Weight-gate is not going away.
Following a controversial morning at the UFC 210 weigh-ins involving Daniel Cormier making weight for his main event fight against Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, former champion Jon Jones has now given his opinion on the matter.
The entire situation started when Cormier stepped onto the scale and the New York Commission read his official weight at 206.2 pounds. Because Cormier is competing in a championship bout he had to weight 205-pounds or less or risk the matchup turning into a non-title fight.
