    Im stoked for it and legit believe DC can win. I dont know what it is about stipe tho, maybe its just cause who he was coming up that I still dont take him serious. He lost quite a few times. I miss the crocop shorts he wore.

    EDIT: Wow stipe has only lost to JDS and struve and that was very early on. Thats actually pretty impressive.

    I would be lying tho if im not more excited for holloway vs ortega. The smaller divisions are really picking up steam -125.

    I really don’t care who wins this fight, I respect them both.

    P.S. why does your avatar have a video of a chick getting her asshole brutally “reemed” out?

    I've already bet on DC.

    I do think he's slowing down, but I think he still has enough for Stipe.

    Like them both a lot, so it's not a biased thing.

    Sherdoggers are killing me, I agree.

    But, on another note... Can we please not talk about 226.
    I wanna pretend it's not happening so whoever does make it to the cage, is a bonus.
    We all know someone's gonna get injured and someone's gonna miss weight.
    :(

    Far more brave than I.

    Until I see him a week or so out, still able to tuck his t-shirt into has track pants, I'm terrified he's been on the popeyes every day diet.

    Two nice guys fighting doesn't move the needle in the current UFC Attitude Era.

    I think it is a great fight, and I hope DC pulls it out.

    I am exceptionally excited for this fight.

    With that said, seeing DC get kicked in the head and knocked the fuck out just two fights ago, does take the shine off this "super fight" just a little bit. I'm still damn excited though, it shall be an amazing fight.

    Maybe people have learned their lesson from constant let downs and are reserving their excitement for when (if) the fight actually happens.

    The DC/Stipe fight does not really feel like a superfight, probably because the LHW and the HW divisions are the weakest male divisions. DJ vs TJ sounds far more interesting.

    I don't think that fight will ever happen. DC doesn't want to lose to Jones for a 3rd time, twice was enough.

    And I got Stipe via UD.

    Stipe leaves himself open for big shots.

    And DC has good hands

    Hope stipe can get the k.o

    You have some fundamental misunderstanding when it comes to the fight game, not surprising, since you appear to be from Cleveland, you probably live in a van by the river. Allow me to elucidate:

    Personalities and drama are what attract the casual fanbase, not the technical intrigue of the match-up itself. That shit is for hardcores, who are irrelevant. You're talking about the 90k or so suckers who buy every card headlined by MM.

    For DC vs. Stipe:

    Stipe: N/A (doesn't appear to speak English)
    Drama
    None.

    Prime Time was the closest the UFC ever got to 24/7...Much more interesting and it build up hype way better.

    Weird to see this thread pop...

    These comments further back up why I'm confused.

    TJ has one title defense (Soto on 15 minutes notice is generous to call a defense) and his last loss happens to also be to the guy that last beat MM. DJ being called the best fighter is really hard to wrap my head around, he was soundly beaten by Cruz and TJ can apparently make 125. DJ is the best fighter who is able to get down to the smallest weight class until he beats TJ or can prove 10lbs isn't an insurmountable obstacle for him.

    The winner of Stipe/DC would be the betting favourite against any other MMA fighter at any weight they would like to come in at. This is a real clash of titans, not some strange hypothetical exercise where because they aren't child-sized guys like DC aren't seen as incredibly talented athletes.
