Watch Countdown to UFC 187: Anthony Johnson vs. Daniel Cormier

Daniel Cormier

Things change in MMA, and can change in a hurry. Case in point, on January 1st, no one on the planet was predicting that Daniel Cormier would be facing Anthony Johnson for the UFC’s light-heavyweight belt, May 23rd.

Back then, Cormier was scheduled to fight the sport’s greatest, pound-for-pound fighter in Jon Jones, and Johnson was booked to face Alexander Gustafsson. Really, at the time, the vast majority of folks were talking about how Jones-Gustafsson II would go down…

Well, following Johnson’s jaw dropping win over “The Mauler”, and Jones’ arrest, here we are. Cormier has another shot at locking up the title, as he’ll battle Johnson for the vacant belt…

In advance of the promising, and yet surprising bout, the UFC has released a “Countdown” segment which you can watch below.

UFC 187 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
