    I think that could be an interesting matchup. Varner said he wanted to return in April against guys like Dos Anjos, Pearson, Wiman and Grant. But I think a fight against Miller would be a good test as well.

    naw, "Jamie Varner said Rafael Dos Anjos, Ross Pearson, Matt Wiman and T.J. Grant are among the fighters he's looking at for his next octagon appearance."

    i think he wants a fight before moving up to someone of miller's level

    Think Miller is a little a head of Varner, only just, but i'd like Miller-Maynard rematch

    Miller is on the way up...He should be matched against Maynard or somewhere close to the top.

    Varner, lost to Lauzon and SD over Melvin. Too soon for this match up.

    Too much of a step down for Miller. Lauzon just beat Varner, while jim miller handily beat Lauzon. (It's MMA math but it makes sense in this case)
    Though I think their styles would make for an even match up in the beginning. But I would have Miller by being able to outlast Varner and take rounds 2 and 3 for sure.

    Miller needs a bigger fight then Varner

    Maynard rematch makes sense for him

    I would be super down for this fight. Varner never gets an easy fight in so this makes sense.

    Miller has recently lost to the champ, so why not? Let him put some wins together. No point making him face a top 5 guy when he won't get a title shot out of it.

    it would be a little strange since varner just got finished by lauzon and then lauzon got his ass kicked by milller

    I'd prefer Miller-Maynard.

    Varner needs another solid win to warrant a fight will Miller.

    MMA math ?

    I think Varner and Joe are evenly matched.

    they all should be aspiring to be on RDA's level... :icon_twis

    That's who miller should fight next, rda.

    Varner is a tough fight for anyone at lw, and he's in fun fights, win or lose, so put him in against any top 15er and I'm happy.

    Varner / tibau or varner / khabib -tavares winner

    Say what you will but Joe beats Varner 9/10. Not MMA math, it's only my opinion Jim Miller is better of the three.

    ya it doesnt make sense Miller just dominated the guy who Varner just lost too.

    Miller/Maynard 2 makes the most sense

    as for Varner i liked all his suggestion, Dos Anjos or Josh Thomson is who he should fight.

    I think it is the other way around Varner's wrestling and stand up are too good for Joe Lauzon if Varner has a full training camp, Varner was winning the fight till he got tired and submitted.
