Cormier: Next fight my last at heavyweight

Friday, June 07, 2013

Daniel Cormer won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix and successfully made his UFC debut at heavyweight, defeating Frank Mir my decision. Cormier had previously stated he was considering a move to light heavyweight, but it seems now the decision is made:

“This is it, my next fight will be my last at heavyweight,” Cormier told ESPN.com. “I want to try to fight a little lighter this time, and by the end of this year or early next year, I will fight my first fight at 205 pounds.

“I’ve gotten my plan together, and I’m tackling it head-on so I will be able to [cut weight] in the right way and feel pretty good competing. It’s obviously going to be a process and not an easy process, but I’m willing to take that challenge. I want to be champion.”
