Daniel Cormier prepared to put friendship aside & “smack Bisping around”

Daniel Cormier

Although UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, and UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier frequently do Fox Sports 1 shows together, there is likely some tension between the pair given that Bisping knocked out Cormier’s teammate, Luke Rockhold, to win the belt at UFC 199.

During a Q&A session with fans on Twitter, Cormier was asked about the possibility of a fight with Bisping:

So far neither man officially has a fight booked inside the Octagon, however UFC President Dana White has made it clear that Bisping’s next opponent will be Dan Henderson. On the other hand, Cormier, who is fresh off a win over Anderson Silva at UFC 200, is looking to fight the winner of Anthony Johnson vs. Glover Teixeira, which goes down at UFC 20W.
