    Stipe is just salty his eye poke tactics backfired on him. He got poked back, ko'd and probably soiled himself

    This for me is the best fight of the summer. I can't think of a fight that tops it. Masvidal Askren was a skillful fight, Diaz Pettis is good, but DC Stipe is probably the most highly skilled one so far.

    This seems like do or die for Stipe. If he doesn't win this fight, he might retire. Otherwise, he would have to work his way back to a title shot against whoever the champ will be in 2020.

    Stipe just has to stop over extending with the telegraphed 1-2's. He could throw the jab and throw a left leg head kick. Look how low DC is there

    DC definitely didn't get lucky with the punch though. Stipe is going to have to throw different shots because nobody with a basic skillset will be able to beat DC.

    I thought stipe was this cold, bad motherfucker, humble, tough man’s man before the dc fight. Not so much now.

    I will pray to gawd that Stipe gets koed stiff again. Hopefully in a much more brutal fashion. Crazy to think I was once a fan.

    Stipe is salty and kind of a dope, even by MMA standards. Don’t know why some people like him as a character.

    He handled the loss Ronda-esque.

    He should throw some of that salt in Cormier’s eyes. He might win.

    Wouldn't call it a lucky shot. Certain fighters tend to drop their hands when breaking the clinch, Miocic is one of them and DC capitalized on it. If that was lucky, then Jon's HK KO was also lucky.

    DC needs to iron out that bad habit of his. He’s been doing it forever. A taller fighter might get away with it but he is leaving himself so vulnerable.

    Not unless DC eyepokes him first.... again

    Seriously, eyepoke by DC leading to KO. Eyepoke by Struve leading to KO.

    Stipe needs to wear protective goggles or perhaps go against guys that don't go knuckle deep into his eye sockets

    That's one of my favorite fighters, Stipe. DC is cool but I like Stipe more.

    Stipe almost reaching Luke levels of salt.

    He's one of the best HWs ever, but DC beat his ass.

    Seems to me that DC won the first fight after picking his eyes, so I am picking Stipe in a rematch.

    It will be a fun fight.

    I like Stipe but man, DC has that clinch upper cut all day. Every time they get close enough he has that punch. Stipe might get the left hook in while DC is throwing the uppercut, but here's the thing: How many left hooks will DC withstand before folding? Because we already know how many Stipe can take before going down and that answer is 1.

    How are so many people crying about the DC eye poke when stipe did it multiple times? It wasn’t the eye poke the led to his poor defense, stipe always had a problem with keeping his chin down when he exits the clinch, he got popped multiple times in their fight when exiting the clinch
