Curious to see what happens when/if McGregor makes the jump to LW. Him vs. Cerrone would be a hell of a fight. Rockhold looked solid, that fight should have been stopped in the 3rd round imo.

I like DC if he decides to wrestle, Miocic if DC decides to stand and strike.

Pretty accurate prediction by @LA Guy on Cerrone-McGregor, although it wasn't a good fight. Probably would have been a much better fight in 2016. I would like to see Gaethje-McGregor. Conor ducked that fight in picking Cerrone, but will rush to sign on the dotted line if Gaethje upsets Khabib.

DC was busting up Miocic in the second fight. When Miocic started throwing those hooks to the body was when DC started losing. If he fixes that issue I see him doing the same strategy and winning.

What do you all think of the possibility of Francis Ngannou becoming the UFC HW champion? I think it's a bit embarrassing for the UFC that a super-athletic guy with the skills of a Toughman competitor (okay a bit harsh, but not too far from the truth) can become champion.

Smaller cage suits DC a little more then Stipe, but I'm still on Miocic taking the fairytale ending away from Cormier on this one. This at least means that the belt doesnt get vacated the moment it's won (I'm looking at you GSP), and we don't have to worry about Ngannou swooping in to fight for a vacant title - presumably against the guy that just lost it.

I don't think there's anything embarrassing about it at all -- athleticism and physical specs can overcome a lot of "technical" deficiencies in every single professional sport out there. IMO it's not a knock to have, quite possibly, the most powerful puncher ever (combined with the fact he's in shape) be at the top of the HW division, which, by most accounts has historically been... the least "skilled" division in aggregate.

That being said, if what you posit about his skills being shoddy are true -- eventually he'll age and get beat and the world is right again. A "flash champion" has plenty of precedent in all sports.

To me, it would be saying it's embarrassing that Dwight Howard won DPOY so many times with relatively little "technical skill". There's definitely an argument to be made/something to be said, but I think it'd be a non-issue really.

Did anyone see last night's UFC event? Chris Weidman looked terrible. Lazy striking, ineffectual takedowns, and gassed out in the second round. This was a gimme fight and he needed a third round of lay and pray to secure the victory. Any middleweight with skills, decent cardio, and passable takedown defense would stop Weidman within two. He needs to take his gold watch and retire before he risks CTE.

I got Stipe, 48-47. Can't believe DC didn't wrestle more.
