I wanted to pick him but went back and forth between him and Barnett finally I stuck with him. And I'm happy I did what a statement that was last night taking out Josh Barnett like that.

With out a doubt we now have a new threat in the HW division. I would love to see him get the next shot at the title but it looks like he will fight at least one more time before fighting for Cains title. I can't wait for him to get his shot at the strap.

That really was a great stoppage by Browne. 2nd time he KO'ed someone with elbows while sprawling. I wanted to pick Browne initially, but I didn't think he'd be able to put Barnett out, so I picked Barnett to grapple him up...

Same here.

Browne is supposed to be fighting Werdum next according to Dana, but it's not like he hasn't changed his mind before. He said only a couple days ago that Rousey would fight Zingano next and he already changed his mind about that.

He said Zingano is still the #1 contender, but she's not even back to full training yet.

Yeah Zingano was just cleared to train jiu-jitsu in December and will be cleared to start sparring March 1st.

I still think it is kind of strange that this fight with Rousey and McMann was booked so quickly. Even though McMann probably stands the best chance I think Rousey waiting for 6-7 months until June or teh 4th of July event would have been okay. I also think that Alexis Davis deserved a shot over McMann. But like I said I think McMann should fair better than Zingano or Davis.

I would like to see him beat werdum. I don't think he's got what it takes to beat cain right now. or junior for that matter. I'm not saying he can't beat cain or junior EVER but just not now.

I'd pick Cain, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Cain put to sleep with those same elbows Browne used on Gonzaga and Barnett.

JDS/Browne is a fight I'd love to see.

I love picking Travis Brown fights. I've picked him by Ko everytime since I've been on the PG. Lost the one via injury to Bigfoot but I do like Browne's odds always. I have a feeling he won't be a dog again unless it's against Cain or JDS.

I could see him knocking Werdum out as well.

I think Browne will KO the hell out of Werdum who is a very similar style of fighter that Barnett is. A fight with JDS would be awesome but the problem is for me what to do IF JDS wins...maybe if they had someone for JDS I'd be more comfortable with it.

This is exactly why I don't think we'll get to see this fight any time soon.

I'd expect JDS to beat Browne personally, and that'd be one less challenger for Cain. Of course, if Browne won it'd be great and it'd make an eventual showdown with Cain that much better, but that's a pretty big "if."

Cain is already lacking challengers. There's no way the UFC wants to risk losing another one for him.

JDS vs Barnett

They are both coming off of losses. In my opinion the fight makes a ton of sense right now.

Leaving Hunt with a possible Big Country match up
