    Who do you think Costas will fight next? People are talking about Cung Le and though on papers it sounds good (striker vs striker) i m not so crazy about the match up. Cung still has a punchers chance like with Franklin but Costa has better stand up that Rich and especially defence wsith his footwork and head movement. I also think he has a clear advantage on power/strength.

    I believe Stann (if he didnt fight Wandy) or Lombard make for more interesting fights.

    Okami would be a good wrestling test but it doesnt sound exciting.

    Rockhold is a possibility.

    Listen, Tim, we get it, you lost after a headbutt and an eyepoke.

    Philippou would still have murdered you.

    Weidman or Rockhold. I don't think either of these guys should be fighting each other, so this makes sense.

    i dont think they will match him with someone who has lost. Okami would be a good test but i still prefer Lombard.

    He's not going to fight Weidman, they both train at Serra-Luongo.

    Weidman. He stepped in for him on short notice. Only fitting.
