Sure, some shine wore off of UFC 187 when Jon Jones was stripped of his light heavyweight belt and pulled from the main event against Anthony Johnson, but an interim title tilt between Johnson and Daniel Cormier isn’t a bad backup plan.

Still not as amped for UFC 187? Check out the extended video preview, maybe that will do the trick.

The May 23 event goes down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Chris Weidman also defends his middleweight throne against Vitor Belfort in the show’s co-main attraction.
