I wonder if this weight loss will effect his ability to absorb punishment, then again, if he's quicker it would help him dodge some of the big strikes. Either way, it will be interesting to see how he performs.

Im worried that when Cormier beats him he will just put it all back on again, think it made no difference. I also find it funny how people seem to think his gut helped his punch power or his punch resistance...

I train with weights and big gloves all the time, that's not the same as having thirty pounds of gut hanging off your belly though. I realize subcutaneous fat distributes itself all around your body but it never looked like he had a ton of fat on his arms to me...

It's Weidman that KO's people fat, not DC. DC is a teddy bear.

Idk. I'm more inclined to believe that his gut doesn't very well through shirts. But when he takes that shirt off, he'll have nothing but pure beer belly.

Bah, I think too much is made of his weight. He has better cardio than 90% of the HW's and he was sick when he fought Mir so IDK how you can use that against him.

If he's healthy he can go five rounds and take a beating doing it if he must. He's a good fighter that belongs in the top ten IDK why people as so bias.

His cardio sucks There is a reason that in the UFC he has never won a fight that has got out of the first round

Here I thought it might have something to do with fighting a higher level of competition.

Im sure Fabricio Werdum's super high level striking made him gas out after 4 mins.
