My understanding is Cormier's body doesn't like the huge water weight cut before the fight. So he needs to actually get his body down closer to that weight to save himself the huge cut before the fight.
Yea, exactly. Given Cormiers life threatening issues in the past with drastic weigh cuts, it has to be guaranteed that his camp and coaches at AKA will have him endure a long, gradual and healthy cut down to 205, rather than just dangerously getting rid of water a few day before a fight.
