    Grant next title shot or another fight.

    I like the match up though.

    I was thinking Grant vs. Melendez. What's crazy is they could have pushed Pettis-Grant back a month, and it would have worked, but the UFC really wants Pettis on that card for FOX, and they are giving Thompson a very undeserved title shot, what a joke.

    Khabib is not on their level. He is above it.

    How would it have worked if he was having headaches and sensitivity to sound and light? He wasn't able to train and didn't even have a tentative return date to get back to a training camp.

    Khabib vs Melendez makes a lot of sense, depending on how Grant is turning around lately I could see him in a title eliminator with Khabib as well.

    Nurmagomedov is a future champion at lightweight. And this is coming from an Anthony Pettis fanboy.

    He is a nightmare matchup for pettis it would a wrestling clinic. Melendez and Bendo are actually tougher match ups for khabib.
