Really wanted to see Arlovski back...but think that window has passed sadly. Only Barnett or DC represent fresh faces in the division.
I think BigFoot can stay competitive in the division but he will never be more than either 5-10 fighter.

Im a Cain fan since im from SanJose but people saying that turning your head is not defending yourself is kinda of silly. Turning your head from the punches is exactly that...

But this decision does not bother me. Its one of those decisions were i dont see a need to argue for or against and id be fine with either choice.

Actually I'd like to add that after Hunt knocks off Big Foot's head off...Reem takes out Travis...then The Reem gets his long awaited revenge. Afterwards then he fights for the title.

As long as Cain and JDS are healthy only they can beat each other w/ The Reem having a relative chance. Barnett would put up a good fight, but he'd lose to the #1 and #2 regardless.

Yea i can see Barnett surviving but i really cant see how Barnett would beat either guy. He cant take Cain down and certainly cant outstrike him. Against JDS he will get picked apart standing and JDS is too fast and has too good foot work to allow Barnett to drag him down.

I imagine Barnett being durable and maybe going 3 to 5 rounds but i dont see him getting the W in any way. Maybe submitting JDS but even that is a huge stretch imo.

Yep, what we're witnessing is two absolute dominant forces CLEARING out the entire division. It's pretty cool actually. Every sport needs a one and two.

I still can't believe JDS finished Hunt. If you think about it though...he landed some heavy bombs repeatedly. He's an armoured tank.

But if Cain didn't KO Big Foot I would have been severely disappointed.

As much as i hate Cain, he never took his eyes off Silva's jaw for that one two punch. It was crisp and clean and looked good. Still cant stand him but that was a clean impressive combo.

Yeah it would be really EPIC if these two become long term rivals. Like Dos Santos wins their next fight and then Cain earns his way back to a title shot and then Cain wins and then JDS works his way back. And so on and so on.

Kinda reminds me of the relationship Kakashi and Might Guy have (Naruto). Where they are like 100 wins to 99 wins and then they even it out.

Dude, this is reality. If a fighter turns his head and he still eats 10 punches in a row that's not an "intelligent defense" in any way shape or form.

seems to me like you guys are forgetting a short stocky black dude that's never lost, Cormier has a legitimate chance at getting a belt.
