@Joshjeffords

There is a good chance that Daniel Cormier would KO Paul but I don't actually think that's a given. It just depends on how hard he's been training recently and with the Heavyweights especially, once they start to decline, that decline can often be very rapid compared to fighters of other weight classes. Having said that, if that fight happened I would still pick Cormier by KO.
