It doesnt make sense at HW, I think they will fight since one of the two will be waiting on the other one or one of them will play back fiddle to the fighter who holds the belt.

Say Cain loses and cormier becomes champion, is Cain going to wait around for Cormier to lose. Its a musical chairs situation that is going to make for some animosity between Cain and Cormier in possible future.

Cormer should just drop down or fight Cain if he wants any glory. If Cain keeps improving mores so then the division I dont see him losing the belt at HW for a good two years.

why? because he's a wrestler and probably can cut 40lbs in a few weeks if he had to. so why start cutting weight now, when there are no real matches set for him at either weight? especially when Jones is out for a while.

Just turned 34, sooner the better- and if it takes a while (kidney etc) do it now and people may forget about his boring Mir fight. But you can make more money as a marketable HW (Olympian, undefeated, the champs coach etc) than having Jones kick your ass and mill about fighting the top few LHWs over and over.

Cain's not going anywhere. He will have the belt for a long time. So DC needs to stop eating twinkies.
