Log in to Reply kryptonite May 20, 2012 no evans vs jones was boring i enjoyed that very impressed with cormier will definatly be in the ufc looks the real deal that slam was unreal Log in to Reply Powertele May 20, 2012 How is two heavyweights going 5 strong rounds boring. I prefer this battle of a 2 minute knockout. Everyone loves a knockout, but now we know Barnett and Cormier have distance in their games. We knew Josh could go, but Cormier brought it. Log in to Reply murell May 20, 2012 I would like to see Both of these guys in the U.F.C. Log in to Reply MuffDiggler May 20, 2012 Thought Barnett looked a little flat-footed, but congrats to Cormier, tough win for sure. Barnett is a tough mofo. Log in to Reply Kimbo May 20, 2012 Cormier! Bravo! Log in to Reply Beast w/ 8 Limbs May 20, 2012 Oh yeah. That was totally worth waiting a yr and a half for. Log in to Reply jdogg May 20, 2012 @ chitdik – No, YOU’RE boring. But congrats on being born, I guess. Log in to Reply just0 May 20, 2012 @chitdick you thought this fight was boring? I thought it was awesome! Also originally thought Barnett would have smashed Cormeir. Man was I wrong. Log in to Reply pk May 20, 2012 really? thought this was one of the best heavyweight fights I’ve seen in a while. and Dang, Cormier has improved tons. Log in to Reply keulniss May 20, 2012 Hey Bruno, I made 2k on cormier, but unfortunately I got it at -105 a couple hours before fight time instead of when the line opened at +140. Damn, I gotta get better at predicting line movement. Did you make any money on it? Bruno: Not that fight. I was pulling for Josh but I though DC would win. I only bet Gilbert Melendez vs. Josh Thomson would go the distance. Made around $1200 That was my only bet. Log in to Reply dirty May 20, 2012 Cormier was impressive. I do think Barnett breaking his hand in the first round had a huge impact on the fight. Log in to Reply Fab May 20, 2012 Good fight but Cormier pulled some BS in the last round by taking it easy and coasting his way to a win. If you can beat the hell out of a guy for four rounds then you can beat the hell out of him for five. Otherwise a very impressive showing. Log in to Reply benjamin May 20, 2012 Cormier may end up in the UFC… Probably. Lets not forget Barnett was ousted from the UFC for PED’s… He’s not gonna get an invite back I believe. Log in to Reply benjamin May 20, 2012 Boldenone I think it was… Log in to Reply benjamin May 20, 2012 …. Of course this year DOES make a decade since that happened. (UFC 36)Barnett could make a reappearance. I’ve seen stranger things. Log in to Reply Robert May 20, 2012 Pfft Fab, Cormier had it in the bag. Had he gone all out in the fifth he had everything to lose. He beat the crap out of Barnett for four rounds and if he couldn’t finish him in 20 minutes a smart fighter would know not to force it in the fifth with victory and the belt a certainty. Much easier being an armchair fighter. Nothing to lose. Log in to Reply chitdik May 20, 2012 Yeah I thought it was borring I enjoyed JJ and evans much more..Josh didnt do shit PERIOD! SO yeah it was phukin borring! one sided piece of chit fight… Log in to Reply mmafan May 20, 2012 I was very excited for this fight and it did not disappoint. I felt that Barnett should have had the edge due to his vast experience and proven toughness, but Cormier had all the makings of being a very talented fighter that just might pull off the upset and he did, perfoming stellarly and despite having the disadvantage in height and reach…he showed just how talented he is. I am sure Dana is excited about Cormier being the victor, rather than Barnett, and I fully expect DC’s next fight to be in the UFC…as a fan, this is awesome!! Log in to Reply mmafan May 20, 2012 I disagree if a fighter “breaks his hand” and continues to fight. From a fans point of view it either sounds like a cop out, or it stands to take away from the victory of the opponent, in this case DC. It would be better for both fighter and fan, if you really break your hand..to stop the fight, have a doctor confirm the broken hand,give the victory to the other guy, and set up a legitimate re-match, otherwise it just sounds like a cop-out…bad on you Barnett, if you are going to decide to keep fighting, then dont cry about a broken hand after you get your ass kicked. Log in to Reply KouNTa KuLCHa May 20, 2012 Good fight. Knew Cormier would win. Been sayin’ this dude was bad, and most of you laughed it off. Who’s laughing now??! All the way to the bank baby! Muhuhahahaha! 😉 ♠ Log in to Reply southiejimmy May 20, 2012 cormier basically just garaunteed himself a job in the ufc. not because he won, but because he won against barnett,and in convincing fashion. the ufc gods will look upon him favorably because of this. Log in to Reply c..kid May 20, 2012 great five round heavy weight fight?….wait really dam cormier is goooood Log in to Reply PitfighterZ May 20, 2012 Both fighters broke their hands in the first round. Tough mofos for sure! Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick May 20, 2012 @Robert Well said.And we can guess Fab would’ve gave shit to Cormier if he would’ve lost because he went for broke in the last round. Log in to Reply Tempted May 20, 2012 This was boring. 5 round fights are great when the smaller guys do it, they hold a higher pace and throw a million times more strikes. When heavyweights go 5 rounds the fights are always pretty do-nothing. Even my favorite 5 round HW fight was boring, Couture vs Sylvia. Log in to Reply JiuJitsublkblt May 20, 2012 Someone named Josh Barnett just got butt raped. Cormier needs to fight Junior Dos Santos next; mark my words Cormier will be champ for a long time in the UFC. Log in to Reply Victoria, BC --Canada May 20, 2012 Watched it live…. great fight…. same with the Thomson/Melendez fight….. great two fights. Log in to Reply axl782 May 21, 2012 nice fight, but DC running at the last 15 seconds, was a little bit disappointing, the crowd was booing… is not the best way to finish it… Log in to Reply wow May 21, 2012 I didnt think the fight was boring, i was rather impressed with both fighters. Log in to Reply Fab May 21, 2012 @ Robert I said nothing about going all out. He didn’t need to do that but he stopped fighting completely. He pinned Barnett to the cage and ran for the last few minutes. At no point was Barnett a real threat. You’re in the cage to fight from bell to bell. It’s your job as a fighter. No excuse. You don’t really think this will fly in the UFC do you? Log in to Reply dreameracer1 May 22, 2012 u gotta love the little guy beat up a full grown professional fighter like Barnett. awesome fight with the biggest heart.
