Daniel Cormier's UFC 210 Weigh-in Debacle Explained

Cormier owns a submission victory over Johnson from May 2015, when they fought for the vacant light heavyweight title.

While Cormier came out on top, Rumble bolstered his status as one of the nicest guys in the UFC when he opted to present the light heavyweight belt to his opponent. "I feel like I am a better striker now, I feel like I am a better fighter overall", Johnson said. "He's not welcome in there". Jones is eligible to fight again on July 7, 2017. Cormier warned "something bad will happen" if Jones attempts to enter the cage should the defending champion retain his title.

But Cormier claims the Georgia native was ready to break in the first fight, even before he eventually won via submission.

- The next season of The Ultimate Fighter could have a wide range of weight classes. Giardina explained that fighters are allowed an extra two hours to make weight for championship fights only, which is an NYSAC rule that apparently was allowed to supersede UFC regulations. Typically, in the early weigh-in format the UFC started previous year fighters are not given a second attempt to weigh-in. There is a 0.5lb allowance but Cormier was short of that.

Coming off a loaded 2016, UFC is desperate for a big fight, and a Cormier-Jones bout would be the rematch of the year.

"Him returning to anything like that just isn't in my thought process whatsoever", Johnson said. "I'm just focused on the guy who's trying to kill me now". With his recent successes training, Johnson heads into fight weekend cool and collected. As Jones is from Rochester, just an hour drive from Buffalo, the UFC made a decision to bring him to the event where he will speak to media on Friday.
