Oh i agree , for sure , JDS Velasquez 2 comes before JDS Werdum , for a multitude of reasons , i was speaking more as a Velasquez fan worried about him being under prepared for dos Santos 2nd time round , because of a lack of stellar opposition , as well as having both men fight other opponents , a little bit of variation

We still know what we knew about Velasquez pre Silva , he's an animal !!! but I just don't see the rematch going any other way tbh
