    Stipe vs DC 3 in Croatia would be good too.

    Ariel supports the fighters a lot and he knows his stuff, he's definitely onto something here.

    Let's do it in Cleveland baby! And they better warn DC about the eyepokes and instantly deduct points WHEN he starts poking/raking, because we know it is coming :p Stipe has had eye damage and is still recovering from the last poke session but hopefully he has almost fully healed that eye now. If there are no pokes then it will be a nice fight to decide who the best man is out of the two.

    Those eyepokes need to be treated seriously. Goddard dropped the ball in the first fight and herb in the second.

    These refs really need to put their ego aside sometimes

    don't personally really need to see this

    only interested if Stipe shows up to the weigh-ins wearing rec specs like Kurt Rambis or something

    How many times the same fight should take place, the last time was enough.

    Best of seven series is the way to go; first two fights out west, next three on the east coast, last two out west (if necessary).

    I knew he was Croatian but it sounded like he lived near Cleveland his whole life

    Yeah doing it in Cleveland is a no-brainer, which means it won't happen.

    Agreed with all his choices except Cruz. Cruz lost to #8 Cody Garbrandt, & if he beat Cejudo he would get hurt and clog the division even more. There are at least 4 or 5 better options for Cejudo.

    Stop trying to make 'Stipe' a star. He's not. He doesn't have the charisma or personality to take advantage of media.

    Hell on his last Embedded he went to a flea market sale in Cleveland & like 2 people knew him.

    Sounds like a good idea if DC-Stipe 3 is next.

    American. Born and raised in Cleveland.

    Immigrant mentality is where his Croatian heritage comes from.
