    Yan vs. Aljo winner fights Sandhagen in February

    Edgar vs TJ for #1 contender spot in February (same card as above)

    Cruz vs. Aldo (Legendary fight even though it's late)

    Munhoz vs. Rivera or rematch vs. Assuncao

    Meanwhile Moraes is fresh off a TKO loss, Cody tore his bicep and was going to challenge at 125 (Dana really loves him for some reason), so these are the top fights that we could see within the next 3 months.

    Frankie isn't a number 1 contender anymore. Have you watched his fights lately?

    You’re welcome Sherbro

    He’s still a top 5 in the division outside Yan/Aljo/Cory

    I'd rather see Cruz vs Edgar and Aldo vs TJ.

    No he's not. Aldo would beat him again. I'd take Rivera over Edgar and others would beat him at this point. Edgar's 39, it's over for him.

    Aldo is fighting Chito......

    TJ should get Cruz rematch to avenge split like Assuncao.

    Rebook Frankie/Cory? Sandhagen doesn't deserve a title fight. He got embarrassed too quickly and one sidedly VS Aljo

    Cody VS Marlon

    Munhoz VS Jimmie rematch

    I’d really like to see Chito Vera get a nice fight, any top 10 would be a suitable jump for him ?

    Not bad.

    TJ vs Sandhagen #1 contender
    Edgar vs Cruz
    Aldo vs Vera (already booked)
    Munhoz vs Assuncao 2
    Moraes vs Font (already booked)

    It's a messy but awesome division of contenders.

    Also want to give a shout out to Munhoz. Imo he beat Frankie (dont respond to that harshly I respect opposing opinions) he showed great skills in that fight and I hope he gets a big fight next. Not championship material but a tough fight for anyone not named Yan or Sterling.

    Though it probably shouldn't happen, TJ will be getting a title shot and he's back in January. Cuz of that and Aljo beating Sandhagen, TJ will probably fight Yan-Aljo winner.

    And although I think Edgar could afford a few more wins, him and Corey are the only two top 5's on wins: Cody's moving out and Marlon just got beat. So Sandhagen vs Edgar for next.

    I'd love to see Edgar-Cruz, but Frankie has more recently proven himself to deserve a spot in the high tier, Dom hasn't. So the legend fight would have to settle for Dom vs Aldo

    Aljo/Yan winner won't fight in February, will probably be more like April/May. I'd hold off on booking Cory or Frankie until Aljo/Yan fight. If Aljo wins, give Frankie the title shot with Cory/TJ being #1 contender. If Yan wins, then Cory gets a title shot and Frankie fights TJ.

    Other fights at 135

    Aldo vs Cruz
    Font vs Moraes-happening 12/19
    Munhoz vs Merab
    Rivera vs Yadong Song
    Vera vs Faber
