    Great analysis here, Cornier uses the former heavyweight boxing champ George Foreman`s two handed glove control to prevent straight shots, skill in the UFC heavyweight division is very limited, who will win this rubber match?

    Got Stipe. Skill may be limited on the HW division but definitely not between these too. Are you aware that Stipe had a fairly solid amateur boxing background Mark? He fought(and lost too) none other than Bryant Jennings in the national Golden Gloves.

    His boxing skills look fairly basic but he uses feints, Ray Robinson said the shoulder feint wa the most important move in boxing.

    The small cage is a big factor in my opinion. We'll see though.

    Basic but fundimentally sound. Pretty good for MMA.

    Did Stipe get an eye transplant after Cormier poked him?

    I got Stipe too, good honest hard working beast. I’ll be honest though, I was surprised he was golden gloves level in the past, I’d expect him to be lighting up Cormier whilst standing instead of the wear down job.

    I believe he has, they gave him a skin graft for the scratches Cormier created with his nails also, the scratches where the eye pokes were off target

    Stipe looks in the shape of his life at the weigh ins, bit more muscular than last fight and still ripped and fit to go rounds. DC also looks to have put some muscle on, weighed nearly the same as last time but less fat and more muscle. I can't pick a winner with confidence in this one.

    He did just 7 months of boxing training before going to the national quarters of golden gloves.

    He'd be wise to use his legs and box Cormier from the outside, step in occasionally to pound that flab.

    Cormier would be wise to make it a wrestling match.

    This seems to be the prevailing wisdom regarding this match....

    yep I get you, although DC is a very good dirty boxer with quick albeit short arms,

    Cormier has to gamble for an early round KO. If it goes longer Stipe will win.

    Cormier looks in better shape for this fight.
