    Kawajiri vs Bermudez would be fun.

    Though, They'll probably make Mendes vs Kawajiri. Cub will probably fight the Aldo/Lamas winner. Or rotate that to Cub/Kawajiri

    I hope he does good. but i think he will lose two in a row and go back to Japan. I hope im wrong but the way he looked tonight on the feet I was not impressed. Wrestler with stand up he is fucked.

    If Mendes doesn't get the next crack at the belt there's something criminal going on. I could see Crusher paired against Cub, Siver, Poirier, or even KZ whenever he comes back... basically a top ten opponent.

    I know he's a seasoned vet but I still hope they give him a mid tier guy in his next fight before giving him a big name.

    I think him/Cub would be great hell i would have him as the favorite..with that being said I think he is too one-dimensional to be champ

    Soriano is cousins to the guy who married my cousin.

    That being said, he started out good then faded bad

    Edit. He's the cousin of my cousins husband's cousin.

    If that makes sense

    Let's see how he does against Poirier since both would be 2-3 fights away from a title shot with a win anyway.

    Wrestling + ground game.
    How is that 1 dimensional?

    Soriano had wrestling, he didn't have ground game though.

    But Kawajiri's skills have detoriated(especially striking), which is true for most veterans.

    he looked pretty good, but who really knows that much about his opponent? he was getting out-struck to begin with, but then again they were claiming this guy is the best striker in the blackzillians... better than rashad, overeem, spong, cosmo alexandre... ha..

    needs a stiffer test before we can really judge, i think

    Cardio can be an issue. He was breathing heavy into the second round. He looked visibly exhausted after getting the sub. Maybe its just the UFC adrenalin dump but I'm sure someone like Crusher can handle octagon jitters.

    I think he underestimated Soriano's wrestling. Once he settled he dominated.
