    if you want to take it slow - RDA.

    Even though RDA vs Khabib makes a lot of sense on paper I feel it's one of those matches that just wouldn't be particularly eventful.

    I'd love to see Henderson end his hype, and I'm not even a Henderson fan.

    RDA all day!

    Huge steps down at this point.

    He's fighting Maynard and would be Khabib just throwing Nate around but still probably be really fun on the feet and on the ground.

    Bendo, RDA, or Sanchez/Melendez winner.

    Diaz vs Maynard winner makes a lot of sense. People might feel it's a step back but both Diaz and Maynard are more well known then anyone currently on his resume and the state of the LW division is such that matching a top 5 guy up with someone in as low as in the top 20 isn't as weird as it might seem.

    He's on a 21-fight winning streak, 5-0 in the UFC including 1 top 10 win.

    Khabib vs TJ or Dos Anjos for a title shot sounds about right.

    Yes Khabib vs. Ben Henderson because KAbib will beat him and then challenge Pettis.

    Good fight, I agree. Actually there are several fights that could move him to the threshold of a Title Fight.
    I am very happy that the weight was a non issue in this fight. I believe that's what the UFC wanted to be certain of following his problems the last fight.

    I think he'll fight the loser of Melendez/Sanchez

    Any combination of Khabib vs Maynard vs Thomson probably would not occur unless for a Title. They are Training Partners at AKA.

    The only "loser" of a fight that Khabib may face is Ben Henderson, who lost a Title Fight. He could fight the winner of Melendez/Sanchez, however.
