    He should be fighting someone at the level of Mousasi or David Branch.

    Vs Manuwa or Oezdemir. Great fights. They'll probably go with someone in the top 20 though.

    Corey Anderson seems about the right skill level for Saki to beat up.

    Manuwa is already fighting at the card in Poland.

    But maybe down the line we could see it. Manuwa usually stands with his opponents but that would not be a good idea vs Saki. If that matchup ever happened we might see the one and only appearance of D1 Manuwa

    An escalation of competition, but a neat matchup. Maybe Tyson Pedro or Bearjew first

    Great match up but knowing UFC match makers they'll give him some grappler

    I would be hyped for that fight but that might be too early for Saki. Corey has above avergae wrestling for the current LHW division. There are plenty of other guys that have weaker takedowns that I would rather see Saki fight.

    Not saying they need to protect Saki and baby him, but damn we need to give him just a LITTLE bit of development because he is still so raw and only has 2 MMA fights. I would rather him fight once or twice more before fighting a decent wrestler like Corey.

    Although I loved Saki's takedown defense the other night and how he just pushed himself away

    Jimi would be going constant take downs and would probably get them.

    He won't stand and bang.

    Nope, Manuwa already became a wrestler like 4 fights ago. I just don't remember against who.
