    He was slipping DC's punches and landing more. DC was struggling at range.

    DC was doing exactly what he wanted to do at range.

    Yeah... I'm guessing you are a DC fan lol? DC looked sluggish and flat footed (by his standards) at range until the eye poke. He looked MUCH crisper at lhw. In no way could any non bias person say DC looked good at range

    Bro DC landed some jabs and 1,2 at range. In fact I think DC landed the harder shot before KO. DC was putting himself in Stipes range. Those combos Stipe were throwing weren't landing. Stipe landed a crisp shot at the end of one those exchanges that drew a smirk from DC, but the rest was smoke and mirrors. Stipe was winning the fight slightly because of his aggression and takedown attempt, but that aggression is what allowed DC to snatch him up in the clinch.

    Neither wetter landing hard strikes much. Stipe was landing more and better though. You can pretend they were all glancing blows or missed all you want. He was landing better shots then DC.

    DC was being much better only on striking with eye pokes. He tried it really hard though.

    I'm not sure I'd take DC in striking yet even though he caught Stipe the first time

    Stipe KO'd Hunt, Arlovski, new K1 Werdum, Overeem and JDS consecutively

    I can't see DC running through that gauntlet of heavyweight strikers without panic wrestling or getting put to sleep

    I don't blame Stipe for panic wrestling against Francis, that guy is terrifying

    DC is better at eye pokes- that shit was intentional.

    Stipe has better boxing

    I know it sounds ironic after what happened in the last fight, but his boxing fundamentals are better. He can throw jabs, hooks, uppercuts, combos, etc. He can stick and move real well; just watch his fight with people like Roy Nelson. DC has faster hands, more power and better defense, however his overall technique isn't superior imo.

    He's taller, broader, longer, and younger. DC is better everywhere though, I suspect he wins the rematch
