I can see three different options for JDS to fight next:

Travis Browne, Stipe Miocic, Alistair Overeem and Barnett.

I think the most even match-ups would be JDS vs Browne, Miocic vs Overeem and Barnett could fight Gonzaga or Nelson.

The most entertaining match-ups would be Overeem vs JDS or Nelson, but that leaves Browne, Miocic and Barnett without an opponent, unless you put Miocic against Browne, and Barnett against Nelson or Gonzaga.

I'd like to see Overeem get KO'd again. That's about it...

JDS is in a situation where he cannot fight top contenders as Browne because he would likely knock them out and then what? JDS vs Cain again?
nah. ufc needs to build new contenders for cain in the immediate and jds isn t getting a shot at cain in 2014 for sure
this means jds wont fight any possible top contender, which means jds overeem makes sense

JDS vs Reem makes sense ranking wise but not business wise.

The UFC might try and get Reem a few more wins to face whoever the champ is.
It makes sense rankings wise and business wise. A win for Overeem gets him right back in to title contention. If Dos Santos wins it's good for his comeback as well. Plus it's a big money fight for the UFC as people have wanted this fight for awhile.

But I see JDS KO Overreem.

Eliminating title contenders for JDS who is in nomansland.

Who else would JDS fight? Miocic? That would be just as undeserved.
Well honestly I don't want to see JDS fight Cain again for a long time. He's in a difficult position. He could potentially take out any rising contenders they throw at him. However, you don't want to build him back up too fast, as Cain has dominated him brutally twice now.
