Daniel Cormier’s recent domination during a five round fight, winning the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Championship by unanimous decision on May 19, 2012 at Strikeforce: Barnett vs Cormier leads UFC President Dana White to say

“Yes, he will end up coming over to the UFC. The thing is I’d love to see the guy go down to 205 lbs.  I think he’s a small heavyweight over here.

Listen, I respect Josh Barnett, he did work Barnett. Barnett fights like once a year, I’m not taking anything away from Barnett, but it’s a whole other ball game over here.

I’m not telling him [Cormier], if the guy wants to stay at heavyweight, I’m not going to tell him where to go, but I think it would be a good move for him to go to 205.”

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez and training partner to Daniel Cormier share the same weight division and now also fight for the UFC.

If Cormier doesn’t take to Dana White’s recommendation and move to 205lbs, will it be a teammate won’t fight teammate scenario again at AKA?
