Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson have received a new date for their rematch, as the UFC’s announced that the two will fight on April 8th.

The fight will serve as the headliner for UFC 210, which will take place in Buffalo, New York.

Johnson and Cormier battled for the first time in May, 2015, and the latter claimed the vacant, 205 title by submitting “‘Rumble” in round three. The light-heavyweights were booked for a rematch last month at UFC 206, but Cormier had to withdraw due to injury.

The champion “DC” (18-1) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Anderson Silva in July, while Johnson (22-5) quickly KO’d Glover Teixeira in August.

UFC 210 will be hosted by Buffalo’s KeyBank Center.
