    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.

    That's a pretty good way to describe them. Fight distributers. Funny thing is that Dana for so many years trashed Boxing and it's style of promoting and how they threw away the sport, and Dana has done everything possible in the last two years to make MMA just like boxing as a sport and it's practically there now. Dana even has this other chapter he is trying to do UFC boxing with. How would he ever have the time for that shit? Dana deep down has always wanted to be a boxing promoter. He isn't even an MMA purist anymore, he's so pathetic.

    Dana has fallen far since his early days

    Pretty compelling main event. Having a hard time imagining Cormier being able to counter all of Stipe's advantages in size, strength, and general athleticism, but he's beaten bigger stronger guys before. Took me a long time to get on board with Cormier, but I do appreciate his skills, especially in light of what I feel has been a vacuum left in the LHW division due to all the events surrounding Jones.

    Obvious wrestling advantage for Cormier, but how heavy is he going to come in? Miocic will have height and reach, which served Jones well against Cormier. I know Cormier can punch, he's a strong guy, but I believe Stipe is a better, more technical striker, with better KO power. Seem to remember Miocic knocking someone out with a jab while moving backwards...

    Watched TUF tonight, (excellent fight, Diamond/Cucciniello) and one of the kids fighting in the finale said "Stipe early, or Cormier late," when asked who he favored. Sounded like a pretty good guess to me.

    First, good to see ya bud. DC is the better wrestler, or at least has the better pedigree but he struggled badly against Jones in that area and had a very difficult time taking him down. Stipe hits a lot harder than Jones and has very good TDD as well. I don't know if DC coming in heavy is going to be a good thing for him, I would say it would hamper his cardio.
