Daniel Cormier not thrilled to find himself being dwarfed by Anthony Johnson on UFC 210 poster

Daniel Cormier (EL, MMAF)

Daniel Cormier’s light heavyweight title defense against Anthony Johnson is exactly one month away, and the champ is already feeling the shade being thrown at him.

As in, he appears two times smaller than the challenger Johnson on the official UFC 210 promo poster. On the poster, Johnson, cast in red hues, is the entire backdrop mashing his fists while the champion Cormier is in lighted focus below.

Cormier put out a message on his Instragram asking how many favors Johnson had to call in to be the hulking figure in the scenario.

UFC 210 takes place at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York, on April 8. For the 37-year old Cormier, it will be his second title defense, his first coming against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 192 (decision victory). It will be a rematch with Johnson, whom he fought for the vacant 205-pound title in March 2015 at UFC 187.
