Details are still rolling in, but it appears Daniel Cormier will remain on the UFC 200 card.
And he’ll do so against Anderson Silva. Combate out of Brazil was the first to report the fight.
The former UFC middleweight champion was planning on attending International Fight Week to induct long-time friend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira into the UFC Hall of Fame. Now, he’ll have another job in Las Vegas.
Cormier was scheduled to defend his title against Jon Jones in the main event Saturday night, but Jones was removed from the card following a potential doping violation.
The bout will be a non-title affair and take place in the light heavyweight division.
