Daniel Cormier to finally defend light-heavyweight title after 17 months

Daniel Cormier to finally defend light-heavyweight title after 17 months

In June, they'll have the chance to make their mark in the headliner of UFC Fight Night: Oklahoma City when they face off in a match that could have big implications for the lightweight division. And boy have things changed.

It's been a long time coming, for the UFC to make its way to Buffalo.

Just as Tom Brady & Co. subsequently beat everyone that stood on the other side of the line of scrimmage from that point forward, Cormier has done the same in the cage, turning back Alexander Gustafsson in an instant classic at UFC 192 before beating Anderson Silva on two-days notice at UFC 200 when Jones was pulled from their scheduled rematch after testing positive for a banned substance. So Toronto's loss appears to be Buffalo's gain. I'll think about whoever and whatever (on) April 9.

Given that Dana White has already suggested that Jones is likely to fight for the title upon his return, many are expecting the UFC to announce that he will face the victor of Cormier vs Johnson 2 sometime later this year.

Thirty-eight-year-old Cormier came out that contest victorious, defeating Johnson via third round submission.

However, if Cormier can survive the storm (which he showed he can do), then I see no reason why he won't be able to smother Johnson en route to a late finish as the gas tank drain. It landed flush, and sent DC flying across the canvas, but it really didn't seem to phase Cormier.

Founder of MyMMANews.com - After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I made a decision to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold.

Johnson, of course, has a different take on the rematch. He feels it's just more chatter from Cormier trying to get into his head, but instead of listening to the light heavyweight champion blather on about his strategy, Johnson prefers to just tune him out altogether.

Johnson takes another shot at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight gold against Daniel Cormier. In an interview, "Rumble" said Jones will, "always be around, regardless of what happened". According to FightMetric, Cormier was only 3 of 8 for takedowns throughout the fight. They have me ready and they have me right.

Cormier isn't here to play nice with Jones. I just found out he just talks. "When you're part of something like that, it stays with you". This is my second time, technically, training for him.

Georges St. Pierre has been careful about not revealing too much about his plans, but boxing coach Freddie Roach wasn't quite as guarded on The MMA Hour podcast with Ariel Helwani this week.

After a botched attempted to cut to lightweight, Thiago Alves will move back up to welterweight to fight fellow UFC veteran Patrick Cote. You cheer this guy for saying he's not going to do these things anymore.

The Habs were in town for a Wednesday night tilt against the hometown Sabres. Don't sit there and wait for something to happen because [your opponent] is going to be stronger.

Cote says he likes that matchup. The fans that support me, they share in those moments with me. Henrik Lundqvist has a hard time against Montreal and Montreal has a lot of success against the Rangers.
