Nevertheless, her absence till the final minute had Daniel Cormier questioning the standard of her minimize.

Throughout the official UFC weigh-in present, he stated:

“To the minute. Remaining minute. Perhaps the champ is simply enjoying a recreation, like ‘Hey guys, you gonna watch for me. It is my present, you are going to watch for me.’ I dunno, she’s a half pound below weight. When you’re a half pound below weight you could possibly have did that forty-five minutes in the past. But when she’s not … she did not look that dangerous, but when she’s not, now she’s given Amanda [Nunes] a two hour head begin.”
