both deserve the shot, these are just different and justified arguments, I'm just more curious to see what cormier can do against jones

I don't think cormier would let jones impose his range and jones would need to be really dearing to come close and wrestle with a fighter with such a powerful core and technique

Gustaffson is next. I too agree DC doesn't deserve an immediate shot. Beating Pat Cummings does not mean you get a title shot right away. Before that, he beat Roy Nelson and Frank Mir in the HW in the UFC, that doesn't scream a title shot either.

If he beat someone like Phil Davis, or even Ryan Bader, I would have a better time making a case for DC to get a title shot. Granted, I think he will do really well against Jones.

Dana White Says Cormier Will Get Winner Of Gustafsson vs. Bones/Glover Winner

Quote:
Make no ‘Bones’ about it, Daniel Cormier, moved down to the UFC’s light-heavyweight division, solely to earn a title shot.
He may have had his wish if Rashad Evans didn’t get injured, resulting in the cancellation of their scheduled bout.
Gustafsson’s victory last weekend, put a further delay in Cormier’s contention, but the UFC boss took to twitter and said, if he waits he’s next inline.
Daniel Cormier Wants To Stay Active, Will Not Wait For Title Shot

Quote:
The UFC’s light-heavyweight division is packed full of guys looking to knock off the champ and arguably best fighter in the world right now, Jon Jones. Jones is set to face Glover Teixeira in Baltimore at UFC 172 on April 26. If Jones can get past Teixeira then he will face Alexander Gustafsson for the second time. But wait, what about Daniel Cormier?
The former heavyweight was successful in his debut at light-heavyweight, easily defeating Patrick Cummins. After that fight Cormier began to push for a shot at the title, asking the UFC and Jones himself to make him the next challenger. Cormier recently talked to MMAJunkie.com and mentioned that prior to the Gustafsson vs Manuwa fight this past Saturday, the UFC told him that if Gustafsson lost then he would be next in line for the title shot. Unfortunately, Gustafsson got the TKO victory over Manuwa in the second round.
Now Gustafsson is set to face the winner of Jones vs Teixeira and instead of waiting for the winner of Gustafsson vs whoever, Cormier told MMAJunkie that he plans on staying active.
“I want to fight. Listen, I’m 35 (years old) this month. I’m not going to sit on the shelf at this point. I feel great at this weight. I need a fight.”
“I don’t see the point in sitting out for, I mean, this is going to be a long time,” Cormier said. “If I was going to sit there and wait, I could potentially be 36 years old by the time I fight. Why would I waste a whole year of my career? I don’t have that luxury.”
Jones Doesn’t Want Gustafsson or Cormier – Wants Them To Fight Each Other Instead

Quote:
At UFC Fight Night in London this past weekend, Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson handed then, 14-0 Jimi Manuwa his first career loss via TKO. Gustafsson expressed his desire to get back in the cage with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, during the post fight interview with Dan Hardy. Following that impressive show, UFC President Dana White announced the Gustafsson would get the winner of Jones vs. Teixeira at UFC 172. Twitter was buzzing with the excitement of a seemingly fast-approaching Jones/Gustafsson rematch, and this buzz casued Jon “ Bones” Jones to give his thoughts about the match up on the social media site:
“Why not give the winner of Alexander and [Daniel Cormier] the winner of myself and Glover??” asked Jones on Twitter. “Call me what you want but I can’t be the only person who thinks that makes perfect sense. I see DC congratulating Alexander and making comments about waiting his turn now. I wonder if they’re afraid to fight each other? People who don’t like to think are quick to call me afraid. Think about it, I’m asking for the meanest of the two would you face winner of Phil vs Anthony?”

UFC 171( this week end) has the makings of being one of the best cards of this year:




Hoping for Condit to put on a show, the guy is my favourite fighter. Also rooting for the main event to be a bloody mess, don't particularly care who wins it.

Rest of the fights looking promising also

Looks promising but could easily be another night full of snoozers, my expectations are not high.

Condit is a point fighter, great one at that, but definitely not the most exciting fighter in the division. I am pulling for Woodley in this one.

Jake Shield is known for putting on snoozers unless he gets finished early. I am hoping Lombard can not get blanketed, but I see it going to a decision.

Diego Sanchez and Miles Jury, might be a back and forth fight, but I think it will go to the decision again.

Win or lose, I'd like to see Lawler rematch Diaz, now that's a fight with a lot of sparks.

That can't be farther from the truth mate, out of 29 wins:
  • 14 by k.o
  • 13 by sub.
  • Only 2 by decisions.

Hendicks missed weight !

His recent fights? He's played it safe in his fights with any title implications (Diaz, GSP, Hendrix). He used to be exciting but he plays it safe, not saying it's bad just saying it makes uninteresting fights (like recent UFC events)

Dude...Condit was not winning that fight. It was close but many reputable sources and myself all gave round one to Woodley. Granted, I agree, that was a shitty ending.

You skipped out on the main event?

Yes he did win round one, but Woodley had already slowed significantly and Condit was just starting to push the pace. I think Condit was moments away from really taking over the round and either would have won the decision or submitted Woodley.

He is known for being a 5 round fighter and he always does this push the pace after his opponent gasses out which like always Woodley started to do.

As for the main event, i watched it eventually. It was good 2-2 first 4 rounds maybe 3-1 to Lawler who i think either had a brain fart or gassed out in round 5 where Hendricks almost smashed him.

I'm back to jiu-jitsu and I've been searching for standing fight solutions for heavyweights in order to try to always be on top so I decided to watch wrestling videos and this man is unbeliveable

ufc 171

 
OSP I remember seeing him in Strikeforce, always liked him. Glad that he is climbing steadily. Iirc Krylov was hailed as one of the big talents from east europe, not sure how accurate my info was but it was a slick finish

Diego Sanchez...omg. Annoying. Glad that he lost. For whatever reason I can't stand hyperactive guys like him, It's probably cuz' I care less about intimidation and hype than before. Now I only enjoy a Dan Henderson type of staredown...and someone backing that up

Lombard looks very much tailor-made for welterweight. REmember when he got suffocated and simply dragged down by Okami in a bigger weight, but now he looks fresch and always dangerous.

Condit knee is unfortunate, but Woodley capitilized on it so I don't see anything weird with the outcome of the fight. It could've, would've, might've but who cares? Woodley did what Lawler didn't manage to do against Hendricks.

Hendricks tbh, even if I still felt annoyance about him and DW acts towards GSP, I just can't downplay what he did.

He looked "sloppy efficent" when striking..like a much less volume-punching Diaz...but much more important, he showed Champion material by sticking around in tough water. I honestly thought Lawler would've gained the upperhand coming into the last round (had it 2-2 prior to that) but he shut him down. It's partly Lawler's fault but also thanks to the pure commitment Hendricks pulled off.

Great fight.

---

also, I saw after that he didn't manage the weigh-in. That might explain why he looked sloppy. I don't know why but he needs to fix that, not so much because of the professionalism that goes with it, but more that he'll have problem in the future if he relies on grinding matches like these.


edit: Used to read MMA articles every single day, haven't read a single one this year :/
