Jones Vs Gustafsson II
Jones vs Gustafsson headlined UFC’s final offering in 2018, competing for the light heavyweight title vacated by two-division champion Daniel Cormier. The matchup’s 2013 showdown
After his last win against Daniel Cormier in July 2017 turned out to a no contest for failing a drug test, Jones slays his comeback as planned. He destroyed his Swedish opponent via a third-round technical knockout to reclaim the light heavyweight belt.
Fans on Twitter couldn’t help but hail one of UFC’s greatest fighters after the impressive win at The Forum Arena in Inglewood. Regardless of testing positive of performance-enhancing drugs, many say he’s the real GOAT.
Here's the thing about Jon Jones you just have to accept: even if you think he's a cheat, there's *overwhelming' evidence of high-level decision making fight IQ that can't be aided by drugs. It's so good to the point that his peers aren't close in this regard.

Jones Vs DC III
After stopping Gustafsson at the third round of their second match, the mixed martial arts fandom couldn’t help but mention the biggest name on Jones’ rival list: Daniel Cormier. DC lost to the 31-year-old champ twice but managed to claim the title after his opponent’s failed drug tests.
The 39-year-old champ-champ impressively seized the heavyweight title from Stipe Miocic in July to be the second fighter to simultaneously hold two UFC golds. There are some people who do not pay credit to DC’s double titles, and one of them is Jones.
I don't think it'll ever happen, but goddamnit I want to see Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier 3 at heavyweight so, so bad. #UFC232

Jon Jones is a clock. The hour hand kicks ass in the Octagon while the minute hand fills time thinking of ways to fuck up. For every great moment, 59 failures await us. And I'll buy his shit on the hour every damn time. #UFC232 pic.twitter.com/wegAClYdov
