    Jones’ return was successful, as the former champ not only regained his 205-pound title, but also became the first man to stop Cormier in an MMA contest.


    Yet, despite putting away the ultra-tough Cormier in the third round of his return fight, Oezdemir wasn’t fully impressed with what he saw from Jones that night in the Honda Center.

    “That was Jon Jones, that was his style, he was doing his stuff, but I didn’t see any new weapons,” Oezdemir said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “Of course, he probably didn’t get to display everything and yeah the fight was dominant, but DC had some good moments too. So you know, I wasn’t that impressed.”


    There were many questions entering the UFC 214 main event and many were centered around how Jones was going to look upon return, as some believe Jones didn’t fight like himself on his first return to the Octagon back in April, 2016 against Ovince Saint Preux.

    Although Oezdemir admits it was a good fight, the Swiss fighter, who’s ranked third in the division, wasn’t impressed with Jones’ performance because he didn’t see any new tools or anything different from his part.

    “The fight was great, of course, but I was waiting to see Jon Jones fight different,” Oezdemir explained. “D.C. is also one of the best pound-for-pound fighters ever, so it was also a fight between two of the best guys, so that’s why I guess.”

    “I think it’s very different power, D.C.’s stance is not made for striking,” Oezdemir said. “The way he stands, he’s not going to be able to generate a lot of power in his striking, so this would’ve been different. I have another style, I offer another style for Jon Jones, so when my punch lands, it’s going to be different.”

    I want Jones and his management to be smarter. Ignore this. Let the fights that come, come. No more letting fighters use the Sonnen method.

    LOL everyone expects fights to look the way THEY want it to look,

    Jones had a simple kick and made use of it, simplicity is often the best weapon.

    If Jones stays at LHW, I hope Volkan knocks him out.

    He needs more fights. Does not have the name for this fight yet. He also is not far removed from a SD over OSP..

    Volkan's punch won't land, because he's going to be pounded to Bolivion

    as great as he is its such a steep drop off from the top to where he stands. Lots of people think that gus rumble dc and jones beat most if not everyone at 205 in history. its a tall order and I am super excited to see if he cant get in that mix.

    @Jonathonwick

    Nah, that shit is over imo. Jones left no doubt (personally, I'm neutral on both fighters). I want to see Jon move onto new fights. He's finally into going up to HW, let's encourage that. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'd watch it...but picture in that scenario DC beats Jones...there would have to be an immediate rematch, Jon would have earned that right (might be in his contract anyways). No thanks.
