3rd time for Diaz actually.

Nice fights lined up.

According to Ariel, Anderson's next fight will either be Weidman or Rashad at 185 (assuming he beats Lil Nog).

The fight will not be in Brazil.

If Bisping can't control Belcher like he did with Stann, it could be a very long,(or short for that matter), night for Bisping. Belcher's stand-up is a level above Bisping's pitter patter offense.

What happens with Cain and the Heavyweight Title now?

Bigfoot?
Immediate rematch for Junior?

These seem like the only two options for right now, no?

Cain is going to wind up facing Hunt or Struve.

Nelson v Bigfoot should be made for sure. I think that fight was originally set before Bigfoot had to step in v Cain.

Nelson is fighting Kongo.

What about Barnett vs Bigfoot? He needs to fight a top 10 guy once he signs with the UFC.

There was one....and he's now the champ.

The only real "prospect" of sorts I know of would be Struve. Guy is still very young and has a wealth of experience. If he starts to use his range like he has been as of late, he could make some noise. Maybe. Don't see him as champ but I think he can get to the contender level one day.

If JDS was champ and Hunt won I would've been screaming for that, but I just don't see Hunt being able to keep it standing, and Struve really has no business being in a title fight.

Barnett-Bigfoot makes a lot of sense. Chael mentioned Cain-Barnett which would be quite a gift for Barnett, but if the memory of Cain whooping Bigfoot is still too fresh in everyone's mind, that could be an alternative. My initial thought was they'd wait for Werdum, but that'd have Cain off for basically a year, so I'm actually not so sure. I'll tell you who I'd like to see (assuming he's healthy). Carwin. He'd be a tough test for Cain. Granted he doesn't really deserve a title shot, and Cain would likely eventually wear him down, but Cain would have to really earn that first round or two, and I wouldn't be shocked to see Carwin catch him. It would have to be the first time in history a guy got a title shot following two losses, so needless to say that won't be happening.

Struve is probably the only one I can think of. Stipe Miocic and Shane Del Rosario could be decent as well. Of course the idea of Jon Jones vs. Cain Velasquez is awesome.

Yeah it is because I dislike Jon and it'd be great to see him get destroyed.

Rumble hasn't fought anyone good lately but he has still looked good at 205. That's a good weight class for him. I'm surprised the UFC hasn't brought him back yet and I'm even more surprised that he's going up to HW to fight Arlovski.

Maybe winner gets back in the UFC fight. It'd be a nice feather in Rumbles cap if he can he beat and or KO Andrei.

I'd love to see both guys back in the UFC. This fight is more interesting to me than probably 75% of the fights the UFC puts on.
