    And there goes our chance to see Nate vs Dustin for 25 minutes

    I hope they are paying DC a bazillion dollars for this, because he's risking alot against a guy that could end him with one shot. And its even more likely since he knows his only chance is to land the bomb.

    So now we’re getting two squash matches instead of a Diaz-Poirier barn burner?

    Cormier is going smash Lewis. The man just said himself that he wasn’t ready for that level. Now he’s getting it on short notice? This has to be bullshit.

    Before he came back, I thought Lewis was catching a fairly solid beating by Volkov and aside from the fact that I don't see him being competative in the least against DC here, how the heck is he getting cleared so quickly? Plus he's got all the issues with his back and admitted cardio failings and taking such a quick turnaround, just sounds like they're putting him in a position to get beaten the fuck up.

    Good for him making the payday and all, but I don't think he stands a solitary chance even with a full camp at relative health and this one here comes across as a body they want DC to crush.

    He did catch a solid beating from Volkov. This fight is stupid.

    Lewis was just given a 30 day suspension which makes him ineligible for Nov 3rd. I’m assuming the UFC is booking this fight based on him being cleared early, but that’s a pretty big risk to take with the main event of your MSG show.

    This fight is not even interesting to me, especially with Derrick's short turnaround. I guess Dana thinks Diaz v Poirier is not a good main event. That fight should be 5 rounds regardless.

    Anthony Johnson is faster and hits harder with a similar reach, and Cormier smashed him — twice.

    Garbage day. Shit fight for DC to take other than for a payday. If he loses somehow he’s fucked himself. Big boy packs a wallop.

    Yeah but Lewis has heart which Johnson lacks,

    Anthony gave up twice.

    I don't blame Lewis for taking the fight.

    I'm torn because I like both fighters.

    Damn.

    Hoping for Lewis, seems like a cool guy, but Cormier is going to wrestle the F out of Lewis. Love Comrier the fighter, but if he gets his jaw broken, we won't have to hear him on the broadcast for awhile.

    Cormier will be a near-1000 favorite come fight night.

    I must say I don’t see this lasting a round, but if the beast does best DC.... I’ll laugh my ass off. Will never happen, DC is better fucking everywhere, every fucking where
