I think DC is going to be too much for Rashad. DC is a tremendous athlete and does have power and elite level wrestling, the likes of which Rashad hasn't seen. I don't like this as a PPV main event though. It should have been a main event for a Fox card.

Rashad has more experience at 205, is used to the weight, and is faster than anyone Cormier has faced so far. It's a long way from slow Giants like BigFoot and Mir to the faster guys like Rashad and Jones at 205...

DC pours some milk over Rashad, cuts up some bananas, adds some dates, and then eats him for breakfast.

I give shad the speed, n probably a slight advantage in striking. But dc is leagues over rashad in the wrestling column & if dc gets a hold of him its TD or wall n stall time. & shad isnt the jab n jog type to avoid dc

Tough one for Schaub. The blue print has been laid out for him, though.

I think rashad is the better athlete for striking...more explosive. I think the TD won't come easy for DC so this fight is going to be decided on the feet where Rashad has the advantage in speed and experience.

You, of all the people on this entire forum, calling my post "delusional" is a good chuckle. Bigfoot and Barnett are nowhere near as quick and athletic as Rashad.  Not by a country-mile. Former Champ in the UFC "not talented and overated"?  Projection is what it's called when you accuse someone else of your own faults.

With all those ?'s you are bringing up, are you sure DC has this "in the bag"? I think it's a f*cking tough match up for him.
