Logical, I was never big on this card and was only buying it due to the fact I buy everyone anyway so the change doesn't effect me too much I was just hoping they'd scrap the whole Heavyweight card and replace Gonzaga/SDR and Hunt/Struve with Barboza/Dunham and Brandao/Elkins.

I have no clue why they have to change everything around all of a sudden.

They can just move Cain back a card. Maybe they really want Cain on the co-main event.

JDS/Mir
Bigfoot/Roy
Struve/Hunt
Rosario/Gonzaga
Dunham/Barboza

That would still be a good card. Real good card.

Told ya so, realistically it's unfair to keep pushing Cain back it's a loss of revenue and really who where they going to match him with?

I would have prefered

Mir/JDS
Cain/Big Foot
Nelson/Hunt
Mitrione/Struve

I would have pushed him back 1 month and had Russow leave and ended up with Cain/Werdum in Brazil. Werdum is a better fighter than Bigfoot.

Cain doesn't HAVE to be on that card. Cain/Werdum is a better fight than Cain/Mir in my eyes. And it certainly is better than Cain/Bigfoot.

Considering the UFC wants to badly do a rematch between Cain and Junior it looks like he does.

I know everyone will just say "Well the first fight ended early" but I don't care, there's a reason the first fight ended early and I've got no desire to see a rematch this soon. Hopefully the SF GP winner is brought over to fight Junior after he demolishes Mir and Cain and Werdum can fight for the top contender spot.

I just can't think of a more unappealing fight at this time than dos Santos/Velasquez II.

Is it still a title fight?

Anyways to me this card just got way more predictable.

No reason why it wouldn't be.

I'm sure Dos Santos doesn't care because he's a badass but I'm sure a few of the champs wouldn't want to change opponents on short notice.

...Good adjustments by Joe Silva. Still bummed about Reem & JDS. Would have been the HW striking match of the year. Irony. Lesnar is back with the WWE and Mir gets another title shot. I really wanted the trilogy. Mir is gonna get waxed by Junior. No way I see Frank taking JDS down. Mir will be forced to stand and it will be lights out for Frankie. Junior's hands are way faster, more accurate and his timing is impeccable. I see Mir getting finished with a barrage of punches by rd. 2 or 3.
...I see Cain quickly dismantling Silva and pulling off a beatdown similiar to what Cormier did. Cain by TKO rds 1 or 2.
...Nelson & Mitirone will be an awesome fight. I think with Matt's huge reach advantage, he'll light up Nelson quick. If Roy gets Matt down, much different ballgame. That's Roy's world but Mitrione has good TDD. Don't know if Nelson will get KO'd with his titanium chin but he's gonna take a beating unless he gets Matt to the ground.
...Still an excellent card that still has serious barnburner potential...
