No comments on Mitriones' reasoning? I thought he explained himself quite well. He's perfectly right - returning after a long layoff against an in-form guy who is Olympic-level at Mitriones' weakness, that's not a great idea for him.

I think that's a damned good fight as well. But I think that if Werdum wins, he should perhaps go into an Overeem rematch with a title shot on the line. Unless he somehow ruins Cormier with ease. If Cormier beats Werdum and looks good doing it, then I would consider that win to be more than enough to make him the next title challenger. Werdum wins, IMO he'd need a title eliminator first.
The question is - if Cain beats Junior, does Cigano get an immediate rubber match?
