I'm sure DC will have his mind right for this rematch, his focus should be razor sharp. He already knew he had issues last fight so it's not like there isn't a chance that he keeps his weight lower, earlier

 

I'm sure DC has heard about all of the same news updates that we have regarding California

 

Of course the cut could be an issue, I just also believe that there's more than a slight chance he takes improved precautions to be as healthy as possible for the cut. I'm almost 100% sure this rematch is basically his life focus and has been since he lost the first time

 

I don't see him taking any chances on his weight nor being undisciplined during camp

I just remember allllll that **** talking DC was throwing out there before the fight.......

and didnt back up 1 word of it laugh.gifeyes.gif

"If I want to take jon jones down 100 times, Ill take jon jones down 100 times"

Did DC even win a round? Wasnt it like 4-1 or something? Gotta rewatch but I clearly remember Jon making DC look like a rookie in the clinch/grappling, straight took that dood out to sea and drowned his ***, one of Jons easier wins IMO

First 3 rds were very close. I had it 3-2 jones but dc standup and experience as well as confidence has improved since..jones meanwhile been busy w extra curricular activities

And he was criticized for fading in the 4 and 5th in the jones fight..and showed the ability to overcome that against gus after getting dropped

Not to cape for DC but he was an Olympian, member of ATT and undefeated going into the fight.

He was gassed and feeling himself. He probably thought his wrestling, dirty boxing and clinch game would neutralize JBJ.

A few lines of coke and several takedowns by JBJ later, he was humbled.

DC definitely gassed in rounds four and five. He wasn't ready for an athlete the caliber of JBJ.

Has he shown "anything" since then? Tough to answer. He's won every bout. He gritted out Gustafson. He survived hammers from Rumble.

I listened to this week's ESPN's Five Rounds podcast. DC brought up some good points about JBJ possibly cheating; using PEDs for a minute.

Regardless, I think the both of them have a lot to prove in the rematch.

DC's claim as LHW champion and a top pound-for-pound fighter can be validated with a win over JBJ.

If JBJ wins, it turns a new page on his recent issues.

Honestly, if JBJ wins his belt back. What is there really for him at LHW? He's beaten everyone.

Gus = #4 LHW (possibly falling to #5 if he loses to Glover).

He got knocked da fock out by Rumble in his country. And admittedly, he lost barn burners to JBJ and DC.

He could definitely be the Bellator LHW champion though. And he also has a win against Manuwa.

Gus rematch if both win. First fight was so close it deserves a 2nd.

If he wins that, off to HW.

Dj seems to be trying to find a way out of a match against tj

Streak seems very important to dj, he probably wants that guaranteed win lol
post #40097 of 40260
UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley tells me his is willing to face Demian Maia in his next title defense, and that Maia deserves the shot with his seven-fight win streak, but says potential fights against Nick Diaz and Georges St-Pierre are "more real than you guys realize," and could force Maia to take a "back seat" for a little bit. Woodley would like to fight in July.

Owners don't want no Maia and woodley in a title fight lol. Fans seem to dislike them in/and/or out of the cage

Diaz or Gsp would be perfect but Gsp ain't seem ready to fight in July. I also wonder if nick really wants to cut to 170 anymore
post #40099 of 40260
woodley just needs to shut up and fight. Keeps wanting big names, make yourself the big name. Fighters keep relying on the names of other fighters instead of figuring out how to make themselves popular.

It's fine for everyone else to talk about their worth except for the black man mean.gif

Maia = boring. Simple as that. I get the man is amazing when it comes to bjj. But who wants to see him jump on woodleys back all match long.
NO THANKS!

Mighty Mouse isn't trying to see TJ. But wants to headline PPV? LOL OK!
post #40102 of 40260
Like someone said he definitely wants to get the record first for most consecutive title defenses. There's no one left in the division and no one cares about the other fighters anyway. Fresh matchups for him if he moves up.

Maybe. Maybe not. Rockhold and Bisping have been getting panned lately for trying to maneuver into lucrative fights. I do think Woodley gets extra hate, though. Not necessarily because he's black but who knows what the critics' motivation stems from

3 finishes in his last 5 fights, and one of those decision wins against Gunnar in a pure clinic. No thanks indeed

Gallagher talks and speaks EXACTLY like a young Conor :rollin

 

It's literally too much :rollin

 

They didn't censor the "p-word" (kitty) when Gallagher was talking about McKee :rollin

 

HILARIOUS 

 

I hope Gallagher and McKee keep winning, very promising fighters

Yah, Daley just aint it anymore. Rory had the skill set to neutralize Daley's one-dimensional tactics

 

Hey, set up Daley vs Page. It'll be a fun fight, build up and all

 

Don't wanna see Daley vs anymore wrestlers

 

Rory's chick :eek
