It’s been a whirlwind week for Daniel Cormier, MMA fans, and everyone involved with UFC 200. With just 48 hours until weigh-ins, Jon Jones was pulled from the card after an anti-doping violation, and Cormier was left without a fight on the UFC’s biggest card in history. In stepped The Spider, Anderson Silva, who would take the fight against the light heavyweight champion and one of the pound for pound best in the business at 198.5 pounds, less than two months after gallbladder surgery. The collective MMA world was blown away. And it was good.
Unfortunately for MMA fans, Cormier embraced the grind and we had to watch a somewhat boring fight. It happens!
