    Well he fought a superior fighter, a much larger fighter, and he's getting pretty old.

    You can't really tell off this performance, so I wish him luck going forward.

    He got punched pretty hard in the body while on the ground. Mix that with how heavy Cormier is and you have your fatigue.

    He was off it against Rashad too. He weighed 204

    He was on it against Shogun. He was 202. He's just getting old. His agility is so far below what it was in Pride.

    He's definitely worse without TRT, but he would have lost even if it had been allowed. Cormier is a very good fighter.


    I don't know why he doesn't have more diehard fans.

    Cormier is significantly larger than Dan Henderson.

    I doubt the TRT, or lack thereof, made a difference in his weight. I don't think he's ever cut weight for LHW. He was chugging water before the weigh ins for the Fedor fight and still only came in at 206.

    Even 2 years ago I would of picked Cormier, he's that good. TRT Hasn't helped Dan, he gasses in almost every fight.

    Looked like the Shields fight, if Shields also weighed 30 pounds more and finished Hendo.
