I think it's very intriguing. Cormeir's ring IQ far exceeds his experience. He is bold enough to walk up and lay hands on Jones (something he reacts poorly to). He certainly won't be out-wrestled. So, that leaves it on the feet. Cormeir has thus far shown great ability to compensate for his reach. I say it's a great fight, perhaps leading to rematches. We just have to see how Daniel handles 205.
And, BTW, Mir is almost tailor-made for Cormeir; big name, dangerous guy who offers absolutely no threat to Cormeir stylistically.
Well no threat anymore anyway. A younger Mir might have used some leg kicks and possibly pulled guard to submit him. But even in his younger days, he could've ran out of gas and got stopped by Cormier. These days though, Mir's chin is shot from age and all the big shots he's taken. The Mir that took all those punches from Freeman might have had a shot against Cormier, but not now.
As for Jones, DC should thrown him down a couple of times, maybe put him up against the cage and land some shots and then throw those heavy hands on Bones, I like DC's chances in that. It won't be one sided though, Jones has some good kickboxing and has not stayed on top of 205 for this long for nothing.
