New, comments

In preparation for UFC 200's historic culmination on July 9 live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has already begun to open the vault, search through thousands of fights, and give mixed martial arts (MMA) something to chew on.

This time around, UFC has pulled back the curtain and released the full fight video for UFC 187's main event matchup between Light Heavyweight contenders Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson (shown above, courtesy of UFC).

The Youtube video description is as follows:

Daniel Cormier earned the UFC light heavyweight title when he defeated one of the most feared strikers in the division in Anthony Johnson at UFC 187. Don't miss Cormier defend his belt in a rematch with Jon Jones at UFC 200 on July 9 live on Pay-Per-View.

Remember, this was the first 205-pound title fight that didn't feature Jon Jones since 2010. Johnson stepped in on short notice, Cormier rolled with the punches (literally), outworked "Rumble" and secured the third-round submission victory. In the process, "DC" became the UFC Light Heavyweight champion and hasn't looked back ever since.

Cormier will defend his title for the second-straight time when he meets Jones in a rematch from their UFC 182 meeting later next month at UFC 200.
