Through much fanfare and pomp, the UFC announced today that the card for UFC 200 would feature Jon Jones fighting Daniel Cormier as its main event. It is a good, decent fight for sure, but it’s not anywhere near the epic-ness of the original headliner – which was a rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz before McGregor flaked out on his promotional duties.
And the Irishman agrees. As per his Twitter account:

It’s hard to argue against the fact that Jones vs. Cormier II lacks a certain je ne sais quoi that McGregor vs. Diaz II has. But c’est la vie, non?
UPDATE: Whoops. Turns out that’s not Conor McGregor’s Twitter, but a fan account instead. I’m going to leave it up there though. It’s still pretty funny.
