Friday’s UFC 210 weigh-in was far from normal, but it appears all the main fights still are on after an eventful day in Buffalo, N.Y.
Daniel Cormier just barely made weight at 205 pounds ahead of his light heavyweight title defense against Anthony Johnson. However, the 205 weight came on his second try after he weighed 1.2 pounds over the limit the first time, according to MMAFighting.com.
So how did he shed 1.2 pounds that quickly? Well, it might have to do with the towel, according to some experts on Twitter.
And there were plenty more where those came from, as you can see at MMAFighting.com.
That quickly overshadowed another controversy from earlier in the day surrounding the Cynthia Calvillo vs. Pearl Gonzalez fight. That bout appeared in danger of being canceled due to Gonzalez having breast implants, which isn’t allowed for fighters under New York State Athletic Commission rules, according to MMAFighting.com.
But UFC president Dana White later announced on Twitter that the fight still is on.
You can see how the fights unfold Saturday when UFC 210 kicks off at KeyBank Center with preliminary fights on UFC Fight Pass at 6:15 p.m. ET. Prelims on FOX Sports 1 will begin at 8 p.m., followed by the pay-per-view card at 10 p.m.
