DC talking about not going back to heavyweight
"When I made that decision [fighting at heavyweight], I was fine fighting guys those size," Cormier said at a Monday media event promoting his UFC 192 fight against Alexander Gustafsson. "Now I'm not fine with it, I'm fighting in this division against guys who are more my size. When I grab these dudes, compared to the other guys, the difference is unbelievable. It's unbelievable how much smaller they are."
Cormier's resume at 265 includes victories over the likes of "Bigfoot" Silva, Josh Barnett,Frank Mir, and Roy Nelson. But the champ says as he looks back, he has a hard time believing he event competed in the division in the first place.
"I'm scared of Josh Barnett," Cormier said. "I'm scared of every one of them. I walk past them and I'm like, ‘that dude is huge.' Andrei Arlovski is massive. What in the world would I have done if I had to fight him? He's thick, big, and tall. I've trained with him. I'm looking at him and going, dude, did I shrink or are these dudes that much bigger than me?"

I'm sure this girl could make way more paper being a DNB. There's no way you can be could at fighting if you're built like that.

Sage Northcutt looks like a comic book character. Hope the kid is next up. Younger Stephen Thompson type
It really was a bad move to go to WW. If he stayed at LW it wouldn't have been that much better though
LW became just a big a shark tank as WW, especially when they absorbed the WEC and Strikeforce
