Although, besides Reem there isnt hardly any top guy JDS hasnt dominated. Maybe Cormier and Barnett later on, Id love to see Mir vs JDS, just to add another decent name to Ciganos W column.
Yes JDS beat them both however Cain just got caught and is still a top 3 guy. In a rematch if Cain avoids those bombs he could beat JDS. And Werdum is clearly a different animal these days. I say he could hang with Jr.

JDS would liquify Werdum's brain for a second time if they fought again. Mir did basically the exact same thing to Fatty as Werdum with knees. JDS would destroy Mir also just because it is a terrible matchup for Mir. Overeem and Cain are the only real threats to his title aside from maybe Cormier who we haven't seen enough of yet.

Yea, I still think Werdum gets merked by JDS, as well as Mir. JDS is a nightmare match up for both fighters.

Overeem will beat JDS if he gets one knee in might be over just from that.

Cracks me up, this silliness that Cain could beat JDS in a rematch.


JDS made Cain SO uncomfortable standing and then blasted him with an easy combo, Cigano didn't even have to cut any angles or throw anything tricky to put him out cold. Oh yeah, and he had a major surgery-required injury before the fight even started.

Reem is going to be an easy fight for JDS, he's going to wilt so fast it will be almost disappointing. I'm not sure who a tough match up for him will be really... Barnett if he had an iron chin maybe? Carwin if he could get JDS down a ton of times and work some GnP?

You also have to remember that JDS is 5 years younger than Mir, almost 5 years younger than Overeem, TEN years younger than Carwin, 7-8 years younger than Barnett, 5 years younger than Cormier... Cain is only two years older than him but JDS isn't even in his prime yet, not even close.

WAR CIGANO

could be useful. You can run a truck over it and he'd still be coming at you.

Its a shame that Werdum showed some of the best clinch work since Anderson sent Rich to MW and its totally eclipsed by people wearing Diaz blinders.

Great return by Werdum and I am really interested in seeing his continued improvement. Some of the best BJJ in MMA and he just displayed one of the best clinches. With Werdum's ever improving stand up the guy is establishing himself as a true upper echelon fighter.

Time to put on Mir vs Werdum. If Mir submits Werdum that would put him on the MMA pedestal as one of the best MMA grapplers. Doubtful though...

I always thought Werdum was a dope fighter. A little slow though, but very promising. He'll be in the top five, but won't beat JDS, Cain or Overeem.
