The UFC 210 early weigh-ins were not without controversy.
All 26 fighters on tomorrow night’s (April 8) card tipped the scales earlier today. Ultimately all fighters made weight, but an unusual circumstance occurred during Cormier’s weigh-in.
Initially, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion weighed in at 206.2 pounds. That’s 1.2 pounds over the championship weight limit and usually fighters aren’t given a second attempt at tipping the scales for early weigh-ins. Cormier did get the chance and weighed 205 pounds, saving the title bout.
Also, while Cynthia Calvillo and Pearl Gonzalez made weight for their planned strawweight scrap, the fight will not happen. The New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) has pulled Gonzalez due to breast implants.
