Anyone else think that the way Cormier throws his punches KIND of resembles the way Fedor throws his punches?? It kind of looks like they sling the punches. I think those punches are called "Casting Punches" i remember reading an article about it a year or two ago because of a discussion. Obviously Cormier isnt as wild with his punches though.

Anyone?

Cormier dives back when Barnett throws that knee to the body, I would like to see Barnett try and fake it and charge in when the hands are down.

Seems like that would be pointless. Who would want to watch that? Who would he fight? Didn't they cut the entire roster? The only thing that would make sense is if they brought over a UFC fighter cause Cormier fighting some scrub doesn't do much for anyone.

That was one of the greatest takedowns I've ever seen.

Not all flash either he got right into side control.

But Showtime feels they have invested resources in the GP and therefore invested money in the winner and they want a return on there investment. No idea who they will fight but its been mentioned numerous times that they will need to fight in SF again after this.

Cormier is looking really good here and the only thing keeping Josh in it is that the guy is such a wily veteran who knows every trick in the book.

I think Cormier is now the best HW at AKA.
