The main event features Jon Jones (20-1) facing Daniel Cormier (15-0) for the light heavyweight title, which Jones holds. Jones is considered the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world and he is seeking his eighth successful title defense. Cormier is unbeaten and competing in his third fight at 205 pounds. He is a former Strikeforce heavyweight champion.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Jones is favored to retain his title, as he is getting odds of -170 to prevail, while Cormier has a money line of +140 to win. This bout will take place on Saturday night from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and air on PPV at 10PM ET.

This fight should be a war as Jones has the striking and length, while Cormier has the power and wrestling. Cormier shouldn’t have any trouble getting Jones to the ground, as long as he can get his hands on him. Jones knows how to keep his opponents at bay and also has some grappling ability, but probably not the Olympic-level that Cormier has. If the fight is standing most of the way, look for Jones to win. If the fight is mostly on the ground, Cormier has to have the edge.
