    Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway (this is the fight to make after the last controversial decision)

    Brian Ortega vs Giga Chiadze

    Valerie Schevchenko vs Amanda Nunes

    Robbie Lawler vs Geoff Neal

    Nick Diaz vs Donald Cerrone ( wouldn't be opposed to Nick retiring, if that's what he wants)

    Curtis Blaydes vs Derrick Lewis (Blaydes needs to clear this hurdle before a title shot)

    Jarzinho Rozenstruick vs Tom Aspinall

    Robbie has said he only wants to fight guys that get him excited to train. I don't think Neal is that guy. Also, Valerie ;)

    You're right. I meant if he gets past Yair.

    Ortega vs Chikadze is an interesting fight. Too bad Brian won't be ready for it until 2023

    I hear what you're saying but the fighters who won are usually paired with a fighter
    above them in the rankings coming off a loss.

    Doesn’t seem like Dana cares to make that 3rd fight. If they’re making fights like Pena for Nunes, I don’t see them having an issue doing Calderwood/Grasso winner or even feeding Chookagian to Val again.

    I think they’re trying to line up the Holm rematch, but at 145 lbs for Nunes next. I don’t think Aldana, Ladd or GDR are far from title shots at 135.

    The hardcores have interest in the 3rd Shevchenko/Nunes fight. But I don’t think the casuals care. UFC probably prefers to have both available to add as 2nd or 3rd filler Title Fights on PPV cards.

    dana usually doesn't care about trilogies if one person is up 2-0

    what happens if max wins ? is there an auto rematch for volk ? you are gonna hold up the division for quite a while.

    I got a thread on who I think Volk should fight next.

    Ortega needs some rest time, but when he comes back, someone in the 10 coming of a loss (maybe Yair or Kattar)

    Yawn at WMMA

    Robbie VS Nate Diaz or Jorge Masvidal (let him try avenge his brother, also robbie only wants guys who excite him)

    Curtis vs Stipe

    Jarzinho VS Loser of Walt Harris/Tuivasa fight.

    stop matching winners with losers n vice versa up, you're destroying momentum and eliminating potential contenders while trying to set up rematches (more volk/hollaway bs n that curtis/derrick fight is stupid, only make that if Curtis becomes champ.. )

    I just can't see Stipe accepting a fight with Blaydes now. Not at his age and stage in his fighting career.

    you're probably right, but it's the next best fight for Curtis, if only UFC still had Werdum, that'd be a fun one. Otherwise Daukaus has earned a shot if Blaydes wants to stay active.
