Daniel Cormier’s exciting weigh-in ahead of UFC 210

Daniel Cormier misses weight before UFC 210 by 1.2 pounds. He then returns minutes later and tips the scale at the correct weight of 205.

UFC 210 takes place tonight live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Buffalo, New York.  The main event features Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier and No. 1-contender Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, in this highly anticipated rematch of their fight at UFC 187 (the fight in which Cormier originally won the Light Heavyweight title).

The weigh-ins were held yesterday morning and there was a bit of a controversy, particularly surrounding Cormier.  In one of the craziest moments in UFC weigh-in history, D.C. stepped on the scale weighing in at over the LHW limit at 206.2 pounds, putting him at 1.2 lbs. over weight.  He then returned a little over two minutes later weighing in at exactly 205 pounds.

The situation confused a lot of people.  They wondered if D.C. was even allowed to step onto the scale more than once.  Others say he was pressing down on a towel during his second try, which could have affected the result.  Fighters are allowed to get on the scale again if they miss weight the first time around, according to the New York State Athletic Commission’s policy regarding championship bouts.  They are then granted up to two hours to return and weigh in a second time.  Fighters are not permitted to leave for non-championship fights.  The athlete may drop their drawers and step back on the scale, but that would be their final fighting weight.
