        Ppls, Stipe is lighter than ever, he was working hard for this match for sure...cardio, speed, millions of punches and kicks from distance...thats his plan, DC would not be able to come close to Stipe!
        Stipe is angry and its underdog now, but that is situation when Stipe is most dangerous!
        I like DC but this fight will be war and for sure we weill see more rounds and Stipes apsolute domination...

                    Excellent analysis as usual but your output is quite low. Where is your take on Diaz vs Pettis, or Romero vs Costa?

                          I'm really conflicted about the main card as are many. On one hand, I really want DC to snatch this victory to be cemented as the P4P greatest HW of all time but I fear that Stipe may be hungrier not only because of his previous upset; but primarily because now that he's a father, he can see the fruits of his labor in tangible form. We've seen past examples of great fighters who bounced back after having a baby and went on a rampage (e.g. Cowboy, Poirier, Faber) and I don't believe Stipe will be any different.
                          On the other hand, DC's eye-pokes were outrageous and unsportsmanlike and Stipe is too humble to address them. Plus, I don't want him to have 2 potential blemishes on his record because he's a determined and phenomenal fighter.

                          I hope I'm wrong, but I fear DC's age and his wavering vision of retirement will somewhat hinder his fighting ability. Nonetheless, both are class acts and I wish them the best of luck tonight. #andstill

                              Love dan Hardy’s breakdown I learn a lot everytime. Only thing is he said that’s 260 weight into his punches for Cormier but he is a smaller heavyweight so he’s around 230

                                        I think DC's boxing is extremely underrated. He outboxes 90% of his opponents, and started outboxing Stipe after 2 minutes of figuring him out. I think DC wins be KO or TKO again

                                          "The champ should fight like 'come and get it'" - but when it's Woodley, he apparently doesn't have the mindset of a champion. Dan Hardy contradicts himself a lot

                                                        I think Stipe beats DC without any eye poke.

Volkan did aim for his head in that sequence trying to catch him with only throwing hands not one left high kick even after dc gave him all the cues he needed to adapt his approach but still even after seeing the reaction after throwing the same strikes without ever connecting clean he just doesnt adjust. Conor in that situation is one of the best to see the reaction and after seeing the pattern reacuring only for a 2 time he has downloaded it and adjusts to it by changing his approach and changes his attack to the reaction given and in seconds stops whats not working and changes his shot selection by selecting a more fitting strike in this situation where he knows it will land and meantime doesnt waste shots just to throw them but chooses very wisely when to strike and when to evade strikes. That's why his fight iq is one of the highest in mma.

But, when he favors a fighter, he can't help but sometimes give one-sided bias commentary towards the fighter he favors. Sorry, the ONLY fighter beating D.C. is Jon Bones Jones!!

DC cheated on a weigh in, eye gouged him many times throughout the last fight, never beat the champ at 205, never 2 weight champ...sick stuff this guy gets away with...and lies about...
