They both fight at UFC 166…
- Daniel Cormier recently spoke about training with Cain Velasquez and more. Here are the highlights…
On Training With Cain Velasquez: "The good thing is, you just know that you always have someone to train with. I know I won't ever be on that bike by myself, because Cain will be there," Cormier said. "I know I never have to worry about having a sparring partner, because Cain's always going to be there. We spar hard at least once a week," Cormier said. "And it sucks."
On Dropping to 205: "I don't want to fight Cain, obviously, and I want to hold the belt at the same time that my teammate does. I think that would be great for our gym. It's also that, when I first started this sport, I didn't want to think about losing weight and worrying about that aspect of the sport, because I just needed to get skills first. I was so raw. I didn't have the skills where I could afford to take on another thing to worry about. Now I can."
On His Recent Weight Loss: "I can feel the differences in my body," Cormier said. "It's better than I expected it to be."
On Both Fighting at UFC 166: "I think we both have tough fights (at UFC 166), but Cain probably has the tougher one," Cormier said. "It's a guy who's beat him before and a guy who's proven to be one of the best in the world. Anytime you get two guys like that in there, you know it's going to be a fight."
