The rivalry concluded in spectacular fashion

He’s back.

This was one of the most anticipated fights in UFC history.

There’s a lot of bad blood between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, the pair have made a highlight reel for the ages with how much they truly dislike each other.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, the two entered the octagon to settle their differences and it was exhilarating.

Many had the scores tied a 19-19 after two rounds with Cormier, in particular, receiving kudos for being patient in picking out his strikes but in the third round, Jon Jones settled any debate as to who is the better of the two fighters.

A sick kick to the head virtually ended the fight as a contest as Jones mercilessly finished Cormier to regain his title that he was stripped of back in April 2015.

This is the second time that Jones has now beaten his arch rival in the octagon.
