UFC 226: Miočić vs. Cormier (7/7/2018) - Las Vegas, NV (T-Mobile Arena)


Recommended Posts

Big John McCarthy said that when Cormier defended against Anthony Johnson, Cormier went from 205 at the weigh-ins to 236(w/ sweat pants on) the night of the fight. I'm really interested in what he looks like in fight without having to do that kind of weight cutting.

Everyone made weight at the early weigh ins for this show with the single exception being Chiesa missing weight and surprisingly not Anthony Pettis. 

Cormier came in heavier for the title fight than the guy who has been at HW his entire career.

 Just like Marreta did yesterday, Alexander Volkov weighed in officially to become the backup guy for tomorrow night.

I'm not surprised at all by Cormier's weight.  He's one of those dudes who seems to struggle mightily with every single weight cut.  The secret about why heavyweight MMA sucks is that anyone who can cut enough weight fights at 185 or 205.  If the Bellator heavyweight tournament has taught us anything it is that a big middleweight is just a small heavyweight.  Luke Rockhold, Yoel Romero, Jacare, shit maybe even Darren Till, would be over the 205 floor if they didn't cut any weight.  Seriously, who was the last fighter to weigh in at less than 230 for a heavyweight fight?

Between the Rountree surprise, and Pettis shutting Chiesa's mouth, I'm having a good night so far. And we haven't even gotten to the hosses.
