Jon Jones as confident as ever while serving latest UFC ban

Johnson, on the other hand, who Cormier submitted in the third round to win the vacated light-heavyweight crown at UFC 187, seems to have a different take on things.

First things first, however, and that's getting past the ridiculously risky Johnson.

Jon Jones has no intention of confronting Daniel Cormier inside the octagon should Cormier successfully defend the UFC light heavyweight title against Anthony Johnson at UFC 210 on Saturday.

What time is UFC 210: Cormier vs. Johnson?

Cormier needed to have a towel held around him as he had stripped down to nothing in an attempt to make the weight.

He gripped the towel in front of him and shifted his weight slightly in an effort to get rid of that extra pound.

"I made him better than he could truly be because I want to make sure I leave nothing uncovered". Both fighters had to come in at 205 pounds or less to qualify for the fight.

"It definitely lit a fire under my ass to train harder, and know what I needed to do to be this guy", Johnson said.

As the time for official weigh-ins was getting very close to elapsing, it became apparent that neither Cormier or Johnson had arrived. I don't go out there and expect it, with any expectations at all, I just go out there and I fight.

"I booked a flight to go down there, so we'll see what's what", Manuwa exclusively told Sky Sports.

Cormier has made no secret of his intention to stand in the pocket and trade punches with Johnson; however, the champ will likely revert to his patented grinding style, which is predicated on his Olympic-caliber wrestling.

"OK, I didn't. I didn't see that", Giardina said. As Jones is from Rochester, just an hour drive from Buffalo, the UFC chose to bring him to the event where he will speak to media on Friday.

De la Torre (14-6 1 N/C MMA, 2-3 1 N/C UFC), who enters UFC 210 on the smaller end of the featherweight division, is known primarily for his boxing, owning knockout power and preferring to trade in the pocket. "I can win any way I choose to".

"I have prepared myself for a much better version of Anthony Johnson", Cormier said. DC beat me, Jon beat DC, everybody picks me to beat Jon.

UFC 210 will also be shown live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 1 HD on TV, as well as on the award-winning BT Sport app, and if you're not yet a subscriber, you can check out your range of sign-up options right here. "The guy is so good in every aspect of fighting, but for him to have done the things he's done to limit the history he was making, it's insane".
