Even though it looks like dos Santos Velasquez 2 is imminent , i feel its a little wrong to just give Velasquez another crack at a fight he lost so decisively last time out
I'd imagine the UFC's perspective is two fold. One Velasquez is much more marketable than Werdum and two he did do them a favour not pulling out of the FOX fight when he went down with an injury.
Also everyone pitching Cormier for JDS or Barnett for Velasquez is overlooking that both men jacked their hands last Saturday and so won't be available to fight for a long time. And at least Cormier, HAS to have his next fight in Strikeforce.
