UFC 210 takes place on Saturday, April 8th, 2017 at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York. This will be the fourth UFC event in New York since the state legalized mixed martial arts in March 2016. It is the first time the UFC has brought a card to Buffalo since UFC 7 on Sept. 8, 1995.
Daniel “DC” Cormier will look to show the world once more how much of a fighting champion he is. Cormier takes on Anthony “Rumble” Johnson for the UFC’s Light Heavyweight title.
During Thursday’s UFC 210 conference call, a reporter asked how the knockout artist might win using something other than his fists, Cormier butted in and said, “He does not believe that if he doesn’t knock me out, he’s going to get his hand raised. That’s why he didn’t answer your question. Anthony’s a smart guy. He won’t lie to you.”
When Johnson tried to defend himself to offer a contrary opinion, Cormier butted in again.
“He has no doubt in his mind that if he doesn’t knock me out, he’s (not) going to win,” the champ said, referencing the reporter by name. “So don’t waste your breath and your time. He knows. He knows his only path to victory.”
Cormier proved these words two years via a third round rear naked choke in the first match-up.
