DC has been pretty vocal about how much emotion he has tied into his fight with Jones. He's made comments like "I can't live knowing that Jon is better than me at this sport so I have to win". My question is this: Is Cormier setting himself up to become the next Rashad? Remember how much emotion and weight Rashad put into his fight with Jones? And then after he lost he all but retired. Rashad lost more than a fight that night, he lost his will also. Rashad was never the same and has pretty much become a retired fighter, fighting only here and there to collect checks while putting on halfhearted performances. I really think Cormier will enter Rashad Territory if he loses. If Jones wins, I think it's safe to say we've seen the best of DC and he will go into a tailspin and rapid decline.
