Cormier defends title, thrives as UFC villain

"The UFC could offer me the victor of Cormier vs. "Rumble".

Anthony "Rumble" Johnson is out to prove that history can be written when he steps into the cage at UFC 210 at KeyBank Center in Buffalo tonight. The fight came to an end when Cormier pulled Johnson's head back with one arm to slide his other under the neck. However, Cormier warned that Jones should not try to go inside the cage or "something bad will happen".

Cormier defeated Johnson to win the vacated light heavyweight title in their first go-round, a matchup that was arranged on short notice after champion Jon Jones, scheduled to fight Johnson, was suspended for a hit-and-run incident that forced him to vacate the title.

Daniel Cormier explained that as he gets older, the cut to light heavyweight has gotten more hard. However, Cormier disappeared for a few minutes and came back for a second go.

'This was my last fight, ' Johnson said.

UFC 210 was full of controversy and head scratchers in different areas, and Twitter was all over every aspect of the night.

Since then, to earn his way back into the UFC light-heavyweight title picture, Johnson has won three straight fights, all by knockout.

Three months from completing a yearlong doping ban, Jones said Friday he is focusing exclusively on reclaiming the light heavyweight title he's lost twice due to suspensions.

"The thing about the whole Jones thing, I'll fight Jon Jones".

Cormier needed to have a towel held around him as he had stripped down to nothing in an attempt to make the weight. "I'm going to show the world not only do I have breast implants, but I'm a talented fighter". It's just time for me to move on to something else.

But this wasn't the only surprising thing to happen at the main event. I'm exhausted of getting punched by guys and rolling around on the ground with guys and stuff like that.

"I hope that Anthony Johnson isn't walking away from this sport".

"I've tried to improve everything", Johnson said after his open workout.

"I gave my commitment to another job, something I've wanted to do for a while". By the time he tried to get out, Cormier was all over him. It kind of depends on what they do with Jones. "He's still on suspension".
