    Look, I don't know about you guys, but I don't really see DC vs Stipe 2 being much different than the first. It's not like Stipe was picking him apart completely and just dominating him, he was getting tagged:

    He did have his moments in the fight

    but without kicks or extremely hard shots, putting DC is pretty much impossible.

    I honestly think the ideal scenario is this:

    Since Brock just signed with the WWE again, that would eliminate the idea of DC vs Lesnar in March.

    Jon Jones beats Gus at UFC 232 and becomes the LHW champion.

    Without Brock, DC decides to vacate belt because a fight vs Stipe doesn't do big numbers.

    He rematches Jones in march for the LHW belt and leaves the HW belt up for grabs

    It's understandable that Stipe wants that hematch, but he got KTFO in the first round. He doesn't hold the cards here.

    Daniel weighed 251 pounds against Lewis and that's probably with a 5-8 pound cut
    There is no way in hell he ever makes 205 again

    He did say that the only guy he will go back down to 205 for is Jon Jones

    im sure he would love to honestly, but at 40 years old he would need to completely change his life style to accomplish this .
    I'm not sure he has it in him

    You forgot the Dana factor, getting greedy and messing the flow.

    If Lesnar is indeed out of the picture. You would have to think Stipe gets Daniel next

    Will he vacate?


    Yep, just before he calls it a career.

    Doesn’t Cain get injured as soon as someone simply mentions his name regarding a potential fight?

    Stipe has a point in that Joanna and Cody got instant rematches, he has the most title defenses in UFC HW history, and he did DC a favor by taking all of the risk in giving DC a shot at his belt. Unfortunately life can be a bitch, DC is looking for an easy money fight to end his career, and he doesn't get along too well with the goof.

    I'd rather it be at heavy weight. But then again I don't wanna see DC lose to Jon for a 3rd time
