On Saturday, April 8, the UFC hosted UFC 210: Cormier vs. Johnson 2 from the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y.
In the night’s main event, light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier clashed with Anthony “Rumble” Johnson for a second time. The pair met previously at UFC 187, with Cormier submitting Johnson in the third round via rear-naked choke. Since then, Cormier had successfully defended the belt against Alexander Gustafsson and defeated MMA legend Anderson Silva. Johnson, meanwhile, rebounded from the title defeat with three straight knockout finishes to earn another crack at gold.
The co-main event of the evening featured former middleweight titleholder Chris Weidman facing off with former Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi.
The 13-fight event kicked off Saturday at 6:15 p.m. ET with four fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts followed at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
