Friday morning, the fighters of UFC 210 hit the scales to weigh in for their scheduled bouts Saturday night. The ordeal was overshadowed by UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier not only coming in 1.2 pounds overweight, but also then making weight just moments later by using the privacy towel to offset his weight and help him in weighing-in at 205 pounds without actually cutting the weight.

The move was a rather controversial one, but worked for the light heavyweight champion, who will indeed defend his belt tomorrow night against Anthony Johnson. Following the ordeal, we have compiled the best Tweets from the MMA community regarding Cormier’s weigh-in ordeal:
