so, a rematch with cain will be junior's next title defense.
certainly it's the right fight to make given that overeem and cormier will be unavailable. but as much as i like cain, it's hard to know how he can take this fight. JDS seems to have gotten even better with his in-and-out footwork and TDD. cain says that he needs to swarm junior next time, but that's easier said than done. the dude has vicious uppercuts to answer that approach and slick footwork to dance backwards even while throwing bombs against a swarming opponent.
it almost seems to me that you need some kind of floor-based fighter to solve dos santos. someone on his fingers and toes (like jon jones sometimes starts fights) who doesn't put his upper body out there to be attacked... someone who's a grappling machine and is able to attack junior's legs somehow.
or maybe just an excellent kickboxer with a dynamite teep to keep junior at bay. thus, maybe overeem really was the biggest threat to get that done. i really don't know...
