    Stephan Thompson v Sean Pierce

    Wilson Reis v Brad Pickett

    Myles Jury v Jim Miller

    Pat Healy v Melendez/Sanchez loser - Solid fight between two fighter who are coming off of high level losses. Lets see who deserves to still be in the contender conversations.

    Khabib Nurmagomedov v Benson Henderson - Nurmagomedov asked for a title shot after his win over Healy. Lets see if he's really on that level. The way I figure, the winner of this fight would find themselves in a #1 contender fight.

    Costas Philippou v Tom Watson - Two fighters looking to remain relevant.

    Francis Carmont v Yushin Okami - See how good Carmont's grappling really is.

    Matt Mitrione v GG/Jordan loser - Why not?

    Brendan Schaub v GG/Jordan winner - Seems right with where they all are in their careers right now.

    Eddie Wineland v Bryan Caraway - A Couple guys floating a round that top 10 spot.

    Renan Barao v Dominick Cruz - Hopefully this fight can finally happen and we can unify the belts.

    Jon Jones v Alexander Gustafsson II - Make it happen.

    I'm a Jury fan, but no way he deserves Miller after a performance like that.

    1) He's already had scheduled fights against both of them that fell through.

    2) Who else is there? Rashad, Hendo, and Chael are all booked, Alex and Davis train together, Glover is fighting Jones next, and Machida is dropping to 185. It's one of those two or Bader, and at least Nog and Mousasi are on winning streaks.
