Tuesday September 15, 2015– UFC® brings a light heavyweight title bout to the Lone Star State as newly crowned champion Daniel Cormier makes his first title defense against former title challenger and second-ranked Alexander Gustafsson in a five-round main event. UFC® 192: CORMIER vs. GUSTAFSSON takes over Toyota Center on Saturday, October 3. UFC returns after three consecutive sellout events, the most recent a heavyweight championship bout in 2013 between Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos.
Cormier (15-1, fighting out of San Jose, Calif.), the second U.S. Olympian to become a UFC champion (women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was the first) captured the vacant 205-pound world title after submitting No. 1 contender Anthony Johnson at UFC 187. Looking to begin his reign atop the light heavyweight division, Cormier gladly welcomes his next opponent, Gustafsson, to center stage. Having defeated legends and former champions in Dan Henderson, Frank Mir and Josh Barnett, “DC” plans to add another name to his near perfect record.
Gustafsson (16-3, fighting out of Stockholm, Sweden), a deadly striker who rose to title contention with 10 knockout victories and eight first-round finishes, makes his way back to the Octagon® with his eyes locked on UFC gold. Almost two years removed from a thrilling back-and-forth battle against former champion and pound-for-pound best Jon Jones, which earned Fight of the Year honors in 2013, the Swede will finally get a second chance at the championship title.
UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and No. 1 contender Alexander Gustafsson talk about their title showdown at UFC 192, while Joe Rogan offers his thoughts on the matchup.
