after his part in a hit-and-run accident. "Brock Lesnar, if you want to get your a** beat by a man who is 40 pounds lighter than you, meet me in the Octagon".

The stage was set for the main event of UFC 214.

"I want to take this time to thank "DC" for being my greatest rival and motivator", Jones said.

Brock Lesnar's return to the octagon continues to look more and more likely, as the former UFC heavyweight champion has issued yet another response to a Jon Jones taunt.

Cormier reigned atop the division for most of Jones' absence, but he realized his glittering title belt was affixed with an enormous asterisk. Obviously, there are many factors that will have to be overcome before a Jones-Lesnar showdown can be cemented.

That fact has not been lost on Jon Jones, no doubt, who addressed the callout after the fight on Saturday.

Jones won a decision over Ovince St Preux in UFC 197 in April past year for the interim title.

Chelsea boss Conte: I lose three kilograms during a game
Juventus value him at around £60 million, which would be too much to pay for a player who primarily operates as a full-back. Turkish Super League giants Besiktas have tabled an offer for Chelsea's controversial striker Diego Costa .

In contrast to the combative nature of their public dialogue over the past three years, Jones praised Cormier afterward.

Backstage after UFC 214, Jones went into more detail about why he was interested in fighting a veritable man-mountain like Lesnar. Last time he fought he was granted a testing exemption, which resulted in two failed drug tests, a suspension and a civil lawsuit filed by his opponent.

The crowd let the counter-striker have it after he cautiously worked his way to a unanimous-decision five-round victory over top-ranked Demian Maia.

Joe Rogan: "I don't think it is a good idea to interview fighters after they have been knocked out, but I really wanted to give you a chance to express yourself".

In the third championship bout Cristiane Justino faced off Tony Evinger. Evinger couldn't do anything to get her offense going, and in the third round Cyborg connected with a massive knee to the chin, which dropped her to the canvas.

"I came out fast in the first round because I thought if I got on top of him, I could stop him", Lawler said. As well Jimi Manuwa defeated Volkan Oezdemir by KO with punches in the first round.
