Anderson Silva

News broke Thursday evening that Daniel Cormier will face Anderson Silva at UFC 200 in a 3 round light heavyweight fight.

The announcement comes after much speculation as to who the UFC will have step in to face Cormier on 2 day notice after Jon Jones was pulled from the event for a potential USADA anti-doping violation.

The news was broken by TMZ, who confirmed the news with the UFC. The fight will be 3 rounds, and will not be for Cormier’s light heavyweight championship.

The news was then relayed by Ariel Helwani via Twitter:

Who do you have winning this superfight between the light heavyweight champion and arguably the greatest fighter of al time?!
