Daniel Cormier is not happy with how the official UFC 210 poster turned out.
On April 8th, Daniel Cormier will be defending his light heavyweight title in a rematch against Anthony Johnson. But as early as now, he already holds complaints on the pre-fight promotional materials.
“DC” in particular was not happy about being his photo being at the lower half at the foreground of the poster, while the photo of “Rumble” occupied the larger space at the background. He took out his annoyance in a recent Instagram post.
What is this? How many favors did Rumble have to call in to make this shit happen? Just remember last time the challenger looked so big on the poster RDA beat cowboy in one round. #andstill @ufc
“What is this? How many favors did Rumble have to call in to make this s–t happen? Just remember last time the challenger looked so big on the poster RDA beat cowboy in one round.”
Cormier was referring to the similar treatment given to the pre-fight promo poster for the lightweight title rematch between Rafael dos Anjos and Donald Cerrone in December 2015.
Both fighters are coming off victories as they enter their rematch, with Cormier winning against Anderson Silva at UFC 200 last July via decision. Johnson, on the other hand, knocked out Glover Teixeira in the first round at UFC 202 a month later.
UFC 210 will take place at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York. It will be co-headlined by a top contender middleweight fight between former champion Chris Weidman and Gegard Mousasi.
