Yes I agree with the sentiment and Cormier has all the skills to do this with his superior grappling.
However if Cormier stands with Sylvia then it will be a much closer fight and dangerous for Cormier. In MMA skills Sylvia is a good fighter(lower tier UFC level), but in striking Sylvias skills are top tier when he gauges and gets his rhythm against an opponent.
