    He keeps saying that word. Every bit of offense in a fight is malicious, but he's the one guy who can say it and it kinda makes sense. He's fighting someone he doesn't like and he's had his borderline "dirty" moments in the past. Disclaimer: Personally I like seeing him do new things in the cage and I'm not talking about eye pokes.

    Who knows if he'll feel comfortable throwing oblique kicks, but with the reach difference, those things could work with DC trying to close the distance. Cormier spent a fair bit of time against the cage vs Mir/Nelson too and that's where Bones likes to mix it up. Anyone bold enough to predict a new technique? And what happens if he locks in a choke?

    He's probably the most creative fighter I've ever watched so I'm expecting some new techniques. As far as chokes go, I suspect he's really been working on his triangles off his back.

    He's already got eye pokes, oblique kicks, foot stomps, 12-6 elbows and is widely known as one of the dirtiest fighters in MMA. Shy of bringing in a chair, honestly I think he's out of material.

    Takedowns are THE deciding factor in this fight.

    After a short feeling out process, the first thing Cormier will do is try a takedown. If he fails to take him down, you will automatically see Jones throw those oblique kicks while staying at a distance. Only as the fight goes on and Cormier tires will Jones be more relentless and throw more ''malicious'' strikes.

    If Cormier takes him down with ease, that's a whole other story.

    I expect the showtime kick maneuver but instead a "showtime eye poke"

    He'll have been working his knees with Overeem. Given his frame (and DC's) we could well see someone getting Fujita'd.

    Definitely.

    We're going to see punches, kicks.... hell, even some elbows. JJ really is a magician in there!

    Wait a minute...

    I think Jones' will try and win this fight by doctor stoppage due to cuts. He's going to try and gash Cormier's forehead early so when on the bottom he can get his fingers up in it "trying to push Cormier's head away" to open it up more or hit it with elbows from his back. This will stop DC from taking Jones down because he can't stop Jones from grinding his cut and he wouldn't want the fight stopped because of it so it will then become a stand-up fight.

    DC has never been eyepoked by someone of JBJ's calibre before .
