The best main card in a long time. Every fight on it should be good, namely looking forward to Kyoji/Louis.

Don't want to see it happen, but Cerrone seems due for one of his mental hiccup losses.

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 hope Cormier smashes Jones.

Cormier is not likeable. He seems uptight all the time. Plus, he always the initiator between him and Jones.

Neither of them are likable, which is why on one hand it has been interesting to watch but on the other hand I really don't want an immediate rematch as I think it would burn everyone out at some point.

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.

We got to stop with the "no personality" narrative. Are you fuckers expecting fighters to be mid-80s Roddy Piper? Just stop for the sake of sanity.

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.

Agreed.

 

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.

I am trying to remember if Michelle Nicolini was as bad as Dufresne in her Legacy FC fight. It's close.

This card is dragging other then the KO. I really hope this main event delivers.

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.

I barely made it through that fight, my eyes were getting heavier then Tim Sylvia.
