Dana White: Jon Jones' Return Fight Will Not Be A Main Event

As the clock ticked closer to the 11 a.m. deadline in Buffalo, UFC lightweight champion Daniel Cormier hit the scales at 206.2 pounds, 1.2 pounds over the light heavyweight limit.

Cormier came back two minutes later naked and holding a towel in front of him.

Jones even accused Cormier of cheating the scales at his controversial weigh-in, a statement the champion found laughable.

After landing several hard punches to the side of Johnson's head, Cormier secured the rear-naked choke and tapped Johnson the same way he did in their first encounter in May 2015. While "Rumble" did take Cormier down for a split second, Cormier just hung out and had Johnson in a front guillotine for a good part of the round.

The beaten fighter announced his retirement in the immediate aftermath of last night's main event.

The Red Devils are four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, with a trip to the Etihad Stadium on the horizon on April 27. Herrera said of the team's performance: "It was nearly flawless ".

UFC 210 was full of controversy and head scratchers in different areas, and Twitter was all over every aspect of the night.

The Olympian talked about his fight before stating how he hoped that this was not Johnson's last fight in the UFC. For now, however, the wrestler is focused on the Johnson fight so Jones is a "non-factor". But the accomplishment didn't seem to bring him much peace as he quickly moved to cageside to berate potential title challenger Jimi Manuwa before moving on to longtime rival Jon Jones. I'm not going to beg for cheers. "I want to do something besides going to the gym everyday punching and kicking and rolling around with another dude". I was ready to do that for you guys. However, unlike the first fight Johnson, a knockout artist, oddly persisted with the takedown attempt and chose to wrestle and grapple with the former Olympic wrestler, playing to Cormier's strength.

"He better not come in my cage after I win. I have to go to the doctor and get a CT scan to see what's up with it".

"I understand NY is new to regulating mixed martial arts, but they've been doing boxing for a long time", he said. "I trained my butt off to fight Daniel".

"I gave my commitment to another job, something that I've been wanting to do for a while", Johnson told Joe Rogan. "I'm exhausted and the time is now for me to keep it moving..."
