Daniel Cormier Weight Watch: ‘DC’ Commits to Dropping to Light Heavyweight, Wants Immediate Title Shot

(Who needs a tale-of-the-tape when we have the magic of Photoshop?)

He’s gone back and forth in the past, suggested it without committing to it but now UFC heavyweight contender and former Olympic wrestler Daniel Cormier has said that he will most certainly drop down to light heavyweight. That is, after he whoops up on Roy Nelson at UFC 166.

After that, Cormier says he’ll demand an immediate title shot against the winner of Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson, which UFC President Dana White has implied he deserves. Cormier, who stays chubby all year round and had a near-death experience cutting weight as a wrestler before his second Olympic games in 2008, “is now confident he can easily make the weight cut,” according to MMA Fighting.

Also, if he beats Nelson, “Cormier said that after the fight he will publicly ask the UFC in the cage to “cut the line,” MMA Fighting reports.

Of course, all these well-laid plans can only mean one thing — Cormier is going to get smashed by Nelson. Sad, because we were picking D.C. before all this.

If Cormier somehow manages to survive the “looking past your current opponent” curse, do you think there’s a more deserving light heavyweight out there, nation? We can’t really think of a more compelling match up with champion Jon Jones at this point. All reasonable suggestions will be considered.

Bad matchup for DC IMO. Nelson by KO.

They've got to build Glover's brand with the masses a little longer. If it don't make dollars it don't make sense.

@Danomite: Couldn't agree with you more, I think Teixiera should've got the shot before Sonnen for that matter.
On an unrelated note: I think it's just aces how you guys like to invite us to "remind us if we've missed anything", or "let us know what you think", etc. Ya, 'cause WITHOUT the invite, we'd probably just read the article and move on.

he is way to hyped...he is good and maybe a champ one day but look at his last fight just as an example....he grinded out a dection with mir who just gets destroyed by people at the championship level nowadays...he better kill roy in everyway shape and form for me to believe he even has a remote chance at jones...not hating cause I think DC is a great guy just being real

So Cormier gets a title shot in a division he hasn't competeted in after beating two guys who were both coming off losses? How about Glover Teixiera?

The winner of Nelson vs Cormier gets to wear the BK crown. The loser has to eat at Subway for a month.
