Firstly I'll say 3 things. That DC was on his way to winning the rematch against Stipe via points. Secondly that DC didn't account nor adjust for that body shots and they took their toll on him. Thirdly that DC will change his game plan for the scheduled upcoming trilogy fight to what it originally was which was a lot more wrestling based and win the trilogy fight. DC like many wrestlers who gain decent stand up fell in love with his striking game and forgot much of his wrestling game. Obviously DC and his camp knew that TD To GnP was his best bet to beat Miocic and that was their strategy but DC failed to follow his game plan and it cost him. He won't do it again. Some say that DC won't be able be able to keep a wrestling pace for 5 rounds but I don't think Stipe will be able to keep the pace for 5 rounds under DC. Its always more tiring for the guy on bottom. I think if DC wins the trilogy fight it will show that the rematch was more of a fluke by DC getting overconfident and that it is not a case of Stipe actually being a better fighter or close to DC. I think Cormier will either finish Stipe again or win a very dominant decision proving that DC is far better than Stipe and his last fight was an outcome that is likely to not happen again.
