Because all heavyweight roads (eventually) lead to "Cigano."

Barnett gets his skull caved in by Browne's elbows. Now he wants to get his skull caved in his Junior's punches.

This is definitely the right fight for Barnett to get into a Title matchup. However it's also a very bad matchup for him. Junior would finish him under 1 1/2 rounds all day with confidence.

I still want to see JDS vs Miocic.

I don't imagine Barnett doing well against JDS. It would be a fight on the feet, JDS is good at keeping things standing. Barnett isn't Cain, he wouldn't be able to hang or keep on the pressure to frustrate JDS on the feet.

Junior would stuff the takedown attempts and hammer Barnett on the feet to a tko finish within 3 rounds.

I love this match up

I hope the UFC makes the fight happen because I am all for watching JDS knock the shit out of Barnett

it's crazy to think how dominant JDS really is against everyone in the heavyweight division not named "Cain", he's clearly the 2nd best guy but has lost humiliatingly twice to the champ, so i'm wondering what the UFC is going to do about that if Cain keeps his belt and JDS keeps winning fights. I think at some point, these guys will either fight again or Jon Jones comes up before that and takes Cain's belt.

I freakin love Dos Santos but Barnett hits like a mule and we don't know how that last beating will effect Junior. I mean both those Cain beatings were like 10 more wars added onto his career. If Barnett could land something heavy early to stun Junior he could easily win this.

But I agree with the majority. Barnett doesn't have the speed or transition ability of Cain to apply enough pressure without Junior being able to fight back. I'd expect Junior to catch him coming in with something NASTY!
