I just see JDS subbing Hunt in the 1st round honestly.

It's insane how many people want a 8-7, 1 dimensional fighter to fight for the title. The dude is a can... He can box..but not fight...

Werdum does nothing for me. I'd honestly rather see Henderson step in and take that fight. Werdum defeats Nelson and gets a title shot, yet Hunt, who has wins over Rothwell and Kongo, would be a ludicrous choice? What Hunt would lack on the ground with JDS, Fabricio will lack on the feet, so you tell me who has a shorter night.

That said, I am still about earning your shots, meaning neither man should face JDS right now. But I agree, we're to a point where there aren't many options. I'm not certain who Dana and company have in mind, but I'd be a heck of a lot more excited to see Hunt fight over Werdum. Fabricio vs. Mir... now there's a fight I'd actually be interested in.

Dana needs to quit jerking us around and announce the main event already. Unless they're waiting on Overeem to apply for a license. Would that be cutting it close? I'm not certain where the application date falls in relation to the PPV.

Overeems hearing is in April 24, I figure the UFC won't announce an opponent before that.

Werdum is already fighting Russow in Brazil, not too sure he'd want to trade fighting in his home country for anything but a title shot.

Didn't know that fight was in Brazil. But maybe he would do it for a number 1 contender fight.

Although DW said Mir vs Cain is still happening, he was short on specifics. Notice how he didn't say when, where, or what UFC event it was happening at.

As for Werdum, I just don't see this fight happening. I don't know the filming schedule for TUF Brazil, but I assume they are still filming there. His schedule might be an issue. Who knows for sure?

I have: Mir>Henderson>Cormier>Cain>Werdum.............Hunt as the order for replacement fighters.
