I can't see how he can get all the way down to 205 and still be just as strong and effective, and just as confident in his mind that he's physically where he should be.

Jones has really only a few names left in the LHW division left. Rooting for Hendo

Well his wrestling isn't all simply brute strength. There is a lot of technique there that he can bring down to LHW. His punching power may suffer, but he may bring that with him as well. It's hard to say until we see him make the switch.

All of this is true, especially the bolded, but I personally am not generally a big fan of fighters killing themselves to make the lightest possible weight. I'm not a fighter, but I can only assume you'd fight better when you feel healthy and at your strongest. When you're not feeling weakened by the cut and worried about potential cardio issues and such. I don't know the man, but I can't see how Cormier would be comfortable operating at 205, and confidence means a lot in a fight.
