Anyone with an upper echelon game has avoided the over hand right. I expect Cormier to do the same.

I don't see how he loses this.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

From the breaking down thread:

Quote:
I wonder if Nelson will be quicker on his feet with being so much lighter? I mean he has to be, right? Nelson has never been the guy on the balls of his feet and moving in/out at angles, he just walks in and trusts his chin enough to trade bombs. DC, contrary to popular belief, is actually slow. Watch the Barnett fight and see how slow he is to re-position himself or trying to follow Barnett around. DC moves at a very HW pace. What DC does have is explosiveness of a WW, so while he takes a while to get there once he does it is like watching a bomb go off.

I don't really think this fight will go to the ground, I honestly think that Roy will finish DC within the first 2 minutes of the fight with a big bomb. DC will plod forward, Roy will pounce and before DC can throw one of his own he will get caught. Barnett did it several times but just doesn't have the wrecking ball in his hands that Roy does. Should this fight go to the ground I will wonder if Roy will remember he is actually a very legit BJJ black belt?
DC has all the tools to win this fight, I just don't think he will. I think he is too distracted and is underrating Nelson too much. From the stupid request to have his beard shaved to continuing to talk about fighting Jones he just does not seem to be taking this fight seriously. I honestly think a large part of it is that he believes in his man Cain and knows that even with a win he won't take the title fight.

Assuming this fight goes to a decision (it probably will), at least 12 minutes of the 15 will be Cormier pressing Roy against the cage. Can't wait.

^^ pretty much.. cormier is scared to lose and will win this fight the safest way possible.

im still angry at him for fighting like a little b1tch against Mir..

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

Tell me that's not a MW standing there.



I think Roy is A HW because when he started the HWs were slow and less skilled than other divisions. And because he's lazy. One of those is not as true anymore. Roy is going to get lit up by a LHW who will win any way he wants to.

This is Cormiers fight to lose, IMO. If he stands with Nelson, he's giving Nelson a punchers chance. If he takes Roy down, this should be a relatively easy win for DC.

249 for Roy? Is that light for him? Anyone know his normal weight? He seemed to look a little buffer than normal.

He seemed a bit slimmer. May have added some muscle too. Not the was hoping for, but he does look in shape.
