    After he beats Dodson the only contender he has left is Henry Cejudo and John Lineker if he is allowed to move back down I'm not even sure either of them win there next fights. How long before they put him in there with TJ for a Super fight. It is widely recognized that TJ is a smaller 135 and too top that off the only contenders at 135 right now are Cruz, Raphael, and Almeida.

    I would have no moral obligation against MM v Ronda

    Well, I do want to see the two fights you mentioned, especially the Cejudo fight. After that I'd be okay with him moving up unless some really good prospect emerges.

    I also want to see MM vs Rousey in my fantasy world. My brother and I have talked about would the 10lb weight advantage for Rousey equalize their strength somewhat, or would it take more of a handicap than that?

    She still would have to go through hell just to make it out the first round.

    Makovsky will rise, don't forget he has a very close fight against Dodson.

    ...or he'll end up like the Jessica Eye of FLW, always so close to the title picture but never quite there.

    Add Caraway at BW, he did just beat a former top 5 guy.

    MM would beat Ronda most times but it would still be a more interesting matchup than Cariaso lol.

    NOW
    - John Dodson rematch needs to happen

    THEN
    - Henry Cejudo
    - Jussier Formiga

    AND THEN HOPEFULLY ONE OF THE FOLLOWING
    - RAY BORG
    - IAN MCCALL TRILOGY (I most wan't this fight to happen)
    - LOUIS SMOLKA

    That should take us to mid-2017 where new challengers will be ready.

    Plus... Superfights at Batamweight.

    Smolka lost to Carriaso
    Borg lost to Ortiz
    McCall hopefully but idk if I see it happening at this point.

    Dana can defend Minnie Mouse all he wants, but everyone realizes Dodson would be a better champ. Watch Zuffa stall to give Minnie Mouse a rematch if he loses.

    After the last event there was an advert proclaiming the next PPV will be Mighty Mouse vs The Magician.
    The guy I was watching with, a boxing fan who often watches with me but is not even close to being converted, looked over at me and said 'you're so fucking gay'.
    And I couldn't disagree, what a fucking shit advert for a fight.

    Is Mighty Mouse vs The Magician the single shittest clash of nicknames in the UFC's history? It couldn't be much more embarrassing

    Honestly, I don't think strength would be the primary factor. I think MM would just be plain too fast.

    Regarding Smolka and Borg
    - Both of their lone losses were via close split decision.
    - Both have rebounded by winning two straight.

    Another possibility is PADDY HOLOHAN. He's on a 2 fight win streak, meaning there's a opportunity to strike big in the upcoming Dublin show.

    For example you can do Paddy Holohan vs. Louis Smolka on the main card, with the winner getting a title eliminator versus Borg/Formiga/McCall.

    Jesus Christ.

    Do you realize you're talking about the best Flyweight fighter ever?

    Talking about men vs women is already ridiculous enough. Do you really have to bring Demetrious Johnson in the conversation?

    Ok... I'll play your game. 10 pounds you say? Do you realize Demetrious Johnson beat everybody but Cruz (one of the best, i would say the best Bantamweight ever) at Bantamweight? Do you realize he beat Joseph Benavidez twice (first man to ever knock him out), another man who beat everybody but Cruz at Bantamweight?

    Please, just stop.

    Back on topic. I'm sorry if White does not agree, but Johnson is too much for the Flyweight division. And he is still improving. A lot!

    Another two or three wins and he should take some fight at 135, without losing his 125 belt! Because that would be ridiculous.

    Let's all remember he also knocked the current BW champion out...

    It was MM's next challenger, John Dodson, who TKO'd the current BW champion.

    My point is that all of those guys have losses against less then seller competition. Not only will they not be marketable competitors but that really don't have a shot against mighty mouse. And I don't think any of those three make it pass the upper end of 125 I. E Formiga, Mackovsky, Reis, Joe B, McCall

    Too bad Dodson isn't the better fighter. Dodson only has a puncher's chance to win while MM can win many different ways.

    Preposterous scenario. Demetrius is stronger and faster and has a wider skillset. I think the only reason someone would suggest this is an eagerness to see Rousey lose, not interest in a competitive fight.

    I know. I'm not even sure Ronda can beat the best 115 fighter in MMA.
