I know he's wary of fighting at HW but truthfully it's his best division

yeah someone like te huna makes sense. rumble hasnt earned a fight with guys like rashad, shogun, or nog yet

It's not the size of the opponent, it's the ferocity of the warrior

Phil Davis deserves to fight a top 5/top 3 guy next, I think he's too highly-ranked for Rumble to come back in against.

I like those options, especially Bader. Let's see how he can do against high level wrestlers, something he has struggled with in the past.

Fav Fighters: Anderson Silva, Diego Sanchez, Hendricks, Weidman, Ellenberger, Wand, A. Pettis, Diaz bros, Mendes, Chandler, Aldo, JDS, J. Jones
