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.
Cormier is a certain no. Cormier vs Barnett is next month and the heavyweight final is part of the strikeforce deal with showtime.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Dana will soon announce that Randy Couture is coming out of retirement for an instant shot at the Heavy Weight title even though he's coming off a devastating knockout at LHW....Sound familiar?

How funny would that shit be lol. No idea what they're gonna do with this card but it's got me reinvigorated anyways.

I really only seeing it be Mir or Hunt. Werdum, Nelson and Cain already lost to JDS. Cormier and Barnett are fighting next month, Bigfoot, Mitrione, and Kongo are coming off losses, Brock is in the WWE and coming off 2 losses, and there is no way in hell I see Fedor coming in and getting a title shot. How crazy would it be if they threw in Lesnar though lol. I know it would never happen.

The fans have already spoken. Much more people want to see Hunt fight rather than Mir, the statistics speak for them selves.

Fight with Werdum simply isn't going to happen.

Overeem has single single handedly cause a whirlpool of confusion to the HW division.

Now, we have to waiting till his hearing on April 14. But meanwhile, what does Mir, Velasquez and JDS need to do? I'm sure their training camp will be affected.

JDS has been training for a Kick boxer in Overeem. But should the rumored Mir really step up, that is a complete different style of fighter he need to train for. He would have to focus more on TDD and defensive BJJ.

Same thing for Mir. So is he going to train for a Boxer in JDS, or a wrestler with decent striking in Velasquez?

Hopefully, Dana will make the decision soon not only for us, the fans. But also for all affected fighters (which include Roy, Big foot according the the rumors flying around). who will have their training camp affected should the change of opponent really occurs.

I still think in the back of my mind they secretly signed fedor and this would be the perfect card/scenario to have him thrown into. yes i know not deserving of it ect..but it just sounds like something the ufc would do

but yeah i want Mir as champ so he is my choice

Does Hunt even have a great chin anymore? He was knocked out by a middleweight in 18 seconds. Probably one of Melvin Manhoefs biggest MMA wins.

Although when Hunt fought Overeem, he looked alright for the short time it was on the feet. I was going to say he dropped Overeem, but after watching the fight video, it looked like Overeem got caught a little but the shove from Hunt was what put him on his back.

Dos Santos vs. Hunt would be kind of fun, but I see Dos Santos knocking him out if they fought.
