Four Reasons Jon Jones Will Lose The Belt At UFC 182

Jon Jones And Daniel Cormier Vow To Target Each Other's Injuries

2.) Desire:

Cormier appears focused on nothing other than obtaining the UFC belt right now; the same may not be able to be said about “Bones” at this point.

He’s faced and beaten some of the legends of the sport during his illustrious reign, and it’s only natural that some of the drive and hunger he maintained as an up-and-coming fighter has subsided.

That’s not to say that Jones has lost all motivation to fight and win, because he’s dominated all comers, and usually at their strong suit, throughout his record-setting string of title defenses.

However, it just doesn’t seem like he has that advantage of being the hunter rather than the hunted, and this time, he’s facing an opponent that will absolutely not be intimidated by Jones’ mystique before he steps into the cage.

Cormier has never even been seriously damaged in an MMA fight, let alone put in danger of actually losing. He’s been competing at the highest levels for many years, and he truly believes that now is his time.

It’s going to take a special effort from Jones to stop Cormier at UFC 182.

  1. You make this a very intriguing idea that jbj may loose. I will be neutral dc has thd best wrestling,control,and power in the lhw division for sure, i see dc beating evans, rampage, glover, and vitor, becsuse he is so damn powerful. Im not saying that dc has knockout power. Im saying dc has allot of strength. Dc has the ability to negate jbj reach indefinitely, get inside, and dump jbj on his head. Jbj has imo the best MMA transitional game today, nonody is able to create true modern MMA tactical art likd jbj does. I don’t believe jbj reach will be a factor in his fight against dc, but it can be jbj uses super fast, hard, and snappy high kicks, front kicks. Jones has the chance to show his improving hand techniques as it wouldnt serve him well to kick with dc this will for sure be the most exciting lhw fight of the last couple years.

  2. I haven’t seen Jon go at a competitor like ever. Don’t count him out because. His height and reach advantage is an enormous advantage and makes up for everything mentioned here.

  3. No way can this “authority” on the sport…as he bills himself, can show face here.
    Or he must be just waiting things out. I’m going to be enjoying seeing all these JBJ haters choke on their words.
    FTR..Jon proved himself to be a real douche at the press conference. I know longer like his personality but fighting has nothing to do with that.

  4. You might of been watching the wrong fight. Jones won by a unanimous decision which means he ” BEAT ” Cormier. He took down Cormier who had never been taken off of his feat during a fight. Sorry, your guy lost, but wait, no i am not sorry. Cormier thought he was the best thing going, but Jones proved him very wrong . LOL !
