    Dodson should fight for the title again. I know that if he loses to Johnson again then he'll be done as a title contender. But if he fights Benavidez and loses then you have no one to challenge for the title.

    That would make an amazing card.

    Benson Henderson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov
    Rustam Khabilov vs Cerrone/Miller loser


    These fights should definitely happen.

    Agree here.

    Dodson-Benavidez and Chiesa-Pearson are good too. Not quite with some of TS's other suggestions (Cummins-Rua? Why?) but Bendo-Khabib and Khabilov-Cerrone/Miller loser are killer matchups that make good sense.

    Dodon should get a title shot next and he will get it.

    Bendo/Khabib is def the fight to make.

    I'd do dos Anjos/Rustam since I dont think Nate is gonna come back to fight dos Anjos.

    It would be a good fight to make if Nate would take it.

    Benson needs to just keep winning and hope that Gil beats Pettis. If Gil wins the belt, Bendo would probably be his first title defense with him already holding a victory over Gil.

    I put Shogun because he's 1-3 and is on his way down. While Cummins is a prospect who is on his way up.

    Although in retrospect maybe I should have put Cummins vs Jimmo/Latifi winner.

    I really like Benson vs Khabib and Rustam vs Loser of Cerrone/Miller

    Also, Diego Sanchez vs Jamie Varner is perfect. I think Varner would make the fight exciting and probably knock him out.

    Dodson vs Benavidez and John Moraga vs Tim Elliot are also very good.
