Daniel Cormier – Anthony Johnson II Re-booked For UFC 210

Daniel Cormier

As expected, Daniel Cormier’s next title defense will indeed take place against Anthony Johnson, as the UFC’s announced the light-heavyweights will throw down on April 8th.

The fight will be main event for UFC 210, which will take place at Buffalo’s¬†KeyBank Center.

Johnson and Cormier fought for the first time in May, 2015, not long after Jon Jones had been stripped of the light-heavyweight title. Cormier won the vacant belt by submitting “Rumble” in round three.

Since then, Johnson (18-1) has bombed out Jimi Manuwa, Ryan Bader and Glover Teixeira. Cormier (18-1) has decisioned Alexander Gustafsson and Anderson Silva.

The fighters were scheduled to square off again at UFC 206 last month, but Cormier had to withdraw due to injury.
