    Since the UFC Gods have gifted Overeem an immediate title shot if he beats BigFoot, I'd like to see Cormier fight JDS right off the bat. It's the fight that makes the most sense for both fighters.

    Someone coming off a win.
    Winner of Hunt/Struve.
    Basically one or two pretty winnable fights against people in the upper end of the top ten/fringe. Get a little recognition then title fight.

    More than likely what will happen, unfortunately.
    I'd like to see Frank have two or three more wins on decent competition and then hang it up, would love to see him go out on a positive note. I'm not too interested in seeing him against top 5 guys anymore, with the exception being Barnett.

    Mir? Not to knock Mir. But Cormier deserves better. Mir should be fighting Todd Duffee.

    I would love him to drop to LHW and challenge Jon Jones eventually.

    Mir, Nelson or Kongo. One of the usual UFC HW test fighters.

    Everyone seems to miss that JDS is not the champ anymore, Cain is. DC and Cain won't fight and Cormier still wants Mir so that would be a good ufc debut fight.
