Video: UFC 200 Celebrity Tales: Daniel Cormier’s ‘A Forehead Too Far’

0

Heading into UFC 200, there has been a lot of unique promotion for what is expected to be among UFC’s biggest events in company history. On Monday, another unique form of promotion surfaced.

Featured above is a new video that UFC published on their official YouTube channel on Monday called, “UFC 200 Celebrity Tales: Daniel Cormier’s ‘A Forehead Too Far,'” which features current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier telling his side of the story regarding the infamous media day brawl between he and Jon Jones leading into their first fight in 2015.

The official description for the animated UFC 200 Celebrity Tales video, which you can watch above, reads as follows:

“With UFC 200 coming up, it’s time to revisit one of the biggest rivalries the UFC has to offer…Daniel Cormier vs Jon Jones. This, of course, is not the first time they’ll challenge each other for the belt. Lucky for us, The Chive caught up with Cormier to discuss one of the more memorable meetings they had outside of the Octagon. The story was so good that The Chive decided to animate the whole thing. Enjoy, and make sure to catch the real fight on Saturday, July 9th on Pay-Per-View.”

Headlined by Cormier-Jones 2 and featuring the UFC return of Brock Lesnar, as well as perhaps the most stacked single UFC fight card in history, UFC 200 is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 9, 2016 from the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Join us here at MMANews.com on 7/9 for live coverage of the UFC 200 pay-per-view!
