Daniel Cormier Controversial UFC 210 Weigh in! -1.2 LB IN 2 minutes! Daniel Cormier somehow loses 1.2 pounds in 2:24 in controversial UFC 210 weigh-in. Daniel Cormier DC stepped on the scale at 206.2 pounds at the UFC 210 early weigh-ins Friday morning. At that point, everyone assumed the title fight in Buffalo was off. Cormier, the UFC light heavyweight champion, needed to hit the limit of 205 in order for the belt to be on the line and he did not. Cormier came in with less than five minutes to go in the two-hour weigh-in window. Somehow, though, Cormier came back just 2:24 later and weighed in at 205, losing 1.2 pounds in that short amount of time. Cormier put his hands on the towel while on the scale and appeared to put some of his weight on it, though it’s unclear if it affected the reading. He needed the towel, because he stripped down to attempt to make the weight. The New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) considered the weight valid. Typically, in the early weigh-in format the UFC started last year fighters are not given a second attempt to weigh-in. Anthony Johnson, the light heavyweight, weighed in shortly afterward, before the two-hour window was up, and he was 203.8. The light heavyweight title fight is now official for UFC 210 on Saturday night at KeyBank Arena in Buffalo, but not without some controversy. NYSAC executive director attempts to explain Daniel Cormier's controversial UFC 210 weigh-in Did Daniel Cormier engage in a bit of trickery to make weight for UFC 210? If so, the executive director of the New York State Athletic Commission said he didn’t see it. Cormier came in at 206.2 pounds in his first attempt at weighing-in Friday for his UFC light heavyweight title defense against Anthony Johnson at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, 1.2 pounds over the championship weight limit. Less than three minutes later, a naked Cormier appeared to lean on his towel in his second weigh-in attempt, an old-school move used by amateur wrestlers looking to make weight. It worked, as Cormier came in at 205 on the dot, 1.2 pounds lighter than the first attempt. Adding to the weirdness, Johnson, also looking to hit 205, came in at 203.8 — exactly 1.2 pounds under — moments later. But when talking with reporters afterwards, NYSAC executive director Tony Giardini said he didn’t notice if Cormier was making an attempt to game the system. “I didn’t see it,” Giardini said. “Either way, he weighed in 1.2 pounds less the second time.” Then there was the mere fact Cormier was allowed to weigh in a second time at all. Under the early weigh-in systems pioneered by the state of California last year and adopted by most of the country, fighters are allowed a two-hour window during which the can check in at any time. But in exchange, they’re not allowed a second weigh-in attempt once they hit the scale. NYSAC, however, deferred to a state rule in which championship fighters are allowed to hit the scale a second time within two hours if they miss weight. “The policy of the athletic commission in championship bouts is to allow fighters to get on the scale a second time if the fighter is overweight the first time he gets on the scale,” Giardini said. “So he came in, and he was 1.2 pounds overweight the first time he got on the scale. He’s allowed, under commission policy, up to two hours to get back on the scale. He got back on a short time later, and he weighed in at exactly 205. So according to the commission policy, it’s a legal weigh-in, and he’s right on weight. That’s only for championship fights.” As for how Cormier could possibly lose 1.2 pounds in such a short amount of time, Giardini said the commission takes a don’t ask, don’t tell approach. “We don’t ask that question,” Giardini said. “I heard it was excessive sweat and he might have been holding the towel, but I don’t know for sure.”
