Cormier vs. OSP
Here’s one for ya, and one that hasn’t really been discussed much given the astronomical odds against St. Preux at UFC 197. How would this fight go down? Could OSP go from the massive underdog against the uncrowned champion at UFC 197, to the interim champ with fire in his heart, to the undisputed UFC light-heavyweight champion in the space of a few months? He’s just two fights away from doing so, but it’s a gargantuan task, and would include some monstrous upsets in the meantime.
If he is able to get past ‘Bones’ with perhaps the biggest upset in modern MMA, certainly in the division’s history, could Saint Preux take out ‘DC?’ Many would argue that Cormier actually has a far more challenging style for OSP than Jones does. That heavy wrestling base is what saw OSP man handled against Ryan Bader, and Cormier is the king of that grinding style. All in all, a win for OSP against Jones would be game changing, with ramifications in multiple divisions, and would alter the future of the UFC immeasurably.
But until April 23 all we have is speculation and hype, and you know we love to partake in both, so stay tuned to LowKick.
