How do you guys see this fight playing out?
Stipe easily. Blaydes has no striking defense and the wrestling likely cancels each others out. KO inside 2 rounds.
Miocic 1st round stoppage, Blaydes is a C level talent.
Blaydes is fortunate everyone is shot to ****. He'd smash Werdum as well. Would love to see him against Ngannou
They already fought and Ngannou stopped him after 2.
Blaydes vs the winner of Lewis/Ngannou should be next. He was holding his own with Ngannou and took him down in the first fight.
I'd like to see the winner of Miocic/Cormier fight Volkov next. He's deserving a shot at the belt now.
Yeah I know but he's the only loss on his record and right now I'd say the rankings are probably
So a fight between those two has a lot more meaning than it did.
Plus Blaydes is very strong now and has ever chance of wrestle ****ing Ngannou.
Is anyone giving Cormier a chance against Miocic?
Not much. a few years ago I'd have given him a great shot(almost 50/50) But now he's older, coming up in weight after having grown accustomed to fighting at LHW for years. Stipe will be too big and powerful. The wrestling will cancel out and it becomes a boxing match with Miocic will win. Thinking a stoppage in the 2nd or 3rd rd for Miocic.
Do you think someone like a Blagoy Ivanov can dethrone Miocic sometime in the future?
Ivanov no. He'll be a good contender but falls short of beating Miocic. I think Minakov fully motivated is the only guy who stands a real chance.
