Daniel Cormier: Weidman Is The Best At 185, Maybe At 205
Top ranked UFC light heavyweight Daniel Cormier believes that Chris Weidman is the best fighter at 185 pounds, and maybe even the best at 205 pounds. Cormier said:
“To be the man, you have to beat the man,” said DC. “Weidman did it twice. I think Weidman’s the best, not only at 185, but could be at 205. But Lyoto Machida is the anti-wrestler. Machida has a really sneaky way to keep you from getting him down. This will be a very close fight. For Weidman, he needs to keep his front foot on the outside of Machida’s foot – it’s boxing 101 – whoever has the outside foot, leads the dance. He finds his angle and punch, punch, and makes Lyoto reset his feet and then he can attack the takedown. If he gets the takedown, he’s a great grappler from the top and has to control fight from there.”
