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.
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
