    Yeh, I think he's just working down the line between guys he's called out and guys that have said no to DW already. I respect DC and get the sense that he just wants his fight and freedom to join the UFC proper.

    That said, Barry is a terrible match up and a near giveaway to DC. I'd rather see someone with at least an ounce of submission skills or at least someone willing to throw enough of a flurry standing to give DC pause. Barry avoids combos and doesn't grapple... I love the guy, but just a terrible matchup.

    How about Cormier vs Ben Rothwell? Cormier vs. Arlovski? Lol.

    I really would love to see Arlovski come back but I don't see it happening.

    I'm a big fan of the Cormier/Rothwell fight, especially as Rothwell appears to be in surprisingly good shape lately.

    Others have pointed out that Barnett is definitely higher ranked but I think Rothwell has more power to add an interesting element. And his lower ranking in the UFC versus DC's Strikeforce success somehow makes a lot of PPV sense insofar as it's not a losing situation for either guy (like it potentially is for Werdum).

    Of course, all of this is me talking after completely wiping the Rothwell/Hunt fight from my mind. That fight never happened. Never.

    Cormier would destroy Pat.

    Cormier is desperate for his next fight to be a big name UFC guy. They cant just bring him over until he does his last contracted SF fight. They want him to earn a win over a name and bring him into the UFC hot.

    Cormier would beat Rothwell too but it is a much better idea than Barry.

    Thats just dirty...I know HD aint 1 to turn down fights and Cormier just wants to get to fight so anyone works..But to me Daniel calling out Pat, Sounds just as bad or worse than Lyoto calling out Georges..It's just dumb and disrespectful.

    Call out Werdum you Fuck!!! and dont stop until you get him.

    Poor Cormier, can't get out of smelly Strikeforce...

    He should allowed to fight his kidney problems for his last fight... Just hook him up to a dialysis machine in the middle of the cage and let him sit there for 15 minutes.

    If his kidney problems remain, it counts as his first professional loss.

    Damn I keep hoping it is Werdum. I am going to this card, and although I like Pat Barry, I do not want to see him go against DC. I think Rothwell is lower ranked, but I would much rather see that fight than Barry.

    Edit: I mean rothwell is lower ranked than barnett (not Barry).
