B/R's Damon Martin interviewed Daniel Cormier, and discussed the state of the heavyweight division.

Although Cormier is adamant that he will not fight current UFC heavyweight champion and AKA teammate Cain Velasquez, he intends to stay at heavy for the moment.

"I always thought if I were to go down, I would need a lot of time to do it," said Cormier. "I think that still applies, but I would like to still fight. At the end of the day I can't cut massive amounts of weight.  That's well-documented from my problems in the Olympic games.  But I can diet, and when I'm dieting I can still fight.  Can I fight at 205? No.  Because it's too much weight to cut in a short period of time.  But could I fight a heavyweight fight and just be a little lighter? I think so."

Cormier was also adamant that Velasque is firmly at the top of the food chain.

"They're not beating Cain," Cormier said of the heavyweight contenders. "They're not good enough. I'm telling you right now I think they're great, I think Junior dos Santos is great.  I think Junior dos Santos has the best chance of beating Cain, but the rest, they're not beating him.  They're not good enough.  It's about as honest as I can be with you—they're not good enough to beat him."

let's get DC vs Nelson next.  If Nelson wins he gets next HW title shot.  If DC wins he gets next shot at Jones.

When it comes to heavyweights, there's Cain, JDS, and Cormier himself, and then there's everyone else.

what fight have you seen him in where he was in trouble due to his size? or his bodyfat % for that matter... He will lose some of his skill,speed,agility advantanges at 205 that he has over some/most of the heavyweights he would face

I really think Werdum could give him trouble also. Perhaps Overeem but I doubt it. Wouldn't mind Cain reigning for a while though, definitely my favorite guy to watch fight! Phone Post 3.0

too many people overlooking Werdum


Hes good very good one of the very skilled heavys no doubt but would you bet on him beating cain or DC? Both cain or DC open as at least 2-1 favs if not i'd crush that line.

True i'll give you that always a possibility with Werdum but I think Cain bangs him out on the feet and DC taking a UDec unless of course Werdum locks up that sub.

Werdum has advanced leaps and bounds with his striking and his clinch game. He will have no fear of the takedown and has some size on Cain - he could really open up with his striking vs. Cain like other opponents have not been able to, and probably utilize a good kicking game. He has decent cardio and is pretty durable - and off course, deadly off his back. I would still pick Cain over Werdum due to pace and pressure, but Werdum definitely poses some interesting problems for Cain.
