    Recently I read that one FC's MW champ will be fighting a HW in a 5 r ROUNDER. This got me thinking about OW fights in the UFC.

    I know we've had them in the early UFC days and in Pride. Which reasonable matchups would you like to see in the UFC? Nothing stupid like DJ vs Lesnar.

    Easy. Match a top 5 lightweight vs top 30 middleweight. Top 5 bantamweight vs top 30 lightweight.

    Barboza vs Lombard
    Lineker vs Gomi
    Wonderboy vs Villante

    Jacare vs Werdum seems like it could be cool if they made a Saku/Newton type gentleman's agreement.

    Mighty Mouse vs top 15 BW, then FW and so on to see how far he can get. Once he can't beat the #15 in a weight class change to top 30. Then top 100.

    Bellator- after Gegard wins 185 title, Coker let's him enter this heavyweight tourney and he fucking wins it.
    Two division champ but not the 2 people were thinking.
