    Id be more interested in bigfoot vs mir then mir vs cormier personally.

    I think the best thing to do with Cain right now, is have him coach TUF with another champion as the other coach. Aldo maybe? That would give both of the divisions time to sort out a bit, and fighters to free up from pre-booked matches. Then, both can defend following the show. One on the TUF finale, and one on the next ppv or big TV event.

    Barnett/Silva makes pretty good sense for both guys to me.

    If Barnett loses, DW gets his way and says Barnett couldn't hang. If he wins, he can try to sell a title fight for him in the near future.

    I honestly do not mind seeing the rematch. Everyone else is tied up and Bigfoot is the best option if Cain wants to stay busy.

    JDS - Just got dominated by Cain

    Barnett -Hasn't fought in the UFC yet.

    Nelson - an okay option if you want to see the UFC's first death.

    Werdum - fighting Big Nog

    DC - Fighting Mir

    All the other guys who could have an argument for the title shot just aren't in the picture at the moment. The only other option out there other than Bigfoot is the Struve v. Hunt winner. And right now Bigfoot is a Top 5 HW and Struve and Hunt aren't even Top 10. Bigfoot is really the only option.

    Said it many times before and I'll say it again Overroid is the most overated fighter ever and will never be more than middle of the pack in the UFC.

    I'd like to see it again. You can say what you want about Bigfoot but holy hell, he can beat any man on any day if he lands, or gets you mounted.. He just beat Alistair is devistating fashion, one of the most brutal KO'd I think I've ever saw, give the man some credit. You put him in with Struve, Hunt or Nelson I think he wins all 3, and I am a huge fan of all those fighters. Cain might beat Bigfoot again I have not a lot of doubts but if you beat Fedor and then take out an unbeaten Browne and Alistair with brutal KO's after only losing to possibly the 2 best HW's in the world, Cain and Cormier.. You deserve the shot. He earned his rematch I believe.

    Although Silva vs. JDS makes more sense...I REALLY want JDS vs. Reem and it can be done now, with the winner being right back at the top of the list. Bad blood between those two, and I would like to see JDS get a KO on Reem.

    Same reason why Boetsch got no respect for his win against Yushin Okami.

    I dont think Cain would want that rematch, how do you even build that fight? Bigfoot is way to hot and cold to have earned a title shot, he needs some consistancy before being given a title fight.

    Werdum or Nelson next.

    I'd say there are many rematches that would favor my position concerning rematch outcomes, e.g. Silva/Sonnen, Silva/Franklin, Benson/Edgar; just to name three.

    I'm not arguing that. I just think there's a high probability that Cain will run through Bigfoot again; maybe in a worse way than their first match.

    That's only assuming that Cain approaches the fight with the same genius as Übereem.

    I agree. I'd much rather see Werdum/Bigfoot. However, I still see Bigfoot losing in this matchup as well.

    Nope. He'll most likely repeat what he ignorantly did against JDS during their first match, which was to make sure that show goes forward. Hopefully AKA will keep other people who are sparring away from Cain while he trains.
