Top contenders Gustafsson, Teixeira predict UFC 210's Comier-Johnson title rematch

It's officially UFC 210 fight week, which means it is now time for another installment of the UFC Embedded series.

The current king of the division is Daniel Cormier, who is defending his belt against Anthony Johnson at UFC 210 and Cirkunov has made his pick for the fight.

Meanwhile, the return of light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones looms over the bout scheduled for Buffalo, New York's KeyBank Center on April. 8, 2017.

UFC 210 takes place this coming Saturday night, April 8th in Buffalo, New York and we've got the full fight card for you below.

No. 6-ranked contender Glover Teixeira (26-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) knows that as well as anyone. Johnson disagrees, but is okay with his opponent's belief that he is only a first-round fighter. But Gustafsson said Cormier's pace and durability will ultimately prove too much and the outcome will be similar to that of the first fight.

"Rumble" was scheduled to face Jon Jones - who was champion at the time - but the fight fell apart after Jones was involved in a felony hit-and-run traffic incident three weeks before the pay-per-view event. He was knocked out by Johnson in just 13 seconds at UFC 202 in August. He enters the rematch with Cormier with the mindset of just being "Rumble". What I know with "DC" is he's a tough guy.
