The lead-up to the main event had been unusually quiet for two of the more bombastic talkers in the UFC, but Wednesday’s UFC 202 pre-fight press conference changed all that.

Anthony Johnson and Glover Teixeira also easily made weight for their co-main event bout. The highly ranked light heavyweights are battling for a likely shot at champion Daniel Cormier.
