I really like CP but he is just not ready for what Jacare brings to the table. BTW... Jacare is the real Strikeforce Champ...
No doubt in my mind that Jacare is the best MW fighter coming over from SF and he would win a rematch vs Rockhold. However I didn't have any problem with the decision in their first fight. I thought Jacare took him too lightly and paid the price for it. But I still think he is the better fighter.

Sweet. Should get another nice chunk of FFL points from Jacare again.

Looks like it's all building to Jacare vs Lombard for the next title shot (after the winner of Belfort/Rockhold).

I think a lot of people are underrating CP's training with Wiedman and Serra for on his ground game. Ed Herman was a gimmie fight this one not so much.

I wouldn't mind that one bit. I think both are interesting fights for Anderson.

I wouldn't mind that as well. I've got Jacare beating CP.

I don't doubt CP is working hard with some really good people on his ground game, but Jacare is world class. CP isn't there yet.

Who is left for either guy?
It isn't always about putting top guys against top guys. Costa himself specifically asked for the winner of Silva/Stann. I'd much rather see that than this mismatch.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I think CP is a great fighter. But Jacare is more rounded as a fighter, and has amazing BJJ. Costa is a great striker.

I'm not sure what they are doing to set guys up for Anderson.

Someone mentioned Lombard/Jacare set up. But I think Jacare got the easier fight.

Really? seems clear as day to me

Chris Weidman - July 4th
Winner of Vitor Belfort/Luke Rockhold - Winter
Winner of Jacare vs Lombard - Spring 2014

With Carmont, Gracie, Larkin, Munoz, Stann, Le, Costa in the mix for a possible summer title shot.
