Cormier V Cigano, now THAT is a fight I'd like to see. It may well turn out to be the fight we all thought Cigano V Cain was going to be.

Honestly I think yes. I don't see why loosing the fat would change him ?

It's not like the thought can't have crossed his or his managements mind. He's not THAT fat. He's a barrel of a man and any excess fat appears to be more than it is because of his body shape. His kidneys have failed in the past due to making weight and that cost him a place at the Olympics. If he felt he could get to 205 comfortably I'm sure he would. He was 238 for the Barnett fight so he'd have to lose 33lbs. That is A LOT of fat, fat that I just don't think he has. DC is one of those guys that is naturally a 'catchweight' fighter, as in he is too big for LHW but on the small side for HW. This happens now and then with so few weight classes in MMA.
