In dropping to lightheavyweight, Daniel Cormer wanted an immediate shot at Jon Jones' title, but the UFC had a different plan. Instead Cormier will face colleague and friend, Rashad Evans in his first bout in his new weight division. Although he doesn't dislike Evans, and works with him on FOX Sports, he'll have no problem hurting him in the cage:

"I offered them (UFC) up a whole bunch of different scenarios and this was the fight that was going to happen. I would have preferred to fight someone else, but the UFC are going to make the fights and its our job to fight. I care about him a ton and I think he's a great guy, but now it's time to get down to business and were going to get in that cage and I have to try and hurt him. I can't go into the cage feeling like I don't want to hurt my buddy because otherwise he is going to hurt me and beat me and that will set me back and keep me from obtaining my goals."

This should be a good fight. He's absolutely right too.

Gotta go in there and try to kick some ass.

I'd really like Rashad to win this one but DCs striking looked really good against Roy. Phone Post 3.0

Id be worried about the "friends" aspect if we hadnt just watched Shad go apeshit on chael. Just hoping DC is ultra focused on making the weight.

This is the unfortunate truth. Rashad is insanely boring. Furthermore, BOTH are friends and have sparred in the past....So this could turn ugly where both put on a "friendly sparring match" instead of put on a fight and go for the finish....Everyone should keep their expectations in check....at best we will be surpised

Rashad has been boring, but has also been exciting lately.  2 of the most boring fights in recent years are Cormier vs Mir and Cormier vs Nelson.

Rashad vs Davis and Rashad vs Lil Nog were terrible.  But when he fights opponents he should beat, like Chael, he runs through them.  When Cormier fights guys he should beat, like Mir, he holds them against the fence and does nothing (since he got to the UFC of course...was finishing in SF).  When guys like Barnett, JDS, Carwin, Brock, etc... fight Mir, they obliterate him.  Cormier should have too.

Again, why does the UFC always pit the top Black fighters against other Black fighters?

So does this mean Cormier will press him against the cage extra hard?

I just can't see a any high probability of a Rashad win. Cormier rag dolled Josh frikkin Barnett! Rashad will definitely not outmuscle Cormier. Cormier is equally explosive. He also has Mark Hunt type power in his punches. Rashad most definitely will not dare stand and trade. Cormier is a very nasty matchup for anyone except a brutish, huge and very aggressive heavyweight striker. He's too strong, to quick, to skilled and very hungry.

How Rashad exposed Sonnen will be how Cormier exposes Rashad.

Yeah, let's just completely pigeonhole Cormier's talent based off of one fight. Phone Post 3.0

DC gasses in the second after a brutal weight cut and Rashad KO's him IMO.

Semi related note - What's with all the hate for Rashad? The guy is funny, top 3 at LHW and comes to fight.

I hate seeing friends fight. I think some people are sleeping on Rashad on this. I think he's going to do well.

Im pumped for the fight and picking Rashard for the upset.

He looked very determined in the Chael fight like he was rejuvenated and hungry again.

Rashard has had. Career of being the under dog Phone Post 3.0

Thinking DC will dominate this fight is in no way "hate" for Rashad. Phone Post 3.0
