Fedor got KO'd by a MW... get over it.
It seems like you are only looking at one side of the equation.
Yes, while Cormier walked through highly ranked Heavyweights AND walked through LHW's (even legends like Dan Henderson)
Jon Jones has never fought anyone like Cormier. He has fought mostly guys with bodytypes that are able to suck down to MW (Machida, Belfort, Sonnen) And guys with nowhere near the level of wrestling that Cormier brings (Gustaffson, Texiera, Rampage)
Hes never fought a bigger guy with Olympic level wrestling.
Neither of them have beat anyone that closely resembles the other fighter, so your reasoning for why the odds should be greater is actually pretty foolish reasoning.
Cain and Jones haven't fought at 205 or any weight. Why is this so relevant?
Who is Cain indeed.
Let's not get TOO carried away here. It's a huge fight. I have been wanting to see this fight for at least 2 years. Even before DC dropped to LHW. But, let's not lose grip on perspective. History of the world? Really?
I agree with his analysis.
Everyone can punch a guy who's on all four with his back turned. Fedor won the mano-a-mano fight, knocking Hendo on his ass.
And yes, Hendo probably should've been disqualified for illegal strikes, even if the first (legal) strike knocked Fedor down. Fedor knocked Hendo down first. Might as well have stopped the fight there, then.
It was nice that Hendo was able to use the cage to reverse Fedor, but considering Fedor wasn't used to fighting in a cage, it wasn't that impressive TBH.
Fedor is a natural MW himself. They fought at HW.
Its pretty easy to see that the first punch Hendo through after escaping and taking Fedor's back was the one that knocked Fedor out. Fedor faceplanted after that, then came the back of the head shots that helped wake him up.
Hendo legitimately KOed Fedor. I dont see how this is disputed so much...
Thats not a flash ko then
you know fedor is 6ft and fought at 231 pounds, hes like cormier in that he shouldve cut to lhw but never a mw
"We talkin' bout practice!"
Nam Phan picked Cormier. Fucking kiss of death right there
Yea I got it.
