Whenever there is a plan it always gets ruined. Mir because it ruins everyones plan.

I don't think that actually ruins any plans though. It pretty much paves the way for Cormier to drop down to LHW and have the fight everyone's been waiting for since the Barnett fight against JBJ.

Cormier is physically built so much like Roy Nelson.

I'm not sure he'll be able to overcome those height and reach deficiencies any better than Nelson did.

What does this mean?

So did he handle his measurables well vs. the 260lb Barnett? Or how about vs. the 6'4 Bigfoot who cuts to 265lbs? Did he not handle those guys who are bigger than Mir?

Or are you talking how Roy was taken down by Mir? You think Mir has any chance at all of taking DC down?

DW wants to force a fight between Cain and DC. Also, I'll believe DC at 205 when I see it.

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.

I understand all of this, although Cain isn't a big HW by any means and is the champ. And DC has proven he can handle HUGE HWs.

I just thought your Nelson comparison was in regards to how Nelson did vs. Mir. I thought you were saying because of his limited measurables, DC should watch out vs. Mir. But I guess that isn't what you meant.

If he can go to 205 I think he will.
