    Nothing quite like prospect MMA

    James Krause at LW seems like a good match up
    Nik Lentz if you want a sink or swim type fight

    But I say Rashid Magomedov on the main card of an upcoming fight night, could be fireworks or Leandro Santos

    Those are both huge step ups
    Though I think he could style on Dariush, not sure about Chiesa, too much too soon imho

    I want to see a rematch with Ferguson if Khabib fight doesn't happen. Lando has been making excuses for why he lost the first contest. Now he gets a chance to redeem himself. Tony get to show why he is the number 1 contender by eliminate all questions. The first contest was amazing.

    hey man, you almost finish the #1 contender, then smoke a vet like Makedsi, i think it's time for a test.

    Anthony Pettis

    Lando and Pettis are both great with their flash kicks, should be a great fight for sure!

    Why not? Lando has been making excuses for why he lost the first contest. Tony can eliminate all questions and establish him as the TRUE #1 contender, and the first contest between those 2 was amazing. One of the best fights this year.

    damn, didn't know Dariush was about to fight Barboza.

    I'd say throw him in the fire with Chiesa, or give him Will Brooks.

    Better yet, give him Kevin Lee. I'd love to see Kevin Lee take a heel to the face.

    I agree with Khabilov, Dariush is too high up at the moment. I'd like to see Lando get a slower track to the elite tier, he's got hella skills but needs to see some more cage time, I also worry he's too small for LW.

    Something like

    Khabilov -> Trinaldo/Dunham/Poirier (whoever is coming off a win at the time -> Dariush/Melendez -> top 5 fight

    He almost beat a contender, give him Alvarez. I can see Lando laying Eddie out.

    Might be a bit too much for now. I hope they build up Vannata slowly. He's super flashy and has a good recovery, but he still needs to work on his defense a lot.

    I know it doesn't make sense rankings-wise but I'd love to see him fight Edson Barboza.

    It's a good fight but doesn't leave anything positive to Ferguson. The same for Lando. Vannata should fight another kind of fighters. He's relatively new in UFC
