    Good to hear, but i think for timing and marketing purposes, he'll take fight before fighting for the title.

    Good for him. I don't think he'll take the title, but he'll be top 5 at least for years to come

    This is the right time. He's has quite a few options at either LHW or HW, but JDS vs. Cain result will force him into one or the other.

    Awesome. DC is a handful for all the elite heavyweights. I think he poses serious problems to Cain, Reem, Werdum, Mir, etc.

    specially if Dos Santos beats Cain and Overeem beats Big Foot impressively(and doesn't test positive). Cormier could fight Mir or Nelson before.

    I'm very interested in seeing him at LHW, so I hope he drops. But there are interesting matchups for him at HW as well

    Good for him. Tune up fight and then a title shot to avenge Cains soon to be loss.

    cool. all 5 top hw's in the same org. i like it.

    after Werdum v Nog and AO v BF, lots of fights to be made.

    sux that TUF is yet again causing slowdowns, with Werdum & Nog out until June (and therefore not in the mix again until Oct 13 or so)
