It wasn't that much a surprised. Big foot cant really take a punch is fight against Mike Kyle was a good exemple of that...

I thought Fedor could capitalize on that but he was so wild and sloppy that night...

To be fair, Kyle has a pretty good punch himself. He's a really big LHW like Jones.

I really can't see a small, fat man defeating Junior dos Santos. Not at all.

By all accounts he's a light heavyweight. But he's doing fantastically well at heavy. And has an excellent win over Big Foot. Personally believe he can do a much better job than Cain as he's almost a Dan Henderson-esque type of fighter. Great hands and excellent wrestling.

I think he has a good chance at beating Barnett. He will be a good addition to the UFC roster.

He's a good fighter for sure, but I don't see him beating Barnett or cutting it vs the best superheavyweights.

Smart money goes on Barnett. But bet your life he's going to give Barnett a lot of problems if his victory over Silva is anything to go by. He certainly has heavyweight power in those mitts.

If Barnett can't take the fight to the floor, he's in a world of trouble. But Barnett is so strong and so experienced, I think he'll get it there and have his way with Cormier.

Do you see Cormier definitively beating UFC top 10 guys like Lesnar, Mir, Carwin, Nelson?

Although Barnett has the better subs Cormiers top control is going to stiffle Barnett. On his feet he has his work cut out too. Barnett really needs to bring his A game.

Personally i could see Cormier beating all 4 of those men.

I fancy Barnett to control Cormier on the ground. As good a wrestler as he is, Barnett is massive and a master at ground fighting in MMA. Should be a cracking fight either way.

I can see Cormier beating Lesnar, Carwin and Nelson, but I think he'd struggle with Mir. There's a huge difference between a fully motivated, fit, confident Frank Mir (a la the Nelson fight) and a complacent, blunted Mir (as in the Carwin debacle). The way Mir dominated Nelson makes me think Frank's size, strength, well-roundedness and incredibly improved striking would make him too much for Cormier at this stage in Cormier's career.

But if Frank turns up in the wrong mindset, he could easily get Bigfooted.
