    Lawler/Wonder Boy- Exciting new match up, another barn burner for Lawler. Book it as the co-main at ufc 200.

    Condit/Rory- The rematch many years in the making. Both just came off a title shot loss

    Woodley/Hendricks- Solid fight that was already supposed to happen. Both guys are solid wrestlers with KO power. Plus its a rematch from their college wrestling days.

    Maia/Brown- Already booked for May

    Magney/Lombard- Already booked

    Dong/Saffadine- good fight for either guy to move up the ranks

    A lot of the fights are affected by who gets the next title shot, There's a lot of questions:

    When does Robbie want to fight again? If it's after July, the Diaz fight is an option.
    Is Condit gonna be given his rematch?
    Is GSP coming back (presumably at UFC 200)?
    Does GSP want a title shot?
    If McGregor beats Rafael, will he want to go after Robbie next?
    Will the UFC grant Conor an immediate title shot at 170?

    If neither Condit, GSP, Diaz, or Conor fight Lawler next, then I agree that Wonderboy gets the next shot.

    Lombard is fighting Magny next.

    I don't know when Rory wants to return. I like the Condit rematch for him though.

    I don't know that Woodley would agree to fight Hendricks, now that he's coming off a loss.


    There's my thoughts. I can't match up the division without a better idea of who's getting that title shot.

    Lawler/Wonderboy

    Rory/Hendricks

    Maia/Brown

    Condit/Diaz II

    Woodley vs. Whoever, I don't really care

    GSP can wait in line if he wants to come back. Wonderboy just absolutely tooled a guy in one round, that many thought beat GSP, so he's more than proved he belongs at the top.

    all i know is since GSP left, the welterweight division has become the most exciting in my opinion. so many interesting matchups, and a good chunk of the top guys can all beat each other on a good night.
