Interesting, I see JDS v Cormier being the most thrilling 5 minutes or so in Mixed Martial Arts history... JDS on the outside, tagging Cormier and landing bombs, backs him up against the cage, grinding on his opponent. Cormier, bloody and on wobbly legs, leaps in with a hook or overhand right and levels his opponent, punches JDS out, TKO.

I believe Cain Velasquez could be the end of JJ. Whether it's Brown Pride or not, someone is going to grab one of those legs from the air, and put him on his seat.

But, by then we will could be saying how shattered Velasquez' mandible is

I believe JJ will be pampered, especially if Anderson Silva losses and passes that torch.

Fair enough, and sadly I believe nobody is going to test that submission defense again besides a fighter like Anderson Silva. Next year, JJ will be on his way out of the division. After Sonnen, if a Super Fight with Silva doesn't materalize, I see him making the transition to HW.
