Cormier Not Willing To Face Gustafsson Overseas, Demands U.S. Venue For 205 Debut

“I have no problem fighting Alexander Gustafsson, not at all. The one thing I’m concerned about, being that it’s going to be my first time down at 205, I know that Gustafsson is going to fight in Europe somewhere. Whether it’s Sweden or somewhere else in Europe, I don’t want to be making my first weight cut down to 205 overseas. I know what I’m going to need, I want to find saunas here in the United States and all the food that I’m comfortable with in order to make the weight.”

While on UFC Tonight, Daniel Cormier nixed any talks of making his light-heavyweight debut out of the United States, which will likely halt any bout with top 205 contender Alexander Gustafsson.

    I need to be comfortable so I can hold another person against the cage for 15 minutes. Top 5 Most Boring Fighter in UFC. #1 in the Heavyweight Division.

    what?! this guys high off his ass…’I don’t want to be uncomfortable before a fight – I would prefer it if Gustaffson was uncomfortable. Plus I don’t think they’ll have food and saunas over there.’ Der’ wtf does he think Europeans eat? Just pass on the horse meat numb nuts, the rest is ALL there.
