    Seems to be en vogue these days to try and diminish what DC has accomplished in MMA, so a little reminder for those of you drinking the koolaid:

    DC , a tubby short bloated LHW, viciously KO'd Stipe ( a legitimate HW who could never cut to LHW) while being undersized and approaching 40 yrs old.

    In the 2nd fight, Cormier lost because he suddenly decided that he was a lumpinee champ, instead of sticking to his bread and butter....wrestling. There's a reason why Stipe is ducking the trilogy so hard.

    Cormier, just like Fedor before him, made a career out of smashing HWs who outweighed him and outsized him in almost every instance. he's lost to 1 man in his career before Stipe, which is more than can be said for your favorite fighter.

    22 -2 record, more than half of them brutal finishes.


    You can f*ck right off with your "he was never that good" narrative, because if a guy who went 22 -2 while being undersized and out aged was never that good, what does that make your favorite fighter?


    DC, the short pudgy dude who KO'd all of your heroes, will always be one of the best to ever do it.

    Was never the real LHW champ. Cheated and eye poked his way to beat Stipe. Cheated/eye poked again in the rematch and still got stiffened by a near blind Stipe (who had to get eye surgery thanks to DC’s constant and blatant eye pokes).

    He's a great fighter, but in my eyes (forgive the pun) he tarnished his legacy in his last two fights with repeated eye pokes.

    To question his skill is just idiotic. He was the Olympic wrestling captain and entered MMA at 30 with no amateur bouts, he then went on to win their HW grand prix before entering the UFC and gaining two more world championships.

    Not only that, but carrying him out of respect.

    When your* first accomplishment was that DC is "a tubby short bloated LHW" you should probably rethink your argument.

    Except for the last few fights of blatant eye pokes - he did a great job overall in his career.


    ...and never had to make up a boatload of excuses for getting caught with any variety of performance enhancing drugs in his system - EVER !


    ** Unless you count Popeyes' chicken grease as 'enhancing' .?

    Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix champion
    UFC Light Heavyweight champion (but he was only 2nd best in the division, the best only while Jones rendered himself incapable of competing)
    UFC Heavyweight champion
    Absolutely demolished everyone except for the best of the best (Jones and Stiopic) and Gustafsson (who is just a terrible matchup for most wrestlers, especially short ones)
    Only losses are to the best of the best (and is 1-1 with one of those guys)

    His career is outstanding.

    DC is without a doubt one of MMA's all time greats! I am not a big fan of DC, and rooted against him when he fought Jones and Miocic, but I will give him all the credit in the world that he is/was a great fighter and a good person. The only man to ever win both LHW and HW UFC belts and the winner of the STRIKEFORCE HW tournament are great accomplishments for a guy that looks like he trains with Roy Nelson! An MMA Hall of famer for sure.:D

    At first I really liked the guy but he has been so deceptive, acting like a bullied kid against Jones, being like "I dont know if I'll give Stipe a rematch" when all signs were leading to a Brock fight then after he lost to Stipe acting like "you owe me a third fight".
    This and the fact that I believe he doesnt even like America

    His true record is 22-3.

    Record with top fighters (Rumble, Jones, Stipe, Barnett, Gus): 5-3

    It's pretty obvious when someone is looking for reasons to hate another man. This is one of those cases.

    And let's not forget the only unavenged loss involved opponent PED usage
