Weight Class:

What to do with Daniel Cormier? That would be a lively heavyweight discussion thread because the Olympic wrestler is unbeaten at heavyweight yet is being directed to shed 30 pounds and make the light heavyweight limit. It's hard to say for sure whether or not that's a positive for Cormier. His speed advantage at heavyweight would be greatly diminished, plus the perils of a weight cut would be at the forefront. But something's gotta give, because Cormier is too competitive to be satisfied with anything less than everything he can to earn a title bout. Meanwhile, for the first time in forever, Frank Mir isn't a ranked heavyweight anymore. This is a period of reshuffling in the heavyweight division, and Mir is the first of what looks like several casualties bound to happen along the way.
