Just announced by Dana at the Trinity College in Dublin. Bigfoot is definitely not ready for another Cain mauling. Excited for JDS vs Reem though!

Looming forward to Junior's comeback, no interest in Cain vs Bigfoot 2.

Shite. I was hoping we wouldn't have to see Overeem drop two in a row.

Cain vs. Big Foot is going to be difficult to hype, but I guess UFC was stuck between a rock and a hard place. Meh... JDS vs. Overeem will sell the event.

I'm fine with that. I personally would have done Cain vs. Hunt/Struve winner but I can understand on them wanting to capitalize off Bigfoot beating Overeem. And they'll play up Cain killing Bigfoot as the same as JDS/Cain 1 how Cain lost quickly but won the rematch.

Hopefully they make it an all-HW card again (at least main card wise).

meh.... not at all interested in Cain - Bigfoot II

JDS vs Reem is interesting enough, but I always thought that JDS would take it.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Hee...hee...oh man! This is going to erase his wins over Fedor and Overeem. Then his confidence is going to be shot knowing his chances of ever becoming champion are quite slim. This will be the beginning of the end.

Personally I would prefer to see Werdum vs Velasquez but I know that Werdum is slated to fight Nogueira and hasn't really beat any top contenders in the UFC. But I will not complain about any heavyweight title fight. It may be interesting to see if Big Foot can come back and put on a better performance then he did the first time. I doubt that very seriously though, I expect Cain to again go right through him. There first fight may have very well been the most one sided fight in UFC history, this one I think might be slightly less one sided but still overall very one sided.

You can't go wrong at all with Dos Santos vs Overeem. Anyway I can picture this fight it ends with one of them getting knocked out. My prediction is that at some point Dos Santos will catch the Reem with a flurry of fists and finish him much like Big Foot managed to do.

Cain is gonna destroy Bigfoot..

JDS is gonna destroy Overeem..

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Feels like Cain and Bigfoot just fought not that long ago in a one sided beating..kinda sucks ohwell.

I would have preferred Werdum..why not scrap the Big nog fight and put Werdum in the title fight? Nog wasn't due to fight till June anyway I believe, they probably haven't even started a serious training camp yet. Minus Overeem (which wasn't even a fight) Werdum has won 5 in a row, one of which was Bigfoot.

JDS Overeem on the other hand is awesome!

And if Bigfoot can get a fight with Cain after a onesided beating..maybe Vitor should get a second shot at Silva too, although fair enough Silva is old and might not have many fights left so I can kinda understand that.

TUF is big in Brazil, that's the only reason I can imagine is that it'll make Werdum a star and then when he does fight Cain it'll be a high profile bout in Mexico and Brazil.
