While the UFC's featherweight division has been the focus of fighters dropping weight classes, UFC President Dana White believes the light-heavyweight division could soon have a new addition.
Most notably, he's optimistic recent Strikeforce import Daniel Cormier (10-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) could soon make the drop from heavyweight.
"I think he's awesome," White said. "But at 205 (pounds), I think he'd be a beast."
Up first, of course, is Cormier's co-headliner with fellow heavyweight contender Frank Mir (16-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC) at April's UFC on FOX 7 event. If victorious, it could put the Olympian and Strikeforce world heavyweight grand-prix champion on a collision course with UFC heavyweight titleholder and current training partner Cain Velasquez (11-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC), who meets Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva (18-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) in May at UFC 160.LINK
