Fitch: Velasquez would beat Cormier
Cain Velasquez is the most dominant heavyweight in the UFC and the current champion. Daniel Cormier is one of the heavyweight division's fastest rising stars, but as a teammate of Velasquez, has opted to move to the light heavyweight division. However, should the two ever meet in the Octagon, teammate Jon Fitch believes he knows who he would favor:
"[Cormier] is not a true heavyweight. He might be 225, 230 soaking wet. He's not a heavyweight. He's so good as an athlete and a fighter that he can get away with beating heavyweights up, but he's not a true heavyweight. Just based on size, you have two guys who are equally skilled, equal work ethic, equal punching power, equal everything, you're going to put your money on the guy who weighs more."
