I assume he will be on the same card as Silva vs. GSP and Fedor vs. Brock?

Love it. They should write Olympic level testing into his contract though.

Or they give him a year of crushing cans on the prelims so they can test him four times.

Are you crazy? He's top 5.

Cain, JDS, Cormier (who won't even be in the division in 6 months), Overeem, Werdum/Barnett.

So even if Cormier stays he is at the very worst no.6. He's a beast and we need him in the UFC..

Cain
Overeem
JDS
Cormier
Werdum
Struve/Mir

Yes I guess w/in top 10... But really where will he go... What will his status be in say a year? I say it will be pretty much the same as now; maybe worse as more talent joins the ranks.

Mir

At best 7th at worst (behind Nog, Silva, Browne, Kongo, Nelson, Struve) 12th. And let me make this clear I hate Frank Mir and I love Josh Barnett but I don't see how you can place him in the top tier. The beatdown Cormier gave him combined with his 8-win streak against non-UFC caliber fighters doesn't put him in the top five.

You'll see after Cormier KOs Mir in R1 or 2.

Barnett would beat Mir handily. I'm basing my rating on ability, not on what he's done lately.
