    I think Gus or Rumble would beat him in a rematch. I know DC is great, but the Gus fight was a split decision and l don't think he can beat Rumble twice.

    Sure, it'll just take Fedor to drop to 205 and move to America to train with AKA for a year. Easy-peasy!

    It wouldn't surprise me if Gus or Rumble found a way in a rematch, maybe even Glover. But damn pretty much everyone at LHW is gonna have there hands full in a match against Cormier.

    I think that he is a very difficult match up for anyone at 205 but he isn't head and shoulders above the top contenders. I would set the over/under of successful title defenses going forward at 2.

    Gus is the only one with a realistic chance of beating DC at 205.

    Probably until he retires, which is close. He beats Rumble every time, Texeira isn't goign to do it. Gus can do it, but it's a time game at this point.

    I hope we get a trilogy fight with either rumble or gus. DC deserves a trilogy

    Just got that Glover feeling. Dude doesn't get enough credit. Great record with diverse finishes. He doesn't seem to look very good when he does it tho but the quality opponent wins are there.

    I don't consider Cormier the champion, honestly.

    After the performance vs anderoid, I'm slightly concerned that dc has lost too much motivation now that he knows he'll probably never get that rematch vs jean chodes.

    DC is getting old, he only has a couple of good years left IMO.

    Only tainted supplement Jones has a chance of beating Cormier..
    Unsupplemented Jones ? no chance.

    I think if Gus gets a win and gets another TS, he'll beat DC in the rematch.

    Rumble could too, but I like Gus's chances better

    Until he loses




    Seriously though. Rumble may get him with one big punch. Someone could get him with a slick sub. Someone could just have an overall better night.

    I think he's the best fighter at 205 (minus Jon Jones) in the world. I don't see anyone just outperforming him

    Him and Lawler's days are numbered as champs. Gus, Glover, Rumble and the influx of middleweight guys that are going to move up will be to much. I say at best he's going to have two.

    Oh there's always somebody that can beat you. Especially if you're getting up in age like Cormier.

    But I take these things a fight at a time. Something too many champs lately have forgotten about. Overlook anybody and there's a good chance you lose that belt.

    When he signs to fight I'll make up my mind about that fight.

    Would love to see Fedor fight DC. I would take DC at this point but it would be a fun fight.

    I think DC will be champ for 3 title defenses then lose.
