I'd prefer it if he was. Even if Roy knocks Cains head off... JDS vs Big Country 2 makes no sense, and does nothing for me. People are flipping over this already, won't be surprised if we hear of another big change in the card.

I hope this is a joke.
UFC is more serious than this, they will not give a No. 1 contender match to someone that is 0-3 or 1-4 or something like that. It is Strikeforce that gave title shots to people that came from a loss.
I really hope this is false. Roy nelson is the last one who should receive a No. 1 contender match.

This smells like a certain Lightweight situation, where Fighter A would get number one contender if he won, but fighter B would not get the shot if he won, even tho they billed it as a number 1 contender fight. Sounds pretty familiar to me, even though I'm blanking on what fight this all happened in before.

I have zero interest in seeing Roy Nelson fight either JDS or Mir, two dudes who absolutely took him to school and in JDS's case, totally fucked him up.

Big Foot or Werdum are far superior #1 contenders, Bigfoot if they do indeed want to give someone coming off a L the shot.

If this is true, we all know that it'll be another 5 rounds of using Nelson's head for a speed bag but you know what, fuck it war Big Country

Werdum or Bigfoot would be the most logical replacements is a number one contender match. Hunt, Barnett, Cormier, hell even Carwin and Nogueira are closer to being contenders than Big Country at this point.

I'm hoping this is the motivator we need to see Big Country lose the weight and hit his potential in the division.

Nobody has dispelled this rumor yet?

I like Nelson, but what a terrible idea.

A lot of people were rallying around Hunt for a title shot. I didn't really agree with that, but Hunt deserves a number one contenders shot more than Nelson. And Werdum. And Rothwell. And the winner of Cormier and Barnett. And probably Browne. And maybe Fedor.

Nah, Fedor vs Nelson probably seems about right at this point.

I love Roy.

But i'm sorry, this sucks. Not only that it's deemed a number one contender's match, for either of them, but that Roy is filling in against Cain. I'm a fan of Roy but he needs a step down in competition right now. There are so many other good fights for him at HW.

Cain doesn't deserve the rematch with one win over Roy. If Roy were to win this fight, it would be his best win, but he still would need a couple more fights. As it's already been pointed out, his record isn't shining right now.

Guillard/Lauzon comes to mind first. If Guillard won he was(mysteriously) getting a title shot, Lauzon destroys him, and Lauzon is barley top10. Im sure theres more, thats just the first one that comes to mind.

Im thinking this would be the same scenario. If Cain wins then yeah I could see him getting the next shot, but if Roy sowhow wins then hes going to need another big win before he gets his title shot.

I completely agree, and the fight you're thinking of was Guida vs Pettis. Guida won, but was still forced to fight Bendo.

Now that im sober I have this to say: This is a Dana White plan. Cain has all to gain, Roy has most to lose. Cain wins, gets number one contender and Roy is once again on the chopping block with 2 losses in a row. And almost everyone would say Cain has all the advantages over roy.

Why not make Werdum vs Cain?
At least Werdum in his last 3 fights defeated Fedor, lost to Overoid and destroyed Nelson.
He is 4-1 in his last 5 fights. That makes much more sense than putting a 1-3 guy in a No. 1 contender fight.

Make Nelson vs Russow and Werdum vs Cain instead.
Damn, even Mark Hunt vs Cain would make much more sense.
