UFC 210 - Cormier, Johnson, Weidman feature in Episode 1

In the main event at UFC 210, Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson will face off for the second time.

While the challenger cackled at the notion of him becoming a submission fighter, it also underlines the blessing and the curse that carrying such prodigious power can be inside the cage. The next challenger for the title could be the victor of the Alexander Gustafsson-Glover Teixeira fight in May.

Cormier lost to Jones by decision at UFC 182 in January 2015.

Jones, who tested positive for the anti-oestrogenic substances clomiphene and letrozole, was handed a one-year suspension by both USADA and the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his infringement, but he will be eligible to return to action anytime after the 6th of July 2017.

It turns out the heavyweight belt is on the line, which must be news to Stipe Miocic.

Some fighters are guilty of overlooking an opponent they've already defeated when they encounter them for the second time, an act which often winds up with them losing. If Johnson is going to finish Cormier, he needs to make sure that his follow-up is just as effective as his initial explosion.

But to Cormier (18-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC), he is the guy who quit. "I'm a straight shooter". Don't sit there and wait for something to happen because [your opponent] is going to be stronger. I won't downplay his accomplishments and say he's not worthy.

Antonio Conte commits to Chelsea for next season
Conte, in his first season as Chelsea boss, added: "We must be focused and try to win six games and take three points". City must start turning draws into wins, though, as they are without a victory in the last four Premier League games.

Considerable uncertainty over Trump fiscal stimulus plans: Fed
Trump has promised to lower corporate tax rates and spend at least $1 trillion on infrastructure but has provided little details. Officials supported a gradual pace of rate hikes but said they could change their mind if the economy unexpectedly heated up.

Arsenal fight back to draw with Man City
Stewart Robson believes Arsene Wenger's "ego" will keep him at Arsenal following this season to maintain the status quo. Overall I felt it was a mental test and overall you could see the team was touched on the confidence front.

"I expect a better Rumble than we got the first time, but Rumble should know to expect a better DC than he got the first time". "It was eating at me the whole time and in the middle of the night, I was like, 'Screw it!' and chose to watch the fight". He's so tough, and if I don't get through him, everything else is for nothing; it doesn't matter.

"But ultimately it will come down to my rivalry with Jones", said Cormier during the UFC 210 media conference call. He is unclear who will fight for the title after UFC 210, but has an idea of what he would like to have happen. At least not next week in Buffalo or until one of them manages to step into the octagon with Jones and get their hand raised when the fight is done. We know exactly what he did. Because we know after Jones comes back... "And I fight Cain Velasquez nearly every day".

"It's like beating your head against a brick wall - the wall ain't going nowhere, and eventually your head is going to bust open and you're going to hurt yourself very badly". "Because the guy had his problems outside the octagon, but in there he's done his job".

"You keep making mistakes during a fight, pretty soon you'll break mentally", Johnson offered.

"I don't have any expectations after this fight", Gustafsson told MMAjunkie. They have me ready and they have me right. My mind, my focus, is Glover now, 100 percent.

"I am not afraid of that man in any way, shape or form", Cormier said.
