    Matt Mitrione vs Shane del Rosario makes most sense to me to keep Matt Mitrione in the UFC. Otherwise Travis Browne would be good since they both look like they could do their trash talking from their tanning booths

    People saying Roy Nelson should fight Pat Barry, Mark Hunt or Travis Browne.. no, Roy Nelson is a much better fighter than them and always fighting contenders/future champs/ex champs. The Pat Barry & Mark Hunt's of the UFC can fight Matt Mitrione

    I want to see the following match-ups for Roy Nelson

    Roy vs Cain (if he loses to JDS)
    Roy vs Silva/Overeem loser
    Roy vs Daniel Cormier

    Matt vs SDR seems pretty good.

    Roy should fight Hunt, I think. I`m not opposed to him welcoming Cormier though.

    Mitrione vs Browne would be fun, I know people are opting for country vs Browne.

    Browne stands a bit higher in the rankings but it will still be fun

    I want to see Roy fight Rampage. Rampage isn't relevant for title contention and there is bad blood. He also hates to cut weight so why not. Roy is deserving of higher end opponents but I'd pay to see this fight and I bet others would too. I don't see Roy beating Junior. He can't take him down and Junior ate a few shots from him. Roy is tough as hell and I'd like to see him get Rampage down and rub his belly on his face.

    HW fights in 2013 have some serious potential. Hunt should fight Cain after his loss, Jds v Reem, Nelson v Bigfoot, Mir v Barry, Cormier v Werdum and Barnett v Carwin..... Yum

    Big Country can fight Cain after JDS beats him.

    Don't really like.

    That's an automatic Loser Leaves Town fight. They're probably both too good to deserve that.
    Mittrione's had to face two straight top 15 opponents.
    SDR's been rebounding from a serious accident and clearly won the first round of both his losses.

    I'd give them both a break:

    SDR - Morecraft
    Mittrione - (Duffee/DeFries loser)

    Barry can fight the WINNER of Duffee vs De Fries
