He weighed in at 205 pounds, making his championship bout with Jon Jones at UFC 214 official.
And he's fighting tonight, at least in part, for you. He added though that before looking that far, Jones may want to set his head straight and worry about Cormier before looking beyond.
The time for the talk is over.
Cormier beat Silva by unanimous decision with the help of a wresting-heavy strategy.
Cormier had never lost in the cage.
Cormier insists it will ultimately be him, not Jones, that gets to write the final chapter of this particular narrative.
The 30-year-old, who is 22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC, has continued to tease his opponent in recent weeks, including this Instagram post last week that mocked Cormier's infamous towel grab during the UFC 210 weigh-in. The title picture recently has involved just four men: Jones, Cormier, Alexander Gustafsson and recently retired knockout artist Anthony "Rumble" Johnson.
"If he could just swallow that", Jones said, "and say, 'You know what, I'm the baddest mother f*cker outside of Jon Jones, then I can go to sleep at night".
"I feel awesome. I've missed it a lot".
Some suggest that if Jon Jones regains his belt, he could potentially fight Lesnar in what would be one of the biggest fights in MMA history. "I just took it all for granted". This time, he thinks he can do even more. "But, he didn't work for you guys". Champions do continue improving, of course, but there's something to be said of a fighter who's tasted defeat and officially dedicating their lives on never tasting it again.
Jones has only had one competitive fight since beating Cormier, and that was a less-than inspiring performance against OSP.

But the two were separated when Kaur swept Harley straight to Tammy Beaumont at deep backward square to end a stand of 95. There's still one game to go and if we put a flawless performance in then, I'll be a very happy captain", Knight said.

At one point, he lived alone in a sparse one-bedroom apartment, where he had a box of Lego blocks for his son, the documents said. However, he could be forced to give a statement if there's a garrity - where an employee can be ordered to give a statement.
We must preface this by saying that this super-fight is a long way off but both parties are interested in it, so that's a start.
"Love the booking of the SummerSlam main event featuring a four-way with Lesnar, Reigns, Strowman, and Joe". I also realize now how you live your life outside the sport is important to your legacy, and I'm trying hard to do things right from here on out. "Tyler's a carb guy, I'm a carb guy so we clicked and it worked flawless".
If he does, he stands a huge chance of another defence against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling specialist Maia. With a victory, he arguably goes down as one of the best of all time. However, Jones gave much better than he got and wore Cormier down for an easy decision.
Records are nice, Maia says, but they'll be broken one day. Lawler has been inactive since losing his title to Woodley and that layoff will be two days short of a year by the time he faces Cerrone.
He said to me, 'I'm an old man now, and Daniel had to take me down round after round because I felt fear coming off of him.
The champ expects Maia to attack early and often before they start sweating, making grips more slippery and submissions more hard.
Evinger waited for a UFC contract. He won the title fairly, and when called upon, fought and won. "I know he knows that in his heart and I'm sure he'd like to retire with a win over me under his belt".
The UFC stripped Germaine de Randamie of the UFC featherweight title when she refused to defend it against Cristiane Justino.
But there is something he can do to try and get them to change their minds: winning big in his first fight back.
Evinger is probably good enough to compete in the UFC but Cyborg's striking will probably be too much. "I think ultimately it's a superfight".
