Cormier is a huge threat. Good standup and elite wrestling - very difficult to deal with.
I guess Fedor felt more comfortable slugging it out with Silva th treating him like Semmy Schilt and risking another submission loss.

I said after the Monson fight Cormier could do big things, was impressed with him in that fight but he blew me away with the Bigfoot fight.

I do think Bigfoot's got a glass chin, but take nothing away from Cormier, he's a top ten guy easily and a really great story.

Cormier really impressed me a lot last night. He made Silva look like a beginner and did whatever he wanted to. He totally dominated the stand up part and stopped the takedown attempts easily.

I think the finals will be more even than most people think. Of course, Barnett has the edge when it comes to experience and I'd give him a little advantage in stand up, but still Cormier will be the one who decides whether this fight lasts in stand up or ground. I don't think Barnett possesses enough power to take Cormier down just like that, but if he does so, then he's close to winning this whole GP.

Another thing which goes to Barnett's favour is condition. I believe he's got better cardio than Cormier, who usually gets tired after the first few minutes.

Overall, I'd give a slice advantage to Barnett, who's been my favorite in this GP since the very beginning.

Yes. He got a great future ahead. If he get past Barnett, I say bring him to UFC and face Velasquez.

They train together. But i think Valesquez recently said he doesnt mind facing a team mate. Which is good for Comier i suppose.

Just watched the post fight interview that Ariel did with Cormier and he said he would rather drop down to 205 and fight John Jones, now that would be an intersting fight.

I've always been a fan of Cormier, since the '08 Olympics.

I DO think he should drop down to 205 though. He was around 211 at the olympics and I think he could be great at 205.

I dont want to sound like a negative person but i wasnt that impressed , his punches were very sloppy and i think was really down to Silva being very stiff that he was caught rather than Cormier being good.

All credit to the guy for winning and i hope he makes a great career for himself i just wasnt that impressed with the fight and wont be jumping on his nutsack just yet.

...I didn't think much about Daniel at the start. Now, holy crap. Knowing his sparring partner is Cain, it never came to mind. Out of nowhere. I think Cormier has just blown in some MMA doors by finishing Bigfoot with relative ease. Man, Cormier's striking was impressive. Daniel's MMA stock has just shot up like a rocket. I just hope he didn't injure his hand when he bashed big Silva's monster skull. It would be a travisty if he had to leave the tournament. What a night of upsets. Barnett & Cormier in the finals? Not many of us thought that would happen. Simply put, after seeing Cormier's striking display against Silva, Barnett is in hot water if he can't TD Cormier. Who knew?...
