UFC 210 results: Daniel Cormier beats Johnson, Weidman controversially loses to Mousasi

UFC 210 results: Daniel Cormier beats Johnson, Weidman controversially loses to Mousasiā€

"Rumble" was on top for the majority of the opening round but put an unexpected strategy into action as he opted to grapple with the defending champion throughout the first frame of the UFC 210 main event.

What do you make of Anthony Johnson's surprise retirement after the UFC 210 loss? "If he wants to fight me, it's a one-round fight". At 10:59 a.m., Cormier's opponent, Anthony Johnson, had yet to appear.

Regardless, Cormier and Johnson battled for the light heavyweight title on Saturday night, and the fight gave many fans deja vu, with Cormier submitting Johnson in the second round.

Johnson was best known throughout his career as one of the most ferocious power punches the sport has ever known with a long list of knockout victims throughout his time spent in the UFC competing at both welterweight and light heavyweight. While "Rumble" did take Cormier down for a split second, Cormier just hung out and had Johnson in a front guillotine for a good part of the round.

"This is my last fight. I don't think any eyes are going to be closing except for his", said UFC light heavyweight challenger Anthony Johnson.

Jones was handed a 12-month suspension by USADA and will again be eligible to fight in July this year.

But, the drama started earlier in the week, after Jones slammed Cormier for his alleged sneaky tricks to make weight, calling his antics the "dirtiest thing he's seen in sports". "I'm going to show the world not only do I have breast implants, but I'm a talented fighter".

"It can be nerve wracking but I know what I have to do to win", Johnson said.

"I hope he is not walking away from this sport".

Apparently, the New York State Athletic Commission has a rule forbidding fighters from having breast implants, which ruled out Gonzalez from her main event bout. "I want him to enjoy his last moments with the belt". I'm exhausted of getting punched by guys and rolling around on the ground with guys and stuff like that. "He's done so well knocking people out and when it doesn't go his way, he goes back to wrestling and I knew I'd get him". It kind of depends on what they do with Jones. I've been here the whole time.

"There's nothing to talk about right now", White said.
