More than a year after their last fight was cancelled, light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier will finally met Jon Jones at UFC 214 in Anaheim on July 29.
The new bout was announced as part of the UFC’s Summer Kickoff press conference on Friday.
The two longtime rivals were last scheduled to meet at UFC 200 last July, but Jones was pulled off the card after he was flagged for a doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition drug test.
Cormier stayed on the card where he defeated former middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Jones ultimately faced a one-year suspension as a result of his UFC anti-doping policy infraction but he returns to eligibility in July.
