Other than the main event, Im the most excited about this fight. Two elite grappling muscle sharks going at it. Should be a tremendous battle but my money is on the olympian. Mad respect for Monson but I think the freakish wrestling abilities of Cormier will keep monson on his back trying for submissions the whole time and failing.

Now this is a fight I would bet on!

Cormier is so overrated already.. he is going to lose clearly by stoppage second, third I guess!

Intriguing fight, Cormiers biggest test to date and i think this will tell us a lot about Cormier. I'm picking Cormier by TKO early on, but i won't be suprised at all if he wins a UD as Monson is a tough dude. Cormier should dominate the stand up, and stuff the takedowns from Monson when needed.

Monson looks like he is in shape for his return to the big time, looks like he has trimmed down a bit as well.

Yea he lost a good 5-10 pounds of fat so he got a bit leaner. Definitely one of the most intimidating mma fighters on the planet. Looks like he could be the ring leader of the Aryan brotherhood.

I think Cormier is going to win this but I'm going to place a bet on Monson anyway, he will give you 4 times your money on unibet. Thats just too good not to bet on.
I actually think Monson has a bigger skillset than Cormier but it's a very bad stylistic matchup.

Excellent

Comier is going to gas out in the second Round andMonson will have his way with him I am sure.

Cormier and his superior wrestling should take this.

Time to see if Cormier deserves half the hype he has. Should run through Monsoon but will have to see what happens.
