UFC 192: Cormier Goes To War, Returns Victorious

For five rounds Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson went through hell and back at UFC 192 in Houston. Cormier was able to use his striking in the clinch to slow down and bust up Gustafsson. But in the process on winning a split decision and retaining his title belt he may have shaved sometime off of his career. We seen him eat a nasty knee in the third round which dropped him and had the fight in doubt. Gustafsson swarmed him, but to DC’s credit he was able to survive and get out of the round. Nasty cuts and swelling around his right eye hurt his vision he revealed in the post fight interview but…

UFC187: Cormier Wins But I Refuse To Call Him Champ

Daniel Cormier won at UFC 187 but I refuse to label him as the UFC Light-Heavyweight champion. I’m not hating or throwing shade to Cormier. He looked awesome at UFC 187 against Anthony “Rumble” Johnson. Early in the fight Cormier took some shots that we’ve seen snatch the souls of other fighters while displaying an iron-like chin. A chin tested for the first time at this point in his career. After surviving a scary first round, Cormier was able to lock in and find his rhythm. As action went on, he used his take down skills to wear down and gas out a game Johnson. In the end, it was a choke out in the third…

UFC 182 Predictions: Jones or Cormier? Who Else?

LAS VEGAS, NV- The first big MMA card of 2015, UFC 182, goes down Saturday night live from the MGM in Las Vegas. We have “Bitter Rivals” in the main event, a return of a former Ultimate Fighter and one of the hottest of 2014 looking to go on a title run this year. With that out of the way, here are my picks for UFC 182. Hector Lombard vs. Josh Burkman – Welterweight Making his UFC return after a 6 fight layoff, Josh Burkman has zero to lose here. Entering the cage Saturday night he’s unranked and a underdog to opponent Hector Lombard.  Since moving down to welterweight in 2013, Lombard seems to be…
