Cormier Gets a Fight, UFC Signs Undefeated Prospect For UFC 170 Bout


We’ve been back and forth on this one a few times since yesterday’s news on Rashad Evan’s fight canceling injury.

The UFC originally opted to postpone the light-heavyweight showdown (between Cormier & Evans), but after a public plea from Cormier, UFC officials have signed Patrick Cummins, an undefeated all-american wrestling product out of SoCal’s Reign training center.

Cummins comes in on just 9-days notice to face the top ranked, Daniel Cormier.

UFC 170 goes down next weekend from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Cormier vs Cummins take the co-main event slot and Rousey vs. McMann are slated for the main.
