UFC 210 Odds For Saturday Pay-Per-View – The UFC is back this Saturday after a few down weeks with UFC 210. The pay-per-view airs from Buffalo, New York and features five fights, including UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier’s latest title defense as he faces rival Anthony Johnson.
Well, this is as good as it is going to get in the UFC’s 205 pound division while former champion Jon Jones remains on the shelf with personal problems. Besides Jones, Cormier had distinguished himself as the class of the division. The former wrestler fought his early career as a heavyweight and he at first appeared tentative about moving down in weight, but he seems to have overcome all weight cutting issues. He famously did not compete at the 2008 Olympic games due to complications around weight cutting, so Cormier has operated under a lot of scrutiny every time he gets on the scales. Back in May of 2015 he stopped Anthony Johnson in the third round for what may be the biggest win of Cormier’s career.
But what Johnson has done since then has been nothing short of incredible. He has gone 3-0 since then, fighting just under a total of 2 minutes and 20 seconds in all three fights as he waxed Glver Teixeira, Jimmy Manuwa and Ryan Bader. Johnson is well remembered for his first UFC run where he competed as a welterweight. He was cut from the roster due to repeated issues making weight and he signed a contract with the World Series of Fighting. He got adjusted to light heavyweight and also competed as a heavyweight and the lone loss he has had in his last thirteen fights has come at the hands of Cormier.
Th co-feature comes at middleweight as former champion Chris Weidman attempts to snap a two fight losing streak as he faces Gegard Mousasi. Mousasi is on a four fight winning streak that has also seen him score three knock outs in a row. Weidman is the man who ended the title reign of the great Anderson Silva, and when he was asked to do it again, he defeated Silva a second time. His back to back losses have come to Yoel Romero and Luke Rockhold and he fought well in those fights. One issue for Weidman is that he now has a suspect chin, having been stopped two fights in a row. Mousasi has a ton of fights on his resume and he has fought at a remarkably high level throughout his career. He started his UFC run fighting inconsistently but he is looking at a potential title shot with a win here over Weidman.
