UFC 241 is a wrap! It featured a rematch of ages as former double champ and heavyweight champion Daniel ‘DC’ Cormier took on former champ Stipe Miocic.
Result was different this time around as Miocic floored Cormier to win the fight via TKO in the fourth round. Cormier was dominating the fight until Miocic came up with a brilliant game plan to attack Cormier’s body which was instrumental in the finish.
That being said, is it even a Daniel Cormier fight, without a statement from arch rival and light heavyweight champion Jon Jones? Exactly what happened as Jones celebrated him being reinstated as the #1 P4P fighter in the official UFC rankings. The tweet might as well be an insult to Cormier’s injury, however Jones didn’t really said something negative about Cormier. (via Twitter):
BREAKING NEWS!!! New P4P rankings are out!!! 1. Daddy 2. Khabib 3. Cejudo 4. Nunes 5. DC. Agree?

Jones successfully defended his title in his last fight at UFC 239 back in June. Even though his performance was relatively inferior compared to his last fights, Jones finds himself in the #1 position.
