    I tried to keep the matchups already booked. So Wonderboy/Burns is still on and so is Diaz/Edwards

    If Wonderboy beats burns he deserves the next shot over Diaz/Edwards.
    Make Covington fight the winner of Diaz/Edwards for next shot or the shot after Usman vs Wonderboy if that scenario plays out, Colby should have taken the Edwards fight over Diaz.
    Luque should fight Masvidal or Chiesa.

    Edit: Edwards is ranked one higher than Wonderboy but does he really deserve the shot after so much inactivity and a win over Diaz? nah no way, Wonderboy is on a more active win streak and a Burns win would be way more impressive than a Diaz win.

    There's no fixing the current bullshit. Nonsensical title shots, no top fighters defending their top position. Old top but currently losing guys being overrated cuz no new young guys are getting fights to raise their stocks.
    From here?

    If Wonderboy beats Burns, he gets the shot against Usman.

    As for Leon? Well, he accepted Diaz. His streak should pull a MUCH bigger name, but he couldn't get one, and settled on Nate. So when he beats Nate, it'll mean shit, and him vs Colby should earn next shot.

    Burns vs Chiesa
    Masvidal vs Lawler
    Magny vs Luque
    Belal is fighting Maia
    Leech vs Brady
    Neal vs Khamzat

    If Wonderboy loses to Burns, then Leon has to get the shot after he beats Diaz.

    Hard to book a number 1 shot after that. It still feels too soon of a turnaround for Colby and Burns, but after Colby beats Woodley and Burns beats Wonderboy, then a win over each other should keep one arguably is punching distance. So Burns vs Colby

    Wonderboy vs Chiesa
    Magny vs Luque
    Belal is fighting Maia
    Leech vs Brady
    Neal vs Khamzat

    Usman Vs Wonderboy

    Colby and Edwards don’t deserve shit. Neither have an impressive win in recent memory.
