1. Cain Velasquez vs. 4. Fedor Emelianenko
My Take: Call me crazy - but I like Fedor here. The problems he encountered in Antonio Silva don't really exist with Velasquez, who like Fedor, is a smaller heavyweight. Take into account Velasquez's potentially career altering injury and I think we're looking at an upset here.
2. Junior dos Santos vs. 3. Alistair Overeem
My Take: Here's another fight that seems tailor made for the Strikeforce champion. Dos Santos is a very good fighter, but his strengths collide with Overeem's. And the Dutchman has more tools in his toolbox.
