    If Bigfoot spoils the party, do we get Cain / JDS 3?

    No other contenders at the moment.

    Werdum with a win should get the next

    or Hunt/Struve winner

    then make JDS-OVereem

    I think Struve/Hunt winner will get the shot then.

    Good lord... could you imagine if Struve got a title shot? That would be a joke. The line on that fight would be stupid...

    I really like Cain's no BS attitude.

    Overeem is definitely the best opponent for Cain at this time. I want to see him against Werdum as well in late 2013.

    The first heavyweight to hit Reem solidly on the chin will ko him

    I am a huge fan of The Reem but I don't think he can beat Cain Velasquez. It is a great fight though and I am dying to see it.

    They should still schedule Cain with a fight tho even if Overeem loses, because Werdum doesn't fight till June anyway I believe.

    After Cain's great performance against JDS, he's going to be pretty confident that he can nullify Overeem's strengths on the feet.

    Bigfoot is going to Ko Reem and Nog is going to walk through Werdum so the title shot picture will be a mess.

    Most LHW's could do the same.

    Overeem vs Velasquez is going to look very similar to Overeem vs Shogun I. Overeem manhandles Velasquez for the first two minutes, but succumbs to Velasquez's pace and aggression.

    Velasquez via TKO round 1 (late round 1)

    What would that say about the division? Overeem gets suspended for PEDs, loses to a lower top 10 fighter then gets a title shot?

    JDS vs Overeem (if he loses) would be ideal.

    The division is still weak and top heavy, even with the strikeforce fighters coming in. Seems like we could be watching Overeem, Cain and JDS fighting each other over and over. Throw Cormier in as a wildcard, though he won't fight Cain.

    Idk, Cain is going to have more of a problem coming in for his takedowns like he did against JDS. Overeem has a crazy guillotine and ridiculous knees.

    I think the only reason that Cain would be a favorite is cause he's a tough guy to finish with a fast pace and crazy cardio

    Anderson fought Cote and Leites. Each dominant champ has some easy fights on his resume.
