Dos Santos: Barnett or Browne would make sense


With his second loss to Cain Velasquez, Junior Dos Santos is in a tough position. He is good enough to beat a lot of the top fighters, but a fourth bout with Velasquez is a tough sell.

So who is next for Dos Santos? He has a couple ideas of his own:

"I believe it would (make sense to fight Barnett or Browne next)," dos Santos said. "The heavyweight division is in a great moment right now. We have great fighters, and you never know what’s going to happen in a heavyweight fight. One punch can change everything."

Barnett returned to the UFC after 11 years with a first-round TKO win over Frank Mir, and Browne won "Knockout of the Night" bonus in his last couple victories inside the cage, when he stopped Alistair Overeem and Gabriel Gonzaga.

"I don’t know what’s next for me, and I don’t choose opponents," dos Santos said. "I’ll be ready for anyone, but I believe my next opponent can be either Josh Barnett or Travis Bowne."

I'm all for the Werdum title shot. But if JDS slumps him again I'm cool with that also. If you truly believe you're number 1 you should believe you can beat anybody IMO. Irrelevant now Werdum's fighting Barnett/Browne

Ever heard of styles make fight? Just because JDS can beat everyone not named Cain, doesn't mean they don't have the better chance against Cain. Werdum matches up better against Cain since he isn't worried about getting takedown since he'd like ir

Who cares if he kills a contender. If you want to be champ you're supposed to beat every fighter on earth who can make 265. If JDS is better than Browne or Barnett so be it

Fuck this.If Dos Santos wins he kills a contender, and it is hard to deny him another title shot. Who the fuck wants to see that again?If Reem beats Mir (which he should), the UFC needs to make sure we get either Reem vs Dos Santos or Reem vs UFC-Traned Hunt.

But who else here is not a fan of having someone who's coming off a loss fight an opponent who's coming off a win - at least not at or near the top of the rankings anyway?

JDS vs Barnett / Cormier / Overeem are all awesome fights
