VIDEO | Daniel Cormier misses weight, then makes weight in chaotic sequence

Friday morning, news surfaced that UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier missed weight for his UFC 210 scrap with Anthony Johnson, weighing in at 206.2 pounds, 1.2 pounds over the required light heavyweight title fight limit of 205 pounds.

Interestingly enough, Daniel Cormier was allowed to come back out and weigh in once again, and allegedly made 205 pounds, just moments after weighing-in overweight. This left many media members baffled over how the champ lost so much weight in a moment.

This marks the first time that a fighter has been allowed to weigh in twice during the course of the UFC’s ‘early weigh-in period’.

Cormier allegedly was caught on camera pressing down on the towel to offset his weight:

Interestingly enough, Anthony Johnson then weighed in, the last fighter on the card to step on the scale, and made weight at 203 pounds, two pounds less than the required light heavyweight title fight limit of 205 pounds.
