Daniel Cormier Miraculously Makes Weight At UFC 210 Weigh
In a rematch of their UFC 187 bout, Daniel Cormier defeated Anthony Johnson, keeping his light heavyweight belt.
But Johnson, who has piled up three impressive UFC victories, says he has avoided such trouble. "I can try to predict the future, but it's a prediction, not a fact, so I've just got to go out there and do my thing and hope for the best".
Cormier (18-1) finds himself in a almost identical situation for Saturday's championship rematch at UFC 210 at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, sitting as a -105 underdog (bet $105 to win $100) according to oddsmakers.
UFC President Dana White was as surprised as anyone by Johnson's announcement but said he supported his decision.
Rumors have swirled since Saturday night that Johnson had accepted an off-field position with an National Football League team, but he hasn't made any kind of confirmation about his new career after announcing his retirement.
After calling his MMA career quits at 33 years old, after over a decade as a pro fighter and establishing a reputation as perhaps the most devastating hitter in the sport's history, you'd think Anthony Johnson would be keen to remain "Rumble".

As for Cormier, he has no shortage of options next and he made that clear as he engaged in some post-fight smack talk with perennial rival Jon Jones and England's own Jimi Manuwa, both of whom were in attendance in Buffalo's KeyBank Centre. I would love to fight him again and beat him, but if I did not fight him, especially for things that I can not control, I would be fine. "I definitely feel like it's my time right now", Johnson said.
Cormier anxiously approached the scale on Friday morning just minutes before the 11 a.m. deadline of the two-hour weigh-in period and topped out at 206.2 pounds.
"I will never, ever forget you".
The arbitration panel found that while Jones was not a drug cheat and the fighter himself claims he ingested the banned substances when taking Cialis, a male enhancement supplement. I'm not going to beg for cheers. He's an elite athlete, and I've always known that.
"I guess I found out tonight that even a shin to the face ain't going to knock me out", he said.
Cormier has won fights against Alexander Gustafsson and Anderson Silva since then, improving to 18-1 as a professional. My life has been unbelievable and I haven't come close to scratching the surface.
