I'd love them to bring Cormier over as a replacement. Won't happen, though.

He would ruin Roy. I'd still watch it though.

I knew something like this was going to happen. Good thing for Carwin in my opinion to because, Roy was going to upset him with his durability and the big right hand

I'd like to see Struve avenge his loss and step in here but I could also see him getting knocked out brutally again. Lavar Johnson may be good too as he has a fight in December and would proably provide a fun fight even if he doesn get pounded out on the mat by Nelson.

Mark Hunt, Daniel Cormier, Josh Barnett or Cheick Kongo. I'd be happy with any of those guys.

Big foot Silva did not have a hard fight against Browne and would make a good match up, or they could promote Pat Barry to the main event ?

Would love to see Hunt and Nelson go at it. Two big guys with iron chins slugging it out

Big Foot just agreed to fight Overeem like a day or two ago.

Not surprised at all. Carwin's body seems pretty shot. Then again I'd be shot too if I took the kind of beating he took against JDS. And if I stopped using steroids. (Not saying that's the case for Carwin.... )

And the tuf coach injury curse continues

Sucks. I don't know what they do.
A month notice. I say maybe pat Barry vs nelson now
Or sign Andre arlovski back

the UFC knew he hurt his knee forever ago, so there is no excuse for them to not have someone on stand-by waiting for this fight. shit, even i knew the fight wasn't likely to happen when Carwin mentioned the injury over a month ago.

Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if Carwin never comes back The dude is oldddd!

Excited to see who they give Big Country instead
Barnett would blow my mind. But I know it's impossible

Ufc knew about the hurt knee over a month ago. They should have had a fighter on stand by

I was told that he WILL be back...surgery isn't needed, just rest. He's shooting for a February return.

I was worried he would be forced into retirement as well. He's very likable but just cannot seem to keep himself into contention.

By February it will be something else... I hope I'm wrong, as Carwin is always fun to watch.
