Johnson is content that Cormier, 38, is the one navigating the drama this time around.

Whatever the case may be, it'll be Cormier vs Johnson for the Heavyweight title at UFC 210 in Buffalo, NY this Saturday. 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.

Jon Jones is not pulling any punches on the controversial UFC 210 weigh-in. Also, the placement of the scale itself on a certain surface can fluctuate weights, and make you seem lighter than you really are with the lack of force.

It's now all over, but the fighting as all 26 fighters made weight for UFC 210. 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 vehicle accident. "But yeah, I have no intentions of going in there and harassing the guy".

Daniel Cormier won the light heavyweight title in a bout against Anthony Johnson back in 2015, and has held on to it since then.

"You just want me to hide forever?" "I would imagine there has to be some type of commission or something to go back and see this blatant foul play and address it".

Cormier earned the victory with a lopsided unanimous-decision verdict in a wrestling-heavy match, but the sold-out T-Mobile Arena crowd rained boos on him while the referee raised his hand and questioned if his best was past him afterwards. "Stay tuned! That's all I'll say".

On Episode 5 of UFC 210 Embedded, the event's stars perform for fans at Open Workouts, and middleweights Gegard Mousasi and Chris Weidman receive gifts from the Buffalo Sabres hockey team. I just go out there and do whatever that needs to be done to win the fight, and if I have to get a knockout in the first round, then that's what happens, and if I don't, I don't.

"I don't see it as a threat, I see it as a challenge", Weidman said.

"I know what you did". "It's just not relevant to me right now".

But a Johnson win likely won't come unless he finishes this fight early. "I think I have unfinished business with Anthony Johnson".

"I'm still the youngest guy in the division that's in the top 10 - and that should be a scary thought for a lot of these guys, how preserved I am, and how hungry and rejuvenated I am."
Weidman racked up his second KO loss when he was caught with a knee by Yoel Romero in the opening of the third round at UFC 205.
