DC is good he's just on a lot of steroids and worse than jon jones. On the other hand, stipe is massively over rated and not great at anything. On the other other hand stipe is probably like 7/10ths of a Jon Jones so maybe that's still enough to beat DC. Hard one to call but one things for sure: I won't watch the fight because I dislike both fighters.

Stipe has had kind of a blessed reign in terms of opponents. He beat Fabricio because Fabricio did possibly the dumbest thing I've ever seen a guy do in a title fight and ran into Stipe's fist. He beat two heavyweights who are way past their prime in Overeem and JDS and Overeem almost finished Stipe.

This is kind of every UFC heavyweight title run. Like, if you look at the people who've successfully defended it in the modern age,
  • Arlovski had Justin Eilers and Paul Buentello, both sloppy brawlers who played directly into his hands
  • Sylvia had Gan "My fighting skill is being tall" McGee, a gunshy Arlovski he'd already knocked out, and a dude he had almost a full foot on in Monson
  • JDS had a mid-thirties, post-deflation Frank Mir with basically no path to victory
  • Cain had JDS and Bigfoot, both of whom he'd already turned into sock puppets before
It's just kind of the nature of heavyweight. The most impressive title defenses are Couture over Gonzaga and, hilariously, Lesnar taking out a Frank Mir who'd already beaten him before and a Shane Carwin who'd murdered everyone he touched.

(also JDS was only 33 when he fought Stipe so I don't know that I'd call him past his prime, he got his poo poo hosed up by Overeem but so have a ton of people)

TheKingslayer posted:

I mean, f you look at it in a really basic way in that both guys should be "equally skilled" and then the physical advantage of being taller giving Stipe the edge? Sure.

But we all know there's more to it than that. So maybe a lot of casual money is coming in for the heavyweight champ.

Yeah. Stipe is the bigger man, but I'm having a hard time giving that much weight (ha) to it.


Le Saboteur posted:

Pretty surprised DC came in heavier than Stipe. He got big for this one.

He suffered an injury during a press conference, and it affected his weight cut.


Gay Horney posted:

honestly the more I think about it it doesn't. stipes never fought a guy like this before. even though I still think stipe will win I don't think he's twice as likely to win as dc

That's the conclusion I came to. I don't think Stipe is 2x as likely as DC to win this.

Lol at anyone who thought Stipe would be so much heavier than DC.

I know it would break Kev...Matt Lindlandís heart, but wonít Brock prefer to fight Jon Jones over DC/Stipe?

Brock is hosed against whichever guy comes out on top. But it'll be a fun freak show. With a guy that big and athletic you never know what could happen.

Really you just need to land hard first on Brock -- that completely takes the fight out of him.

Was he doing a traditional water weight cut? I don't really see why, if rehydrating would still get him under the limit.

So is Mark Coleman now a state witness or something? Can he get a super hero armor suit?

I think I told you guys this before, but one of my doctors accidentally let slip that he treats or treated Mark Coleman. Said he was one of the friendliest patients he ever had.

I asked, "Was he also the drunkest?"

Doctor just flushed with embarrassment and said, "Maybe."

Embedded shows the DC fall, looks like he was limping cuz his leg was sore but not like broken or anything.

Those speakers were stupidly close to the chairs as well.

Also the ending interaction between Stipe & Francis was because Francis was so confused about why Stipe was being so nice complimenting his shirt.
