The only two losses in that fourteen-fight stretch for Johnson were to the champion Cormier, who after his victory, was hoping this would not be the end for his two-time opponent.
It might make booking Jones' next fight that much more hard considering he's inarguably the No. 1 contender to face current champion Daniel Cormier, who defeated Anthony "Rumble" Johnson at UFC 210 on Saturday night. He came back a short time after and he weighed in exactly at 205.
IF UFC 210 is going to be half as exciting as all the controversy leading up to today's event, then we are in for one hell of a card. If I don't like it I can come back and still fight, hopefully the world will still accept me with open arms. "I know I have great people around me". "It's not MMA related or anything like that, it's just time for me to move on to something else".
"He was trying to run some stupid jokes like he can pick on me, but that's not happening-I don't get picked on", Manuwa said. When you get your [expletive] together and you're ready to fight, I'm where waiting for you!
When it was announced he made 205, everyone was aghast and his team whooped it up like they had won a rematch over Jon "Bones" Jones. Johnson went from doing fairly well to losing in what seemed to be only a matter of seconds.
North Korea may have tested new technology in latest missile launch
These launches defy United Nations resolutions that ban North Korea from any use of ballistic missile technology whatsoever. Kim's country has been increasing its nuclear presence, causing a growing rift with the U.S. .
Though he never reached the mountain top of being a UFC champion, he's a guy many fight fans will remember fondly for his incredible one-punch knockout power. When the two were separated, Johnson fired off head kicks that caught his face, and then ended the opening frame with a last-second takedown.
Manuwa last fought when he headlined UFC Fight Night in London, knocking out Corey Anderson in the first round to improve to 17-2 in the paid ranks.
Jones already holds a win over Cormier and the two fighters have engaged in one of the most bitter rivalries in the history of mixed martial arts. Why would I go into another sport that's the same thing as this, and you take all this impact and stuff?
"He's got a chin but I don't think he can take my best shot and I'll play it different than Rumble did if I fought him". "To knock out Cormier would be the icing on the cake you know what I mean?"
"What's going to happen now that I've been training for him for 12 weeks?"
