Actually Sanderson beat Romero at the 2004 Olympic Games, 3-2.

Romero beat Sanderson in overtime at the 2003 Titan Games, 3-2. (Sanderson was leading at the end of regulation, 2-1; however, that year the rules called for at least 3 points to be scored for a win, so the match went into overtime)

Romero beat Sanderson in overtime at the 2003 Pan Am Games, 3-2.


None of those matches were a domination.
Dominated, domination are so misused and overused on this forum.

Cormier is not going down to MW, but say he did, Romero better fix his habit of letting guys get in on his legs otherwise Cormier will be taking him down.

Future LHW champion. Looking lean and mean. Go Cormier

I noticed that you dropped the half of the quote comparing his size to that of the current ww roster. At 213lbs he still has around 20% body fat. He could easily make WW but I doubt he will as it would take a lot of caloric discipline and if he had that he wouldn't have gotten obese as he was in the first place.
On what authority is that 20% body fat figure based?
Cormier wasn't even that light as a high school kid. (summer between sophomore & junior years he competed in the 181.5lbs cadet division).

Even 185lbs would be very questionable. Even though the weigh-in procedure & frequency to make the weight is different than wrestling, he hasn't been that light in 13 years and he has put on some muscle mass since then.

And why would he want to go through what is needed to make the 185 limit?

Indeed. Him dropping to 185lbs doesn't really make that much sense from a physiological stand point, and neither does it make sense in the financial aspect: Cormier has invested a lot of time and media attention into a potential title fight with Jones. Making it a reality would probably be the biggest available source of money for him at this point, especially since he obviously thinks he'll win that fight, too.

Dan was 213 and still fat at LHW before last fight. Rory was 200lb and lean as fuck (as always) before the BJ fight. You do the maths.

Great fighter and athlete but will never have the career he should have because of his lack of dietary discipline.
"career he should have?" He's fighting at harder weight classes and hasn't lost a fight. Hasn't even lost a fuckin' round. Yeah his career sucks man, he should be ashamed because Contempt gave him this wisdom!
