I don’t like the thought of Cormier doing the yo-yo’ing between 264 and 205. 60 pounds up and down will take it’s toll on your brain’s ability to take damage. Especially not at 40 years old.

He came in at 244 I think and probably walks around about 235 when fighting at 205. He just got a little careless with the eating this time, but I don't think this is as bad you're making it sound with a 60 lb difference.

A rumor started by Yoel's agent isnt much of a rumor as much as him trying to get Yoel to skip the line.

That being said, that fight sounds great. Im a fan of Yoel, but he should fight Gus, Oedzemir or even Rockhold again at 205 before any title shot given.

Not to mention high school wrestling season is November-March basically. 

I’d bet he only gets one last fight and it’s probably Brock.

Yoels cock is going be gigantic at 205


I believe that's what OP meant by "absolute unit"...

That would be by far the sickest fight they could possibly put on. Please make it happen

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

I cant watch gus.  Dont wanna see a fighter literally turn his back and run ever

DC painted the end of the road on the Post Fight Show. 

1- Defend LHW Belt Early October - Possibly Romero with Rockhold vs Gus on the same card. Hmmm

2- Defend HW Belt late December (6months from now) vs Brock. Maybe JBJ vs Stipe on the same card. Hmmm

3- Defend and Retire the HW Belt late March vs JBJ retire as the GOAT.

I'll watch Gus vs Overeem for the potential comedic value

Why do we want to keep giving this guy title shots when he can't win, and can't make weight, and has a history with PEDs? 

 

Wtf??

So Jon Jones is coming back and moving to hvwt? Him vs Stipe would be strange

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. 

This would all make a lot more sense if DC didn’t just win the HW strap and a chance to fight the biggest draw the UFC has ever had. And how much he hates the cut.

If Jones comes back he's going to ruin that plan...
