Daniel Cormier had a very competitive first two rounds against the light heavyweight champion, but Jones was able to outlast the pace and wear Cormier down. Cormier tried to bring the fight in close to neutralize his opponent’s reach advantage, but he took too many unanswered blows to get there. Jones stuck out the fight and took the decision, and the pair earned the Fight of the Night bonus. Watch the Gustafsson vs. Johnson fight closely, as the winner will likely be Jones’ next challenger.

In the co-main event of UFC 182, Donald Ceronne picked up his 6th consecutive win in overwhelming fashion against the formerly undefeated Jury. Looking like the clearly more experienced fighter, he dominated in striking and took an exciting omoplata sweep in the ground game. Despite the win, “Cowboy” was not pleased with the way the fight played out:

“I’m upset with my performance, and I’m going to go watch the tape and figure out what I need to do to capitalize if that happens again,” Cerrone stated. “I’m very upset for the performance I put in tonight, and I apologize to everyone that was watching and the hype that was behind all that.”
