What?? No Daniel Cormier fans???
am I the only one?

I honestly believe he can win this. I not at all impressed with Josh Barnett and Bigfoot Silva I have a feeling will be exposed real soon.

War Cormier...

I think that Cormier is a great talent and can definitely make waves, but feel Big Foot may be a bit too soon in his career. The guy is freaking huge and that size difference may well be the deciding factor. I'd say against both Kharitoniv and Barnett I really wouldn't be able to make a good prediction of who'd win those fights. All are slick on the ground and solid on the feet.

Excited to see where this goes though.

Cormier is going to **** The over rated (IMO) Big foot Silva.

Silva might be bigger height wise, but I'd lay money that Cormier has more grappling strength. And while he is a slightly more experienced striker, he isn't really a knock out threat (he nailed glass chin Arlovski with several flush shots and didn't drop him.). Cormier will control where this fight goes and if does go to the ground he will have top position. And while Silva has good top BJJ, his bottom game isn't anything to write home about.

I was impressed with him against Monson, in particular his striking. Im a fan.

Yeah he was fantastic against Monson, really impressive, but I think Big Foot is very good too and of course the size difference is a factor. Hard fight to call.

Bigfoot is a bulky 6'4 with an enlarged frame (due to pituitary tumor). He is fast for his size and has good muay thai. His g'n'p pretty much nullify's almost all defense.

Cormier is a solid 5'10 Olympic wrestler with Tyson hands. He is able to grapple with men usually 5-7 inches taller, and control fights. He can close the distance...EASY.

this fight will be daaaaaamn good

im a huge fan of cormier, i saw him fight here in australia and he destroyed some poor fella, and he has looked dominate in every match, i see him dominating bigfoot and him fighting my other boy barnett in the final, silva is easily the worst out of the final four

I'm a big Cormier fan, his striking looked SLICK against Monson and Bigfoot doesn't have a chance in the world at taking Cormier down. I say Cormier UD and then he'll have a tough fight against Barnett for a close SD in the finals.

Agree, i expected him to come in looking to shoot work on the ground but his stand up looked incredible! AKA FTW

I was always a fan the day he set foot into an arena for an MMA match. He was a great wrestler and I'm always a fan of great wrestlers. Either way he is showing how mutch of a MMA figher he is.
