    I was most impressed with Felder tonight. Anyone that can take out Castillo, especially like that, has me intrigued.

    I would actually like to see him go for someone like Pearson or Green.

    Thoughts?

    Anthony Pettis

    Maybe somebody like Iaquinta/Lauzon winner or Gleison Tibau/Parker winner or Masvidal

    he looked really good, amazing technique.
    best performance on the whole card.
    Castillo is a vet, beat him and made it look easy.

    Pearson or Green would be good.

    I was thinking Tibau as well, so maybe Parke/Tibau winner would be good as well.

    Mind you, I was one of the highest on Felder coming into the Castillo fight, but way too many people get over-exuberant when it comes to subsequent matches for a fighter who impressed. In a way, Castillo was too big of a step up, but it was on paper a favorable stylistic match-up going by his octagon debut against Saggo. He's faced 2 wrestlers. How about facing a similar level fighter as the one he just clubbed, only with a very different style? It'll only be his 3rd fight in the octagon, and 9th fight in his career. No need to push him too hard. Striker/jj guys like Krause or Medeiros would suffice. Lauzon/Iaquinta winner or something like that is too high in the division.
