    1 inch height difference, similar reach, recent KO wins, why not?

    Nelson is a class above Barry, deserves a top 5er imo

    Nah. Roy should get a step up like Cormier. I think Barry vs Miocic makes more sense.

    I'd be down. If Pat could avoid the takedowns, it would be an awesome fight

    My bad. Was out of town visiting my girlfriend all weekend, her laptop needs reformatted badly and didn't get on the forums at all, I didn't really check the threads on my phone last night because it's a bit of a pain.

    I'd be ok with this. I just liked the size/reach matchup and KO power of the guys. Roy vs. Cormier would be a great 1st UFC test for him, they also have size/reach/wrestling comparability. I think Barry vs. Miocic is a dangerous matchup for both guys, I'd take these or Roy vs. Pat, as long as it's something good and makes sense to the fans vs. makes sense to Dana White haha. Love the guy, but he's kind of dictated certain matchups that make no sense, I don't need to go into detail here haha.

    Nah not right now.

    Rather see... Nelson vs. Rothwell/Gonzaga Winner & Barry vs. Duffee/De Fries Winner.
