    DC limited himself fighting at LHW. He's short but he's built like a wrecking ball so he murders himself to make 205, not to mention the weight he actually has to lose to stay healthy for the division.

    I think he was a lot stronger at HW with a much better chin there too. I can see that fight being a lot more competitive back in the day before DC's KO loss to Steroid Infused Jones.

    DC would be his toughest test to date.

    i dont know why DC gets so little respect but hes an intelligent fighter. He would go into that fight fully respecting the power on the other side and a plan in place to negate as much.

    his intelligence has only failed in comparison to JJ natural talent but thats another story.

    I don't think DC has ever lost a round at Heavyweight.

    TBH I thinks dc runs through him pretty easily. He's got a great chin, better cardio, less power but overall better striking, and obviously better wrestling. Also he's proven he can take a hit and grind out wins against guys with inferior cardio(rumble fights).

    Ngannou would do what Rumble couldn't.

    I think Stipe is the tougher oppoennt at HW, and could realistically sleep DC.

    DC takes him down and grinds out a decision win.

    He couldn't run through Mir, or Nelson, but he runs through an athletic freak, and monster sized HW with deadly KO power at HW?

    I love DC, check my track record, but he's actually a lot stronger at LHW, and can fight like a pressure/bulldog type of fighter.

    At HW he's more of a mover, and fights off his backfoot more often in striking range, and not during clinches, and grappling exchanges.

    He even said he couldn't do anything to Mir with his uppercut, while he was one shotting guys like Cummins with the same uppercut. Straight from his mouth, he says he's way stronger at LHW.

    DC would probably win. I think he'd pressure Francis, grind him on the fence giving him no space, get the td whenever he felt like it and delivers a beating while smothering Francis on the ground. You never know though. DCs age could show up anytime.

    DC wins in an absolute mauling, think Khabib vs Johnson rounds 2 and 3

    So little respect? Pretty much everyone in here has him destroying Francis and that wouldn’t be happening with any other active fighter on the UFC roster...

    That doesn’t change how the fight would go. I guess you don’t know much about grappling but that is ok.
