LAS VEGAS – On Saturday at UFC 156, Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva derailed Alistair Overeem's planned title shot and threw the heavyweight division into a bit of chaos. Even UFC President Dana White isn't sure what to make of it.

Don't know why Barnett would get the title shot.

This means that if Mir somehow defeats Cormier he gets another title shot. Overeem and JDS will probably still happen with winner getting the following title shot. or the next depending on the Mir/Cormier outcome.

Silva will never get a shot unless he goes through JDS.

cormier vs valasquez will never happen. it would be a much bigger accomplishment for those two fighters if valasquez had the HW belt and cormier took the LHW belt form jones. as for barnett, i dont see him ever getting a title shot again in the ufc.

Werdum is supposed to get the next title shot with a win over Big Nog.

Barnett vs Bigfoot for next title shot.

Struve vs Hunt winner has to be in the mix somewhere...winner vs Cormier/Mir winner?

God damn Reem had to ruin everything!!!!! I don't care how much faster he thought he was then BigFoot. Reem was dicking around like he was Andy fight Maia.

Bubbles is right though, a win over Big Nog puts Werdum in front.
