Werdum got Big Nog next. At this point, Mir would be a step down for Werdum. Big Nog is too, but these guys have history, not to mention it gives Werdum a chance to avenge his loss to Nog back in Pride, while moving forward to the title shot.
Mir is coming off a embarrassing performance against JDS. I say give him Barnett.
ps..most of you guys are behaving as if Cormier (a legit Top 5 HW btw) being inserted into a LHW title shot is some kind of WWE-esque, freakshow, entertainment-only move by the UFC. This is DANIEL CORMIER, a true MMA fighter, not Dave Bautista, that the UFC is promoting for a title shot.
