Probably my most anticipated fight since Conor's return
Why anticipate a foregone conclusion? The Pillsbury DC Boy is going to eat a buffet of body shots on his way to retirement, and will finish his career as the perpetual plus sized bridesmaid.

He should never have taken the first Stipe rematch. These god damn rematches. You know these cunts have spent the last two years just fighting each other? Two fucking years. It will be nearly three by the time Stipe actually fights someone new.

The MMA fanbase deserves coronavirus for sanctioning this rematch nonsense.

You think Stipe winning is a foregone conclusion? I don't. I don't even think he should be the betting favorite (currently even odds more or less).

DC has won 4/5 rounds against Stipe Miocic. Do you disagree with that?

DC has also said he's going to really focus on his wrestling this time, which at the very least will be interesting to watch.

Also, in the spirit of positivity, the undercard sucks ass, let's be honest.

A walkover busy fight for a carnival clown is not a PPV quality co-main event and the rest of the card is either nobodies or washed up has beens (JDS, Dodson, Miller).

You are correct that DC is the better overall fighter and won 4/5 rounds. But Stipe has learned that the body is a massive Achilles heel for DC.

DC also just looks really old recently. He won't have the energy to just lay n pray Stipe and if he tries, he will just gas out and get KOd anyway.

For me, DC's only chance is a KO in the first two rounds like the first fight. The wrestling gameplan is a bad idea.

As a fan of DC, i wish he would’ve retired when he said he was going to. He shouldn’t have fought Stipe the 2nd time and shouldn’t this time. I doubt he needs the money and with his legacy set he should’ve ridden off into the sunset. Now he’s likely to go out on a couple of losses to Father Time disguised as Stipe.

It will go down as one of the most baffling, idiotic decisions anyone in MMA has ever made.

He had nothing to gain, everything to lose and he did.

The small cage changes everything about this fight. I would have taken Stipe in a full-sized octagon, but without the space it favors the wrestler, who just happens to be an Olympian and one of the best to ever apply his wrestling to MMA. I think Stipe wins 7/10 when these two fight, but not here in the confined setting.

What is the over under on the amount of times DC adjusts/pulls up his shorts during the fight?
