ufc 200

As long as everything goes as planned over the next week or so, Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones will get their rematch.

And they will do so at UFC 200 on July 9.

Officials announced the rumored main event for the Las Vegas card during a special appearance on “Good Morning America” Wednesday morning. Jones and Cormier will meet to unify the light heavyweight titles after “Bones” earned the interim belt this past weekend.

Jones and Cormier were joined by UFC president Dana White, UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell, Frankie Edgar, UFC female bantamweight champion Miesha Tate and Paige VanZant on the set of the ABC morning show.

Jones bested Cormier last year to retain his title, but was stripped after a legal run-in. Cormier won the vacant belt with a submission win over Anthony Johnson and defended it vs. top challenger Alexander Gustafsson to close out 2015.

The two were set for UFC 197 before an injury knocked Cormier out. He was replaced by Ovince Saint Preux, who lost a decision to Jones.

Jon Jones packed on more muscle during his extended stay away from the Octagon.

While it helped him control Ovince Saint Preux this past weekend at UFC 197, he was never able to put the underdog away, settling instead for a convincing decision win and claiming the interim light heavyweight title.

“I was getting booed,” Jones said on the FOX Sports 1 post-fight show. “I’ve never been booed in my career.

“I’m my biggest critic. I had an expectation to beat him, and I didn’t really get to do that.”

Jones, though, was never in danger against Saint Preux. He took him down when he wanted to and kept him at bay with his length. There were some difficulties adjusting on the fly to OSP.

“He went orthodox a lot more that we prepared,” he said. “I switched up for a southpaw, and then I wasn’t expecting him to stay orthodox and I wasn’t moving the way I was supposed to counter it.”

Jones was scheduled to meet Daniel Cormier before an injury sidelined the current UFC champion. The two are on track to meet this July if both are healthy and cleared to go.
