Looks like we have the making of a mega-card on our hands for the UFC’s upcoming visit to Buffalo.

Rumored match ups in the works for UFC 210 include a UFC light-heavyweight title bout between champion Daniel Cormier and challenger Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and a UFC featherweight unification title bout between champion Jose Aldo and interim champion Max Holloway.  Also rumored to be in the works is a featherweight bout between Frankie Edgar and Ricardo Llamas.

The rumors were announced on Chael Sonnen’s podcast Your Welcome by his co-host Joel Suprenant.

The LHW title bout Cormier vs. Johnson was originally scheduled for UFC 206 in December but was withdrawn when Cormier got injured just a week before.

Aldo regained the featherweight championship when former champion Conor McGregor was stripped of the title shortly after winning the UFC Lightweight championship at UFC 205 in November. Holloway then defeated former lightweight champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis for the interim 145-belt. While many hoped the unification bout would happen at UFC 208 in Brooklyn, looks like this will be moved upstate to Buffalo.

The first official bout for UFC 210, a middleweight bout between Chris Weidman and Gegard Mousasi, was announced Thursday.

UFC 210 will take place on April 8th at the Key Bank Center in Buffalo, NY. This will the UFC’s second visit to Buffalo since UFC 7 in 1995.
