Nate vs rory Mac is the only fight that would propel both fighters IMHO. Rory beats Nate, he knock off a veteran and strike force champ. Nate beats rory, he beats a prospect with a lot if hype and he beats gsp's protege .
IMO, that bout between Sonnen and Jones makes no sense. Thus, the ideal would be a revenge with Sonnen, then a fight with the winner of Boetsch and Philippou. Should he emerge victorious of these, a title shot against Anderson would be earned.
