In hindsight, should Cormier have worked the body instead of uppercuts/head shots?

    Cormier was clearly headhunting for most of the fight.

    He did land some solid shots to the head early in the fight, but I wonder if Cormier would have been better off for a 5-round fight by concentrating on slugging the body in close quarters, a la Maldonado.

    It's much easier to land strikes on the body up-close - the target is huge, and it tends to bleed the target's gas tank.
