Anthony Johnson Says Goodbye: 'The End of Rumble'

He offered little in the way of reaction as Johnson opted to wrestle Cormier and despite landing a flurry of combinations in the opening stages of the fight, "Rumble" was submitted in the second round.

On the main event, Daniel Cormier defends his light heavyweight crown in a rematch against Anthony "Rumble" Johnson.

Known as a feared knockout artist, Johnson spent the entire fight looking to take down Cormier, a former Olympic wrestler.

UFC 210 was full of controversy and head scratchers in different areas, and Twitter was all over every aspect of the night.

Reports say that as many as 20 have been killed at the camp, while many others remain there under cruel conditions. Senator Ben Cardin said he was "gravely concerned" about threats facing gays in the northern Caucasus region.

Johnson had kept his decision a secret from all but a few of the people closest to him, with not even UFC President Dana White having prior knowledge of the bombshell that he dropped in the Octagon after the fight.

Johnson initiated the wrestling with Cormier, something he was repeatedly advised not to do as we know from the transcribed corner audio that has emerged after the fight.

As for Cormier, he has no shortage of options next and he made that clear as he engaged in some post-fight smack talk with perennial rival Jon Jones and England's own Jimi Manuwa, both of whom were in attendance in Buffalo's KeyBank Centre.

Cormier, with a visibly broken nose after withstanding a powerful kick in the opener, took Johnson to the canvas and sunk in the fight-ending submission. "I trained my butt off to fight Daniel".

"I'm faster, I have better footwork, I have better hands, better stand up". So I was like, you know what, I'm going to hold the towel a little bit myself to make sure that I'm covered. "I just want Saturday to come", said middleweight Chris Weidman.

"I went all out and don't regret anything", he wrote on Facebook.

The arbitration panel found that while Jones was not a drug cheat and the fighter himself claims he ingested the banned substances when taking Cialis, a male enhancement supplement. I've been here the whole time.
