UFC welterweight champ Daniel Cormier will be back in the Octagon December 10 opposite Anthony Johnson, who he has defeated once before. The fight will be a part of UFC 206, in Canada.
With few interesting options in the 93kg division, the Johnson rematch became inevitable. With a devasting 14-second knockout over Glover Teixeira, Johnson placed himself as a viable challenger. In his previous attempt in May 2015, he was dominated by DC until tapping out to a rear naked choke.
Since they met, Cormier beat Alexander Gustafsson by split decision and then beat Anderson Silva in a non-title bout at UFC 200.
