UFC 200: Can Daniel Cormier ever beat Jon Jones? (Heavy Hands #113)

Connor Ruebusch and Patrick Wyman break down Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier II, and the other fantastic fights scheduled for UFC 200.

It is nearly upon us, and we have saved the best for last. On the final episode of our UFC Fight Week extravaganza, Heavy Hands is covering all of the best fights from UFC 200. Get hyped.

First up, of course, is the much-anticipated rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. Connor thinks Cormier will do better this time around and sees a path to victory for the former Strikeforce champ. Patrick thinks Connor is crazy, but not as crazy as Jon Jones. Both hosts agree with that last part, actually. We delve into the nitty-gritty of this matchup, explore the gameplan that Cormier would need to upset Jones, and talk about the mental pressure of facing someone like "Bones," even without the torrent of trash talk that preceded the first fight.

Miesha Tate vs Amanda Nunes is up next, and then the bantamweight battle between former champion TJ Dillashaw and errant rival Raphael Assuncao. We break down Hendricks vs Gastelum and Mousasi vs Santos to round out the show. Boy, are we exhausted.

These are just a few of the fantastic fights we're covering as part of this wonderful week of combat action. Check out the rest of our schedule below.
