    Yes he won the bronze medal, and Cormier was 20th. BUT Cormier says everything is different this year. We will see is that holds true. I think he is a top 3 in the world when his head is right.

    Disappointment again from Cormier. I agree that he should be top 3 in the world. I would like to see this match. I saw some of Batista's matches from the world's and he really liked to throw.

    what makes you think he should be top three ? Your heart or your head. Whats he ever done do indicate that he 's in the top three?

    He made the Bronze medal match in 2003 Worlds and 2004 Olympics (and lost). He has totally dominated US competition since 2003, and beat World Bronze Medalist Lawal at WTT.

    Admittedly, he has not done anything internationally since 2004, so part of it is using my head.

    The summary on themat.com says Cormier was pinned in the 3rd period with the score tied 0-0.

    and beat World Bronze Medalist Lawal at WTT.

    Huh?

    Cormier had a lucky draw at 2004 Olympics. It is doubtful he was 4th best in 2004.

    My memory fails me, for some reason thought Lawal got a bronze.

    Anyways, it takes more than a lucky draw to get to the Bronze medal match, it was a loaded weight class and he took the Iranian to OT.
