    Nice thread. My list would be pretty much the same as yours, but I'd probably put Hunt vs. Mir and Holm vs. Tate ahead of Maia vs. Brown.

    Your list nails it for me, I would probably reorder a bit.... And opening myself to be made fun of, I really am looking forward to the spectacle of cm punk getting beat up by a 2-0 guy, if he ever actually makes it to the cage

    You handing out homework bruh? ;-)

    c'mon now. I'll enjoy watching all those fights. I am most looking forward to DC/Jones and RDA/McGregor. I think I'm going to miss the champion vs champion fight live though. I'll have to catch it that Sunday probably.

    Ooooh, Rothwell/JDS, kind of forgot about that fight. Been digging Rothwell's path lately.

    1. Jones/DC (this is legit beef and I like DC's chances in the rematch)

    2. Khabib/Ferguson (guaranteed fight of the year)

    3. RDA/Conor potential history maker

    4. Holly/Rhonda 2 so Rhonda can get KTFO again

    I don't know how you could possibly be excited for the Rockhold vs. Weidman rematch it was a beatdown last time.

    Nice refreshing thread that's related to actual fights, it's a good change up from the usual "How much would you pay for the opportunity so suck off Sage Northcutt?", "Which WMMA fighter do you masturbate the most to?" and "*Insert Random Mystic Mac Quote" drivel that usually floods the heavies

    For me it's

    1) Bones/DC II
    2) Conor/RDA
    3) Mir/Hunt
    4) Jedrzejczyk/Gadelha II
    5) Gaethje/Foster
    6) JDS/Rothwell
    7) Werdum/Stipe
    8) Anderson/Bisping
    9) Belfort/Jacare
    10) Shogun/Rashad
