    Anyone but Brock and/or Shogun. Would like the Yoel fight. Best case (or worse case for DC) scenario is Volkan winning and Shogun losing. Nobody wants to see that rematch that soon, and it nixes the BS call by DC for Shogun.

    The UFC isn't taking the chance of a Cormier loss before the Lesnar fight. So answer is nobody.

    I have no interest in seeing Yoel fight DC, he should win at least two fights at LHW before he gets a shot but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a thing. And Shogun still has to beat Smith, who is no easy out and looked particularly vicious at 205.

    So if Gus beats Volkan, then Gus 2 could happen, but if Volkan wins, then pass on defending LHW and just go deal with Bork and sail on. I hate the idea of Bork fighting for a belt but I feel like they're going to force it down our throats more and more.

    I'd list other options before Romero. Picked volkan/Gus...

    Romero would probably be somewhere near the bottom of 10 on the list of ppl I want to see fight DC.

    It should've been Gus before Stipe.

    Meh. Based off of beaten a broken down Glover? I didn't think so. I like that he has to put together an actual streak before getting another shot at the title. Especially since he turned down a fight with Yoel. (Allegedly)

    If Volkan wins I don't see DC vs Volkan so soon...

    Gus came close to beating DC.

    Romero is 1-2 in his last 3 having missed weight twice.

    Who gets rewarded with a shot?

    It was a split decision and a damn close one. Gus is literally the only fighter other than Jones that DC struggled with.

    Well there's no way in hell it should be Yoel or Gus. Lol at Gus fans that think every other fight for him should be a title shot. Maybe if he gets a dozen shots, he'll finally win one!

    yeah but people acting like DC is ducking gus...like what?

    not only has DC said he'd fight gus again, but let gus at least win this first.


    it's like someones always ducking someone no matter what they do, according to sherdog.

    He never cheated against Tim. People are STILL saying this and it's utterly ridiculous. The only one that committed a foul in that fight was Tim. His ONLY offense of the fight came off of a foul. GTFO.

    I doubt DC has anything resembling fear of Gus. He proved how big his balls were when he stepped into the cage with Stipe.

    However, guaranteed he is ducking Gus. Not because he can't beat him but because its not a money fight. He wants Brock for the money, not because he will molest him inside of the first round.

    Who do you want to see Romero fight before potentially fighting for a title at LHW?

    Either a big, strong wrestler like Latifi (after he recovers) or a good striker like Manuwa or Glover. Or, give him the top ten fighter that has been working his way to the dreaded "G" word in OSP.
