Silva, who is a massive underdog against Cormier reached out to the UFC shortly after Cormier’s original opponent Jon Jones was pulled from the fight after being flagged by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation.
According to MMA journalist Shaheen Al-Shatti, “The Spider” weighed in well under the UFC light heavyweight limit of 205 pounds.
Al-Shatti tweeted, “Wow, Anderson Silva at 198.5. Doesn’t even need to take off his shirt. Is normal.”
