With overeem failing the random somewhat controversial drug test for the all heavyweight main card of ufc 146 , much hope and speculation is going into who will face junior dos santos for the the ufc heavyweight title. That being said , some of the hopeful replacements for overeem are just ridiculous and at times funny. It has made me start to think of other crazy match ups in other divisions and promotions so i wanted all the maniacs to chyme in. Lets start below with 5 dream matchups of mine and then discussion and listing of all yours.
remember these are dream match ups that i would love to see for the fireworks they would bring but im all about staying in the right division for a fighter and or promotion for a fighter.
1. anderson silva vs jon jones at 205 - this match up speaks for itself , striking vs grappling , speed vs length , experience vs momentum and more . This matchup would have me acting like a little kid waiting for Christmas.
2. fedor vs randy couture - this is almost hollywood-esque , usa vs russia , bad guy vs good guy , physique vs skill , grinding vs explosive .
3. mir vs werdum - lets see this one , it would reveal who has the best bjj at hw possibly ever.
4. askren vs gsp - olympic wrestler vs super athletic wrestler
5. prime arlovski vs jds - boom someones out.
