Daniel Cormier has remarked in the past just how talented he believes UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones to be.
While serving as guest host of UFC Tonight Tuesday evening, Cormier made a bold statement in regards to this coming Saturday’s Jones vs. Chael Sonnen title fight, saying that a Sonnen win would be “the biggest upset in UFC history without question.”
Kenny Florian, the normal co-host of the show alongside Sonnen, agreed.
Sonnen will be making his return to 205 pounds after twice competing for the UFC middleweight title. He was defeated both times by Anderson Silva.
FightLine will have complete coverage of Saturday’s UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen event, including pre- and post-fight reports.
