Very interesting turn of events. For Cormier, this is a lose-lose situation. Cummins was a strong prospect given his wrestling background and Cormier is unlikely to blow through him. Thus, if Cormier doesn't look fantastic or manages to lose, his stock drops. Also, Cummins was a training partner of Cormier so it's very unlikely that he will be intimidated (side note: I don't believe that he made Cormier cry in training; those are BS statements usually).
Who cares if DC is fast tracked to a fight, Jones doesnt think he has a chance, you claim he doesnt have a chance, what is everyone so worried about? You cant blame DC for Evans injury.
UFC Quick Quote: If Jon Jones moves up to heavyweight, he gets beat up by Cain Velasquez
"If he (Jones) wants to go up to heavyweight, then he can go up there and get beat up by Cain. That's the only thing that's going to happen. There will never be a two belt type of thing because I don't think any of these guys will beat Velasquez."
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has flirted with the idea of eventually moving up to heavyweight once he feels his work in the 205-pound division is done. Should that be the case, then a "super fight" against a big name like division champion Cain Velasquez (sorry, Chris Weidman) is what "Bones" has in his sights. Of course, before an eventual jump in weight classes goes down, Daniel Cormier would love nothing more than to dethrone "Bones" as the ruler of the light heavyweight division. A fight "DC" is more than confident he can win.
UFC 170's Pat Cummins Served Jail Time for Burglary
Pat Cummins, Daniel Cormier's new opponent in UFC 170's light heavyweight co-main event, served jail time for a burglary conviction.
Just today, the UFC's Dana White revealed that Pat Cummins will replace an injured Rashad Evans in the co-main event of UFC 170 in a fight against undefeated two-time Olympian Daniel Cormier. Unfortunately, as soon as the UFC called him up into the big time, the former Penn State wrestler probably knew that MMA media would immediately report on his criminal history. In 2011, Pat Cummins served eight months in jail for burglarizing some fraternity houses in State College, Pennsylvania back in 2008.
Convicted with Cummins was former Penn State wrestling teammate and MMA fighter Eric Bradley. While the intricacies of what they did remain unclear, and they maintain that their acts amount to little more than a prank, a judge found that what they did worthy of jail time and probation.

I don't think this is going to be an easy fight. This guy is and up and comer, but he is well rounded. This is a lose-lose situation for Cormier.
