Kevin Lee discusses ‘mistimed’ UFC 216 weight cut, coming back for second attempt
(https:)
Kevin Lee seems to be putting his weight-cutting issues behind him, hours out of the biggest fight of his life. The top UFC lightweight contender needed two attempts Friday morning to reach championship weight for his UFC 216 interim title bout against Tony Ferguson. Lee first weighed in at 156 — one pound over the 155-pound maximum. Due to Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) rules, Lee was given one more hour to reach the mark and he hit it — 154.5 — with just minutes to spare at around 12:15 p.m. local time.

Daniel Cormier calls Anthony Johnson ‘f**king soft’ amidst comeback rumors
(https:)
When Anthony Johnson tapped out to Daniel Cormier at UFC 210 earlier this year, it was supposed to be his final act in the cage. After coming up short for a second time against Cormier, Johnson announced a shocking retirement from the sport to venture into the marijuana business. But earlier this week, Johnson’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz told Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour that “Rumble,” was already contemplating a return to fighting, and that doesn’t sit right with his most recent opponent. On the most recent edition of his podcast Talk & Talker, Cormier spoke out about Johnson’s short-lived retirement, saying that it seems Johnson was just bitter about losing to him for a second time.
