I see DC pressing Jones against the cage and beating him up there. Though, Jones is good at running away so I wonder if DC will be able to get him against the cage?

Either way this fight goes, I am extremely excited to watch it.

You are right though about one thing, Bones is going to have to prove again why he is the best LHW in history.
I'm curious to see how DC deals with the multiple eye-pokes he will undoubtedly receive throughout the fight.

Also, I wonder if Jones will kick Cormier to the body?

Yeah, all jones does is run away.

Jones has been a dominant clinch fighter through his career.

I see it going like Texeria vs Jones. Jones does good damage early with striking(elbows, kicks) Gets hit but doesn't get taken down until possibly late in the fight

I never wrote that Jones only runs away. I wrote that he is good at running away which means Cormier might have a difficult time getting Jones against the fence.

The Heavyweight Title is the most prestigious title because unlike any other title, the Heavyweight Title signifies that not only can the man who holds the title beat anybody else in his weight class but he can also beat any fighter in any other weight class as well. It doesn't just signify that the HW champion can beat anybody his size; it signifies that he can beat any fighter in the entire promotion.
