“I will be defending the light heavyweight championship on April 8 at UFC 210. I get to go in there and fold up Rumble Johnson like a nice load of laundry. No wrestling. I’m standing up with Rumble Johnson. You say you’re going to knock me – prove it to me on April 8th. I’ll be waiting for you. I’m going to stand with this dude. What’s the worst that can happen?”

-UFC TONIGHT host Daniel Cormier on his upcoming title defense at UFC 210.

Keller’s Analysis: What’s the worst that can happen? He gets knocked out, obviously! I doubt Rumble trains for a stand-up fight because of this quote.
