    I don´t like this fight. Far more compelling would be Big Foot vs Mir or Nelson. In case Overeem or Cormier gets injured.

      who doesn’t love a freakshow fight?

    Hopefully it’s a short & quick fight. I dun wanna see two big guys with $hitty cardio go for 25 mins.


    I think Travis “Hapa” Brown deserves a rematch with Bigfoot !! Give Hunto v Stipe Miocic !!

    I like this, give the winner Barnett, give the loser Nelson. If Josh beats the winner of this, then he can be considered a legitimate contender if DC really goes to 205. If the loser can’t get past Nelson then they don’t belong in the top ten. If DC stays at HW he should be next in line, if not then this sets up something other than Cain/JDS 4.
