Werdum already has the next shot locked up

As for Brock, either give him a can, or if they just wanted him to draw WWE fans, they can feed him to a striker w/ take down defense (Timmah/CC) and see if he has a chin. If he gets KO'ed, he'll be out but at least some of the WWE fans will stay

Did AA re-sign? I thought he was out after O'brian

lesnars gonna get someone like Eddie Sanchez. A slow striker who won't be a threat on the ground. He needs a few of these type fights to prove his worth,showcase his ground control,speed and strength, and test his ability to take damage from a less threatening opponent.

Mir vs Sylvia 2
Nog vs Werdum

the problem with mir vs sylvia 2 is that it sets up a situation where timmy is fighting nog a little too soon for my tastes. i love mir and nog but seeing the two of them fight doesnt get me all excited either. perhaps mir vs the winner of kongo-herring...sylvia vs CC would be fun.

It will be interesting to see if anybody can stuff a Lesnar takedown,he looked crazy fast last night ,but just not that smart.

I would like to see Mir vs Nog but I think Werdum has the leg up even though he was already beat by Nog.

Matchups I would like to see.

Mir vs. Kongo/Herring Winner
Slyvia vs. Gonzaga
Lesnar vs. Cro Crop

I'm also wondering if the Nog vs. Werdum will be a headline event (like another title fight). Because if it is I'm hoping they have a good card under it otherwise I don't think I'd buy it.

i dont really want to see the lesnar/CC fight because i just cant see anyone in the hw division being able to avoid his take down and that could make for a tough night for CC. when CC fights i want to see some stand up, not him being put on his back repeatedly

he better watch going for takedowns like he did lastnight. He makes a habit out of that and he is going to taste the better part of someones knee.

I'd like to see Cro Cop back in it, but I'd rather see him against Brandon Vera as opposed to Lesnar.

Verdum already has the next title shot locked up if I'm not mistaken?
I think Sylvia will take on Gonzaga, both are coming off two high profile losses.
I think that Lesnar will get either someone like Hardonk or Sanchez, or the loser of the Herring/Kongo fight. I don't think they'd put CC and Lesnar against each other so soon, they're both huge investments.

My dream is:
Cro Cop vs Vera-doubt it will happen since Cro Cop is a huge investment and so is Vera
Nog vs Werdum- it should be a great fight
Tim vs Gonzaga- I think Tim wins, but if GG can submit tim the UFC woulden't mind
Mir vs Sanchez- Eddies been winning, and Mir should be able to take it but either way it's win win for the UFC
Lesnar vs Hardonk- Lesnar should win by GnP and show he can deal win a good striker.

I do think it will be Cro Cop vs Hardonk, and Lesnar vs Sao Palelie or another C level guy just to get him rolling, or if Kongo loses then they'll feed him to Lesnar.

CC vs Sylvia would be sick

Lesnar vs Hardonk or Sanchez would be a good fight too

the heavyweight division seems a lot more exciting after last night
