    Could honestly see him beating 3-6 with the correct game plan, but that's a big if. Barnett would make for a good challenge, he could probably hold his own with TRTless milk producing Bigfoot and out work Travis Browne.

    I really think Stipe lost a huge opportunity when Junior dropped out of the fight. I think he would have beat Junior and got a title shot at Cain.

    Almost no one shares my opinion but I just had a feeling about that fight. I think Junior dodged a bullet.

    Terrible chances against Cain, Overeem and JDS.

    Meh chances against Barnett and Werdum

    Good chances against Browne and Silva.

    3-6 he's got a decent chance. I'd like to see him against the champ on day, but it don't like his chances

    I can see him beating Barnett, Browne, and Overeem. He could probably beat Bigfoot too. I think Werdum would tap him and Cain and Junior would knock him silly.

    I still think he would have beaten JDS. Pretty sure Cain broke JDS.

    I think he'd have a decent chance against anyone there excluding JDS and Cain.

    And yes that includes Werdum who is the most overrated guy at Heavyweight right now, sorry not sorry.

    I think he beats Barnett 7 outta 10 times. As for the others, he has 30% maximum chance of pulling the win against any of them.

    Struve slept him, gonzaga tagged him til he broke his hand... And JDS dodged a bullet? No, just No

    I can see him beating Browne, Bigfoot, Barnett and Reem, and maybe Werdum.
