After Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier exchanged punches at a press conference last summer, the light-heavyweights managed to avoid a similar incident this afternoon at the UFC 182 weigh-ins.
Both Jones and Cormier weighed in at 205 pounds for their main event scrap tomorrow night in Las Vegas, and afterwards, the rivals did not square off, face-to-face. Instead, the champion Jones faced the crowd, while Cormier turned his back to the fans in attendance…
All of the fighters made weight for tomorrow’s card, except bantamweight Alexis Dufresne, who was 138 on her first attempt.
UFC 182 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena, and you can catch the main card via pay-per-view.
