    RDA wasn't the champ long enough to get one of those coveted immediate rematches, that and kinda got overwhelmed in a Flurry. So that leaves either Khabib or Ferguson lined up for the next shot. I think Ferguson has the better claim with his more recent streak and Khabib has become a question mark to me with his injury luck. I think Barboza vs RDA would be a hell of a striking Match.

    Chiesa doesn't deserve that high ranked opponent just yet and he would get slaughtered at this point

    7-2 in UFC with tons of finishes + TUF record. I don't see how he doesn't deserve to fight RDA, who lost in the first round, not in a close fight

    agreed. chiesa is a very over looked and underrated stud in the light weight division.

    just wish he could get a rematch with lauzon and have a chance to erase that loss via cut. that fight was fireworks from start to when the doctor ended it.

    Well, sure give him a shot. He'll get murdered unless he has seriously improved his stand up

    He has very good submissions but his stand up is so bad that he won't be able to stand w/ the top dogs in a long time and he can't rely on his ground game against top 5 opponents

    watch his fights from tuf to now, and i am sure you will seen a huge improvement in his stand up and overall game. he literally does improve with leaps and bounds every fight.

    I picked him to defeat Dariush via Submission but i wasn't impressed at his overall skills after that fight taking in notice that he is a top 10 fighter, supposedly in the most high level MMA organization and LIGHTWEIGHT division which is full of savages

    Fair enough. I don't remember that fight too well. Will probably watch it shortly after posting this. But I think he will be able to hang with the top guys at 155 and can pose a threat to anyone he faces standing, on the ground and in the clinch. Time will tell.
