    I'm sorry, but several of these fights make zero sense, mostly because you have winners fighting people ranked below them.
    -Eubanks is already scheduled to fight Moras
    -Correia is ranked lower than McMann. All risk, zero reward.
    -Kish barely did shit tonight. Definitely doesn't deserve Antonina, who would fuck her up anyways.
    -Allen was recently ranked, will be ranked again this week, and was originally supposed to fight Emmett tonight. Why should he have to fight someone who isn't ranked after winning?
    -I get that the HW division is being held hostage by the Stipe/Cormier 3 bullshit, but why in tf would Blaydes jeopardize the title shot he surely earned tonight by facing a dude who's a knockout threat like Lewis?

    That's fair enough. All matters of perspective. I'll give you a couple of explanations as you make some valid counters.

    1. My bad about eubanks. Wasn't aware she had a fight lined up. I'll take a look and see who else can fit.
    2. Correira is lower than mcmann yes but the reason I put them against one another is how similar trajectories they've had. Both got blown away by Ronda and have had some rough losses since. Only just snapped losing streaks, so it's a chance for one of them to get a 2 fight win streak going.
    3. Kish fought terribly. Will give you that. My reasoning for this was simple. Both coming off wins over pudilova. I agree Shevchenko batters her.
    4. Allen is a tough one as Lentz was a good win for him, while I felt that emmett was perhaps a case of a little too soon. Wanted to give him a tough veteran opponent with name value like cub before throwing him out there against emmett.
    5. Both Derrick and Curtis want the fight. As I see it, as good as Curtis looked. He still shouldn't get a shot over Francis. So while we see what happens with Francis and rozenstruik. Might as well have the grudge match between derrick and Curtis.

    None. This was probably the worst event in the past 2 3 years

    Straight up in the past like.... 15 years... This was the only event where I watched 1 fight. Am I a casual now?

    DHK hasn't fought in nearly 3 years and shows no signs of interest, to my knowledge.

    RDA vs. Condit if Carlos isn't retired.

    Loser retires, winner gets another chance to shine.

    That's a horrible matchup stylistically for Chiesa...

    I'd love to see it.
