    6. Alistair Overeem
    5. Bigfoot Silva
    4. Fabricio Werdum
    3. Daniel Cormier

    Mir just fought

    Hunts booked

    Maybe they asked Browne or DC to step in early?

    AO might still be hurt.

    Browne and AO are rumored to be fighting.

    So Cormier?

    My guess is DC. I think his next fight is supposed to be at HW but he claims to be focused on gradually losing weight for a "transition" to LHW. I think the truth is, DC wants to wait until after his teammate Velasquez fights Bigfoot before deciding on his next fight.

    Botter also mentioned a top HW prospect turned down the fight--Todd Duffee maybe??

    Yeah. Browne is booked, or rumored at least so that doesn't leave many HW prospects.

    I don't understand what was the rush in booking this fight. The UFC could have waited till after this weekend to give them more options in booking future bouts.

    I'm gonna throw it out there and say Cain retains the title. This would then leave Silva, JDS, Hunt as all prospective matchups for Roy and Barnett. It would have been more interesting than putting Roy in there with Stipe.

    most everyone is booked. this is just a step sideways to get another knockout until he can get bigger booking.

    So let me get this str8... Roy won't fight DC the Strikeforce HW champion to elevate his career but he will sign up to fight Stipe Miocic?
