Along with his many notable accomplishments in the sport, UFC 210’s “towelgate” in 2017 is one controversy that will forever be part of Daniel Cormier’s legacy. And because of UFC 274’s weigh-in fiasco involving Charles Oliveira and the scale, the issue was once again brought up.

In a recent tweet, Tony Ferguson took a jab at Cormier by reposting the video of that incident.

The former UFC double-champ eventually responded.

Ferguson then posted a rebuttal, which Cormier also had an answer to.

Cormier also responded to some fans to explain his side of the story.

And even during his post-UFC 274 media scrumCormier brushed off the “stupid” comments about this controversial moment.

“There was never anything given. I never cheated mean I mean obviously outside of the whole thing where people think I touched that towel. People still believe that which is so stupid. I don’t know how many times I have to tell you, I didn’t touch the towel. ”

BJJ champion and UFC middleweight Rodolfo Vieira even posted a video of how this “trick” worked by moving some of the weight away from the scale and onto the towel. And it’s likely the reason why fighters today are made to keep their hands off the cloth material that covers their bodies during the weigh-ins.

As for Cormier, he will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame this June.
