Yea sure Bigfoot is a can. A can who was ranked 4th in the world. A guy Browne, Overeem, and Fedor couldn't KO. Yet DC...a wrestler dropped him in the first. Yea sure. Bigfoot is a can. If he is a can then there are only about 6 HWs in the world who are not.

Yea, go give me a list of HWs with better resumes than DC right now other than Cain and JDS. Give me a break. Last person to fight for a title. Cain's wins over Bigfoot meant nothing. The UFC HW champ has only had 1 good win in the last 3 years then. Cain must be a fraud too.

He got lucky against Browne, Reem is a can, and Fedor is overrated and old... what is so impressive about any of that?

Cormier is good, but the idea that he is some world beater is HYPE, not proven fact.. so to insist that the word "hype" doesn't belong in the same sentence as "Cormier" is just like your opinion man...

Who has a better resume than him besides the 2 very best guys in the world at HW? Do you know of any? Barnett? DC beat him. Werdum? Why he has wins over Bigfoot and Fedor that were apparently not worth a damn in your eyes.

According to your criteria there are no world beater HWs other than JDS and Cain. No one is even saying he would beat either of those guys. People are saying he is easily a top 5 HW. Which is elite to most people.

Again, how is DC hype? He has done more in his short MMA career than many guys in the top 10. He has been in no trouble in his MMA career. Who does he have to beat to justify the hype then?

Cormier is proven, this is not debatable. Mir fight wasn't fireworks, so? Bigfoot got into the UFC before Cormier, went on to fight for the title... Daniel beat him before this. Barnett's rep is cemented, he's just returned to the UFC with a bang... Daniel dismantled him not so long ago too.

UFC is the place to be, but the time-span of these fights shouldn't be tarred by that fact. Daniel has defeated three top dogs in a row. This weekend isn't against a top dog but certainly a tough one he should beat, I'm not sure he's focused on this fight enough, and that's enough to lose.

I'd like to see Roy win by KO... just cuz that would throw a wrench in a bunch of plans.

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..
How can a fighter not have hype after dispatching easily of 3 top-ten HW's?

I'm going on other forums and bloggers/journo's going on about Cormier being the guy to beat JBJ or JDS should he get past Velasquez.

People are firmly swinging from the dude's trouser-chap.

I like me some big country but I really don't get why he was offered this fight, after losing his last one.

But this fight should be interesting if it doesn't end up the way the Mir one did, on the cage with two big dudes grinding into each other for 15 minutes.

I have Roy for the epic upset, coming in at 215, sporting abs.

The abs won't happen but the monolithic overhand right might.
