UFC 214 in Tweets: Pros react to Jon Jones knocking out Daniel Cormier, more

The rivalry between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier is over.

In a rematch nearly three years in the making, Jones defeated Cormier via vicious knockout at UFC 214, reclaiming his place atop the light heavyweight division he once reigned over as king. A third-round head kick spelled the beginning of the end for Cormier, as Jones became the first man to ever finish the former Olympian.

Check out reaction to Jones’ masterful return below, plus the best of the rest from a stacked night at UFC 214.

@JonnyBones is my idol #ufc214

— Louis Smolka (@LASTSAMURAIUFC) July 30, 2017

The perfect end to a great #UFC214 – Rough to see DC in such a rough spot, but Jones is king of MMA. He would embarrass Lesnar.

— Dan Hardy (@danhardymma) July 30, 2017

Feeling so sad for Cormier! Was starting to feel he could take it home after amazing display of skills in the first 3 rounds. #UFC214

— Nicolas Dalby (@DalbyMMA) July 30, 2017

DC was ahead on the fight but Jones is so unpredictable #ufc214 What fight!!

— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) July 30, 2017

Jon Jones is back. Hate it or love it, we are witnessing greatness

— Ian McCall (@Unclecreepymma) July 30, 2017

Jones is a real dude. I picked D.C. and put money on him. Respect.

— Matt Brown (@IamTheImmortal) July 30, 2017

Big respect for @dc_mma

— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) July 30, 2017

Sucks to see D.C. Like this. Jon Jones acted like a true champ on that mic.

— Chris Weidman (@ChrisWeidmanUFC) July 30, 2017

Man fuck that @dc_mma hold yo head up. You fought hard and got caught. The shit happens. Be a champ with or without the belt #ufc214

— Kevin MTP Lee (@MoTownPhenom) July 30, 2017

Come on @joerogan don’t interview him right after he just got koed and is so emotional #UFC214

— Katlyn Chookagian (@blondefighter) July 30, 2017

I just can’t with D.C. right now. He wears his heart on his sleeve. Poor guy. #ufc214

— Tatiana Suarez (@TSPMMA115) July 30, 2017

@JonnyBones congrats Champ. Stop asking for retired fighters, I’ve been waiting to put my hands on you and so have all the fans.

TYRON WOODLEY DEF. DEMIAN MAIA

A lot of ignorant fans fail to realize @TWooodley just did is more difficult than knocking him out in 30 seconds.Flawless victory #ufc214

— AlexSpartanNicholson (@spartanlife32) July 30, 2017

That fight was boring, but Woodley did what he had to do. You just can’t go to the ground w Maia! He never stopped shooting!

— Chas Skelly (@ChasSkelly) July 30, 2017

There has to be a second and third transition when you miss a shot . Dang. Poor Maia! #ufc214

— Tatiana Suarez (@TSPMMA115) July 30, 2017

Woodley is a beast, but he can stop complaining about not being marketed and paid. Sprawl and brawl one time at least! #ufc214

— Sean O’Connell (@realOCsports) July 30, 2017
