Jesus fucking Christ. 205 lb Yoel is going to be massive. Absolute unit.

I know he says he will, but I doubt DC goes down to 205 again.

Cormier/Romero would be an amazing fight but should Romero get a title shot right away? I think he should fight Gustaffson and the winner gets Cormier..

Fuck Cormier/Brock

What about Rockhold?  I want to see him get knocked out at 205 pounds.

Indeed, I'd love to see him actually fight Gus. I think Gus would absolutely dominate him.

What a retarded rumour. Yoel is coming off a loss and the Brock matchup is 10x bigger.

Brock ain't fighting for at least another 6 months. If Brock is DC's next opponent, he will have vacated the LHW title, before that.

True but DC is not dropping down to LHW in the meantime

Makes no sense

I’ve been thinking about this fight for a while and it actually does make sense in my opinion. 

Yoel has had trouble making weight, so moving up isn’t a stretch. 

Hes been in title contention for a while at 185 so if he did move up, deserves someone in the top 3 at least or a big fight. 

Yoel is in the late stages of his career and let’s be honest, may not have another run in him. Him against DC could be a marketable matchup as two former Olympic medalists, and the style matchup is exciting.

^I should add this is the most compelling fight at 205. Not interested in Gus or anyone else there at this point.

IDK why people keep talking about Yoel being a good draw vs Cormier when he's not a good draw at all. We (the hardcores) get excited for him, and he has the look that casuals usually like, but no average person on the street has ever heard of him.

Didn't DC and Yoel wrestle each other at least once in international competition?

This fight gets me excited. Two explosive freak athletes inside the cage, plus DC is never in a boring fight. 

Yes please

Cormier said he was going to retire by March 2019.  If so, that has him possibly fighting Yoel at LHW, Brock at HW and then what?

I don't think this fights happening. No way. As said above, Yoel just lost. For that he earns a title shot? If Yoel could draw crouds like Lesnar, then I would believe it. He can't.
