Because of the size alone, i don't let myself give Cormier much chance although he could probably win this fight just by outstriking Antonio tbh.

As far as Barnett-Kharitonov, i think Barnett.

That would give us Cormier-Barnett on the finals where i', completely lost, but if i really had to choose, i'd go with Cormier.

Well when it comes to Bigfoots size, I would agree with you except for Cormier's experience. Cormier has faced bigger guys who are more athletic then Bigfoot and come out on top. Not to mention he is constantly adapting to MMA.

I don't see him controlling Bigfoot. And I can't see him hitting harder than Mike Kyle who he trains with but gave Bigfoot everything he had right on the chin and Bigfoot still TKO ground and pounded him.

Bigfoot has decent hands. He's huge and still athletic enough to stay agressive with combos and jumping knees. His clinch work is good. He's very experienced against caged veterans like Ricco, Fedor, Kyle, Werdum, Arlovski... he's got that over Cormier as well.

He's heavy on top. And his BJJ is very good.

I know Cormier is a likable guy. Hell I really like him. But I dont see him winning this fight at all.

Bigfoot has decent hands but Cormier may have better hands. Cormier doesn't have to completely control Bigfoot. He just has to control him enough to win the match and that doesn't mean a knockout.

I'm leaning more towards Barnett honestly. Kharintov just isn't as experienced when it comes to recent fights. Also his sombo is rusty.

Barnett for sure against Sergei, I have a really hard time imagining Barnett losing that fight. Barnett will take him down and control him. Cormier-Silva I'm not sure about, that will be a close fight. I think Silva will take it just because he is too damn big.

Yeah, Barnett is old but he has been keeping up when it comes to experience. He is a catch wrestler who will do what it takes. Even though Cormier may not control Silva he can win.
