Mike Dolce claims 'DC' would be stronger, faster, and more durable at middleweight
While "DC" has his sights set on a division title shot against the winner of Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson, who collide at UFC 178 this September, UFC F.I.T. coach and weight-cutting guru Mike Dolce told MMA Junkie he could get the Olympian down even further, with incredible results.

"He would gain strength, he would gain speed, and he would gain durability. Look at the photos of him when he weighed in at 205 (pounds). Look at that body, and you can see he's not nearly as ripped as he could be. Where you don't see the definition, all that is additional weight that's non-functional. So we can get rid of that, get him very close, and that's even before the dehydration sets in."

At 5'11" Cormier is shorter than the entire top five of the middleweight division.
