    I guess with Cain winning, then Cormier will move to LHW. I believe he said he would if Cain became HW champ again. I guess we will see after Strikeforce folds next month.

    He said he wants Mir as his first UFC fight no matter what.

    I would love to see him face Jones at LHW, but I seriously fear for his health if he tries. He better not try to cut a ton of weight. He better seriously dedicate himself to dieting and conditioning and shed that "Fedor weight".

    I didnt know that. I was just thinking that if he wont fight Cain, then he would want to move to LHW sooner than later. I wouldnt mind seeing him fight Mir though. If he touched Franks chin, It would probably be nighty night for him. Mirs chin disappears more and more every fight.

    He wants Mir because he was excited for that fight. He also seemed to still be not thrilled about LHW.
