Video: UFC on FOX analysts, including Rashad Evans and TJ Dillashaw, preview UFC 187

Championship doubleheader!

UFC Fight Night 66 has officially wrapped (full results here), so now it's time to turn our attention to UFC 187.

"Johnson vs. Cormier," which is set to go down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, this Sat. night (May 23, 2015), features the 205-pound championship main event between Anthony Johnson and Daniel Cormier, who battle for the light heavyweight title stripped from Jon Jones.

That's not all.

In the pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, reigning UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman will defend his strap (finally) against longtime division contender Vitor Belfort, after more than a year of postponements, cancellations, and online trash talk.

Still not good enough?
