Jon Jones defeats Daniel Cormier with stunning head kick at UFC 214

Jon Jones defeats Daniel Cormier with stunning head kick at UFC 214

The former longtime UFC light heavyweight champion, whose career was almost derailed with a string of legal incidents, is once again champion after defeating Daniel Cormier (19-2) of San Jose, Calif., in the main event of UFC 214 on Saturday night at the Honda Center.

But despite the pair being involved in a heated war of words between their two fights, Jones paid tribute to Cormier afterwards. Here is the results for a Twitter search of the video of the TKO.

As appealing as this Jones vs. fight Lesnar would be, there are a number of notable stumbling blocks that first need to be navigated. He beat Cormier by clear decision in their first bout in January 2015, but had fought just one time since.

Cormier reigned atop the division for most of Jones' absence, but he realized his glittering title belt was affixed with an enormous asterisk. "What can you say at all about this and the rivalry between you and Jon (Jones)?".

Incredibly, Jon Jones called out Brock Lesnar after dispatching of Cormier, claiming that he'd kick the WWE superstar's ass despite weighing 40 pounds less.

Lesnar responded to Jones' challenge, telling the AP, "Be careful what you wish for, young man". I think it would bring more of the general public to the sport of mixed martial arts.

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. "People were always doubting me and each fight I prove them wrong - I really like it".

The lingering doubt over Jones' return after 15 months of no action was of ring-rust, a factor which he showcased in his last fight which also came after a layoff. "But if you told me Lesnar wound up being too damn big, I'd believe that too".

Cormier's shot at redemption came in the main event of UFC 214, which saw him attempt to defend the light-heavyweight crown against his bitter rival.

Cormier was in tears after the fight and unable to explain what the loss meant.

Finally, Jones timed a perfectly placed left head kick that wobbled Cormier and forced him to stumble around the Octagon.

'Stop asking for retired fighters, I've been waiting to put my hands on you and so have all the fans'.
