Dude, Iím a wrestler. Iím the best wrestler in MMA. Wrestling IS, was and always has been the most dominate form of mix martial art on the planet. Thatís all there is to it. We all know it, some people want to fight it, some people want doubt it but wresters rule the MMA world. -
Truth be told I wish him and Jones would just fight already instead of making this match up.
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.
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.
