    I thought Jones was supposed to be ragdolled by Cormier because he ragdolled Hendo and Barnett; because Gustafsson took him down in the first round. I thought Jones couldn't take him down?

    He barely seemed to use it. Really seemed to be content to hug it out. Then when Jones took him down a bunch he used all his energy just to prove he could take Jones down as well instead of attempting to win the fight. Just brute force tried to slam him.

    Bring on Gustafsson again

    Yeah i thought Cormier was too strong and so much better standing and wrestling JOnes that he would dominate him... lol

    Cormier should eat his pride and ask Jones for some wrestling tips

    Jones and GSP are the best mma wrestlers of all time.

    Tell an 8 year old to take down an adult. Size difference was too much.

    Not overrated but Jones is just that much better, DC lacked a few of the simple stuff otherwise he could have made it a little bit different

    Cormier fought at heavyweight. I thought that since he had been doing that to guys that tall and miuch bigger than jones all you dc lovers said he would do it to jones with ease

    Height difference gave DC no leverage to lift when he had underhooks going for takedowns i would assume.

    And now that DC has lost, the haters will hop on the Gus/Rumble bandwagon.
