Cormier barely makes weight after second attempt

Weigh-in0 Comments

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.
