Watched the E:60 Profile on Daniel Cormier and it was really good.  Story about how he had so many silver medals in his life in order to make the gold medal worth it was cool.   As much as I crap on him in commentary sometimes it is hard to hate the guy as a person.

Cormier at 236lbs. He was nearly 10lbs heavier last time they fought, and he was even heavier against Derrick Lewis at 251.

Wonder if he really does think he can go back to lightheavyweight after this....

In the Lewis fight (and probably the first fight with Stipe as well), he was dealing with a really bad back.  He likely did the bare minimum in terms of training.

Hell no. He's not GSP.

Maybe if Pettis breaks his hand on Diaz's face like he did on 2 Tuff Tony, and even then he'll probably still lose.

I don't even think the fight will be the fun war it's being promoted as.

Does anyone see Nate Diaz beating Anthony Pettis after three years away from MMA?

No. Three years out is a long layoff. Pettis by decision. Be nice to get some submission exchanges in the fight.
