    A strange matchup, seems like they do not know what to do with Stipe while everybody waits for the werdum-cain rematch.

    When the news of this broke earlier today, I was so annoyed at the matchup because it made it pretty much a guarantee that Cain was getting a rematch.

    I like this fight.
    Looks like an easy call for Stipe, but don't sleep on Big Ben.

    This means if Arlovski beats Mir without taking damage he'll likely get the title shot when Cain pulls out of 194.

    Not sure who they are trying to set up as number 1 contender because if both AA and Rothwell win, that's a solid case for either.

    if rothwell wins, we'll never hear the end of "Miocic was overrated, therefore JDS is overrated"

    Stipe has a better case than Rothwell. Even if Rothwell won the Mir/aa or Reem/jds winner would get the title shot. Mostly because Rothwell would get embarrassed by Cain or Werdum

    Want Rothwell to win so I can see Evil Rothwell in the post fight interview.

    Anik will probably make it awkward again though.

    This fight makes sense but Arlovski should be fighting Werdum for the belt and Cain should be at home nursing an injury. I have absolutely no desire to see him fight for the title ever again considering we just escaped his record-settingly bad reign
