Head 2 Head: Cormier vs. Nelson

At one time it seemed that Daniel Cormier would head straight from Roy Nelson to a light-heavyweight title shot as long as he could emerge with a win at UFC 166. That’s no longer the case, with things complicated by all of the recent developments at 205. Interestingly, that may also affect Nelson as well. After years of hearing calls to move down to light-heavyweight, now he’s entertaining the idea, too. For him, it’s a clean slate either way, but for Cormier, his light-heavyweight championship future must have seemed tangible, and you have to wonder whether the recent changes will leave him focused or distracted heading into the UFC 166 co-main event.


  • Does Head-to-Head have it right?
    • Yes, DC is going to wreck 'Big Country'
    • No, Nelson will hand DC his first loss
