    He already beat a better version of JDS than the one we have now. Wouldn't want to see that again.

    As much as I love JDS, 'Reem had his number in that fight and barely got touched.

    Reem has fought 10 times since JDS in dec 2015
    JDS 7 times.
    Arlovski 11.
    Is Arlovski the most active UFC HW?
    Impressive.

    Perhaps several years later it could look different. Hopefully.

    Lewis, but only because it’s a fresh match-up

    He truly is an anomaly, I have never in my life seen any other fighter in any other combat sport take so many brutal KO losses only to come back and put on some fantastic performances and come back as a solid contender. Furthering that, he doesn't seem to show any signs of brain damage.

    I'd like to see him face the winner of Aleksei, both fun fights for him. He'd get through Aleksei pretty easily, Lewis could knock him though.

    I wouldn't want to see this match unless it's for the title. There is a very good chance that Francis knocks Reem's head clean off of his soulders again, so it would have to be for something.

    The problem with Overeem-Lewis is that Lewis is already fighting Oleinik and Blaydes is likely to fight the winner. If Lewis loses maybe he can fight Overeem.

    The problem with Overeem-JDS is it already happened 4.5 years ago and Reem won. Since that fight JDS has gone 4-3 with losses to 3 guys that also beat Reem over the same time period (Stipe, Blaydes, Ngannou).

    So beating JDS really wouldn't prove anything or suggest that Reem could beat any of the guys he lost to

    I do think since Reem is 3-1 in his last 4 and was 10 seconds away from a win against Rozenstruik, with 2 more wins Reem should get another title shot. Happy to have him fight top 10 guys he hasn't fought yet.

    I feel like he's just getting as many fights in as he can on this great contract he has. Never won a ufc title and pulling almost a million just to show. So rematches against someone he's already beaten is probably just fine for him as long as that same price tag is attached. I'd like to see the lewis fight, it's a fresh match thats fun.

    Can’t blame Overeem for calling out one easy fight (JDS) but Lewis might get the KO.

    $800k days are over, $400k since his new contract. Started when he fought Pavlovich.

    I think Jnr has declined more since the first fight though.

    And by that you mean he is one of the few to not get underpaid.
