JDS has been trash talking Overeem for a while and one could possibly argue that he was looking past Cain for the Overeem fight.

Should Overeem beat Big Foot would you rather Cain vs Overeem for the title or JDS vs Overeem grudge match with the winner fighting Cain. Werdum and Cormier are also in the mix.

Overeem vs Cain because cains the champ so all other fights for overeem after bigfoot are null to me. Also if JDS somehow beat overeem then we would have to see a 3rd rematch in 1 and a half years

Overeem vs JDS would be a better matchup for Overeem. Would be a terrific standup battle provided that Overeem doesn't try to take JDS down.

After what Cain did to JDS, I can't help but think the same thing would happen to Overeem. Considering Overeem packs even more muscle, he would gas even earlier. Couple that with a weaker chin, he might be finished by Cain.

Definitely prefer to see him fight Cain.

It will be interesting to see who JDS gets matched up against. could be a rematch against Werdum should he beat Nog or they may even give him someone like Duffe or Stipe.

Overeem could possibly land an Uberknee on Cain going for a TD. But it would look fairly similar if Cain comes in at his best.

Probably depends if Dana wants a 3rd fight bad enough. Cain got a fairly big name in BigFoot for his return fight after losing the title.

I think Overeem will be a harder match up for Cain, Cain can't be shooting for takedowns like he was against Jds or he will eat a knee.

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

I want to see Overeem vs JDS, but not a JDS coming off a loss.

Let overeem get past Silva, give JDS another fight (say a Nelson rematch), have them both fight for #1 contender.

JDS has to regain some legitimacy after last night before the Overeem fights can get some interest again from a business standpoint.

I'd have had the JDS/OVEREEM fight right away, but the fight with Silva seems to be going down now so...

Cain is a tougher fight for Overeem than JDS stylistically.

I'd love to see both at some point though. The top of the HW division is very exciting at the moment.

I originally wanted Cain vs Overeem but now have changed my mind to JDS vs Overeem first. JDS proceeds to knock Overeem the **** out and then we get to see the rubber match against Cain.
