Daniel Cormier and Andre Ward discuss his UFC 210 fight with Anthony Johnson.
The octagon will return to Buffalo on April 8 for UFC 210, a pay-per-view event headlined by a light heavyweight title fight rematch featuring current champion Daniel Cormier taking on top division contender Anthony “Rumble” Johnson.
The pay-per-view fight card will mark the first event in Buffalo since UFC 7 which took place way back in 1995.
Prior to the highly anticipated event, watch Daniel Cormier breakdown his rematch with Anthony Johnson to boxing star Andre Ward in the above video.
Cormier and Johnson first met at UFC 187 in 2015, where Cormier was able to weather some early adversity and eventually score a submission victory over Johnson.
Cormier will be riding a 3-fight win streak into the bout, which includes his aforementioned win over Johnson for the vacant light heavyweight championship. Most recently, Cormier defeated MMA icon Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva at UFC 200 in July, this after Jon Jones was pulled from the bout just 48 hours before the event due to a failed drug test which was later deemed to be the result of a tainted supplement.
Similarly, Johnson will be riding a 3-fight win streak into the bout, going 3-0 since dropping the loss to Cormier at UFC 187. Most recently, Johnson picked up a brutal 13-second KO win over Glover Teixeira at UFC 202. While he was slated to fight Cormier at UFC 206 in December, the bout was postponed after Cormier withdrew from the fight with a torn adductor in his groin.
