Daniel Cormier has made it clear that there is not a situation or perfect storm that will keep him fighting in the heavyweight division. Win or lose he is expecting to make the cut to 205 pounds.
Inside MMA’s Kenny Rice posed an instance where Cormier’s teammate and current heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez loses to Junior Dos Santos at UFC 166. Would Cormier try to make a run at JDS as champion. The answer? No.
Daniel Cormier faces Roy Nelson Saturday in Houston, the same night as Velasquez defends his title against Dos Santos.
