I recall Stipe not really working the body until he seemed to make a conscious decision to do it in round 4, when he landed one good one, Cormier visibly reacted to it, and Stipe immediately just started spamming hooks to the body and the fight was over a minute or so later. Could be wrong though, I don't think I've watched the fight since seeing it live. :conf

Yea that’s pretty much exactly how it went down. It was also weird how DC just had no answer for them. He probably landed 12 of the exact same punch before DC got put away.

Last fight was a good fight, but Cormier eye gouged a lot. If it were not for the eye gouging Stipe probably would have had a easier time. If they allow Cormier to eye gouge again it could be a close fight lol.

DC is a muffin top wrestler and Stipe is a Golden Gloves Champion I believe. IMO, slightly more sophisticated as a fighter. Reminds me of Lennox Lewis. He should retire soon and go out on top.

If Stipe fights smart and tall he surely wins.

I don’t know he got out boxed for 3 rounds straight before that. I think it’s anyone’s fight.

Also so I'm still completely admittedly a casual UFC fan.
But through the working day I listen a bit to Chael Sonnen talk his shit on youtube.

He seems to give some good run downs and a good commentator on the sport.

How good was he as a fighter?
I CBF going back to watch him fight but he looks great in highlights. As does everyone though.

Sonnen would probably be considered a great if it wasn't for his mental weakness in the cage.

The first Silva fight sums up Chael as a fighter he has all the tools good striking (underrated IMO) and fantastic grappling skills but mentally checks out when he seems to be in a bad position.

Chael has good wins on his resume when he was on form he was top fighter. His performances against Yushin Okami and Brian Stann (plus the 4 1/2 Rounds against Anderson Silva) were incredibly impressive.

Waiting for the UFC to post the rematch online so I can download and watch it on the big screen. That was a great fight. Back and forth.

Righto Blokes.... just topped up my Bet Easy account. Only bunged on a lobster into it but I still don’t wanna lose it.

What’s the CHB UFC brains trust think? Who should I put it on.

Cormier $1.87 Miocic $1.95

Bet easy has a promo to double your winnings on a head to head bet.

So for the $20 it’s a $37.40 return for Cormier and $39 for Miocic

What’s the play?

I think dc wins, seemed to me he was bossing the second fight so much he thought he was unbeatable, dropped his hands and switched off, then when he felt the bodyshots he just wasn't prepared.

Expecting dc to full on wrestle in this one and it be a bore fest but get it done.
