Special UFC Superfight Lesnar vs Fedor!!

Stranger things have happened....

But seriously aside from the last one all the others make sense now

Like most of the matchups... really wish in 08 Fedor faced Brock... that would have been monumental.

Big Country would get destroyed by Cormier and has no right to face him. Give Overeem Cormier or someone on a streak. Carwin vs. Big Country sounds better to me.

Think your being a bit unkind to Big Country, a guy whos only been stopped once in around 25 fights. Knockout power, excellent Ju Jitsu, I dont think you can say Cormier will destroy him.
Aside from that its a good entry point for Cormier to judge his abilities and see how good he really is. If he can beat Roy we know he's a top tier heavyweight

Big Country is a mediocre fighter with a gimmick who just happens to be durable, he's no different than a guy like Mayhem.

Cormier would crush him just like dos Santos did.

Harsh harsh harsh. He's a second tier heavyweight, hes certainly not elite, but he's not mediocre either. He won the ultimate fighter at a canter, and has a few good knockouts on his CV. Not sure how you can be so dismissive of him especially against a guy who has basically 2 decent wins in his career and hasnt fought in the UFC. He's fought Bigfoot who just got totally destroyed by Cain, and Barnett who we know is a good fighter but has been fighting cans for what 6 or 7 years.
To say he would crush Roy with such certainty is optimistic at this point

Still not sold on Cain fighting JDS 1 fight removed from getting KTFO. That being said, unless Reem is able to fight there is really no other viable option.

I like Cormier vs. Nelson. Mir vs. Silva would be interesting and if Reem is available I would like to see Cain vs. Carwin. Shane sounds extrtemely motivated which peaks my interest in this fight.

I don't think JDS's next HW fight will be on a big "hw" card I think it will be an annual thing. My hope is the next Heavyweight card is next year and features the following five fights.

JDS vs Daniel Cormier
Stefan Struve vs Josh Barnett
Frank Mir vs Cole Konrad
Mark Hunt vs Alistair Overeem
Shane Carwin vs Stipe Mioic

Nelson is like the definition of mediocre. He doesn't have good striking, he doesn't have good wrestling, but he has just enough of everything to put up a decent fight against anyone. The only thing he's good at is taking punishment and throwing that belly into his overhand right's.

I wont say Cormier would walk through Nelson because no one does. But, it would be an easy night for him. Cormier's striking and wrestling is just on another level. I'm always amazed at how fast his hands are for a HW.

Josh Koscheck just sad the other night on MMA Uncensored that he thinks Cain and Cormier will end up fighting each other. He said that they haven't know each other along time and just train together, it's not like thier best friends or anything... I'm guessing since he knows them..He knows whats up
