JDS wants a Top Five opponent, preferably Volkov! Thinks Reem and Werdum are scared.

    “I had already closed a deal to fight Ngannou before all this happened. He could be an option, but I think he has another fight. A rematch with Overeem could be nice, but I think he has a fight, too. I also don’t think he’d take that fight. There’s Werdum, actually there’s not, he wouldn’t take it. But I think there’s Alexander Volkov, he’s climbing the division and has no fights scheduled. That would be a perfect match-up. I know he wants to fight for the belt, so I’ll give him that feeling of what it’s like to fight for the belt.”

    Seems to have a lot of belief in himself. Personally I think any one of the fighters he named would finish him but there you go.

    I disagree, I think he's still a horrible matchup for Werdum

    I understand your point but I just don't think JDS is the same fighter he was back when they fought before. Werdum is over the hill too but 2018 post-USADA JDS is a shadow of his former self IMO.

    I'd love to see JDS/Ngannou. Someone would get slept spectacularly.

    He should fight the BB FN winner.

    I'd like to see the werdum rematch personally.

    Why should he get to fight the winner of two people higher ranked than him?

    Cleared. And avoided murder via Ngannou so he’s on cloud 9

    Instead of fishing for a fight, he should learn some damn footwork. No excuse for an elite fighter to get backed up against the cage 50 times a round.

    He doesn't have to be. Werdum is not known for his power and his offensive wrestling isnt the greatest. Its just a bad matchup.

    JDS vs Werdum 2 would be cool. I got a feeling Volkov is being saved for backup for Stipe vs Cormier, incase there is a pull out which seems to happen in every big fight these days.
