The end of January is rapidly approaching but 2018 is already shaping up to be a great year for the UFC. Following yesterdays blockbuster announcement of a champion vs champion superfight at UFC 226, Cain Velasquez has further stirred the pot by announcing on twitter that he might be prepared to fight team mate Daniel Cormier should he win the belt.
After breaking the record for title defences in the UFC Heavyweight division and turning back the challenge of the next big thing, the question now is, who does Stipe fight next. There is an obvious list of possible challengers, albeit a relatively short one, which can be broken down even further.
Cain Velasquez, Fabricio Werdum, Daniel Cormier, Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar to me are the ones in line.
