    My matches to make after Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine in the UFC.

    Tarec Saffiedine vs. Martin Kampmann (Muay Thai x Good TDD)
    Nate Marquardt vs. Erick Silva. (Would be a war.)
    Daniel Cormier vs. Frank Mir. (Claimed they were fighting)
    Josh Barnett vs. Roy Nelson. (Interested to see if Nelson could avoid getting subbed)
    Gegard Mousasi vs. Shogun Rua. (Stand Up War!)
    Jacare Souza vs. Chris Weidman. (One of my fave fights to make)
    Ryan Couture vs. KJ Noons II. (Need a rematch, only because I really thought Noons won.)
    Tim Kennedy vs. Costa Philippou. (This would turn into an all out war.)
    Pat Healy vs. Jim Miller. (Good first test in the UFC to see if he's top 10 material or not.)
    Roger Gracie vs. Derek Brunson. (Brunson uses his sloppy telegraphed takedowns on Gracie, Gracie subs him & possibly cuts Brunson from the UFC)


    What's your guys opinion?

    I like it. I would actually love to see Pat Healy fight Mark Bocek. Him taking on Jim Miller would be great though. Can't wait to see all these guys in the Octagon.

    I really doubt Brunson would get cut from the UFC after going 1-1 with the 1 win being over Leben who is a solid MW fighter.

    In his defense I don't think Alves is higher than Pyle anymore. Alves is 2-4 in his last six and the two wins aren't anything to write home about (they have a combined 4-5 record in the UFC).

    Pyle is on a three fight streak, with all of those being first round KOs.

    He's still a ways behind Kos though.

    I like that actually. Tarec looked good, but there are a lot of good WW's out there and shouldn't be jumped up too far and Pyle has been doing good lately anyway.

    Gus is like 0-2 fights away from a title shot and Glover is fighting Rampage.

    I like the matchups but as good as Saffiedine looked tonight, I’d like to see him fight Rory.

    I think he is about 5'10''-11'' he is a average WW Marquardt was much bigger which is no surprise
