Daniel Cormier Explains What Happened During UFC 210 Weigh-Ins

It was a well-contested fight in which Cormier took the hardest shot that was offered by Johnson, who is pound-for-pound the heaviest hitter in the sport.

Johnson told the crowd he is going to beat Cormier but isn't sure how the win will come.

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

The co-main event is a veritable toss-up, with Gegard Mousasi listed at -120 on the UFC 210 betting lines against ex-middleweight champ Chris Weidman, who has a price of -110.

He said Jones should be "embarrassed" to appear at the event while still on suspension for a failed drug test, which pulled him from a fight with Cormier just two days prior to UFC 200 this past July. While Oliveira's failures to make weight as a featherweight are well documented, Brooks has had the strength to go up a weight class to welterweight.

Their first meeting, at UFC 187, was for the belt vacated by Jon Jones and Cormier claimed the spoils by submitting "Rumble" with a rear-naked choke. As I get older, and know the game more, my attitude, my mentality changes, preparation definitely changes, so I'm definitely not the same guy that I was when I first started at 24, you know and I'm 33 now, so my mindset is a lot different. But, after surviving a brutal knockdown in their first bout, Cormier will not be able to do the same the second time around.

However, unless he can definitively put Cormier away, the champion is just going to keep pressing forward looking to stifle "Rumble's" offensive threat and drag him to the mat, where he was a major advantage. Cormier has repeatedly said he needs to defeat Jones in order to complete his career, but Jones said he doesn't feel the same way about the situation. "I pay more mind to whom I associate with", Johnson, 33, said.

Daniel Cormier ups the smack talking in the latest episode of "UFC: Embedded" leading into UFC 210 on April 8th from Buffalo, New York.

The major question now framing the UFC 210 main event is whether he can do something similar to the champion. "I didn't. I didn't see it". "It's just not relevant to me right now". "I think I have unfinished business with Anthony Johnson". I am here representing my guys to the fullest extent.

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