Rap icon Snoop Dogg has been an MMA fan for quite some time. The rapper was caught on camera with UFC superstar Jon Jones backstage at a concert, where the pair playfully sparred. Now, the rap superstar has partnered with the UFC to bring UFC 210 promos.
Earlier in the week, the UFC released a video of Snoop commentating over UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier’s highlight reel. Now, a video has been released of Snoop Dogg commentating over a highlight video of Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson’s highlight reel of knockouts.
Check out the video above!
This Saturday at UFC 210, Johnson will look to add another knockout to his highlight reel when he has his highly anticipated rematch with UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.
Going into the rematch, Johnson recently explained what he plans to do different in order to ensure victory this time around:
“(The) majority of the community believes I’m just a first-round fighter because most of my fights end in the first round,” Johnson said on today’s UFC 210 conference call. “They’re entitled to their own opinion, and that’s fine with me. I have nothing to prove to anybody except myself, so if (Cormier) wants to believe that and everyone else wants to believe that, that’s completely fine with me.”
“I’ve just got to go out there and be myself and do what I do,” Johnson said. “If I hit him one time, and he drops, then I’ll go after him again. If I hit him again, he’s definitely in trouble from the second punch, or punch or kick or whatever it is. Daniel, he has a great chin, he’s a great athlete, so he won’t be easy by any means necessary.”
Only time will tell if Johnson is able to avenge his loss to Cormier, and capture the UFC light heavyweight championship.
