Jon Jones as confident as ever while serving latest UFC ban

Maybe Daniel Cormier should be a magician when he retires from the fight game.

Whatever the case may be, it'll be Cormier vs Johnson for the Heavyweight title at UFC 210 in Buffalo, NY this Saturday.

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

It's been an interesting day for mixed martial arts fans thanks to the drama surrounding the UFC 210 weigh-ins, but now there is some sense of normalcy with the latest episode of UFC Embedded being released. I mean I watched the guy, if you focus on his hands you can see him looking down and balancing out his weight just right to make 205.

Cormier first weighed in at 206.2 pounds, which would've made him ineligible for the fight.

Since the 2015 third-round submission loss to Cormier in a non-title fight, Johnson has knocked out Jimi Manuwa (second round), Ryan Bader (first round) and Glover Teixeira (first round), outlanding his foes in strikes by a combined 40-9. "But yeah, I have no intentions of going in there and harassing the guy". Cormier likes to drag the bout out and Johnson goes for the knock out.

Chris Weidman took the UFC by storm when he beat Anderson Silva twice in a row en route to a 13-0 start as a professional and a middleweight title.

I think Cormier is way too smart to just stand in front of the most risky puncher in the sport.

Efforts To Revive GOP Healthcare Bill Underway
Also at the evening meeting with conservatives were White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and budget director Mick Mulvaney. The current version of the GOP legislation erases that coverage requirement, but would let states reimpose them on their own.

Johnson, the challenger in this highly-anticipated rematch who stepped on the scale just after Cormier, had no such troubles.

"This is the time that I look forward to where", Cormier said.

That shouldn't take away from the fact that Weidman is still an excellent fighter, who is very capable on his feet, has good durability and will enjoy a definite edge in this fight when it comes to wrestling.

"He's still suspended. When he's eligible to fight, then he can walk in the cage".

The MMA world was in full-on clusterf*ck mode as UFC 210's main event nearly imploded before our very eyes. Then, you can order the main card on UFC.TV for $59.99. I'm seriously happy, dude, and I don't think I've ever been this happy. He hates me and that's safe to say.

"But now I'm going to fly to Las Vegas and then on to NY so I'll be there to throw a cat among the pigeons".

Elsewhere in UFC lightweight action, Will Brooks sits as a -275 favourite against Charles Oliveira, a +215 underdog, while Cynthia Calvillo is a -270 favourite in her women's strawweight clash with Pearl Gonzalez, a +210 underdog.
