Daniel Cormier is a UFC Champion. But He Must Beat Jon Jones to Feel Like One.

By Greg Howard, New York Times

Everything about Cormier — the way he carries himself, the way athletes at the highest levels of their sports regard him, the success he has had — says that he is a winner. But he is not the best, not without defeating Jones.
