Daniel Cormier once again defends holding towel at weigh-ins

UFC light heavyweight champion [Daniel Cormier stirred up quite a bit of controversy on Friday at the UFC 210 early…

Cormier missed weight on his first attempt, weighing in at 206.2 pounds; 1.2 pounds over the light heavyweight title fight limit of 205 pounds, before then reemerging just over two minutes later and weighing-in at 205 pounds. While Cormier did make weight on the second attempt, he used his hands on the privacy towel to give himself leverage so as to offset his weight and help him in making weight without having to cut the remaining 1.2 pounds. Immediately following the controversial situation, Cormier denied leaning on the towel to help him make weight, maintaining that he was simply attempting to prevent his manhood from being shown.
