Best UFC vs Strikeforce

The best and most appetizing potential UFC vs. Strikeforce matchup for me would w/out question be:

Alistair Overeem vs. Junior Dos Santos.

Overeem has to be the #1 guy of Strikeforce and Dos Santos would be the the most entertaining matchup IMO b/c u know it's gonna be a slugfest.

Next match, i think i'd like Jacare Souza vs. Demian Maia. Any fan of BJJ and grappling would have to appreciate this.

Mousasi vs. Anderson Silva. Probably would have to be at 205 at this point, but would be an amazing fight to watch.

I'm a huge JDS supporter. Huge. But I couldn't rightfully pick him in a stand-up war with a K-1 champ. I'd be much more interested in finding out if Overeem would be up to defending the onslaught that is Cain Velasquez.

What's weird and possibly stupid of me is that I'd take Cain over Overeem, Overeem over JDS, and JDS over Cain. That's just how I see it in my demented little head.

I'd also love Jacare-Maia, Diaz-Diaz, Anyone-Ebersole, Melendez-Frankie, so on and so forth.

Oh, and Diaz-Penn or Fitch.

1. Randy vs Fedor : Up to this point in time, this is the closest and best chance we will ever get to see this finally happen. This matchup has become a Chuck vs Wand pre-2007 type deal. Sure neither is in their prime, but neither were Liddell or Silva and look how that ended up? Maybe the most epic/memorable fight of alltime?

2. King Mo vs Rampage : Catch the youtube video of these 2 at that meet/greet with the public if you consider this to be very random

3. Mousasi vs Forrest : Mo already exposed Gegard's inability to slow down relentless/aggressive grapplers, I suspect Forrest would expose him much the same against a relentless stand up guy. Should Gegard connect early and significant, could be the exact opposite tho.

4. Melendez vs Edgar : Total toss up for me... No outlining reasons as to why id love this, the matchup is just an intriguing one to me.

5. Mayhem vs Leben : 2 charismatic/cartoon characters that will fight to the death. Impossible for me to pick a favorite here.

PS - Your Dos Santos/Overeem fight is a great pick, just didnt want to say the same thing twice...

Gilbert Melendez vs. Frankie Edgar or Gray Maynard.

Werdum vs. Brock, a battle of styles

Josh Thomson vs. Clay Guida, a war

Cro Cop vs. Arlovski, loser MUST retire

And let's have Jason "Mayhem" Miller vs. Chael Sonnen in a battle of who can run his mouth the most.

Aoki vs. G-sots

Could be a BJJ war.
