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'm not worried but Gus should be
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.
you train 6-7 days a week 2-3 times a day and still have 0 legitimate wins
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.
Lets compare their wins
-James Te Huna
-Vladimir Matyushenko (former UFC title challenger)
-#8 Shogun Rua (former Pride MW and UFC LHW Champ)
-#7 Jimi Manuwa
-#1 Anthony Johnson (former UFC title challenger)
-#10 Pat Cummins
-Dan Henderson (former Pride WW/MW champ, Strikeforce LHW champ, UFC MW tournament winner, UFC title challengerx2)
-#12 Roy Nelson (Tuf winner)
-#10 Frank Mir (former HW champ, UFC title challenger x4)
-#8 Josh Barnett (former HW champ)
-#11 Antonio Silva (UFC title challenger)
-Jeff Monson (UFC title challenger)
What's your definition of legitimate win?
Sherdog at its finest, I bet you are great at parties.
I'm worried he's gonna cry again after
Rankings don't matter
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.
