Cormier takes two tries at UFC 210 weigh

Yeah, I was just very disappointed in my performance, and any time you lose, you hate losing if you're a true athlete, and I'm used to winning, and I lost, I lost to a guy who was better than me that night. "He's not welcome in there. But if he dares to step foot in that octagon, something bad will happen". Afterward, Mousasi grocery shops for his post-weigh-in celebration, while Johnson gets fitted for a suit he plans to wear as the promotion's new champion.

Expect both fighters to come out and attempt to establish range. It just might be the match of the year. Cormier controlled Johnson throughout the final two rounds to claim the title stripped from Jones, who had been suspended indefinitely by the UFC at the time after his arrest when police said he left the scene of a auto accident. Cormier's first defense, a unanimous decision over Alexander Gustafsson, saw another drop-off of more than 100,000 viewers.

Alternatively, you can tune in to BT Sport 2/BT Sport 2 HD either on TV, right here on BTSport.com or on the BT Sport app at 10.30pm on Sunday, April 9th to watch a full re-run of the UFC 210 main card. After weighing in at 206.2 just two minutes earlier, already stripped down and hidden behind a towel, Cormier then hit 205 after his brief disappearance from the weigh-in room. Cormier has repeatedly said he needs to defeat Jones in order to complete his career, but Jones said he doesn't feel the same way about the situation.

"He [Jones] better not come in my cage after I win", Cormier said, as quoted on MMAFighting. "There was no danger in that fight". He hates me. That's safe to say. "If anything, I showed I could still get the takedown whenever I chose to". Mousasi is now one of the most active fighters in the division, something he sees as an advantage.




Now the 205-pound class has neither the depth nor the superstars.

On that occasion, Cormier's wrestling prowess overcame Johnson's brute strength and he went on to beat the number-one ranked fighter with a rear-naked choke in the third round.

It's been an interesting day for mixed martial arts fans thanks to the drama surrounding the UFC 210 weigh-ins, but now there is some sense of normalcy with the latest episode of UFC Embedded being released.

UFC will begin the search for the next cast of The Ultimate Fighter with an open casting call for women's strawweights and bantamweights as well as men's middleweights on Tuesday, May 23 in Las Vegas.
