Hozier’s song “Take Me to Church” makes people violent. Dear Fights Gods, please make the main event of UFC 187 between Anthony Johnson and Daniel Cormier violent enough to live up to the standards set by “Take Me to Church”. Amen. Aaaaaaaaaamen.
UFC 187 live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada is here in it’s current state because of former/stripped UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. For Rumble Johnson the UFC 187 main event will be his first shot at UFC gold. The 6’2 Johnson was somehow a UFC 170 pound welterweight in his previous life. Now, Johnson the 205 pound sculpted statue, is on a nine fight winning streak including dispatching both Alexander Gustafsson and Antônio Rogério Nogueira in a combined 2:59 in his last two UFC appearances.
Previously on Zuffa’s “The Daniel Cormier Show”, Cormier was losing is unbeaten MMA record while he was getting manhandled by Jon Jones at UFC 182. After months of smack talk and hype, Cormier’s first loss as a MMA fighter was at the hands of his most bitter rivalry and in blowout fashion. Is a humbled Cormier the most dangerous Cormier yet?
