UFC 241: Cormier vs. Miocic 2

Cannot wait for this!!! usual times 11.15 1.0 3.0






Can stipe avenge that loss?
how good is costa?
Can nate beat pettis after 3 years out?

3 great fights on paper and all three have questions to answer.


I think pettis will take diaz with leg kicks and superior speed unless pettis starts brawling with Nate, possible given the bad blood between the two.

My head says cormier and it's hard to shout against him but I'd like to see stipe back on top given it's only a matter of time before dc retires.


Costa has looked the part albeit against much lesser guys, the acid test comes here in the form of romero who's as good as there is in the division.
I'm going with romero on this one

heinisch has looked pretty good so far and is favourite to beat brunson, everytime I think of brunson I think he has lost a lot of fights but out of his 7 losses 6 were to souza twice, adesanya, silva, whittaker and romero but his tactics at times leave little to be desired (whittaker)
This probably won't be one of the more entertaining fights on the card

Sandhagen looks like a guy going places, think he'll get the better of accuncao and yusuff looks like a good prospect.


The early/prelim cards look pretty weak compared to other numbered events

I think Stipe was just a bit reckless last time, he knows know to be more careful and as tough an SOB as DC is, I can see Stipe finishing him with strikes. That's my heart anyway and what I voted for. My head says DC will out work him and either a KO or Sub is his for the taking. Should be a great fight.

I can't wait for Pettis Diaz, should be very interesting.

Watched the countdown last night and agree with the above assuming stipe doesn't get reckless and stays well away from the clinch
with such a huge reach advantage, if he uses that cormier could be wrecked after 2/3 rounds but should it go past 3 it'll just be a case of who wants it most

safe he stay he probably overlooked cormier last time out

Can't wait for this!!
Hope Stipe KO's Cormier in the first(havimg a small nibble on this too). Surely he uses his reach to better advantage this time around.
I think Yoel beats Paulo but I'm not sure how good he is as he has fought lesser opponents.
Also think Pettis beats Diaz, surely 3 years is too long and he has to have some ring-rust.

best card in a while.

going to go with:
yoel as costa hasnt been in a 3rd round ever in his mma career and yoel has fought much tougher opponents

Diaz purely because i enjoy his fights but it will be a tough one for him

DC as i think he will just have a better game plan and find a hole in stipes game. plus at 12/1 i couldnt help but put a tenner on dc to win by tko/ko in the second round

Pettis will need to keep disciplined. He was beating Tony and lost focus iirc.

I think Pettis is at his worst when he is being backed up, So I expected Diaz to just keep throwing volume punches as he does and walking him down ,

I can't see him stopping Diaz from walking him down backing him up and basically just beaten him up ,

Pettis only chance for me is to hurt Diaz early and gain some respect t , which he can do if he lands a good kick,

Id like to DC win and then retire. Id then also like to see Stipe become the champ after that.
Diaz to beat Pettis and look for 100mill to fight mcgregor at MSG

Also wondering about this. Also, if anyone has experience with BT ppv, can you record it on the skybox?
