Default cain vs overeem, could it still happen?

i would still like to see cain vs overeem and i think many others would too.
how about they fight but not with the title up for grabs.
it would be a really good headline fight for ppv and be very popular.
whether overeem would be interested or not, probably not. however he doesn't deserve a crack at the title at the moment.
i don't know if dana would be up for it? don't know if he has done this type of match before?

Overeem needs to at least get a win. Obviously the UFC want to give him a title shot because he's a big name. So yea, all these fights are still possible despite him getting KTFO.

I think Overeem against Santos makes sense.

Have Overeem fight JDS and Bigfoot Silva could maybe fight the winner of Cormier-Mir maybe?

Overeem Santos makes alot of sense. Both coming off of big losses to heavyweight players. I have no problem with Cain vs Big Foot. Big Foot is coming off of two huge wins, both after being dominated by the best heavyweight in the world. He has rebounded and can't perform any worse than he did. Sure, he won't be the favourite but beat two players in devastating fashion is all he can do.

In the mean time JDS vs Reem lines up JDS for a title shot or Reem one or two fights away from a title shot.

The best thing about the UFC and gives it credibility is the fact fighters EARN their title shots and in the meantime are legitimised in their division and as the mandatory. Unlike boxing which has become a joke.

Of course not.

Overeem fights JDS and who is Brown Pride going to fight? Too much downtime for Werdum v Brown Pride, Brown Pride v JDS in the summer... When they go to Mexico or Brazil, take your pick. Or Vegas, Vegas baby Vegas!!

Cain would destroy Overeem. I always thought so before saturday nights fight.

I would like to see Reem vs JDS, I would bet money JDS KO's him in the 1st round.

It's unfortunate that Werdum is tied up with TUF and Nogueira.

Meh, I want to see a rubber match more than Fabricio Werdum. Haven't seen him fight in a year, same goes for Mark Hunt.

I think Werdum and Big Nog on TUF is a good thing, and will be a huge fight for Brazilians.

He would have to get by JDS to fight Cain and I don't see him beating JDS... Cain destroys Overeem! He dog walks the reem all over the cage. Cain is better than Big Foot in every way possible and you guys saw how BF slumped Overeem!

Overeem wont even be a threat in the 1st round to Cain.. He looked so slow against BF! Cain would use his wrestling and mix in kicks and punches.. Easy work for Cain. Overeem is a ****ing hype job... Using his own words.. "He would be a dead man" and Cain would "****ing destroy" him!

Well with the power he has in his hands and the fact Cains chin can be broken then who knows.

Big Foot is a welcome contender in adding depth. I understand Werdum is tied up with TUF Brazil but he'll get in the mix too. Carwin needs to get back into it. We are all talking about JDS, Cain and Reem but theres too much strength, speed, power and styles in the division.
