According to a recent report from the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC, Light Heavyweight contender Daniel Cormier had mentioned that he would have loved to take on the challenge of either Anthony Johnson or Chael Sonnen at UFC 170, ever since the new broke that his opponent for the night Rashad Evans was forced to withdraw from the event with a knee injury.
According to Cormier, he would fight Johnson or even Sonnen in a heartbeat and not think twice about it, adding that he would fight any of those fighters. He said that if there was a fighter willing to take him on, he would take them on as well and then he would fight Evans at a later date and there wouldn’t be any problem with that.
Reports emerging from within the UFC indicate that Chael Sonnen himself threw his name in the ring following the withdrawal of Evans from the card for UFC 170.
However, the American Gangster is already booked to take on Wanderlei Silva later in May and is currently filming the third season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil and the UFC didn’t want to pull him from those duties and pit him against DC.
Cormier admitted that it would be difficult to find someone on such short notice, adding that he recently saw Chael Sonnen asking for a bout with him, and he is okay with that. He also added that Anthony Johnson fought a couple of weeks back and so he would be in good shape to fight. He also added that if there was a fight at Heavyweight he would love to fight at Heavyweight as well.
But now, it has emerged that DC will get a fight against Patrick Cummins instead of Chael Sonnen or Anthony Johnson at UFC 170.

With Wrestle Mania fast approaching, fans of the World Wrestling Entertainment or the WWE have been salivating at the prospect of several big name matches that are about to take place at the grandest stage of them all and according to one report, which is sure to excite almost all WWE fans, the promotion has reached a verbal agreement with the legendary Hulk Hogan who could make his long awaited return to the promotion just in time for Wrestle Mania.
But the problem with the agreement is that the WWE will fail to get him into the ring for a match situation considering the poor health of the ailing legend.
According to reports, Hogan and the WWE have verbally reached a deal for him to return to the WWE. Although this news doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has followed the company over the years; the reports also suggest that he will be around the week prior to the event as well as be a part of it, albeit not in a match because there is no way he will pass the physical to compete in a match, no matter what Rowdy Roddy Piper thinks.
Piper wanted a match which would put him and CM Punk against the team of John Cena and Hulk Hogan but in all likelihood, that will not happen.
Hulk Hogan left the WWE by mutual consent a couple of years back and he was quickly snapped up by the TNA Wrestling promotion, which was trying to use his immense popularity and stardom to gain some mainstream audience as it still lacks behind the financial muscle of the WWE. But that move didn’t work out for either party and in all probability, Hulk Hogan will be returning where he made his name and fame.
