    Miocic
    JDS
    Overeem
    Barnett
    Browne

    I like Miocic vs Reem, JDS vs Browne, and let Barnett fight Gonzaga or Struve I guess (he deserves better but he is coming off a loss and he's the odd man out).

    I think it's pretty good now, the problem is what happens when most of the guys get too old...

    Most of them are too old right now though. Like, Barnett is 37 in November.

    Anyway

    I like JDS vs. Browne and Overeem vs. Barnett so idk where that leaves Miocic but I don't really like him either so wop.

    By too old I meant retired or no longer able to beat the younger but less skilled guys. Then we'll have Schaub vs Cain for the title if we don't get some new quality prospects.

    UFC needs to steal some HWs whose names end in -ov.

    I'm throwing in bigfoot because he needs to fight Barnett.

    Reem VS Stipe
    Bigfoot VS Barnett
    JDS vs Browne

    If BF can fight without TRT, yes he would be better being in the mix than Gonzaga/Struve.

    I'm gonna need to see someone other than Cain make JDS look human before I'll believe the HW division is anything but a 2 man race with 2nd place needing 1st to have a shit performance.

    I assume someone making Cain look human would also do. :D

    It's tough with so few quality heavyweights but maybe:
    Miocic vs Dos Santos
    Overeem vs winner of Shaub v Arlovski
    Barnatt vs Big Nog III
    Browne vs winner of Nelson v Hunt

    I think Stipe and Junior are the only real contenders on this list right now but I don't want to see Browne get someone that he's going to really outclass. With the depth in the division though any of these guys is potentially just a couple wins from a title fight.

    Browne already beat Barnett and Reem... so, I like:

    JDS vs Miocic
    Barnett vs Reem

    Browne gets winner of JDS vs Miocic.

    I like it this way because I really want to see Miocic vs JDS... and I am not so sure that they could get past Browne. A year ago I'd have been pretty sure JDS could... but absence makes the bet grow weaker.

    Jds/browne-either browne is legit contender or not...junior isn't gonna shoot double legs against the cage....either junior can improve or not... Jacksons gonna put together a gameplan that tests juniors grappling
    Overeem/barnett-beating mir doesn't erase ko's... Beating barnett -decisively- might .... Takedown AO, submit AO .... Travis who?
    Stipe/BF-easiest to promote.....stipe got nothing from fabio fight,but he showed up and did what he was supposed to......BF's last 4 fights were- title eliminator against cain/title eliminator against AO/ title shot vs cain/ FOTY w hunto

    Stipe gets deserved step up
    Win puts BF back in convo


    While all that happens werdum taps cain
    Hunt ko's BC(similar to tank/matua)
    Werdum vs hunt superbowl weekend
    Hunt stuffs shot after shot and KO's werdum
