Johnson will file a formal complaint about Cormier’s weigh-in. Johnson’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz says he immediately informed Dana White about the action before the match, but did not mention it publicly in case it affected the fight, which Cormier won. Abdelaziz:
Anthony’s rights were violated. We will go through the proper legal channels to fix this. Everybody saw what happened. How do you lose 1.2 pounds in two minutes?..We don’t want to take anything away from [Cormier]. He earned that win. But [Cormier] needs to give up 20 percent of his purse to Anthony. He had two extra hours to cut the weight and I think he probably would have made it — but as it happened, I don’t think he made weight…I understand New York is new to regulating mixed martial arts, but they’ve been doing boxing for a long time,” he said. “Everybody is trying to sweep this under the rug, but it’s not going to happen.

At the UFC 210 early morning weigh-in, Cormier requires two attempts to make weight.Cormier initially weighs 206.2-pounds, which would have likely caused his fight with Johnson to become a non-title bout. However, the New York State Athletic Commission allows Cormier a second attempt, where he weighs in at 205-lbs, losing almost a pound and a half in a few minutes. NYSAC officials deny Cormier was pushing down on towels to disperse his weight.

Johnson says McGregor’s success has opened the door for a lot of his fellow fighters to step through.
Conor earns every penny that he gets; every cent, every dollar. I take nothing away from him – get it while you can. Our careers in this sport are pretty short. They can end in a split second. Some people deserve it because they sell the fight and do all the talking, and some people don’t. I think Conor has helped out everybody to get better paid. Hopefully everybody goes up, up on the ladder when it comes to pay. If they can shell out that much money [to him], then everybody deserves a raise.

We came out here eight weeks early. You need to acclimatise to this air. It’s desert out here. It’s unforgiving out here. We got the gym set up — state of the art facility. And I brought out my team. People who’ve been grinding with me since day one… If feel I jumped up three levels, as a martial artist, as a fighter, and as a man. It’s been an amazing experience.

He can talk all the shit he wants. Don’t bug me none…He’s been watching me the whole time. After that last fight he’s doing what he should be doing. Training and doing more rounds. Who gave him the game plan?
