The UFC’s long awaited return to Toronto is now just months away and it gets a big title fight. Current UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier will rematch Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson from their 2015 bout at UFC 206.
The UFC made the news official Wednesday evening of October, 5.
Cormier won the vacated title by surviving the early onslaught and winning by a third-round rear naked choke against a very game Anthony Johnson.
Johnson quickly rebounded and has added three straight knockout victories, with the latest one coming by thirteen second starching of Glover Teixeira.
UFC 206 happens live December 10 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. Tickets go on sale October, 20.
