Bigfoot vs. Mir - Big Country vs. Werdum = Winners/Losers fight each other, and Cain gets Carwin.(Considering he was the last guy JDS beat, it does make sense.)

assuming cain beats mir this is the first step in brock returning to the octagon for one last fight. if mir loses i think dana throws brock an offer he cant refuse to come back and have a true retirement bout win, lose, or draw against mir in a rubber match next fall or winter.

I think Cain gets the ko either way, but I would like to see the approach Mir would take. Know he's out right now but carwin always seemed to be a bad much up for Cain..just sayin.

Good, Cain vs. Bigfoot seemed eerily similar to Cormier vs. Bigfoot.
