On July 29, 2017, the Ultimate Fighting Championship will present UFC 214. UFC is the leading MMA promoting organization in this planet. Every month they arrange exciting events with the cherry picked fighters from everywhere. UFC has the most number of most renowned MMA artists signed with them. Last few seasons were not very exciting for the MMA fans. However, this month the story is different.
UFC has decided to roll on the rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones. Cormier is the current light heavyweight champion, and he will defend his title. The last time he met Jones (UFC 182) did not end up well for Cormier. It was the only single loss of his MMA career (19-1). Although, the next four consecutive bouts went very satisfying for him. He beat Anthony Johnson twice at UFC 187 and UFC 210. Moreover, Alexander Gustafsson and Anderson Silva also lost to him at UFC 192 and UFC 200 respectively. On the Jones side, he has been laying off for a while now. He won the bout against Ovince Saint Preux at UFC 197, and that is his last fight until date. The session is headlined Sport’s Best Rivalry for a reason. We will be finding it out on the day.
The current UFC welterweight champion Tyrion Woodley (17-3-1) will go head-to-head against Demian Maia (25-6) at the co-main event. Woodley had ups-and-downs of his career, but he is the welterweight champion since July 2016. He gained the title at UFC 201 against Robbie Lawler. Moreover, he successfully defended the title twice against Stephen Thompson (UFC 205, UFC 209). Maia is in an excellent form and performed very well in the last seven bouts. He is #1 in the UFC’s official welterweight rankings.
Rest of the fight card is as much amazing. It is UFC’s promise to present you an exciting sports night.
