It’s not uncommon for team allegiances to get in the way of Octagon action, as most fighters who work alongside each other on a daily basis are understandably against the notion of throwing down against a friend outside of the gym. However, in the case of heavyweights Cain Velasquez and Daniel Cormier, it appears the two may be willing to mix it up down the road but certainly aren’t lobbying for such a situation to unfold.
Cormier offered up his thoughts on a crack at Velasquez’s UFC championship during Fuel TV’s coverage of UFC 155 where he made it clear his current focus was on winning his final fight under the Strikeforce banner. He also said he is still open to exploring the 205-pound pool, and, even if he sticks around at heavyweight, Alistair Overeem is first in line assuming he defeats Antonio Silva at UFC 156.
Cormier’s full take on the matter can be seen below:
