Yoel hate aside, wouldn't DC-YOEL be an amazing competitive fight you'd love to see?

    I'd love to see DC in against a guy whose wrestling he actually has to respect as world class level.

    I think DC could carefully pick him apart from the outside, but it'd be interesting to see DC have to try to get off his back against a guy with top control like Yoel, who'd likely weigh 225 in the cage.

    Awesome fight for fans, even if they hate Yoel, IMO.

    Would be a boxing match... which could be entertaining. But doesn't sound like Cormier is at all interested.

    DC would manhandle him.

    It'd be fun though.

    Yoel has had three title fights in a row and missed weight in two of them. Just take a normal contenders fight.

    Lose 2 LHW fights, fight for HW title? At least Brock is a fmr. HW champ.

    How bout Yoel at least beat Mark Hunt first?

    Daniel would be thrown off by Yoel Romero training and being pals with Jon Jones. I got Romero by KO

    Big time, would love to see, but Yoel doesn't deserve it and DC won't take it.

    Shogun X DC is a much more intriguing fight tbh

    DC only wants squash matches like Shogun & Brock. He wants nothing to do with competition he is only interested in guys 10 years past their prime.

    Which is fine but when you are champ, let alone ChampChamp, as a fan I hold you accountable to defend against the best because thats what the belt represents.

    This is coming from a guy who thinks DC is GOAT btw.

    Great match

    I'd rather see an interesting/great match up that's undeserved vs a wack match that just has shit talking and "star power"

    My only issue with Yoel is; be professional and make weight.
