    HW: Ngannou vs Cormier. No one wants to see the third fight. Stipe got knocked the fudge out in the first, and then was dominated for three rounds, came back in the fourth. The fight could go either way, but why waste the last fight of Cormier? Ngannou vs Cormier is the fight to make.
    LHW: Jones vs Rumble. If Rumble can make the cut
    MW: Israel vs Costa
    WW: Nick vs Masvidal
    LW: Khabib vs Fergusson
    FW: Holloway vs Zabit
    BW: Cejudo vs Aldo if Aldo looks good.

    HW: You're wrong, plenty of people want to see the 2 best HWs in the world settle the score once and for all

    LHW sure

    MW sure

    WW Nah Nick Diaz is irrelevant now

    LW for sure

    FW a few good options, I like Korean Zombie there too

    Nick vs Masdival is a money fight. Rather see Masdival move up in competition in his weight class.

    I really think that adesanya vs costa is the first in line now for 2020, only kabib vs tony can equal the difference of hype.

    Lmao at Nick vs masvidal
    Nick is old as fuck and could be considered on a 3 fight skid. But yes give him the number 3 guy in the divison.
    Much better fights to make. Diaz fans need to be quiet.

    If you make one more thread about Nick Diaz coming back, I'm going to report you for wishing bodily harm upon an ex fighter.

    Come on man you know that fight would be fireworks. Nick is only 36 (Mas himself is 35) and it's not like he's forgot how to fight or he's taken a shit ton of damage in the past few years. With a proper training camp and desire to fuck Mas up Nick can make that fight competitive. He's the bigger fighter and he's better than his brother. The shit talk, the build-up, why the hell not! From a business standpoint as well why the fuck throw Masvidal at Usman? He's the new cash cow no need to lead him to slaughter. Plus beating both Diaz brothers is epic in a BMF way.

    I love Aldo but Moraes is going to dismantle him.

    Aldo doesn't get to cut the line with one victory at BW. I'll be surprised to see him get a title shot.

    I don't think Cormier has any interest in a non-title fight.

    If Nick Diaz comes back to fight Masvidal, I'll watch, but I'm not sure how interesting that fight is in 2020. I'd rather see Jorge fight for the title, or fight Edwards for a shot at the title.

    You must really hate Daniel Cormier if you wanna see Ngannou decapitate him before he rides off into the sunset. Cormier is 40, he's 1-1 with the HW Champ, he deserves one last shot at glory. It's not a fight that is going to set the imagination of MMA fans on fire, but saying no one wants to see it is a gross exaggeration. People would watch.


    He could make the cut. Problem is, he might have a tough time fighting with his arms and legs amputated

    This fight NEEDS to happen, and like Adesanya said, hopefully before USADA gets a hold of Costa.

    You people seriously need to stop trying to make the Nick Diaz thing happen. The last time he won a fight Barack Obama was in the first term of his Presidency. And the guy he beat went on to lose his next 7 fights. It's just over dude. Accept it.

    Agreed. Although to be fair, this fight has needed to happen for like 4 years. With all the times it has fallen apart, I'm nervous for when it gets announced again

    If Max gets past Alex, which isn't the lock everyone seems to think it is, then 100% this NEEDS to happen. And if Volkanovski does lose, I hope they put him up against Ortega next.


    No. Aldo is 2-3 in his last 5 and has never fought at BW in the UFC. He needs more than just one quality win before being considered for a title shot. Same goes for Frankie Edgar. The line for Bantamweight title contention starts behind Aljamain Sterling.
