After being decisioned by his rival Jon Jones in January, Cormier laid claim to the vacated belt in May, by submitting Anthony Johnson. It was a situation no one saw coming.
Now, Cormier will take on the man who gave Jones his biggest test yet on October 3rd. It’s another title fight that no one could have called several months ago.
In advance of the fight, the UFC has posted the “True Champions Are Built” trailer, which is about Cormier and the various challenges he’s faced. You can watch it below.
