Daniel will be taking on Dion Staring, and just opened as a 20-1 odds favorite over the relatively unknown Blackzilian team member. The line will undoubtedly narrow as fight day approaches, but Cormier feels that this is a disrespectful and impractical opening line. I spoke with Daniel today, to get thoughts on his upcoming fight and future.

20-1 Odds

I think that's actually ridiculous. It's pretty disrespectful to Dion, too.

Seems like a cool dude. Can't wait to see him matched up with the upper echelon of the UFC roster.

This is the guy that got fucked up by LIL Nog.  I think the odds are pretty appropriate.

I've never even heard of the guy ... They may seem a bit high, but don't bets make the odds?  The numbers don't lie and they certainly don't "respect" anything or anyone.

Daniel isn't stupid he realizes he has only had 10 fights and is fighting a guy who has had 35.

Want to lower the odds Daniel? Then cut off both your legs. Would still then be 2-1 odds in favor of Cormier Phone Post

This is the reason they put these odds, anything less and people wouldn't even bother betting on this match.

I know exactly what they are doing, lol.

I'm not actually putting money on Dion, to be honest I never bet on MMA. It's too unpredicatable and I've never been much of a gambler anyway.

He opened at -750 on Monday at the sportsbook I go through. I added him into a parlay. 30 minutes later he was at -1200.

-2000 is crazy. You don't see odds like that very often in MMA (unlike in boxing you see -5000 or higher at times)

More fighters should be like Daniel Cormier.

Especially Rashad; do you think DC would have handled the "Rashadgate scandal" at Greg Jackson's the same way Rashad actually did?

Not a chance.

The starting line was 20:1. Before any bets..

DC is such a good guy it seems, and he did great on the microphone the other night on FUEl as well
