I find dc overwhelmingly unlikeable. I never hear him talk and not think "could you just shut you fat mouth"

Which is why the dc vs jones fight is going to be hard to watch. Dc is a guy i would never want to be stuck in a conversation with but jones is a worthless pile of dog crap. I hate dc as champ but i truly despise jones to my core.

Hope Bones wins so he can finally move up to HW and get caught by Stipe.

I think DC the commentator is brilliant. DC the MMA fighter leaves me much to be desired. His fight style is kind of boring to watch, albeit very effective. Then when he went off on a tizzy because the promotional poster for his last fight had Rumble larger then him. He lost a little respect for me there. Although I think going full heel is a good move for him. Jones is like the complete opposite. That said I don't really have a rooting interest in who wins. I just want to see the fight. These 2 need to settle things.

I hate guys who finish most of their fights, have elite striking skills, slam people, and outgun fighters with huge reach advantages.

Literally would rather watch WNBA.

Yea way to run overboard with it... Laughing

It's more of the laying on guys and smothering aspect. Again... effective just not that exciting to watch. When I'm watching a BJJ master like Maia it's about transitioning gaining advantages and working towards a finish. With DC it's more of just using his weight to hold a guy down, wear him out, and eventually he sinks in the sub. In that 1st fight against Rumble after DC got hurt with a couple of head kicks it went to the ground and it was basically just DC laying on him for the rest of the fight. Against Silva he barely even let Anderson get a combo in before taking it straight to ground and laying on him for the rest of the fight.

Not knocking the guy.. why get punched in the face when you have a huge advantage elsewhere? I'm just saying as an MMA fighter his fights tend to be on the boring side to watch.

I don't know if I'd say he has elite striking skills. He hasn't knocked a guy out since 2014

Lets not forget that dude is UNDEFEATED at heavyweight. I never looked at DC as a lay and pray kinda fighter. The only fight I thought he looked a little boring in was against the Spider. We all wanted him to trade with him, but he took the correct approach.

What? Are you complaining he didn't finish Rumble fast enough? The fight lasted less than 9 minutes. DC took his back in both fights. What do you mean when you say "it was basically just DC laying on him for the rest of the fight."

Name the boring fights.

1)Anderson
2)Last 2 rounds of Jones fight where he gassed after 3 excellent rounds

What else?

Anderson Silva had more boring fights than DC.

He clobbered the best boxer in the division who was schooling Jones for most of the fight, while at a MASSIVE reach disadvantage. DC has insanely talented hands and striking instincts, and plenty of KO power, dude was KOing heavyweights.

Seriously, I don't understand where this fantasy narrative came from. People pretend like the Silva fight is something that defines his career, when all it was was an exception.

DC just doesnt feel like a true champ. Who has he actually beat? Rumble 1 is the only fight that is really a high end win. He looked good against jones until he got poked (shocker jones poked someone). But i feel DC isnt a boring fighter as much as its unimpressive. If he wasnt the main event his fights would have been alright but to build up to blah fights make it seem worse.

Doods...come on.

Rumble is the most feared fighter this division has seen, maybe ever. He finished him twice. Imagine the Bones vs Rumble hype if there's no DC or if Rumble beat DC. He then beat the next best fighter at his own game, and was actually dominating until he got caught with a knee. He also has wins over guys who were mid to high ranked at HW (Barnett, Bigfoot, Nelson).

Who else is there for him to beat other than Jones?

I agree he doesn't "feel" like a true champ and will forever be in Jones' shadow until he beats him.

I seriously think people just don't give him the credit he deserves because he's short and pudgy.

Rumble 2 means nothing. Rumble didnt come in with his head on straight. Barnett is a solid win but nelson and bigfoot are garbage on a hot Sunday afternoon.

Silva was his chance. He got silva on an hour and half notice. It was his chance to show the world he was a true fighter and he didnt do anything. He had nothing to lose and he fought like he wanted the judges to give him a win. AND silva almost got him at the end.

There are champions and there are people who hold the belt...dc holds the belt.

DC has elite striking?

Dude punches as if he had 2 broom sticks as limbs..

Reported for lying.. The one true champ is Jones and it's
Not rumble whose most feared! That is Jones who's never ever lost a
match(DQ)..

Bigfoot was coming off a win over Fedor and Arlovski. Went on to fight for UFC HW title 2 years later.

Nelson was still top 10 ranked IIRC. This was before he went on a losing streak.

I don't understand how a washed up Silva was his chance to show himself? Yea, if he pounded a washed up legend the same way he did Henderson, it would look better on his resume than how it actually went, but who cares about Silva today? I didn't even bother to include him as a relevant win, just like I didn't bother including Henderson because he was expected to crush in both fights. So does that mean we have include him ragdolling Henderson in the list of "who has he beaten"?
