UFC 182 Jones vs. Cormier Weigh-In Results
The much anticipated UFC light heavyweight title bout between champion Jon “Bones” Jones and number one contender, Daniel Cormier is finally here. The two fighters who have been at each other’s throats for the past six months will meet tomorrow night in the main event of UFC 182.
The weigh-ins for this weekend’s fight card in what is arguably the busiest month for the UFC, holding four major fight cards, take place today in the Marquee Ballroom at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
Jones (20-1) seeks to successfully defend the title which he won from Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in 2011 for the eighth time.
Cormier (15-0) has already beat two former UFC heavyweight champions in Josh Barnett and Frank Mir, however neither were champions at the time. If Cormier wins the title from Jones he could arguably rise to the top of the pound-for-pound best list.
The two did not face each other during their face off after weigh-ins. Instead they turned opposite one another.
