Daniel Cormier will make his light heavyweight debut later this month, squaring off with ex-UFC champion Rashad Evans at UFC 170.
Cormier, who went unbeaten at heavyweight and is a former U.S. Olympic wrestler, sent out a message on Twitter earlier this weekend proclaiming how close he is already to making 205 pounds.
“UFC 170 can’t come fast enough,” he wrote. “3 weeks to fight 212 lbs.”
Cormier included a picture of himself, looking like almost like a big middleweight.
