Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Jon Jones would be stripped of his UFC championship and suspended from the UFC altogether. As a result of this, Daniel Cormier has stepped in as the new opponent for Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and they will be fighting for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship.
Cormier has already gone into trash-talking mode and recently dressed down his new opponent by mentioning “Rumble’s” past submission loss to Koscheck. Cormier continued his trash talk throughout UFC Tonight and Johnson has finally broken his silence on the subject:
I'm gonna keep my mouth closed with everything I just heard and smile lol
