Nope. Cormier is not the champion, nor will he ever be. AT HW, Cain's champ and if he stays healthy, he'll be champ for a very long time. So..., HW is out of the picture. LHW, Cormier can't beat Bones. He offers nothing that Bones hasn't already decimated. Plus, can Cormier make that cut and keep his athleticism? Can Cormier keep his gas tank? Can he keep the strength despite losing 40 lbs? Can he match the speed of the naturally smaller athletes? I don't see Cormier being dominant at 205. Not bad mouthing Cormier, but..., he has more going against him being champ than for. Cormier is the prototype fighter for the UFC. Great wrestler with decent stand up. Thing is, that describes 75% of the mid to low tier fighters in the UFC. Especially the ones with no hopes of ever challenging for the title. Again, not talking shit on Cormier, I mean it wouldn't be a surprise if he became an elite UFC fighter. But..., it wouldn't be shocking if he fades into obscurity either.
