I hope that Cormier wins although I am not a huge fan of either one but I am praying that whoever is in the ring with the two takes it easy on the stoppages.  Given how much of a hard on the "best booker in the business" :rolleyes:   has for rematches I would hate to see a finish that requires us to go through this in another 9 months

I like both guys. I like that Jon Jones is just a natural heel without him even trying to be. The only thing missing from Jones' act is a pair of smug suspenders. Hearing about their first encounter from both guys- DC came off as up-tight. DC is a HUGE mark for himself while Jones is having fun. Having fun means you are going to make friends and rivals. This is going to be a good fight. I want to see DC win it as I want to know there is someone who can take it to Jones. I want to see a really good fight. However, I feel like this is going to be like the Jones/Evans fight were the distance and overall length of Jones pretty much neurtralized Rashad Evans.

i am interested in seeing Jones face the winner of Gus/Rumble.

i am not interested in seeing Cormier fight because, for the most part, he's not very interesting. the Jones "feud" seems to give him a personality when before he didn't have any.

KOTY candidate on the first show of 2015?  RIP Danny Castillo.


It was a bad omen when he came out to "Lost One" by Jay-Z. Signed his own death warrant. Then, he went out and got frozen in carbonite.

Also Garbrandt put a pretty brutal beating in that third round against Brimage.


Plus Alexis Dufresne made Roxanne Modaferri's stand up look like Tyrone Spong.

This card is going exactly I didn't expect it to.


Horiguchi vs. Gaudinot was the fight I was looking forward to the most and even that was a letdown. Glad Horiguchi was able to pull off the win though.
