    We all know Dodson has a win over Dillashaw, so the rematch there would be justified

    JoeBen would continue the Team Alpha male vs Dillashaw rivalary, so that works also

    Lastly, Dodson was considered the 2nd best FW for a while before Cedudo, and its a shame they never got to fight

    Yes, we already saw JoeBen vs Cedudo once, but it was an entertaining and extremely close fight, a rubber match would be justified.

    I'm not sure benavidez would fight TJ. I believe they remain close and joe has even trained with TJ and duane in colorado since the split

    I'd rather see Dodson v Benavidez than Dillashaw v Cejudo. That fight should've happened years ago.

    The real question is if TJ vs Cejudo is for the Flyweight title then TJ should be stripped of the BW Belt IF HE LOSES. Cejudo vs Cruz for the vacant title. There is no way TJ should keep his belt if he gets beat by a Fly Weight.

    That's only a bad stoppage if you hate Dodson. TJ fell backwards without making any attempt to break his fall meaning he was out. Dodson then punched him awake and all Dilly did was grab his feet which every fighter does when they are awaken from an octagon nap. You don't need to play dead to have been KO'd. It's a sport so there will always be an emphasis on protecting the fighter long term.

    That'll never catch on, this is the UFC so one has to miss weight or get injured.

    You need to take a better look. He's not grabbing Dodson's leg on the way down at all. He's just falling with his arms out and his left arm lands on Dodson't leg. I would accept the argument that John helped TJ down with a bit of a push, but TJ was clearly out as he fell.
    It reminds me of the second Silva /Weidman fight. Silva was out in the clinch long before the leg break, but he got punched right back awake. A flash KO is still every bit a KO. ATW I'm with you on not really being a fan of either. I hate Dodson and I don't really like Dilly.

    The way Dodson fights these days, I hope to God we don't have to watch five rounds of it.

    I made a thread advocating for a 135-135 8 man tourney, they should definitely try something out. The 135 strap will be busy for a while with Dillashaw fighting Cejudo and possibly fighting Cruz after that.

    Benavidez vs Dodson
    Pettis vs Sterling
    Formiga vs Rivera
    Figueiredo vs Stamman

    135 is a fairly underrated division

    Nor Dodson, or Benavidez have done anything of late to warrant a title shot at either weight class, so.. no
