UFC 210 card has Daniel Cormier as narrow underdog on odds

Katie RamirezApr 08, 2017

Cormier already expressed his displeasure on Wednesday with Jones being at UFC 210, saying the former champ should be "embarrassed to show his face in public right now".

Jones and Cormier, of course, have a history. "I want to get that belt back and fighting a guy like Gegard Mousasi is just the type of guy I need to do it". "He's not welcome in there". I just go out there and do whatever that needs to be done to win the fight, and if I have to get a knockout in the first round, then that's what happens, and if I don't, I don't. This is the division that brought the UFC to prominence, with a procession of stars like Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell keeping the promotion afloat in the early 2000s. Perhaps all the fight needed was a little drama and controversy ... which it now has after a sketchy weigh-in on the part of Daniel Cormier.

Waiting for the American is the on-a-roll Mousasi, victor of his last four fights.

Cormier, 38, said this week that Jones looks "desperate" for being in Buffalo this weekend and issued a threat if he came into the Octagon after a Cormier victory.

UFC will begin the search for the next cast of The Ultimate Fighter with an open casting call for women's strawweights and bantamweights as well as men's middleweights on Tuesday, May 23 in Las Vegas. The only blemish on Cormier's 18-1 record is a loss to Jones.

Maybe a reprise of the infamous brawl between Jones and Cormier three years ago in the MGM Grand lobby wouldn't be the worst thing.

Champion Cormier has won back-to-back fights - Alexander Gustafsson (split decision) and Anderson Silva (unanimous decision) in that order - in the UFC since beating Mr. Johnson (#1) in May 2015 via a third-round submission (rear-naked choke) for the then vacant UFC light heavyweight championship. Johnson (22-5) weighed in moments later at 203.8 pounds. "I have no intentions of going in there, harassing the guy".

Where can I watch UFC 210: Cormier vs. Johnson online?

Cormier's solid grappling skills accompanied with aggressive bursts of striking mean he has the tools to beat Rumble if he can use them efficiently. Jones wasn't afraid to provide a return volley in a war of words that has escalated between him and Cormier this week.

But before the title fight, two middleweight elites will square off in the co-main event: "The All-American" Chris Weidman (13-2) will take on long-time contender Gegard Mousasi (41-6-2). Jones is eligible to fight again on July 7, 2017.

There are very few fighters that scare people the way "Rumble" does.
