The only black eye against Fedor is how drastic his fall was from 2010 to 2019. But Cormier has a legitimate case at being the greatest heavyweight ever. When it comes to pound for pound, Cormier will likely never surpass Jon Jones. But he would still be in elite company alongside the likes of Jones, St-Pierre, Fedor, Anderson Silva, Amanda Nunes and Demetrious Johnson.

But a loss? A loss is devastating to his claim not only as the greatest heavyweight of all time but his placement on the list of pound for pound fighters as well.Losing to Jones was forgivable when Cormier ended up becoming the heavyweight champion. It gave him an accolade that Jones has yet to accomplish what Cormier has. But losing to Miocic twice on his way out will be incredibly damaging to his status among the greats.
It’s not like Cormier would be eliminated from the conversation entirely, but it would be difficult to make a case for him when he’s exited the game with back to back losses. It would almost make the losses more significant than the victories. And that’s damaging to a man who has accomplished so much as a mixed martial artist.
But that’s the position that he’s put himself in. And if Cormier is holding firm on his decision to kiss the game goodbye, he’s going to have to deal with the consequences.
