Cormier to defend his title
Ever since the much publicized exit from the UFC by former Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier ducked and dived into the vacant top spot against former No. 1 contender Anthony Johnson.
Daniel Cormier previously lost to Jon “Bones” Jones before he was stripped of his title and UFC contract, Daniel Cormier claimed the title and is set to defend it against former top contender Alexander Gustafsson.
Announced during UFC Fight Night 72, UFC 192 will take place on October 3 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson has been out of action since being TKO’d by Anthony Johnson in the beginning of the year. Currently 1-2 in his last three bouts, The Swede is focused on lifting gold and is said to be ready for his title shot.
A great match up that will no doubt see Cormier prove himself as champ and earn his stripes.
