    Cormier can do a back flip? I only believe this if it was at a pool. No video and I don't buy this unless specifically at a pool.

    As for Gustaffson's complaint,I would say he'd have a case if he did more than win one fight against Jimi Manuwa to earn his title shot.
    UFC's Facebook announcement claimed they were moving the Mighty Mouse fight from UFC 177 to main event 178. I can just smell the pay per view buys.

    Touche.

    Here are his words:
    Cormier explained that the moment which most cemented his decision to put off surgery came during his recent exhibition wrestling match against two-time NCAA champion Chris Pendleton at July's UFC Fan Expo. Cormier defeated Pendleton by a score of 12-5, however there was a sequence during the match when Pendleton dove in deep on a single. While defending the takedown, Cormier realized that his knee "didn't feel any worse than it has for the past five years."

    "[I told my doctor] let me just see how this LCL feels in a month or so and I'll let you know," he said. "And my LCL doesn't hurt anymore, so now my knee just feels like it always has.

    "I'm doing everything. I'm wrestling. I was at Jay Glazer's gym the other day, we were training with some NFL players and we started doing back handsprings, and I did a backflip. If I can do a backflip, my knee is fine."

    I should have also specified with the assistance of a trampoline. I could see a back flip on a trampoline being maneuvered by that husky fella.

    And if Cormier loses all we will hear about is how he would have won with a healthy knee... Fix your injury and come into the fight with the current champ at 100%.

    As far as Gus's complaint, many people see the first fight going to Gus (personally I saw it 3-2 Jones but I can see it going either way). I think with as close as the first fight was and the destruction of Manuwa he's earned it. You could make an argument that Cormier hasn't earned his shot either. Beating a new comer to the UFC, then Dan Henderson on the downhill slide of his career doesn't earn a title shot in my opinion.

    And yes I know he's was doing well as a heavyweight and decided to drop down. Yes the precedent has been set in the past for ridiculous paths to title shots when switching weight classes. I just think he needed to fight a top 5 opponent before getting his shot is all.

    Bader was what? Top 6-10 at the time if lucky?
