Which is why I am rooting for Jon Jones to win this fight.
It has been reported that Daniel Cormier has a torn LCL and partially damaged ACL in his right knee. Provided he doesn't damage it further in training camp, and then manages to defeat Jon Jones for the LHW title, then what? Cormier is 35 years old. His window to compete at a high level is closing. Win or lose the fight with Jones that knee is going to be mush. So now Cormier has the belt, a busted knee, and a potential 12-18 months of post surgery rehab ahead of him. Which means the LHW belt doesn't get defended for at least 1-2 years. At which point Daniel Cormier will be 36-37 years old. Well isn't that an exciting prospect.
as long as Jon The Eye Poker Jones loses, i'm ok with it.
