    There's a lot of different directions the UFC could go, what would you like to see happen with the division? I'm thinking:

    Dillashaw vs. Assuncao II for the belt
    Cruz vs. the Faber/Caceres winner
    Barao vs. Mizugaki
    Alcantara/Lee winner vs. Johnny Eduardo
    Mike Easton vs. Wilson Reis
    McDonald- tune-up fight
    Wineland- out indefinitely

    Easton is booked right now against Yves Jabouin at UFC 174.

    Faber vs TJ for the Belt. That fight would be huge.

    Where does Perez vs. Caraway fit into this?

    Tj Assuncao for the belt.
    Baro Miz for title shot at winner.



    Don't bother mentioning Cruz, its sad but you can pretty much forget about him until we hear him saying he is back. Last I heard he wasn't even training 100%.

    I don't see it happening.

    And Faber hasn't won a fight since he lost his 2nd title shot at BW.

    I didn't include them because if Perez wins he'll probably sit out until the Mexico card, whereas Caraway might jump right back into the mix.

    Ah, alright. Also, I assume it's Easton/Jabouin winner vs. Reis?

    I didn't realize Easton was booked, but yeah, that works. I suspect Easton will win anyways. I didn't really put a ton of thought into these matchups though, I was mainly interested in what other people wanted to see happen. The only fight I feel strongly about is Dillashaw/Assuncao.

    My thinking with Cruz was that being the former champ he'd only fight once before a title shot, so give him a big, but winnable fight. And if he comes back a shell of himself at least we got the trilogy(assuming Urijah wins) and he got another big payday.
