I like this fight a lot, but this is not a PPV main event. This would have been a great headliner for FOX, or an excellent co-main event for UFC 171 (Jones vs. Glover).

UFC 170 is going to be in the middle of a 7 week stretch with 3 PPVs. If they couldn't get a title fight on the card, then they should have just scrapped the event and spread out the fights to fill other cards, specifically the other two PPVs.

If the PPV prices end up staying at $60, then they would have to stack this card incredibly for it to do any well.

Terrible main event. Would be a fine co main but as a headliner? I was considering going to that card but unless the rest of the card is seriously stacked I can't justify spending the cash. I don't even know if I'll buy the ppv to be honest. Phone Post 3.0

I like this fight

Rashad poses some interesting new challeges for Cormier.

Rashad will be the first guy (I can think of) he's fought who will be equally as quick, explosive, mobile and athletic as Cormier.

Rashad is probably the best wrestler Cormier has fought, and certainly, for sure, vice-versa.

Evans seems like he's in a good place right now mentally.

Re-focused Rashad could present a lot of problems for Cormier.

Yeah I know JDS will kill him but JDS next fight is either gonna be Shaub or Nelson rematch.

I say if Cormier makes the cut its an easy win for him. For one key factor.

He ain't afraid to let his hands go or press the action. While Rashad at times can be very very tentative. Phone Post 3.0

Has anyone heard anything about how DC's diet is going? If he isn't weight drained he should take this.

Shads speed is the only legit advantage i can see. More then likely DC grinds out a boring as hell decision, but thats assuming he handles the weight cut. His reaction to the cut is the wildcard imo
