I’d bet on Daniel Cormier to beat Anderson Silva at this point in his (Silva’s) career even if both fighters had ample time to prepare. That The Spider crawls into this bout to replace Jon Jones on just two days notice gives him even less of a chance and his losses are starting to stack up.
Cormier may be going easy on him for that reason; he takes and holds him down but doesn’t seem eager to finish him; though Silva is defensive on his back. I wonder how the match would go if the fighters remained standing the whole time as those exchanges look about equal.
my rating : 3 of 5
