    DC knows better than to take fighting advice from keyboard warriors.

    Fedor was awesome. I think a fight with DC or Jones would be interesting as hell.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if either beat the Fedor of 2004/5.

    Yes, thats the other reason I don´t need to argue with you.. Everytime I found a Fedor thread, @Typrune Goatley already destroyed you. And I don´t kick a man when he´s down. hahaha

    "JBJISGOAT famous"?

    A very common muay thai tactic. You're best either staying out of range (which is hard with a guy jones length) or staying tied up giving no space which is also hard because he avoids it like aids.

    He doesn't need to submit him.

    He can also sweep and reverse position like he did against ADCC champion Arona multiple times.

    Fedor fought TRT Hendo in 2011

    DC fought TRT-less Hendo in 2014

    This is the part DC should know...Javier was a world champ at kickboxing, right?

    Creating a wall with your arm through your raised leg is something anyone who does Muay Thai training is taught. Granted, if you get kicked in the arm, it still hurts, but it's way better than getting shin'd to the head.

    People are saying Jones set up that head kick, but the wall is the conservative thing to do if you aren't sure where the kick is going.

    Supposing that he were able to sweep DC, he’s sure as not holding him down on the ground. Also, not for nothing, Arona only narrowly lost that fight.

    Fan (or at least appreciative) of both DC and Fedor, and the comparison is stupid. JJ gave DC a lot more to worry about than CC did Fedor. DC had to worry about kicks, knees, straights, hooks, elbows from both sides all the time. Fedor basically just had to defend against / counter the left kick and left straight, and probably spent half of his training camp practicing just that.

    Did any of them fight Jones? It wasn’t the head kick defense that failed Cormier it was everything else that set up the kick stupid.

    It would be hard to hold down Cormier but Fedor would throw a few bombs as DC stands and then they would be back to their feet where Fedor wants to be.

    DC can't hold Fedor down the entire fight. Fedor will escape or sweep or submit DC. At some point they will be back on the feet where Fedor would outstrike him. I don't think it would be easy. DC has a great chin and heart but the striking gap is huge and DC couldn't really threaten Fedor with too much on the feet or ground.

    DC has always had bad kick defense. Hes done that weird thing where he hops backwards while he reaches for the kick bit also leans into it. It's surprising he hasn't eaten more headkicks but it is lhw....
