Watch highlights from the UFC 210 main event title bout between Cormier and Rumble.

The light heavyweight title rematch at UFC 210 between Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson went somewhat similar to their first encounter. Rumble came out strong, but instead of Cormier just surviving, Johnson uncharacteristically tried to wrestle the wrestler. He was winning on the outside, then decided to play Cormier’s game and it cost him the fight.

Apart from the finish, Rumble shocked the world by retiring as well, while still in his athletic prime.
