Someone that most hardcore fans have never heard of. If this was a free card, like Gegard Mousasi vs. But asking fans to shell out a regular PPV price for a card that is less than stellar and that is co-headlined by a complete unknown is a tough sell, and I expect the PPV buyrate for this event to really suffer without the inclusion of Evans. It serves no purpose other than to give DC the opportunity to make the cut to and see how he feels at the weight.
Maybe Cummins is a decent prospect, and maybe he does deserve to be in the UFC, but he has NOT earned a fight against Cormier, and the UFC would have been better off paying DC his show money and moving him to a future card instead of giving him a nobody. After all, if Cummins was as good as supporters of this fight are making him out to be, he would have already been in the UFC. Sara McMann, Jessica Eye vs. Alexis Davis, Robert Whittaker vs.
Stephen Thompson and Rory MacDonald vs. Demian Maia, not because of this stay-busy fight between DC and a year-old unknown with four pro fights. You must be logged in to post a comment.

That is, he isn't the only one with a couple unverifiable stories about how he, like, totally beat that world champion guy one day in practice, years ago.
Most fighters, however, have enough honor and respect to not try and monetize those stories. Cummins may have at least temporarily elevated himself by pulling back the veil on old practice sessions, but he's also embarrassed himself by doing so. Those with major accomplishments can let those speak for themselves. Cummins' talk is also particularly noxious when you consider the circumstances of his practice matches with Cormier.
We're not talking about the fact that Cormier was quite literally the man for the U. Sure, that's valuable to understand as it then frames Cummins' supposed domination of Cormier in practice as an analogous situation, perhaps, to some college kid getting a steal off of Michael Jordan in a summer game but then getting lit up for forty points in his rookie season in the NBA by MJ. Cormier did, after all, beat Cummins handily in actual wrestling competition.
It wasn't just Pat Cummings that was wrestling me. It was Pat Cummings and everyone else coming in, wrestling me. And also, I was going through a lot of personal issues at the time. The circumstances we're talking about go beyond the pressure of preparing for an Olympic games as Cormier was and Cummins was not in , however. As Cummins must know full and well, in Cormier was not only working towards Olympic gold, he was doing so after having recently losing his daughter.
Cormier's life has had more than it's share of tragedy. As a child his father was shot and killed. Then, while preparing for Athens, Cormier's daughter was killed in a car accident. Did Cormier lose his cool one day in practice while preparing for the Olympics and feeling that pressure added onto unknowable grief from burying a child? What Cormier does not appear able to forgive is Cummins cynically leveraging that difficult moment in his life for his own gain. What Patrick "Durkin" Cummins did in order to get his UFC shot was much worse than trade on practice stories - he also traded on the tragedy experienced by a man he was supposed to have been there to help as a teammate in Cummins may have opened up old wounds for Cormier a little more than a week before having to fight him.
The American Kickboxing Academy coach and fighter is now doubly motivated to earn his first win at light heavyweight. So, not only have you crossed the line, you've completely put yourself in my cross hairs. You're not Pat Cummins, the nice kid anymore. You're a guy that I've got to go in that Octagon [and] you're going to suffer for your words. You should never do that. His words may have helped him get an expedited trip to the UFC but w ho knows if teammates will really ever be able to trust him after he so casually and gleefully broke the code of the training room.
Some things in life are more important than career, money, winning and losing. So, win or lose on Saturday night, hopefully it was all worth it for Cummins. What may have happened between he and Cormier a decade ago in private may not have stayed in the practice room, thanks to Cummins.

To a degree, it makes sense: five of Miocic's last seven fights have ended inside of one round, with just two — UD victory over Francis Ngannou and fourth-round TKO victory over Cormier — lasting longer than one. For Cormier, 12 of his 25 career fights have gone longer than two rounds.

After winning the first bout against Stipe Miocic via first-round knockout, Cormier found himself at the receiving end of a Miocic knockout himself in their most recent fight. Both fighters mixed in a takedown, but the fight spent most of the time standing. Cormier routinely tagged Miocic, until Miocic switched his strategy in the fourth round.
Looking forward, Cormier won the striking battle in both previous matchups. Fighting in the smaller cage, Miocic could struggle to use his five-inch height and eight-inch reach advantage to keep distance. From a grappling perspective, this bout also favors Cormier. Cormier wrestled for the American Olympic team and already noted his wrestling game plan ahead of this bout. He even picked up, slammed and controlled Miocic on the mat for a bit in their second fight.
With paths to victory striking and grappling, Cormier remains a solid value at in this bout. The best odds for this fight come from DraftKings sportsbook. You can find them HERE. Now 36, Junior Dos Santos makes his 29 th professional fight against up-and-comer Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
Known exclusively as a kickboxer, Rozenstruik enters this bout fresh off a knockout loss at the hands of Francis Ngannou. While the betting markets favor Rozenstruik, Dos Santos actually holds a number of advantages in this bout. Dos Santos typically tries to box with his opponents, but he actually holds a grappling advantage in this spot. In his second-most recent fight, Rozenstruik allowed a pair of takedowns to Alistair Overeem.
Overeem controlled Rozenstruik for a majority of those rounds, and Rozenstruik failed to get back to his feet. Dos Santos only lands 0. However, that takedown came against current champion Miocic, showing he at least has the ability.
In fact, Dos Santos has only attempted one takedown since that fight. On the feet, Rozenstruik remains a far more formidable opponent with his kickboxing background. Four of five UFC level fights finished in the second round or earlier for Rozenstruik.
While he likely holds the striking advantage here, the sample size is difficult to draw any actionable information from.
