    Question is, where does Rashad go a with a win over Cormier?

    Title shot? Glover (if he loses), Goose?

    I don't think it's that short notice. It's 12 weeks away and just 1.5 months ago, he weighed in at 224. He even mentioned that he didn't even start restricting his diet to get to 224 but just ate healthier. Restricting it should bring him below 220 which is well in range for a healthy cut as it is 7% of his body weight. He must however be anxious after his hospitalization due to the horrific weight cut in the olympics but I think the professionals he's working with now will be able to get it right.

    I don't really enjoy Cormiers fights, he is effective but pretty boring, best fight was against Barnett and hasn't really impressed me since then, however it doesn't really matter how exciting his fights are if he keeps getting the wins, I think Rashad will go beast mode in this fight which will in turn bring out the best in Cormier, Rashad to win by split decision

    So Rashad is just going down the list of broadcast partners? I imagine after this he'll be facing Bisping, Stann, Cruz, Florian, and Jay Glazer.

    Seriously though, I'm not all that enthused about this fight as a main event. I think Cormier will grind out another Dec. I'll be streaming this one for sure.

    I like this fight and see Rashad as having only a slight edge in handspeed.....but that's based on a HW Cormier. Their boxing is probably close to comparable and Cormier has an edge in wrestling but that's not necessarily MMA wrestling.

    Should be either a fun or horribly boring fight.

    Cormier will be cutting weight during the Super Bowl. That sucks. He looks like a chicken wing kinda guy. That's a big chicken wing day
