    A lot of casual morons saying Stipe is going to destroy DC as usual.

    Any odds out for this yet? I really like Cormier's chances.

    Cormier is way too small for HW. No chance against Miocic. He will get his ass whooped badly.

    Cormier has fought at HW before. You know that right?

    Cormier probably has a better chance against Miocic than a lot of other HWs. It'll be a pretty boring wrestling fight though unless we see a KO from Stipe.

    lol. He is a former heavyweight fighter known as "Black Fedor" and smashed Bigfoot Silva, who is monstrously bigger as well as several other household name heavies.

    The only reason he dropped to LHW is because his training partner Cain was champ and they would not fight each other, but everyone agreed DC would be getting a title shot at heavy soon.

    Size is a huge disadvantage for Cormier in this fight. He fought a great fight in his first fight against Jones but Jones' size advantage was too much. It's going to be a big issue against Stipe.

    Jones is a different beast than Stipe. Jones is a one of a kind fighter where he is so lanky and strong that it is impossible to get inside with him for extended periods or try to take him down.

    Stipe doesn't have that same kind of reach (80 inches vs 85 for Jon) nor does he have freakishly long legs like Jones does.

    Also DC previously fought in heavyweight and faced guys of similar stature such as Josh Barnett.

    Not selling Stipe short here, but this will be a lot closer than DC vs Jones. I have no idea who will win though.

    Not trying to downplay him or anything, but 194 cm Stipe is way too much for 180 cm man. Reach advantage is huge and i don't see how Cormier could take him down. It won't go to judges.

    Anyway hats off for Cormier about taking the challenge. He could be on welterweight with his lenght but guy is going for HW title.

    I wonder if this means Jon Jones will move up to HW when he's back to fight the winner of this fight.

    DC probably retires before Jon is back.

    Cormier is undefeated in his career as a heavyweight with wins over Frank Mir, Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva and Roy Nelson

    Yes good for him and hats off because Cormier is welterweight sized guy fighting at the heavyweight. Stipe is different kind of animal than guys in your sentence. I will be really surprised if Miocic doesn't knock him out.

    I'm a huge fan of Miočić's, and quite frankly I believe DC will be his biggest challenge, with all due respect to the guys he fought up until now. DC is also one of the guys whose win against Stipe I could stomach.

    You made a dumb statement and now you're backtracking. :laugh:

    Would be easier for you to come out and say you have no idea what you're talking about.

    this is a pick'em fight. Kinda dumb to say that either is sure to destroy the other.

    I am excited already. Cormier as only ever lost to Jones. Miocic has lost twice. He avenged one and the other was almost 5 and a half years ago to Stefan Struve. This is going to be great.

    Eh, it's a heavyweight title fight. Chances are someone does end up "destroying" the other guy.

    I like Miocic as of today. I think he can keep range and stay away from Cormier's power punches.

    Massive fight for Miocic. I consider Cormier the 2nd best fighter of all-time behind Jon Jones.
