  • Daniel Cormier and Anthony “Rumble” Johnson will compete for the light heavyweight title in the main event at UFC 210 on Saturday night, but a huge shadow will hang over the event with former champion Jon Jones sitting just a few feet away from the Octagon.

    Jones is currently under suspension after testing positive for a banned substance last year, but he’s still arguably viewed as the best light heavyweight in the world if not the top pound-for-pound fighter in the entire sport.

    Jones already holds a win over Cormier but if the former two-time Olympian can get past Johnson in Buffalo, he’ll likely get the rematch he’s wanted after since suffering the only loss of his professional fighting career.

    As much as Cormier wants to get another shot at Jones, the same can’t be said for the former eight-time defending champion who never lost his belt but instead had it stripped from him after being arrested in 2015.

    “I really don’t feel like I have unfinished business with Cormier. I think I have unfinished business with Anthony Johnson,” Jones explained when speaking to the media in Buffalo on Friday. “We’ve had quite a few fights that fell through, but Daniel Cormier, I beat him fair and square. I’m the only guy to ever beat him.

    “So if anyone has unfinished business, I feel he has unfinished business with me.”
