    DC lost. Let's get that out of the way. He wilted and he got finished.

    But I've seen multiple threads and comments that make it seem like Stipe is hands down the better fighter despite the fact that they're 1-1.

    This a problem I've noticed in alot of rematches. The Wand/Rampage rematches come to mind. Wand destroyed Rampage twice in their first two fights before they fought later in their careers but because of recency bias, people pretend they're on even footing.

    Same thing happens in all sports now. At least all that I follow, which is MMA and Football(NFL).
    There's a big "what have you done for me lately" attitude. Win 9 in a row and you're the shit that might never lose, then lose 1 and the sky is falling and you're garbage. People have short memories.

    DC pulled a stunt. Good luck landing a bomb Stipe has no idea is coming again.

    No but it is biased. Your thread title states that "DC destroyed Stipe" and you start the thread by casually mentioning that DC simply "lost".

    You also failed to mention that DC clearly and blatantly cheated in both fights. Did you forget that?

    DC got obliterated in the end, but are people pretending that that slam was anything but badass?

    Watching DC pick up huge guys like Barnett, Jones, Stipe and Gus with little effort is amazing.

    That dude's core strength is insane.

    It was a nice win but tainted by the intentional flick to the eye

    Holy shit and you say that I'm biased???

    There is no evidence that DC has cheated in those fights. The eye poke that people talk about in the 1st fight was proceeded by Stipe doing the same thing

    DC's style is just keeping his hands up. When you are tired, you can clumbsy and sloppy. It defintely was not intentional.

    Apparently he only won because of eye pokes now. Some people say stupid things. You can debate it, and be right on all your points, and still be wrong for even engaging in that debate.

    One isolated incident which looks like a slip of the hand while framing out is the "same thing" as persistent behavior impelling the ref to warn DC multiple times and culminating in a finger flick launched directly at Stipe's eyeball. Mm-hmm, no bias there.

    The way I see it, Stipe destroyed DC. All technical ability aside, DC had a lot more to lose coming into this. Stipe is just a badass firefighter and he put DC down. Cormier didn't adapt to the body shots he was absorbing (I counted 12) and then got absolutely punished against the cage. Bing, bang, boom. Stipe got clipped coming out of the clinch in their first fight, I wouldn't call that destruction. Cormier's emotions are destroyed here.

    I agree, and DC was even winning the fight for the first three rounds. Props to Stipe for staying collected, but there’s nothing to suggest that he’s the better fighter. DC could very well take the rubber match if it ever materializes. Heck, I’d probably even put my money on him.
