    Given that Werdum is available after the Big Nog fight and it is the most logical pairing of the two top HW contenders, a matchup with Nelson feels very much like a holding pattern fight for Cormier, while he tests the waters at making a healthy 205 and continues to drop weight. This fight isn't as big of a risk for Cormier and ZUFFA doesn't run the risk of losing a top title contender in Werdum to a fighter who won't fight the champ and is maybe going to 205.

    If Cormier fights at HW and it isn't Werdum, I think it is a very telling sign as to where he is headed.

    Truth be told I wish him and Jones would just fight already instead of making this match up.
    Honestly, I have no idea; I just have been told it is. I'm both white and from an area where I heard the n-word pretty regularly but never heard a white person insult a black person by calling them an uncle Tom. That said, the powers that be tell me it's pretty fucked up to do that.

    And I'm with you on the other two points. Cormier is a favorite for sure but no fight is a gimme. And I'm looking forward to the Cormier/Jones fight. But I think Cormier needs to win a high level fight at LHW first.

That's how Roy goaded Cormier into this fight.

    He has been losing weight. The guy has kidney issues so he has to take the weight cut slow. Between his last Strikeforce fight and the Mir fight he lost 20 pounds. He will probably weigh in at 220 or so for this fight when it happens.

    This.

    Dana loves Koscheck due to his short notice fights and TUF heritage. I think Kos would not be cut until 4 losses in a row.

    this is leaa to do about top5 or top 10 fighters. this has to do with a beef between the 2 of them and DC wants to shut ol' mullethead up. Im not parital to this fight so as long as one of the fighters goes to sleep and im not bored to death let them settle their shit in the cage.

    Dana has had no problems with Koscheck. The reason Koscheck received his past two fights was because of ranking and name value.

    It is Koscheck's own doing that he lost to a fighter in Lawler that was 3-5 in his last 8.

    Roy was definitely ranked in the top 10 prior to the loss to Stipe. Roy didn't talk his way into a fight, Cormier did. Daniel has been relentless trying to get this fight, not Roy. Daniel has talked non stop about fighting Roy.

    I wouldn't laugh but it's very possible. Cormier could always get caught with that big shot. He doesn't have a stick-and-move style nor does he have the experience. It's unclear how he'll react to eating a big punch if it happens.

    Cormier is a sizable favorite IMO but any given day and all.
