As a martial artist the most important is to stay in control of your emotions. Looking forward to smashing someone is one thing but after watching the weigh-ins, Cormier went completely crazy pacing up and down the stage (whereas Bones looked quite relaxed). I think at least 10 percent of his energy will be drained before the fight start, during the walk-in and the wait for Jones (and of course the hours/night before the fight). If I were Jones I'd wait as long as possible, let Cormier go crazy like he went crazy during the weigh-ins. Being pumped is one thing, but I think you're going to need all your energy saved up for that fight. He'll be pacing up and down the cage a few billion times before Jones arrives. If Cormier doesn't finish it in round 1 or round 2 Bones will run through him in the later rounds. Just an observation. I could be completely off. However, I don't think so.
