onetheless, with Jones booked and his knee still in need of repair, Cormier has indeed opted to undergo a procedure next month.
However, not before Cormier locks horns with two-time NCAA champion and United States national team member, Chris Pendleton, in a wrestling exhibition match planned for the "Fan Expo" on UFC 175 weekend (Sat., July 5, 2014) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Ariel Helwani on "UFC Tonight" has the scoop:
"Daniel Cormier will have surgery in early July. On morning of UFC 175, he'll be competing in a final amateur wrestling match at the UFC Fan Expo. After that match, he'll go under the knife and will be ready for the winner of Jones vs. Gustafsson."
