I dont think he is going to change much.

All things considered, Cormier is certainly favorite for me. Until you consider that he's hoping to blast through Roy unscathed, get checked out then be back in time to corner Velasquez.

What hype? Do people even know what the hell hype is???

DC has easily beat Bigfoot, Josh Barnett, and Frank Mir. 3 top 10 HWs. He beat with ease. Yet it is hype? What in the world are you talking about?

I think Cormier wins this fight by decision using a mixed bag of his skills and athleticism to control more of the fight. Wouldn't be surprised to see Roy hurt him at one point and even Roy to get the KO win but if I had to bet on the outcome I'd take Cormier by decision in a somewhat boring fight.

In my humble opinion, most people don't recognise how good Barnett is and how impressive that fight was. DC is going to roll over Roy. It's going to be very onesided. ...level changes

I've got Cormier taking this, he's going to be relentless and Nelson will not be able to keep up.

Cool response, seems like you have nothing to add. I'm calm as can be right now

My question was how can you beat 3 top 10 HWs with ease and your ability still be considered hype? Let me know if you have any opinion on that..

Bigfoot is a can, the Barnett fight was impressive, the Mir fight was pathetic.. one good win doesn't mean he is completely out of the hype zone..

he should be able to beat Roy, but unless he does it in impressive fashion im gonna keep calling it hype.. IMO Cain JDS Bones Werdum Miocic all beat him

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Black Fedor takes it vs Kung Fu Panda. I think Black Fedor is going to take the safe route and wear down KFP to a UD. Huge fight for Roy. DC is going the opposite direction; championship fight (Barnett), contender fight (Big Foot), to ex-champ (Murrr), and now to a gater.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
