Los Angeles, CA- A new UFC light heavyweight champion will be crowned on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (19-4) will take on Daniel Cormier (15-1) for the title left vacant by the stupidity of former champion Jon Jones (21-1). For those who don’t know, the UFC finally stripped Jon Jones of his belt after Jones hit-and-ran a pregnant woman after he smashed into her in his rental car. The woman ended up with a broken arm and Jones ended up title-less.
WHICH CORMIER WILL SHOW UP?
Daniel Cormier is coming off his first loss as a professional fighter. It was a fairly wide points loss to Jones that saw the former Olympian unable to out-wrestle the champion. It was a demoralizing defeat in a high profile fight that had been hyped by the media for months. There was a disdain shared for one another by the fighters.
