Dana White: Daniel Cormier will still fight at UFC 200

No one is more disappointed (and sad) than Daniel Cormier.

The reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion was a recent guest on "The Herd" with Colin Cowherd, to discuss his removal from the upcoming UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) main event -- through no fault of his own -- by way of Jon Jones.

"Bones" was pulled from their July 9 showdown following a potential USADA anti-doping violation.

Joining him on the FOX Sports 1 broadcast (later in the day) was UFC President Dana White, who revealed that "DC" will still compete this weekend against an opponent to be named. Unfortunately, the generous offer from Michael Bisping was summarily rejected, but no question a name will be produced by the end of the day.

Especially considering tomorrow is the UFC 200 weigh in event. That means a fighter under consideration needs to already be on weight (or currently under). Perhaps there is another barista lounging around the Las Vegas strip with nothing to do?

If not, there's always this rematch:

Stay tuned.
