Ariel Helwani is reporting for MMA Fighting that Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones 2 targeted for UFC 214 on July 29, 2017 at Honda Center in Anaheim, California. A fight between Cormier and Jimi Manuwa was considered, but ultimately rejected in favor of what is sure to be a far more lucrative fight.

This will be the fifth time the UFC attempted to make the fight. Jones withdrew from the first scheduled fight in 2014, due to a knee injury. In 2015 the pair fought, with Jones successfully defending his belt. In 2016 it was Cormier who withdrew with a leg injury. And there was the fiasco at UFC 200.

I guarantee DC pulls out of this with some kind of injury

That's why they're the co-main

I doubt this fight happens. Too many disappointments and far too many factors.

I'm sure the UFC did tell Manuwa to stay ready just in case!! DC's injuries and Jones' fuck ups.
