Does anyone know what the production timeline is for TUF Brazil?

If the coaches fight in June, when does the taping start? Maybe if it's late enough, they could pull Werdum as one of the coaches and have someone replace him.

Assuming Overeem loses, and there's a need for a challenger at HW, of course.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Winner of Hunt-Struve is definitely the most logical choice. Hunt is on a decent 3 fight win streak while Struve is on a 4 fight win streak. Easy to hype them up.

Otherwise, Barnett? Assuming he wins his next fight.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

So you are meant to train by yourself then?

How do you possibly have two fighters in the same camp preparing to fight against eachother without making one leave?

If Overeem loses than Werdum fights Cain and the TUF fight is cancelled or postponed. I mean we haven't aren't going to see Lesnar/JDS, Belfort/Silva, Nelson/Carwin, and Faber/Cruz III so I doubt the UFC cares about breaking those fights now.

Hell if Werdum wins they might just give Nog a title shot for his last fight.

The other option is Kole Conrad comes out of retirement and fights for the title

Kole Conrad comes out of retirement? That's your next logical conclusion assuming Overeem loses? Interesting. I have to agree with other posters here that the winner of Hunt/Struve makes the most sense if 'Reem somehow manages to lose.

No my next logical conclusion is they cancel the Werdum/Nog fight.

Conrad getting a title shot makes sense as he's higher ranked than Hunt and Struve also he and Cain have history.

Okay, that to me makes a little more sense, except in that scenario we're passing over guys like Barnett and Comier who are legitimate contenders as well.

that's two main guys from AKA that will be out of the question if this goes the route it's taking; with JDS taking at LEAST 3 months to let his whole face heal for the rubber match, and Struve is set to take Mark Hunt in March so we may not get a title fight until the summer.
