Or are you talking how Roy was taken down by Mir? You think Mir has any chance at all of taking DC down?
A lot of people say Nelson should cut down to 205. Cormier is smaller and has less reach than Nelson does.
Cormier said the reason he didn't medal in the olympics is he was too big and couldn't control his weight.
In a sense, Cormier could be one of those guys never overcomes a weight issue to compete at his full potential.
As good as Cormier is he could run into a wall the way Frankie Edgar and others have.
Where he just can't get inside on guys or overcome that reach / height deficit.
