Daniel Cormier Attempts To Explain 'That' Towel Incident At His Weigh

The main event between Anthony Johnson and Daniel Cormier should be fun and I'm excited to see how Chris Weidman will bounce back from his latest defeat.

Johnson pleaded no contest to a 2009 domestic violence case involving a former girlfriend and got into a dispute with a woman whose yoga mat he threw during a 2015 workout at a gym.

Reigning light-heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier warned former kingpin Jon Jones not to get anywhere near the octagon on Saturday night should Cormier successfully defend his 205-pound crown against Anthony Johnson.

If you missed the earlier episodes, we have episode 1 here, episode 2 here, and episode 3 here.

On Tomorrow night, Buffalo, New York will play host to UFC 210 and bring some of the best mixed martial artists to The Empire State.

Currently No. 5 on the Pound-for-Pound Fighter Rankings, Cormier claimed the title with a third-round submission victory over Johnson at UFC 187, but circumstances have limited him to just two octagon appearances since then. 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. "I just wanted to make sure I didn't show my junk". In the last fight between these two light heavyweights, Johnson knocked Cormier down in the first round and had a series of good strikes in open space. "The last time he fought Ovince Saint Preux, it was just a sh*tty fight, nearly as bad as me and Anderson Silva". "The difference is I am going to stand up to him. No one's addressed it; they just completely got away with one of the dirtiest things I've seen in sports". "He's so good at every aspect of fighting, but for him to have done the things he has done, to limit the history that he was making, it's insane, it's sad". He's still suspended. When he's eligible to fight, he can walk in there. The former champ was reinstated previous year, beat Ovince Saint Preux in April 2016 and then was supposed to meet Cormier, now the titleholder, in the main event of UFC 200 last July. "I didn't. I didn't see it". I haven't been out, I haven't been to a UFC event throughout my whole suspension. I'm seriously happy, dude, and I don't think I've ever been this happy.

Johnson has yet to win a championship since he made his UFC debut in 2007.

"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."

UFC 210 will be held at the KeyBank Center on Saturday.
