Anderson Silva set to face Daniel Cormier at #UFC200

As reported by Brazilian outlet Globo former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva will step in to face Daniel Cormier at #UFC200.

Cormier was due to fight Jon Jones in the headline bout of the event but following a USADA doping violation, Jones was pulled from the fight just three days before the event.

Cormier will now instead face Anderson Silva who is coming off of a split decision loss to current UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping in February.

Silva is 0-3-0-1 in his last four UFC bouts and is desperate to get back to winning ways to finalise his legacy which saw him undefeated inside the Octagon from April 2006 to October 2012.
