How can a man that thoroughly outgrappled Josh Barnett possibly be seen as a guy that would get beaten by Bones? Cormier isn't going to just stand around like Rampage and Rashad. He's going to drag Bones to the mat and keep him there until Herb Dean comes to his rescue.

1.)Benson Henderson

5.)Nate Diaz
6.)Jim Miller
and then the next four you can make a case for 8 different guys.
Donald Cerrone????
Eddie Alvarez????
Josh Thomson????
Joe Lauzon????
Khabib Nurmagomedov????
Jamie Varner????
Deigo Sanchez????
Matt Wiman????

For me I would put Lauzon with Alvarez or Sanchez in a main event/co-main event. Not give him a gimme with a one-dimensional wrestler.
I would probably put Cerrone, Alverez, Chandler, Thompson above him. On 2nd thought he may make top 10. But right at the end of it. Dos Anjos needs to start getting some credit.

As awesome as Joe is to watch, his record isn't amazing. He has some good wins, then he was tooled a couple times as well. With a good fight with Miller. That Miller fight probably keeps him at the bottom of the top 10 even though he lost.

I'm talking UFC so I wouldn't count Chandler (though I do think he, Hawn, and even maybe Aoki could be ranked ahead of him. For me Josh Thomson is like Sean Sherk yeah on paper he's a top ten guy but he doesn't fight enough to really give him that respect. Thomson/Sherk would be a great fight BTW.

I think their is a very clear line of MMA math in the division right now with.

Gray Maynard
Nate Diaz
Jim Miller
Joe Lauzon
Jamie Varner
Melvin Guillard

With everyone else(WEC and SF guys) just on spec. Dos Anjos would be a better fight than Healy but I think that Lauzon coming off two FOTY candidates deserves to be in the Main Event level not prelim's or card openers.

I'm loving this card.
First of all DC Vs Mir will be fun, I hate Mir but will never count the man out again, as he broke my heart last time.I think DC will keep it standing and murder Mir on the feet.

As for making this a strikeforce Vs UFC card, I really hope this is what they do. I think they should add Healy Vs Varner, Jacare Vs Shields, Kampmann Vs Saff.

I think that you Shields Vs Jacare would be a great fight. Shields gets a lot of hate, but he has great JJ. Is he on the level of Jacare? Maybe not,but this is why I want the fight. I'm a Shields fan, and believe that he is still great, and one of the best grapplers in MMA. He needs to improve some aspects of his game though for sure. People over look Shields now, since he poor performances in the UFC. The man still beat Hendo, keep that in mind. and If this fight happens, I'll take the bet.

I wish Palhares wasnt stupid enough to go and get caught for banned substances, because him VS Jacare would be an awesome fight to watch. I think Palhares would stop Jacare.

But I won't complain if Weidman fights Jacare, so he can beat his ass.

Definitely not. Palhares isn't on Jacare's level either. Maia, Jacare, Roger and Werdum are the best, then Palhares and Magalhaes. Shields couldn't hang with any of them.

Here is Jacare tapping out Marcelo Garcia in 2 minutes in nogi, Shields would be done for way too quickly.

Yeah Jacare is great and so is Marcelo.. Well both are amazing not just great. But Shields is more around Jacares size, and in an MMA match I think Shields give Jacare a little trouble on the ground, just purely grappling Jacare would beat Shields. I'm not claiming that Shields has better BJJ than Jacare, but I believe that Shields could still win the fight, and could catch Jacare.

I wish we could see Jacare and Palhares

I think the UFC will add one more big fight to this card.

And, on a side note, I hope the UFC exiles Barnett to Siberia. He had a second chance and he killed Affliction. If Bellator is stupid enough to sign him, let them.

Thats stacked but there is a PPV one week later and I am afraid that the PPV will suffer. Wont be buying PPV tickets because I do not want to rely on one fight.

Too bad. I had high hopes for Cormier but now that he will maul Mir he will probably never win a fight again after that.
