Totally agree with you, plus all that. Barnett lost to KO only once back in 2001. He never lost to a KO or TKO after that! And most of his loses came on the hand of the same guy "Crocop"!

I think he will take out Sergei very easy.

Bigfoot is significantly better than Barnett. Whoever wins Bigfoot/Overeem is winning the tournament. Those are the only two guys that should be moved over to the UFC also. Barnett can't stop taking steroids and is old and not going to get better and would get dominated by guys like Mir, Carwin, and Brock who are never holding the belt again going forward. Fedor is too old and too small to consistently beat real HWs with talent. Those spots should be used to sign young HWs who are learning their craft so that they aren't fighting nothing but fat bums on the local circuits stunting their development.

Guys like Cormier and De La Rosa should be fighting at LHW so they are not included in that.

While I agree that in theory Cormier should be fighting lightheavyweight, medically he should not. The man suffered from kidney failure and almost died the last time he just cut to 211.5. That is six pounds above lightheavyweight so if he can't make that weight without killing himself he definately shouldn't be fighting 205 risking his health.

I am not saying he should cut from what he weighs now he should lose like 20 pounds at least he doesn't need to be carrying around that much weight.

He is maybe 5'10" Cain is 6'1" and carrying extra weight himself his frame isn't built to carry that kind of weight. He would honestly be thick for a LHW cutting from even 215 because of his height. I think his natural athleticism would shine a lot more if he lost that weight also he would be much faster and have better stamina. Sotiropoulos is 5'10" for crying out loud that is WW/LW height. Basically every top HW outside of Cain is 6'3"-6'5".

Yeah, but Cain is just outside of that weight range of cutting down to lightheavyweight. Even if he didn't have that extra weight he would be a heavyweight. Cormier might be able to cut down naturally to lightheavyweight but there is no way he should cut any water weight after his last fiasco.

That really shouldn't happen unless you are cutting an absurd amount of weight. I would have to know how much he was cutting at the time I mean if it was like 15 pounds then yeah he might not want to go to lhw but if it was like 30+ then he just needs to get within a reasonable range.

Well that depends on what time length he was trying to cut fifteen poudns within. If he tried to cut them within a day then that would have that kind've effect. Regardless of whether he tried to cut fifteen or thirty pounds in the longterm he could do it now especially.
