UFC 166: Daniel Cormier vs. Roy Nelson Full Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Daniel Cormier and Roy Nelson will meet at heavyweight on Saturday, but UFC 166 could preview a light heavyweight move for both men.

While Cormier has said he'll be dropping to 205 pounds regardless of the outcome over the weekend, Nelson recently posted a picture to his Facebook page of him looking much trimmer than usual. Due to the magnitude of their matchup at UFC 166, the winner could be an immediate title contender in the light heavyweight division.

Of all the heavyweights on the UFC roster, only Mark Hunt is shorter than both Cormier and Nelson. At 5'11" Pat Barry stands at an equal height with Cormier. With Cormier and Nelson both having a little extra girth around the midsection, it's unsurprising that they'd be considering a move to a lower weight class.

Which heavyweight will set up a potential light heavyweight title run on Saturday?

Here is a closer look at how Cormier and Nelson match up against one another in all areas.
