Why Bet On Daniel Cormier (+235) At UFC 200
Daniel Cormier will take his time in the rematch. Cormier has a non-stop motor. His aggressive style worked to perfection until running into Jon Jones at UFC 182. Although Cormier prevented Jones from knocking him out or forcing him to submit, Cormier got tired way too early in the fight. By the third round, he was gassed. If Cormier is more patient in this fight, he could turn the tables on Jon Jones.

UFC 200 Expert Pick & Fight Prediction
Although Jon Jones is a legend, he faces an extremely capable and hungry fighter in Daniel Cormier on July 9. Cormier looked great in the first 2 rounds versus Jones at UFC 182. Then, things got dicey.
Cormier has been waiting a long time for this moment. All he needs to do is stay out of trouble and pick his shots. If he’s able to do that, he could upset Jones who didn’t look to be in his best form versus Ovince St. Preaux at UFC 197 this past April.
It’s hard to knock Jon Jones. But Cormier just seems to have the mental edge even though he lost the last fight. I like Cormier to upset Bone Jones at UFC 200.
