Cormier is now on a three-fight winning streak, with his latest victory coming against Anderson Silva via unanimous decision at UFC 200 in July a year ago.
Now scheduled to face Anthony "Rumble" Johnson in another high-profile rematch at UFC 210, it seems that Cormier.
Silva replaces Jon Jones who was pulled from a light heavyweight title fight against Cormier due to a potential violation of the UFC's anti-doping policy.
These two were scheduled to rematch at UFC 206 last month in Toronto but the defending champion was forced to withdraw from the fight because of his groin injury.
Cormier has since defended the belt once, beating Alexander Gustafsson via split-decision.
Cormier and Johnson will face off for the second time.
"I'm not really anxious about what Anthony Johnson does", he said.
Do you think "DC" will break "Rumble" once again, or will that cannon land on Cormier's chin for possibly looking past one of the UFC'smost powerful strikers?
UFCannounced Wednesday that Cormier-Johnson 2 will headline the card, which will be held Saturday, April 8 at KeyBank Center. If I can be completely honest with you, the only guy that I actually watch what he does - try to game plan for him specifically - is [Jon] Jones.
Johnson has defeated 12 of his last 13 opponents and knocked out five of his last six, with the loss against Cormier his only defeat in the last five years.
Cormier won the vacant title with a third-round submission victory over Johnson in May 2015. Then he destroyed Glover Teixeira in just thirteen seconds at UFC 202.
