I still think it's gonna happen. Now that would be a showdown; Cain vs Fedor. Blame it on Vadummy.

Wonder if Arlovki will ever make a comeback.

Did you watch Velasquez vs. dos Santos?

How does a shot behind the ear mean he has a glass jaw? That's the worst spot to get hit on and it doesn't help the guy that hit him hits like a truck. Even if he had get hit on the chin, getting knocked out by the guy with the heaviest hands and best boxing in the division does not mean you have a glass jaw.

Take that non-sense to Sherdog.

Great fight, I thought Mir would get Cain but this is just as good. Cain is favourite, but I'd be surprised if he handles Silva like Cormier did. I actually think Cormier has better hands than Cain, but Cain should be too slippy for Silva if the fight hits the fence/ground anyway.

Should be a good comeback for Velasquez, but Silva is dangerous and CAN overwhelm him.

Who does Mir fight next then?

Kongo only didn't KO him because Cain has good recovery and wrestling and Kongo has questionable TD defense. Kongo was almost dropping Velasquez at will in that fight. Cain is a great fighter but if you can't see that he is the next Arndrei Arlovski than your just not paying attention.

That said this will look like the Mike Kyle/BigFoot fight but Cain will finish it when given the chance. BigFoot is to slow and immobile for Cain.

fun fight, i think bigfoot has massive potential, he just needs to learn how to use his size better and fight smarter

hes a pretty reckless fighter, maybe after Cormier stopped him (btw, cant wait to see him in the UFC also, guy has massive potential) maybe now bigfoot will be more careful and instead of slugging it out with every1 he can play it safe and use his size to smother guys on the ground

so cain should take this easily BUT if bigfoot fights smart i think he could pull off a win...come to think of it cain hasnt really beat many top HWs, his biggest win is lesnar while bigfoots biggest win is fedor...

Brock vs Mir (I actually picked Brock to win the first time around. Ironically I think that version of Brock "might" have beat Overeem back in Dec. 30th even though I picked "The Reem" to win. If anybody wants to debate it let me know.)

Overeem vs Brock (don't tell me you knew 100% that Overeem was going to win. I picked Overeem, but even I was unsure.)

Big Silva vs Cain...haha. It should be a very good fight. This aint a gimme at all for either.
I was thinking exactly the same thing, but it makes sense as it'll raise the overall level over time, taking only the best of the best, no one is safe, even those already on top of UFC's food chain
