    Ohh DA, it's good to have you back in the mix, man

    I agree with folks, DC is a lose-lose match for Werdum. Even if Werdum wins, it'll be another fight or two of wins before DC becomes a popularly known serious contender.

    Overall, Werdum/Mir still needs to happen - that's a match I think a lot of us have wanted. And I hope Rothwell to welcomes DC to the UFC and that they scrap DC's SF contract now that the event is cancelled.

    Well at least I can quit worrying about if it is going to happen or not. Put a fork in the November show. It is done. Now for getting my money back.

    I'd suggest that the difference between the Werdum of today in a prospective JDS rematch compared to the Werdum who fought for the SF title in the Overeem rematch is that today's Werdum has alot more developed striking; he's alot more comfortable on his feet, isn't as tenative and doesn't have that sense of urgency to take it to the mat(with him crabwalking and trying to trap a foe in his guard). I think the Nelson fight showed how far he's grown on the feet and with those tools, I think he'd be more equipped to fight JDS, work the clinch to take it down where he wants it, but doesn't necessarily NEED to take it to the ground as badly as he did, say two years ago....

    I personally want to see Werdum against either Mir or Barnett most, as I'd love to see the grappling and think Werdum tools them both.
    He's definitely developed his striking, but idk with jds's boxing lol. Mir or Barnett would be a good match, so is it confirmed that Barnett will also switch over to ufc?

    Forgot about Mir, that would be a great match up as well as Cain if he loses. I'd really like to him fight a strong wrestler just to see how well he'd do against a grinder who's no slouch in top control.

    As for Cormier, I'd be fine with him getting a title shot too, however think he needs to get a UFC win under his belt so he has a little more name recognition, as it may be too soon to rush him into the title shot.

    Ideally, I'd like to see Werdum/Cormier for the contendership(and I still think we may see it), but if given the choice, I think Werdum's earned it more, with more wins over top ten HWs than Cormier and is the more established name, despite Overeem probably making the most "money sense" of all possible "nexts in line".

    I'd say give werdum, Gonzaga, Struve, maybe a rematch with Bigfoot. After that, I'd say Carwin if he beats Nelson (which I think he will)
