    Does anyone really think stubby has a chance? I hate this fight because DC didn’t earn it. His wins are over a bunch of really old slow guys. All joking aside, I see Jones destroying him in less than two minutes.

    • Darin

      Wow, I’d take that bet.

      • Guest

        bigfoot has always been looked at as a slow heavyweight. his last win in ufc was two years ago and the only legit win was against Alistair overeem.

      • TheCerealKiller

        Dan Henderson – Super slow and old
        Patrick Cummins – Last minute nobody
        Roy Nelson – Fat and slow
        Frank Mir – Twilight of his career
        Dion Staring – Never heard of him
        Josh Barnett – Another steroid relic
        Antonio Silva – He did beat Fedor, and then went 2-4-1
        Jeff Monson – Fringe fighter
        Devin Cole – Literally 20 wins over nobodies, 10 losses to people we’ve all heard of.

        That’s his last 9 fights. I don’t see one win that would earn him a title shot at 205. People put too much weight on Fedor’s last three losses. Not a single LWH top ten win.

        But, what do ya want to wager? I’m game, it’ll be fun.

        • Sir_Roy

          You’re generalizing & minimizing.

          A few of those folks were top 10 Heavy Weights when DC fought them. DC just made em retire.

          Frank Mir old and slow … ? The dudes 35 today. Knock off a few years for when he fought DC. He was in his Prime. He just got shut down. His only loss coming off three consecutive wins was against JDS. No shame there. Then Daniel got his hands on him and it was all down hill.

          Hendo is not slow. He’s methodical. And regardless, DC rag dolled him. Hendo gave a back pedaling Machida problems not long prior (some would say he won that boring fight). He were slow, wouldn’t be so problematic for Machida.

          Roy Nelson is a truck. BJJ black belt, huge knock out power. DC was overpowering him with relative ease.

          I honestly can’t read how this fight will play out … which makes me excited to watch it. But you’re being a tad disingenuous with regards DC’s accomplishments. DC is strong enough to overpower some big heavy weights with relative ease and rolls with Cain as his primary training partner. Let’s see how Jones handles that kind of natural strength and solid base. Should be fun.

          • TheCerealKiller

            Roy the “BJJ black belt” hasn’t submitted anyone since 2006. The thing is the talent level between HW and LHW is huge. Roy is 7-6 since joining the UFC and he’s ranked at #9. DC has his hands full in a few weeks.

          • Sarge

            To be fair, frank Mir has always been an average fighter & struggled with wrestlers (dc, Lesnar, Carwin).

            As for Hendo, he’s becoming slower now that’s he’s off TRT and his only wins since coming back to ufc are against shogun.

            Roy Nelson has proven he can’t win against top 10 fighters while he’s only good at knocking out the scrubs of the heavyweight division.

            Pat cummins: good fighter but not in DC’s league

          • uncle

            Make no mistake about it UFC gave DC softballs.

    • deepgrim

      i think dc has a very good chance. you can slag of his wins but they are still top of the division fighters and he has barely lost a minute in any of his fights. he has been able to rag doll heavyweights that were bigger than him. with dc’s elite wrestling i think it is possible for him to grind out jones against the cage like cain done against junior, jones has a good wrestling base too but i doubt its on the same level with dc. Dc spars with cain so i presume he can take a hard shot although hardly anyone has been able to tag him heavily. anything can happen but i would be amazed if jones finishes this in the first round

      • sean

        I’d be amazed if jones finishes it at all. Dc is to strong, to tough and to good. Dc wins in 4 rounds or less

    • uncle

      Hell no Jones is the master of distance… I would rather see Gus vs Jones 2
      and put DC with Rumble. People forget Gus got injured and DC was the
      replacement… I could care less about the trash talk and media brawls
      DC still doesn’t match up with Jones.

    • dandogood

      Stubby son wins this fight

  • Darin

    I don’t think the dudes at mmaweekly understand the meaning of the word “rumor”.

  • nancy cormier

    Let’s not forget hendo lost to shields.Jake won 4 out of 5 roundsjones destroys Cormier 4rnd beat down.then Gustafson will get what’s rightfully his a title shot.unless Johnson knocks him silly.regardless of who wins please no immediate rematch,tired of it.half of ufc champions have only fought rematches in their title reigns

  • dandogood

    Cormier wins this fight.
