    If you could book Cain Velasquez's next fight, who would you pick to be his opponent?

    I want him to get one more win before he fights the title again. He destroyed Travis Browne, and it sucks that Travis Browne is stepping in to face Werdum in a rematch when it really should be Cain stepping in.

    Cain vs. Winner of Werdum/Browne

    He needs to have a better W/L record against a full training camp before we can even speculate.

    Word on the street - his next fight will be with Chipotle. But I can't confirm it just yet.

    Cain is one of two fighters I actively root for but I don't want him to get an undeserving title shot. Make him secure another win before he gets the chance to retake the mantle of heavyweight king. And it doesn't have to be some world beater, either. Throw him in with Lewis or Struve for all I care.

    Would've been badass if he stepped in for Rothwell at 203 but oh well. I would like to see him against Overeem

    I want him to fight Rothwell again because he's a crybaby and Cain didnt put the fear of god in him enough the first time

    Cain can fight the Barnett/Arlovski winner or Mark Hunt. I want to see new fights, not endless pointless rematches to fights that just happened not that long ago. Werdum should be fighting Derrick Lewis for his short notice fight as well. There is no reason for him to rematch Browne.

    Cain only has 3-4 fights left in a injury filled career. Should be title shots and title defenses and if necessary any unfinished business.
