    Would be awesome to have these all on one card, an all-FW affair, like UFC 146 was all HW.

    Max vs. Frankie
    Aldo vs Cub II
    Lamas vs. Zombie
    Elkins vs. Ortega
    Siver vs. Maynard
    Yair, Superboy, and Bektic all get tune up fights.

    Assuming that Aldo vs. Cub is a title eliminator there is no need to go eliminating other contenders. Especially a fresh one like Ortega by having him fight a top five guy without a title shot on the line.

    Ricardo and Zombie were scheduled to fight before, might as well restore the matchup.

    Elkins is a tough but not elite test for anyone and I'd like to see how Ortega could deal with him.

    Gray and Dennis both get a winnable fight with a chance at another meaningful name on their resume with a win.

    Feed the young prospects coming off of losses some cans until the title picture starts to open up.

    Wouldn't be a bad idea to have cards dedicated to a particular weightclass, another advantage is that it would be easy to reshuffle things if a headline fighter pulls out as they are plenty potential replacements ready to fight.

    I think Ricardo should fight Ortega and Zombie should fight Stephens, winners fight each other for a n1 contender fight. Elkins should be fighting Holloway/Edgar loser

    He didn't look that great in his last fight. He was losing the fight until the sub. He will get found out sooner or later.
