For the primary time in almost a decade, the mild heavyweight department is ready to have a champion now no longer named Jon Jones or Daniel Cormier. With the former’s choice to transport as much as the heavyweight ranks and the latter’s retirement, the 205-pound panorama has in no way been greater unpredictable. Granted, Jones’ remaining name defenses towards Thiago Santos and Dominick Reyes hinted on the evolution withinside the department’s new blood.
