UFC 210 will be headlined by a clash of the titans, as Cormier and Johnson once again square off in a light heavyweight championship showdown.Despite the bizarre weigh-ins scare, it should be all systems go by the time the Octagon doors close on Saturday.

Since he got the better of Rumble in their first match-up, DC should be the favorite going into this fight. The former Olympian will have a clear edge in the wrestling and grappling department, however, he should remain weary of Johnson's power.

In the co-main event, former middleweight champ will take on Dutch veteran . The former DREAM and title holder is currently riding a four-fight win streak and should have the momentum going into this important bout against the New York native. However, since Weidman is fighting in his home state, the cheers of the local crowd may help him break his two-fight losing skid.

Rounding out the card will be a women's strawweight showdown between Cynthia Calvillo and Pearl Gonzalez, as well as a welterweight striking showcase featuring Thiago Alves and Patrick Côté. The action will kick off, though, with an exciting lightweight scrap between former champ Will Brooks and ace Charles Oliviera.
