When/if Overeem beats Bigfoot, he won't be fighting JDS in my opinion, they'll shoot him straigh at Cain, as they should. That will then be the biggest fight.

Now, as a die hard fan like all of you. It's amazing to me how many people still haven't witnessed Pettis's wall kick to Henderson from the awesome WEC days. Point being, the UFC marketing machine is awesome and powerful enough to push the living crap out of Pettis/Henderson II, espeically with Henderson no doubt gaining a lot of fame with his performance on FOX. Of course that can only happen if Pettis gets the best of Cerrone.

Those are the two fights I could see doing big Pay Per View numbers over the next six months.
I'm pretty sure a ton of people have seen the kick, the actual fight might be a different story but that kick was on ESPN a bunch in 2011 and even got played on my local news after the fight happened which has never ever covered MMA.
