UFC Daniel Cormier

On Wednesday, it was announced light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (pictured) will grant Anthony Johnson a rematch at UFC 210.

The April 8 event goes down inside KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York.

Cormier, who has been sidelined with various injuries since blasting past Anderson Silva at UFC 200 in July, submitted Johnson just three outings ago to capture the vacant belt that was stripped from Jon Jones following his hit-and-run felony arrest.

Cormier has won three straight bouts since Jones handed him his lone professional loss at UFC 182.

Speaking of rattling off three consecutive, Johnson has also disposed of his past three victims in violent knockout fashion after losing to Cormier.

The two were initially slated to run it back at UFC 206, but Cormier was forced to withdraw with an injury.

Here is the card’s current lineup:

Gegard Mousasi vs. Chris Weidman
