    I would love Colby Khabib. Khabib is better everywhere, but Colby has the cardio and scramble to make it fun.

    I'm genuinely curious to see how that fight would go. I can't imagine it being as 1 sided as most of Khabib's fights.

    Tony Ferguson vs. Kelvin Gastelum at 170lbs
    Kelvin's not making 170 again.

    Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Colby Covington 170lbs
    This would be fun, Khabib takes it.

    Tony vs. Nate any weight
    Tony for sure. He's basically a more well rounded version of Nate.

    Jorge Masvidal vs. Kelvin Gastelum 170lbs
    Kelvin isn't making 170, I think he'd handle Masvidal fairly easy though

    Alexander Gustaffson vs. Paulo Costa 205lbs
    Gus's heart isn't in it anymore. Costa would fuck him up currently.

    Adesanya vs Usman 185
    Usman wins this. Israel just doesn't have the grappling experience to hang with him, and doesn't really have the KO power to take him out standing.

    Wonderboy vs Mousasi 185
    This could be a cool matchup. I'd probably lean towards Mousasi, however I think both are past their prime.

    Jones vs Stipe Heavyweight
    This might be the most likely fight to happen on the list. Jones doesn't lose fights.... And Stipe is very hittable. I wouldn't bet against Jones in this one.

    I'd still like to see Kelvin vs Whittaker at some point for the blown-up welterweight supremacy. Besides that:

    Gaethje vs Lando
    Big Frank vs Greg Hardy
    PMP vs Masvidal
    Lando vs Yanci
    Geoff Neal vs T-Wood
    Cannonier vs Costa
    Rockhold vs Silva
    Ryan Hall vs Ortega
    Yair vs Emmett

    Very possible and very unlikely seems oxymoronic.

    When I say very possible, I mean I feel both fighters can make the weight.

    I would add Cejudo vs. a woman to that list.

    Great fight the first time. Now, BJ dies in the first round

    So, you just made a list of two well known names where one fighter changes weight classes?

    I got one for you: Souza v Blachowicz ;)

    No way Jorge by flying headkick like Werdum did to Travis Browne.

    We have already seen Jorge do a flying dick kick and a flying knee to the head, now its time to try the flying head kick!
