Daniel Cormier Issues a Warning to Rival Jon Jones

Hilda Schwartz | 20 April, 2017, 09:47

However, unlike the first fight Johnson, a knockout artist, oddly persisted with the takedown attempt and chose to wrestle and grapple with the former Olympic wrestler, playing to Cormier's strength. "This was my last fight", said an emotional Johnson. Because when I got off the first time, my ass was showing.

"I'm a better fighter". Giardina explained that fighters are allowed an extra two hours to make weight for championship fights only, which is an NYSAC rule that apparently was allowed to supersede UFC regulations.

During his post-fight interview, Johnson told Joe Rogan he was retiring from the sport.

Also now dead in the water is the hope that Johnson could have one day moved up to add new excitement to the heavyweight class, having alreaady proven he can hang there by defeating Andrei Arlovski a few years ago in the WSOF promotion.

Anthony Johnson is 12-1 over his last 13 professional fights, including a 6-1 record in the UFC, with the only blemish over that span coming against Cormier.

Cormier on if he'll fight Jon Jones or Jimi Manuwa next: "I say over and over, if you're in class and you get suspended, you can't talk about a fight".

'I didn't want it any distractions.

What New Yorkers don't like about the new free tuition scholarship
If New York moves more toward a purely publicly funded model, it may suffer from the slow decay that has hurt many state systems. Room and board make up the remaining roughly $14,000 cost for which students are directly liable.

In the co-main event of the evening there was incredible controversy and confusion inside the octagon. I'll miss MMA and every aspect of the game, but my time is over and I'm ready to watch (a) new generation take over.

"It's like you take a table and you put a bunch of kitchen appliances, and at the end of one side, there is a pot and at the other end there is a kettle", Cormier added.

Hooft: Can you tell me why you're wrestling?

Johnson has stated that if his new career doesn't pan out, he can always return to fighting but for now it appears he's resigned to forge a new path that doesn't involve mixed martial arts. "I'm exhausted and the time is now for me to keep it moving..." I like Corey Anderson, but you just beat Corey Anderson.

Cormier has won fights against Alexander Gustafsson and Anderson Silva since then, improving to 18-1 as a professional. It kind of depends on what they do with Jones.

At the start of this clip you can see Johnson turn around and ask "Where's Henri?" to the one member of his team that joined him after the fight.
