Daniel Cormier knows Frank Mir is going to be the ultimate challenge in his UFC debut, as Mir is a former two-time heavyweight champion.
Regardless of that, Cormier was still forced to answer a question about a potential weight change in the future. “DC’s” training partner, Cain Velasquez, is the current UFC heavyweight champion. The two have stated several times they will not fight each other.
“I have such an important fight on my hands,” said Cormier, during a conference call Tuesday to help promote April 20’s UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Melendez card. “I have strayed away from that (thought) process about 205 pounds. I have the toughest fight in my career in two weeks and I can’t focus on that right now.”
Cormier did confirm that, by saying in the past he would consider a drop to light heavyweight, that he is “confident I can make the weight. But my sole thoughts are on Frank Mir right now.”
