The two top fighters have contrasting styles. He has found consistent success in the cage as well, entering UFC 210 with a 12-1 record in the cage over the last five years. His suspension ends July 6. When you get your s**t together and you're ready to fight, I'll be ready for you. While "Rumble" did take Cormier down for a split second, Cormier just hung out and had Johnson in a front guillotine for a good part of the round.

Cormier controlled Johnson in the clinch position and peppered him with short punches and elbows.

Johnson had some success too as he took down the former Olympian but it was a thudding roundhouse kick that was the most telling blow of the entire fight as he smashed Cormier's nose.

It was more of the same in the second round.

It also exposed a corporate culture in which airlines - and United in particular - have long "bullied" passengers, he said. Facing public outrage, United finally apologized and promised that this kind of incidents would never happen again.

Light-heavyweight champion Cormier (19-1) sent Johnson (22-6) into retirement with a rear-naked choke in the second round of their title fight in Buffalo, New York, an identical finish to their first fight previous year.

Elsewhere on the card, Gegard Mousasi earned a controversial TKO victory against Chris Weidman, as there were doubts over whether at least one of the victor's knee strikes were legal.

"We were OK giving up the first round. Rumble has that big burst and then he kind of panics".

"But now I'm going to fly to Las Vegas and then on to NY so I'll be there to throw a cat among the pigeons. He has so much more to offer this sport".

Even so, over 40 companies have pulled their advertisements from The O'Reilly Factor , according to Fortune Magazine. You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. "This is not blowing over".

Cormier made his light heavyweight debut against Patrick Cummins at UFC 170 after demolishing all comers in the heavyweight division.

The weigh-in controversy took center stage in the 24 hours leading up to the fight.

"I felt great", he said. After stuffing yet another Johnson takedown attempt, Cormier wrestled him back down to the canvas and took Johnson's back easily. His nemesis Jon Jones was also in the crowd but DC dismissed the suspended former champion and said: 'You need to get your academics in order before you step back into the classroom'. He won the fight. "He's the best pound-for-pound fighter of all time and the chance to fight him would be something that would be impossible to turn down".

"To fall back so far because of a damn sex pill, and to have people kind of assume your life isn't together", Jones said.

Further, he's been the best fourth quarter scorer in the league, providing important points down the stretch of most games. Stevens said the sight gave him a bit of a scare. "It says 1-8 but I think it's going to be a little tougher than that".

Three months from completing a yearlong doping ban, Jones said Friday he is focusing exclusively on reclaiming the light heavyweight title he's lost twice due to suspensions.
