    No offense to DC, but I think he's ready to retire. After tonight he proved he doesn't belong in the UFC.

    Jons bodywork was pretty good, landed some vicious knees and punches to the body.

    It's not trolling, the guy looked slow and out of shape. He was gassed by the 3rd round. It also became evident that he has never been hurt in his career. He admitted it in this fight. I think we found out that DC is tough as long as he's winning, but the second he actually starts getting hit he breaks mentally. This is a tough business, and it's not for everyone.

    C'mon man, he is up there in age but I don't see other LHW fighters doing what JBJ did to him. He can still compete with the best of them.

    Edit: Dammit I think you got me with your trolling. Nice.

    Still trolling....the dubs are obvious. Saying DC should consider retiring is incredibly stupid.

    Cormier should be looking to Velasquez now, use him as an inspiration to come back after a crushing loss.

    He's 35 years old, and it's unlikely that his "game" is going to improve at this stage in his career. There's really nothing left for him to do unless he wants to be a gate keeper? But why put yourself through the weight cuts for that, I mean damn.

    I feel bad for the guy but damn....he needs to keep his chin up, sit up straight and sound off. He is showing a lot of emotional vulnerability here and while it is human, it is a little off putting to see Helwani cater to his low state by talking softly and with condolence.

    As much as I think JBJ is crass and lacking class, he has a valid point in saying he doesn't feel bad for DC because "this is combat".

    Man, he was stuttering during part of that interview.

    That's rough.

    Be interesting to see how he rebounds.

    Cormier got class. But we always knew that.

    A streak of domination of top 10 HWs halted by a dec to the LHW GOAT, and he's ready to retire? Sherdog at it's finest everyone, get it while it's hot!
