    Deiveson Figueiredo (Moreno)
    Francis Ngannou (Lewis)

    Sterling will lose to Yan like he did in the first fight before the DQ.

    N'Gannou has the potential to lose to everyone in the top 5.

    Vettori, not Whittaker, would be a tough matchup for Adesanya. He'll grind him out the way Jan did.

    Most likely to lose is obviously Sterling. Ill make a list:

    Sterling
    Figuierdo
    Volk
    Blachowicz
    Adesanya
    Ngannou
    Usman

    The first two i think are pretty likely to lose. The rest likely retain.
