Yet again the entire thread completely overlooks Glover... If Glover wins, I would imagine a rematch is next.

Personally I think the matchup should be dc and davis with the winner getting a title shot. That makes the most sense.

  OK so what you are saying is Hendo should not fight JBJ right now. He's not. If he beats Cormier he will justly. Next case

  How long has it been since Davis won a fight CLEARLY vs a top 10 guy? If Hendo beats Cormier he's ahead.
