Daniel Cormier Planning To Be At 205 Pounds By Years End

Daniel Cormier seeks light heavyweight in his future, as the UFC heavyweight contender told fans Friday during a Q&A session in Las Vegas.

Cormier, who won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix and claimed a win over Frank Mir in his Octagon debut, has talked about moving down to 205 pounds since teammate Cain Velasquez became heavyweight champion.

In the meantime, “DC” has made sure to keep UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones in his vision, calling out “Bones” numerous times. The two have had several Twitter exchanges recently.

“I haven’t started cutting weight yet, but we’ll fight at 220 tomorrow if he wants,” Cormier said. “He can walk in off the street and we’ll fight at any weight.”

Cormier added that he wouldn’t mind facing the winner of an upcoming fight between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum, as well.
