Daniel Cormier Wants Spot On Fox Sports 1


Daniel Cormier is already looking for another fight in the octagon. He last competed against Frank Mir at UFC on Fox 7 in San Jose. Cormier is looking to compete with the best in the heavyweight division before making the transition to the light heavyweight division.

Daniel Cormier recently discussed his desire to compete on the Boston card for August 17th 2013 last saturday night.

“I want to fight on the first card on FOX Sports 1 in Boston on Aug. 17,” he declared during Fuel TV’s UFC on FX 8 post-fight coverage. “And I hope my man Chael Sonnen is fighting Wanderlei Silva next to me. Put us on the card, boss!”

Dana White stated that he wants to have a blockbuster card for the first UFC on Fox Sports 1. If Joe Silva is able to get Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva to headline the event, having Daniel Cormier versus any top heavyweight would make a solid co-main event.

He also discussed his thoughts on making the cut to light heavyweight and how he plans to drop down to 205 lbs.

“I always thought if I were to go down I would need a lot of time to do it.  I think that still applies, but I would like to still fight. At the end of the day I can’t cut massive amounts of weight.  That’s well documented from my problems in the Olympic games.  But I can diet, and when I’m dieting I can still fight.  Can I fight at 205? No.  Because it’s too much weight to cut in a short period of time.  But could I fight a heavyweight fight and just be a little lighter? I think so.”

Daniel Cormier has plenty of options and opportunities. Let’s see if he’s able to compete with one of the elite August 17th in Boston.
