UFC 210: Cormier To Defend Vs. Johnson In Buffalo

ufc 210

The long-awaited rematch between UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson will take place at UFC 210.

The event is set for April 8 from the KeyBank Center, marking the first UFC card in Buffalo since 1995.

Cormier (18-1) has won three straight since a loss to Jon Jones, including a 2015 submission of Johnson for the vacant title. He defended it later that year successfully vs. Alexander Gustafsson and bested Anderson Silva in a non-title fight this past July.

Johnson (22-5) is 9-1 over his last 10, with the lone loss coming to Cormier. He’s finished Glover Teixeira, Ryan Bader and Jimi Manuwa all inside of the second round since that defeat.

The only other bout announced for the card is Chris Weidman vs. Gegard Mousasi.
