    This is the second fight in a row he was heaving hard in the last round, even looking at the clock. Now, he was still able to do well because Big Country was more tired than he was. Is it me or is Cormier having cardio issues as he drops weight?

    Eh, his kicks looked pretty good in the 3rd round. I don't think he was tired.

    I agree and that fight had more grappling. I would think if he lost weight, his cardio would be even better.

    Yeah but that doesn't explain him breathing hard and looking the clock with 2:30 left in the third.

    Less weight to heave around a lot heavier fighters therefore more energy used, not to mention his output his increased a lot.
