    Both tier 2 heavyweights
    Would be a nice fight on a FN or TUF card.

    Who would you like to see Soa fight next ?

    That's way too big of a jump in competition for Soa. Rothwell or Gonzaga would make more sense imo.

    Bigfoot is not a tier 2 heavyweight. He's one of the best.

    Soa is far from fighting someone like that.

    That is the fight to make. I can see Bigfoot taking it but is a markeatable fight.

    Plus it can work for putting BF back on the winning column. He has been fighting top fighters for a while. He deserves a gimme fight and an easy paycheck.

    Soa Palelei is incredibly strong, people seems to ignore that...
    Big Foot vs Soa, why not

    Soa is on a resurgence and will be top 10 when he wins his next 2 fights.

    Soa should get the Meathead/Struve winner.

    I think he's more in line to fight a DERRICK LEWIS or JARED ROSHOLT

    Soa vs. Bigfoot on the next Australian card would be cool since the Australian mainstream are somewhat aware of Bigfoot now.

    Welcome to dubs.......

    He needs a step up, I agree but there is a much better way to make the same point.

    Jds and Cain would be tier 1. the rest of the guys in the top 5 aren't very close so they could be considered tier 2. I see the logic.
