There was just one teeny tiny issue with the UFC’s advertising of Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson

Someone can expect a serious talking-to

There are only 11 world titles in the UFC so it’s pretty damn difficult to mix them up.

And while both Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson have both competed at heavyweight in the past, we all know that they are most definitely fighting for the UFC light heavyweight title on Saturday night.

Cormier puts his 205lbs crown on the line against arguably the pound-for-pound hardest hitter in all of mixed martial arts, Anthony Johnson, in the main event of UFC 210 this weekend and the pair have been up to their eyeballs in promotional obligations in the lead-up.

They’ve already been forced to fly to Connecticut to hype up their rematch on ESPN before flying back to Buffalo, New York, which is where UFC 210 is scheduled to take place.

But somebody in the UFC’s design department must have forgotten all about a little guy by the name of Stipe Miocic as Cormier vs. Johnson was advertised as a heavyweight title fight during fighter face-offs on Wednesday.

As Cormier squared off with ‘Rumble’, eagle-eyed fight fans couldn’t help but notice the glaring error in the background of the shot.

Now we know everybody is capable of making a mistake – one look at the cock-ups in the early stages of Reebok’s relationship with the UFC will tell you that – but this is a pretty high-profile fight and they should really be getting the title right.

Just more proof that, in 2017, world titles have never meant less.
