Before we can look at DC vs Rumble 2, let's revisit what happened in their first encounter back at UFC 187 (May 13, 2015).
Responding to his upcoming opponent Anthony "Rumble" Johnson's suggestion that the name Jon Jones will "always be around, regardless of what happened", Cormier expressed his displeasure over people's willingness to move past the events of last summer during an episode of ESPN's 5ive Rounds podcast.
Cormier has reacted in the past when fans have started cheering for Jones despite his numerous issues outside of the Octagon, but now it appears he's just accepted his role in the sport. "He's a great guy".
Historically the victor of the first bout has shown to have the advantage going into the second, but I am confident this rematch will be an exception.
Johnson may have dismissed this claim, but did admit he could barely bring himself to watch their first encounter.
"My sole focus has to be on this weekend", said Cormier, who longs for the chance to avenge his loss to Jones, but knows everything hinges on retaining his title this weekend.
Unfortunately, it's a risky proposition.
Jones served his suspension and returned at UFC 197 where he beat Ovince Saint Preux in a five-round decision for the intern light heavyweight title.
Cormier will now face "Rumble" Johnson for a second time after he won his last three fights by stoppage.
Daniel Cormier says that he doesn't expect to just rest on his laurels when fighting Anthony Johnson at UFC 210.
When asked for a response to Cormier's assessments, Johnson was brief. I had a three-week training camp.
"Who doesn't want to see Anthony fight?" We've cut weight on the highway together.
Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee aren't big stars, but they're both only a win or two away.
Cormier's head coach, Javier Mendez, is well aware of that fact and is adamant that won't be the case in this rematch.
While champion Conor McGregor's absence from the UFC has made the top of the 155-pound division a bit of a mess these days - Khabib Nurmagomedov's inability to make weight at UFC 209 hasn't helped - lightweight remains debatably the deepest division in the entire organization. Johnson is coming off three consecutive KO/TKO wins, including a 13-second stoppage of Glover Teixeira previous year. Four months after the bout, he was back in the Octagon collecting a second-round knockout win over current contender Jimi Manuwa before needing just 99 seconds to finish Ryan Bader and Glover Teixeira in his two 2016 appearances.
