    Cruz/MM Hands Down... They've fought before. That being said I would like to see Cruz/Conor at 145, or Conor/Alvarez at 155... Or Barboza after he takes that strap.

    Conor/Cruz. I don't like Cruz and would like to see Conor beat him.

    Cormier vs Stipe would probably be the closest matchup because a lot of the others are weight mismatches

    Cruz vs. MM/Conor would both be fun.

    You forgot Woodley vs Nunes, I think he's looking for that fight!

    Yeah Cormier vs Stipe would be a fun fight. I would favor Stipe in that matchup I think he would win a UD.

    So long as it isn't Wonderboy I think he's down!


    I'd like to see Woodley vs Bisping (or Wonderboy/Bisping if Wonderboy wins!), Conor vs Alvarez (once Conor defends at FW a couple of times) or Cruz vs either Conor or MM.

    I very much doubt Bisping faces Cormier. Cormier may want to fight Stipe but I doubt Stipe would want to fight Cormier. So I can't forsee any 'champ vs champ' matches in the higher weight classes.

    Conor beats all of them.

    Conor vs Miocic would be fun. I got Conor by body shots when fighting those huge fighters.

    I agree, he beats every single fighter in the UFC...except Nate Diaz.

    I like that fight and it's one that could potentially happen if Conor beats Nate. I'd favor Alvarez, he is the more complete and experienced fighter but Conor could get the KO I think.

    Alvarez vs McGregor is most likely. It could happen this year if Conor beats Nate.

    Mighty Mouse vs Cruz could happen but not until next year. And they'd both have to keep winning and stay healthy

    Cruz/McGregor is a good fight.
