    I'm worried about his takedown defense.

    And DC isn't worried about your punching power.

    His wrestling looked good against Jones, DC will most likely take him down a few times but he won't be blown out of the water.

    I know the matchup was made in an annoying Zuffa-style way..... but I'm super down for this fight from a fan perspective.

    I concur. Alex has been all but completely written off since AJ caught him, but this fight is awesome.

    Ridiculous he got a title shot after that destruction vs Rumble. He in not a number 1 contender. Dana White matchmaking sucks

    DC will take him down repeatedly and maul him on the ground. He should be worried.

    Ive kind of lost my interest in Gus, since his constant whining. But I dislike DC even more, so I hope gus wins and knocks off that smug ass smile DC has been carrying since he won the title.

    I can't fucking wait for this fight. Odds are definitely in DC's favour, but I'm excited to see Alex take this challenge on

    Gus has he best Tdd at LHW, he faced 3 great wrestlers in Davis, Jones and Hammil and they all had major problems trying to take him down. It will be no different with Cormier and Gus will pretty much defend everything. Cormier struggles to take guys down that have solid tdd and defensive wrestling.

    This is going to be a stand up fight.
