    Half way through the Nelson fight I realized that Cormier was predictable as fuck.

    Apart from wall & stall, he was moving to his right most of the time, avoiding Big Country's big right hand. But he would predictably stop and move left for 2 or 3 seconds all the time and then return to moving right.

    Right right right right right right right left - repeat . If Country or his corner had seen this pattern, Cormier could have easily been put to sleep with a left or right hook.

    Too bad Roy doesn't have a cornerman like you.

    I think Gustafsson will beat him if they fight next. he has the speed, striking and TDD to do it.

    Good thing for Cormier that Nelson's style is much more predictable -- throw overhand right, get punched in face, repeat.

    Yeah I'm sure he would have easily won with you in his corner. Sucks for Big Country that you're just some Sherdog nobody.
