I want to see how he deals with Comier or a good BJJ guy for a change.
He's very good at the trip and the double-underhook takedown.

Against Cormier, he needs to get a lot better than "very good" if he wants to be anywhere but on his back or on his feet.

Cormier is outstanding. As I've said before, he is Strikeforce's Velasquez, and IMO he is actually a bit more refined than Cain, he fights calmer and less scrappy.

Cormier's weight/physique is not an issue, it's fine. He went 3 rounds with Monson no problem. He needs that tank-like build to counter his lack of height and reach, it's fine as long as it doesn't gas him within 2 rounds all the time, and it doesn't.

Barnett has an extremely effective skillset, it's bad news for anyone, but he's not taking Cormier down and he takes too many shots. Dan will most likely knock Josh out and win this tournament.

The most natural option then will be the UFC... has he ever said whether he would fight Cain? Dan always praises him and says he trains under him, I get the impression they would not fight. That will only be a major problem if Cain is still champ when Cormier is in the mix though.

I'm not one of this Fedor trolls, his career victories speak for themselves, he fought and defeated the elite HWs for a prolonged period, hell he's one of the best ever.

That said, he's reached his peak, and I don't think anyone could argue that he's better than Daniel Cormier at this point in time.

It's sad to say that, obviously Fedor has the better legacy, that's a given, but right now, we all know who the better fighter is.

I wonder if King Mo is really going to make it into the UFC without fighting again. Well I guess we will have to wait and see. Anyways I think that loss is why he didn't bring in his girls.

Maybe that'll be King Mo's last match before they fold into the UFC. The man that gets the win is guarenteed a shot in the UFC. Looser isn't guarenteed anything whatsoever!

Maybe we'll get to see Mo vs Rampage within the year if Rampage loses twice and Mo goes on a short streak.

If we see King Mo versus Rampage it's not going to be because of a loosing streak. Rampage has to loose against Jones and Mo has to string wins. Then it would be a welcome for King Mo.
