UFC 187 'Embedded' Video Blog (Ep. 1): Anthony Johnson is built like a brick s--thouse

So ... about that Anthony Johnson fight.

"Rumble" will try to capture the vacated Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight title when he headlines this Saturday night's UFC 187 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And by the looks of it, he only needs one punch to finish Daniel Cormier.

Easier said than done, of course, as "DC" is one of the very best 205-pound fighters in the world, which is why their championship showdown -- which could, conceivably, go 25 minutes this weekend in "Sin City," is so compelling.

That's not all.

Also in the promotion's "Embedded" pre-fight video blog, mixed martial arts (MMA) fans get an early look at 185-pound co-headliners Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort, who battle for the "All American" strap after more than a year of delays.

And "The Phenom's" mohawk is sooooo Vitor. will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 187 fight card RIGHT HERE, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET, and then the remaining under card balance on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET before the PPV main card start time at 10 p.m. ET.
