    do you think DC should move back to HW and fight Werdum or the guy who holds the belt? cause if Cain lose he probably won't get a TS in a very long time and also he may be out of his prime due the injuries and ring rust. in other hand DC has looked great at LHW and I think there is a good chance he can become HW champ if Cain is out of the picture

    I definitely wouldn't be against it and it would be great to see him back at HW again. I would also love to see the build up to Werdum v DC.

    I'd take Werdum in this matchup, but I definitely wouldn't count DC out.

    100% agreed. IN the standup, werdum will kill dc. On the ground, does anyone really want to be there with werdum for any length of time?

    I doubt that Werdum would "kill" DC in the stand up. DC has shown time and time again he is a much crisper striker than Cain. His footwork is better, he chains his combos better, and he is more versatile in his striking.

    Werdum's biggest strength on the feet is he can strike with no fear of being on his back. It's a huge advantage, but one that can be negated (like Hunt did in their fight).

    The ground is a different matter, of course.

    If that happens, I want to see Cain move down.

    Diet Cain vs Rashad would be a fireworks match-up.

    DC has great standup, but since going to the UFC, he's gunshy as hell. I'de favor werdum striking against DC due to his trigger issues.

    DC should move up to HW and Cain should move down to LHW. It would make for some great new matchups.

    Of course he should. He would be champion at HW.

    DC and Cain switching divisions would be neat. DC would have a better chance at becoming champ at HW than Cain at LHW.

    Agreed, if Cain can't beat Werdum then I don't see DC doing it either.

    Would love to see DC back at HW. He's a lot like Frankie at HW. Can tire out the bigger guys, and has the decisive speed advantage. I also think he grapple rapes, and strikes circles around Werdum.

    I don't think you can go all out blitz mode on Werdum. Style matchups. I think DC's style would be more successful against Werdum.
