    No. UFC would make Werdum vs Cain 3 or Werdum vs JDS 2. UFC loves rematches.

    I don't know, but I'd love to see Werdum vs Mir.

    I would think so. But theres always a chance JDS jumps the line, and we don't know what they plan on doing with Cain, so there isn't a match-up that would "surprise me" per se.

    It would not be right but I would like to see Mir vs Werdum. It would not be the first time Mir gets a quick path to the title shot.

    Me too. I'd hope for a ground battle, but end up being disappointed, like Mir/Nog 1 and Mir/Barnett.

    Yes, he is a much bigger name than Stipe and they can hype it as the ground fight of the century despite the fact that I doubt it would go there if they fought.

    Still going for Arlovski all the way. This is a terrible matchup imo, why kill off contenders? I've been waiting years for Arlovski vs Mir but this seems like a bad time for it

    It's possible, not a lot of HW's on a winning streak these days

    It might, though. Werdum would absolutely want to prove he is the better BJJ guy. I wouldn't be surprised if he pulled guard against Mir. That's what I hope, anyways... lol

    I don't think he will beat Arlovski. But I think winner of that fight, either way, is second in line behind JDS. Not quite sure where Stipe fits in.

    Werdum/Mir would be a very exciting technical ground battle, but I think Arlovski has other plans for Mir.

    Only fight I care about with Mir is a Metamoris match with Barnett.

    Probably. He's a name and a great matchup, should Werdum still be champ when/if that happens.

    As far as what they are good at and age...sure. Either winner makes sense. However Stipe will light werdum up
