Daniel Cormier's rematch with Anthony Johnsonlooked a lot like their first fight two years ago, only it ended even sooner. "This was my last fight", an emotional Johnson said after the bout.
A farce then unfolded whereby the NY commission and doctors were involved and Weidman was unfit to continue, meaning the victory went to Mousasi via TKO. "Maybe if I decide to come back one day, we can fight at heavyweight or something like that".
