I see it ending up JDS vs Cormier then from there i dont know if JDS can handle Cormiers wrestling but he has proven to have a good TDD

Cormier never cease to impress me, but I think Barnatt experience is going to help him alot in that fight.

Finally the HW division in the UFC is interesting now !

The winner of a match-up between those two would have to be THE undisputed HW champion of the sport...maybe its first ever.

So who would it be?
I think thats fair to say

One would think dos Santos will blow them all away

I like it and it should be done. My question is will the UFC allow Barnett back in if he beats Cormier ?

Barnett has shown in the past he has problems with strikers with good take down defense. Cro Cop beat him 3 times... I don't think his standup improved that much. Cormier is still an unknown.

I think they will let him in if he wins, despite the steroid issues and relationship he's had with Dana in the past.

If he loses, they will probably cut him.

Dos Santos versus Overeem 50/50. I am picking JDS by KO, though.
Cormier versus Barnett 50/50. I am picking Cormier by decision.

Dos Santos versus Cormier 70/30 I am picking JDS by KO

The UFC champion is the number one heavyweight in the world. Overeem has his chance coming up so the winner betweem he and Dos Santos will tell that tale. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee the winner of the Showtime tournament will ever fight in the UFC. In the event the winner of the tournament wins the follow up fight which I predict will be against Fedor and then fights the winner of Overeem/Dos Santos - then the UFC champion will still be the number one heavyweight in the world and no one will be able to dispute it in any form or fashion.

Barnett vs Cormier winner is unlikely to be the number one contender as they're contracted to fight one more time with Showtime

Why wouldn't Josh sign with the UFC? He's essentially employed by the same company anyway since the merger, just by riding out the SF contract. If he really had objections about working for them, he'd have just walked away. It wouldn't be the first time he'd ****ed over a promotion and burned bridges.

It almost goes without saying that Daniel will.

There's no reason not to expect that the Grand Prix winner will go on to challenger the UFC champ. (as long as there isn't an upset in that contractual post-GP swansong under the SF banner)

Because of a beef that got personal between Dana and Barnett. Basically Dana was being a c*nt. I believe they buried the hatchet though -sort of- not long after Affliction folded. As Dana said quit vehemently he would never allow Barnett back in the UFC. Then again Dana says a lot of stupid shit. And he'd have to be a complete moron not to let Barnett back in the UFC. Even if he does he's still a moron anyway

For what it's worth, Barnett implied on Twitter that both he and Cormier will be coming to the UFC, regardless of who wins the fight between them.

Also, if JDS can defend against Overeem and then Barnett/Cormier, he's challenging Fedor for the title of greatest heavyweight ever.
