Video: Watch Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier’s bizarre face-off at UFC 182 weigh-ins
LAS VEGAS – The weigh-ins were as weird as they were anticipated, but then again, have UFC 182 headliners [autotag]Jon Jones[/autotag] and [autotag]Daniel Cormier[/autotag] done anything in a traditional manner?
At today’s UFC 182 weigh-ins, which took place at Marquee Ballroom at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, reigning light-heavyweight champion Jones (20-1 MMA, 14-1 UFC) and fellow pay-per-view headliner Cormier (15-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) successfully made weight – and then provided a bizarre photo opportunity.
Rather than a fists-up, face-to-face pose, Jones instead turned to the crowd, and Cormier faced the back of the stage.
Prior to the weigh-ins, which preceded Saturday’s event at MGM Grand Garden Arena, the Nevada State Athletic Commission warned the bitter rivals about potential fines for any indiscretions. After all, the two fighters brawled during an August press conference at the same Sin City venue. For the weigh-ins, it appears neither was willing to risk it.
