That makes alot of sense, but if Cormier's doing a camp to prep for say Napao, that's a helluva lot different than a Barry or Hunt.
Unless they've told Cormier privately who he's fighting, it feels as though they're dragging him along.
Given that Mitrione turned the fight down, it would appear to me that ZUFFA is going pretty far down on the depth chart in finding a replacement for Mir.
I personally think Gonzaga is a massive sleeper to put up against Cormier, his jits is so good, he's got power in his hands, he's a big HW who has stated he's going to focus his game on grappling, which is scary.
