    Do we have an immediate re-match or does Henderson get the title-shot?

    I mean to say, if Hendo lands an "H-Bomb" in the first exchange, before anything else happens, does Cormier get a re-match or does Hendo get the winner of Gus/Jones?

    This scenario wouldn't necessarily prove anything other than Henderson has K.O. power, which we already knew.

    Dana promised a title shot to Hendo if he took the fight and won iirc. Dana's word is his bond.

    Why would Cormier get a rematch?

    Has there ever been an immediate rematch that wasn't a title shot?

    Even if Cormier gets dominated people will say he deserves a fight with Jones it seems.

    Of course, he was a top ranked HW so that automatically makes him a contender at LHW, because HW are the best fighters in the world based on size :wink:

    This is what I'd prefer. Hate immediate re-matches. For the title or not. It cheapens the first fight and any build up to it.

    Well Henderson's a huge underdog and if he won via K.O. before anything really happened people would think it doesn't prove he's the better fighter. Personally I dis-agree with that sentiment because, if it happened, you knock someone out that proves you were the better fighter because he didn't stop you from knocking him out. Whether it means you're the better fighter over all or just for that night will be what's debated on if Cormier should get a re-match or not.

    Why would Cormier get a rematch if he gets KOed in the opening minute? That would mean that Hendo decisively beat him. Immediate rematches happen when the outcome is arguable.

    As a Cormier fan, why would he get a rematch if he gets knocked out? lmao

    If Hendo wins he fights for the title next.

    In the case of Hendo, it wouldn't be a rematch with DC, because it'd surprise no one that Hendo Hendo-Bombs his opponent, and so would not be considered a fluke.

    Though of course many would be aghast that this happened to DC on this day, May 24.

    If you know, I will have to eliminate you
    If DC gets KOed in the first minute i will laugh my ass off because of all the DC nuthuggers and their crying. Then reality will set in as DC is the only savior from the jones curse. And i will be sad.

    He's clearly one of the best LHW's...and in case you havent noticed - it's not what you've done but what you can do. It's not how many wins, or how good you've looked. It's how much money you can make. But really, if DC wins who else deserves to be in line behind Gus?



    Nobody.

    The nuthuggers have a right to ride them nuts. Only one judge has ever scored a round against the man.
