Evans and Cormier are set to square off in February at UFC 170 and that’s okay by me, though I’m a bit concerned by the possibility of their similar styles and friendship resulting in a relatively boring bout. Both are wrestlers by trade who pack power and neither is particularly athletic, so a stalemate could certainly surface once the cage door closes. Regardless, a win for either means a lot, so the stakes are high. Evans could string together his third straight instance of success, putting him back in position to challenge for a championship with one more victory in his pocket, while the unbeaten Cormier has an opportunity to show his decision to drop down to light heavyweight was the right move by taking out a divisional staple while earning a likely a title-shot in the process as well.
