    After a dominant win against Uriah Hall last Saturday at UFC Vegas 33, who's next for him?

    Luke Rockhold for me. Luke said no one in the top 10 wanted to fight him and Sean on the other hand just loves to fight against anyone, and doesn't care whoever it may be.

    As Sean takes Uriah's spot in there at #8 (mentioned it the post fight), got offered and accepted it, it would be a great and fun fight!

    Vettori, so he can end this hype job and mess up the MW division even more

    Luke would be fun but beating Marvin would do more for him at this point

    Hermansson makes sense. Good test to see where Seans grappling is at. Usman layed on him pretty hard but Usmans wrestling is next level

    I think Sean will enter the top 10 now at #8 but Costa being at #2, isn't he a bit too high for him? And I think Costa's pushing for the Vettori fight. But yep, that's a great fight.

    Edmen needs a step down in competition, was a bad call that they had him fight Hermansson after losing to Brunson.

    My #1 pick for Strickland would be Hermansson, then Rockhold, then alternatively the loser of Till / Brunson.

    Yep I agree with Till/Brunson loser, that's a nice choice and just added it to the poll.

    I feel like him and Guastelum would put on a banger.

    out of all the choices, Loser of Cannonier/Gastelum makes most sense.
    But Paulo costa could be a good fight to setup for for a title shot IMO.

    Based on the ranks, I think Costa should fight the winner of Till vs Brunson, or Vettori. He only lost just 1 fight and it's against the champ and he's still up there at #2.

    Hmmm true... though Canonier is #3 while Till & Brunson are #5 and #7....
    IMO if Canonier wins, perhaps makes more sense that he fights Costa (and if Gastelum wins, he'd fight Strickland)?

    Yes, Cannonier and Costa were supposed to fight in the first place but Costa pulled out coz of his hair transplant, lol. But I'm hearing Costa is pushing to fight Vettori and both parties want it. We'll see

    Strickland vs Vetori for battle of the biggest meatheads

    more realistic Sean vs Jack

    I'd lean towards Hermansson -- I want to see how much Strickland's ground game and defensive wrestling has improved since Usman. I think it's evident that he is much better, but I'd just like to see this fight -- should be a good style match up.

    Ideally it should be the loser of Till/Brunson or Cannonier/Gastelum...

    But I voted for Rockhold because it would be entertaining to see Luke be the first death in the UFC.
