    WTF? I mean WTF WTF?

    That fight makes no sense at all. Andrei coming off a loss vs. Stipe while Alistair is riding a 3 fight win streak and is upfront of a title shot together with big Ben.

    So what are they gonna do with Stipe and Cain?!

    Werdum can only fight one of them, the other fights whom? Browne?! WTH?

    I think Werdum/Stipe is in the works for 198 in Brazil. I'm down with Cain vs Browne.

    Good fight where either guy can get KO'd. Why complain?

    How about Cain stay healthy and fight someone other than Werdum/JDS/Big Foot for the first time in 5 years.

    Agreed. No sense whatsoever. Especially since they're teammates

    Yeah I was thinking this was a strange match up, but why not, both top 5-7 heavyweights, bound to happen in the division. I would have liking to have seen Browne-Overeem 2 over this though, that fight was bonkers while it lasted.

    I don't see the problem. AA wins and he is suddenly immortal again. Reem weens in brutal fashion (likely) and he is a big scary man people want to see fight for the belt.

    Whoever connects first is going to win that fight.
    Both of these chins have been severally compromised already, so I either expect a KO or a very boring decision where AA is standing in the middle of the octagon with EcoReem circling around him like Mighty Mouse Johnson.

    Arlovski and the UFC had a fallen out before when he left the UFC but it seems that since he came back The UFC is on his nuts, that is probably not the case but their have been a few things that would make one think that

    This fight makes no sense.. They are probably hoping for a Reem KO, especially since they put AA in front of him to main the Amsterdam Card but seriously it will backfire a lot to them if AA knocks him out..
    Then they will have no contendre out of those two where an argument could be made for both of them a short while ago...

    I hate this fight too. Reem/Cain or Reem/Browne.

    Something in my gut is telling me Andrei will catch him with something that puts him out.

    I do think Overeem has to be a slight favourite, and with Andrei's glass chin coming back to make a special cameo appearance against Stipe - I'm no longer much of a believer.
