Daniel Cormier: I fight at Heavyweight, because guys at 205 are betterPosted on August 23, 2010, 05:00 AM by Anton Gurevich
It's better for me not to cut weight. But with some changes in my diet, it would be pretty simple. When I'm training normally at the gym, I weight around 230, 232 pounds. There's no reason for me to cut that weight. And to be totally honest with you, guys are better at 205. They're faster. These are just big lumbering guys. So hopefully when my skill set allows me to fight at that weight class, and if my management thinks I should go down – that's what I'll do.
Speaking to MMAFighting's Ariel Helwani, Daniel Cormier gave a honest answer on why he is not fighting at what seems his natural weight class. Although Cormier weighed a HW-worthy 249 pounds for his bout against Jason Riley, but at 5 ft 10.5 in tall he's definitely undersized for a Heavyweight. So what do you think LowKick'ers, what should be Daniel Cormier's permanent weight class?
