02:10 PM ET 05.06 | Daniel Cormier has decided where he is going to fight next. The undefeated fighter will remain in the heavyweight division for at least the next of couple fights. "I always thought if I were to go down I would need a lot of time to do it. I think that still applies, but I would like to still fight," Cormier said. "At the end of the day I can't cut massive amounts of weight. That's well documented from my problems in the Olympic games. But I can diet, and when I???m dieting I can still fight. Can I fight at 205? No. Because it's too much weight to cut in a short period of time. But could I fight a heavyweight fight and just be a little lighter? I think so." Cormier hopes to return to action in July or August.
