    The event as a whole was eh. I don't mind that the fights went to decisions but they just weren't that entertaining.

    Jon Jones vs. winner of Gustafsson/Johnson
    Daniel Cormier vs. loser of Gustafsson/Johnson
    Donald Cerrone vs. Khabib Nurmagemedov for #1 contendership
    Myles Jury vs. Josh Thomson
    Brad Tavares vs. Costas Philippou or possibly a short notice fight with Uriah Hall
    Nate Marquardt vs. Rich Franklin or Cung Le (depending on how the lawsuit stuff play out probably)
    Kyoji Horiguchi vs. John Moraga or Jussier Formiga
    Louis Gaudinot vs. Josh Sampo
    Hector Lombard vs. Rory MacDonald for #1 contendership
    Josh Burkman vs. Dong Hyun Kim or Gunnar Nelson

    Paul Felder vs. Beneil Dariush
    Cody Garbrandt vs. Ian Entwistle
    Shawn Jordan vs. Ruslan Magomedov
    Evan Dunham vs. Yancy Medeiros
    Omari Akhmedov vs. Dhiego Lima

    I know he's coming off a loss but I would rather see Lombard vs Matt Brown.

    These are particularly good matches.

    I only disagree with Hector/Rory. Rory's earned it and instead the UFC made one of the most bizarrely unwarranted rematches in history.

    Not bad. I'd rather see Cormier fight the winner of Rashad vs. Glover though (Hate seeing talented guys drop 2 in a row). Cerrone vs Nurmagomedov will be godly. Khabib can take him down all he wants, in my opinion Cerrone is even more dangerous on the ground than on the feet.

    I'll pass on the Gus jones fight. Guff gassed out last fight half of 3, all of 4 and 5. Throw in the fact that Jbj was fighting badly dehydrated with a flu, a fully healthy Jbj will just destroy Gus. Jbj will be charged with animal cruelty if the fight isn't stopped by the 3rd round. It will be slippery like the ice bucket incident but will blood and flesh.

    pass

    Corimer shouldn't get a top contender yet imo, he already got a title shot off an pretty easy streak (hendo, cummings, nelson and mir) Needs to fight a top 10 guy. before a top 5.

    He should fight the Ryan bader phil/Phil Davis Loser.

    And I'm sorry but marquart has gotta go.
