I like it. Werdum's been playing games. Wonder if Miocic got paid.

Was hoping they'd make this fight! Cain better be praying that Miocic wins, because I doubt there'll be a fourth fight between him and JDS.

Cains the one with the winning record against JDS, if anything Cain would be more likely to get it if JDS wins.

Prediction: correct Miocic   correct KO/TKO   correct Round 1  

Excellent match up.

Now that JDS has decided not to use his face for blocking and is using better movement and picking his spots this should be a damn fine fight.

Cain vs Werdum should be booked(if they can) for a title eliminator.

*also the movement / physical exertion of "sprinting", be it on foot / flat land - up a hill - in a pool - on a bike -rower - any sort of explosive cardiovascular full exertion engagement is proven to stimulate brain cell growth / vitality ( and much more - look into it ... June dawg ) 

serious though JDS vs STIPE 1 will forever be one my greatest moments as a sports fan ... scoffers and slobs may say "MMA ?? huh ? Derpa derpa derp! ?!?!" I say ; "go watch JDS vs Stipe 1 and ****"

Going from Struve to Miocic is a big difference in scheduled competition, haha (ironically, one of Stipe's two losses is to Struve). 

Good for JDS. This should be a hell of a fight, and not too many more made sense. I'll enjoy the scenario of whether Stipe can avenge one of his losses. 

Cain would have been nice, but the guy is way too damn injury prone, sadly.

Funny how age works in MMA. JDS has been around the UFC HW division for YEARS. Held the belt. Had a rivalry with Cain, wars, etc.

Miocic feels like the new breed of young HW ... and yet, he's older than JDS.

This is the best title fight they can make. Their first fight was wild, and this one has all the potential to be better. Tough fight for Miocic, but I think he'll still take it!

Seems there were some hiccups in negotiations, but Helwani is reporting that it's a done deal. 

Take it to the bank.

If economic-JDS comes out, I think he's more technical and can outpoint Miocic or KO him. That or the miles catch up to JDS and he gets beat up. I predict the former. Great fight though.
