Although Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin for the UFC Heavyweight Championship won't happen for a while, when it does we'll know who's next for the winner: Cain Velasquez or Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Set to face off at UFC 108, the winner of Velasquez-Minotauro is guaranteed a title shot as it'll be for the #1 contender slot.

That makes the most sense. Then the winner out of Gonzaga/Dos santos will face the winner out of Mir/Kongo for the next shot.

Same here. So many good match up possibilities. Crazy to think where it was a little while ago to where it is now.

Yes, the improvement to the division couldn't have come at a better time. Now how many of you think it wont be cold in 1 year? Is the new blood from TUF enough to keep it on top?

meaning the winner of this fight likely has one more fight before a title shot... or an 8 month lay off

Sadly enough, Im hoping Cain loses this fight for the simple fact that I want to see him be built up more before a shot at Lesnar/Carwin.

In my mind, Cain is a mini Lesnar and will just get mauled on by a bigger/stronger version of himself. And Im saying this as a fan of Cain.

Awesome!
I'd love to see Big Nog or Cain against Brock!
(I'd like to see anyone fight Brock. I just like his style.)
I'd like to see if Nog is able to be effective (with his BJJ) on the ground against Lesnar's wrestling. But I'd also like to see how Cain deals with the more powerful equally aggressive Lesnar.
