Question about Cormier fight..

Were there no other guy's that could have took the fight besides fucking Patrick "Coffee Man" Cummins? Guy is a 4-0 against some guys that don't really count for anything..I'm guessing by now you can say you made some pro ufc fighter cry before and you can get right in the UFC no problem.

A lot of the top 205ers are scheduled already. I'm guessing a lot of guys don't want to fight Cormier on short notice also.

No established fighter is gonna fight Cormier on short notice. Too much to lose. Cummins hass everything to gain and nothing to lose, so of course he'll fight. And the fact that they trained/wrestled before adds a bit of history and makes it seem like Cummins might have a chance.

Wouldn't be fair to anyone to plug any super talented fighter in that much short notice.

No top-10 LHW or HW is fighting Cormier with 2 weeks notice.

This is a no-lose situation for Cummins: he's not expected to beat Cormier, yet he's now in the UFC's good graces by taking the fight on short notice, guaranteeing him at least one more fight there. And the added publicity he created by calling out Cormier puts more money in his pocket.

Anthony Perosh was available. He would make just as much sense.

But they could promote this fight better with the history between them two. I doubt Perosh would take the fight tho.
