VIDEO: Daniel Cormier misses weight, then makes weight….by holding the towel?

During Friday’s UFC 210 official weigh-ins, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier weighed in 1.2 pounds over the 205-pound limit for light heavyweight championship fights. Cormier, who is scheduled to defend his belt on Saturday against top contender Anthony Johnson, was then given another chance to weigh-in just a little over two minutes after the initial time he hit the scale.

On his second try, the former Olympic wrestler registered 205 pounds, but was seen holding down the towel used to cover his body, as he had stripped down before stepping on the scale. Many claim this to be an old wrestling trick used to weigh less on the scale. What are your thoughts?
