That fight wasn't a flash knockout like Cain vs JDS 1. He beat him convincingly in 4 out of 5 rounds, and Cormier, the Olympic wrestler, never completed a takedown(you have to establish control on the ground for it to count). The sooner the fight with Jones happens the better chance DC has, he is on a ticking clock, and as Belfort showed on the weekend, that clock stops for no man.As great as Jones has been thus far in his career, I just don't get the logic of some of these posts. I would agree that Chael Sonnen and post TRT-Vitor will never beat Jones, and would both be finished again in a rematch, and I would agree that Glover doesn't have the speed or athleticism necessary to do much better than he did in their first fight (losing a decision), but Cormier? He lost a decision, and even though he gassed after three rounds, he was never hurt or in danger of being stopped. His biggest loss was the psychological game that took place leading into that fight, imo. I always go back to JDS knocking Cain out in the first round, only to later be dominated and brutally beaten in the rematch, and again in their third fight.
