Five Questions Heading into UFC 121

1. Will the size and strength of Brock Lesnar win out against the speed and skill of Cain Velasquez?

2. Is Jake Shields the next challenger for the UFC welterweight title? Shields will get the next shot at the title if he wins tonight against Martin Kampmann. Shields has to take this fight to the ground since Kampmann will have the clear advantage when it comes to striking.

3. Does going from middleweight to welterweight affect Shields' tonight? How tough was his weight cut as he goes from fighting at 185 pounds to 170 pounds?

4.Is Tito Ortiz still a contender in the UFC light heavyweight division or is he washed up at the age of 35? If he loses tonight to Matt Hamill, what should Dana White do with him? He still has five fights left in his contract.

5.Is Brendan Schaub a legitimate contender in the heavyweight division? If he beats Gabriel Gonzaga tonight, the answer is yes.
