    As good as Jon is, cementing a legacy with wins over guys with HUGE reach disadvantages is not as impressive as a small guy being able to easily throw around men bigger than him, like Mir, Big Foot and Barnett.

    Jon displays the ability of using his size advantage very well, but DC displays pure, flawless and brutal technique. And i repeat: TECHNIQUE! He doesn

    I will agree that the JBJ vs DC will be an exciting fight to see. I would rather see that match up than the Gus rematch (although Gus does rate a rematch). We'll just have to see which of the two DC ends up fighting for the title.

    I think they are both equally impressive, in different ways. Cormier doesn't resort to the dirty stuff, which I can't stand and don't think Jon needs, but he keeps doing it. I do think Cormier has the tools to beat Jones, can't wait for them to lock horns!

    Strenght advantage over who? Big Foot? Barnett? Mir? Any of those guys are naturally bigger than Cormier. They certainly didn

    DC is an impressive fighter however he hasn't won a title of the prestige of a UFC belt he has won the strikeforce heavyweight grand prix ... and he has won other heavyweight championships from KOTC xtreme MMA and defended that title once ... however UFC LHW division is a different animal all together ... Daniel does have the superior Wrestling without question ... but the reach would be an issue for him ..

    Cormier has better wrestling, boxing and his kicks when he uses them are shockingly good considering how little experience he has. So I agree: he is more impressive, and even made the exact same thread a while back.

    But Jones never won because he was the best striking or wrestling skills - he won because he is the smartest guy in the cage, using the right tactics, making the right split second decisions, minimising risk... that quality champions have. Let's see if it works against Gus and Cormier.
