Cormier can't come over due to the contractual obligation. He has to fight one more time for Showtime. I hope they don't go with this fight, i'd hate to see Andrei lose.

Fedor-DC, let's do this!

Fedor's too busy fighting Brock Lesnar

Not too bothered by this, to be honest. Mir, much as I like him, was going to go down hard to Cormier (JDS style). I really don't feel as though any part of that fight would have been competitive. It's only a bummer in the sense that the organization now has to scramble for a replacement.

Someone mentioned Fabricio. Could be a decent fight. Roy Nelson would certainly make it a show, but he's obviously tied up.

Disappointed for the fact that there are some people who believe Mir could strike with Cormier. Or flat out beat him. Mir would have been destroyed.

Not sure who they go with now. Give him a can so he can win without much effort and he can quickly come to the UFC and get another fight.

I'd be real excited if they somehow got Fedor in there. But I see it being Arlovski or bum.

As for UFC possibles?

Werdum has nothing going on and is a legit fighgter. I think the UFC should't waste one of these guys losing over in a worthless SF fight. Both guys could get a title shot with 1 more win. The division is thin.

Kongo? Wouldn't mind this fight.

Hunt? I don't care for it. We put Hunt in there for what? To see if he can pull off a 1 punch KO before DC takes him down? I don't like the matchup.

Roy Nelson would actually be a good option but not sure how they would just pull him from TUF.

Fabricio Werdum says he wants the fight. That is a much better fight in my opinion. I like Mir and all but he didn't stand much of a chance here.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I hope it's a throwaway fight against a can. The UFC shouldnt risk him or anyone else by making it a SF fight.
