Here is a picture of Werdum from SF:



Werdum weighed in at 228lbs for this event, which I think the leanest he has ever been. I'm sure he could lose a few pounds and dehydrate himself enough to do it. If Anthony frickin Johnson was making Welterweight...

I don't think at his age or at this point in his career it would be a great idea, but he does match up really nicely with Jones.

Much better match up than Browne vs Miocic. Barnett should get the sub via arm triangle. I imagine whoever wins this gets the next shot. Browne vs JDS would be great but any other match up sounds terrible.

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

I like this fight. Not at all for Miocic/Browne. Barnett/Werdum would be sweet, but I really think Werdum should wait and see if the winner of the title fight gets beat up or not. HW is so thin that you can't waste contenders. I even don't mind the thought of tune up fights. Match Werdum up with a very beatable guy. They do so many free cards, he could beat up a 10-15 type guy in Brazil to keep busy. Tune up fights should be used more often in my opinion.

Imo Werdum could beat Velasquez, so it'd be a fight I'd love to see and would be crazy to have him work his way up to it after his story in the UFC.

Browne would probably be outlanded by JDS all night if not stopped. I see a big mismatch, though I'd like to see this fight happening.

I think JDS would murder Browne.

I think Barnett will and should be the heavy favorite going into this. Browne is solid, but I don't think he has the tools to defend what Josh can attack him with. R1 Sub for Barnett.

I like MMA less because of this forum

Great fight! Makes a lot of sense considering where they're at. HW is always my favorite division but it's very shallow right now; I would be fine with the winner of this getting a title shot against the winner of the unnecessary trilogy.
