    Munoz vs Boetsch
    Two guys coming off a loss who still want to make noise for a title run

    Belcher vs Lawlor

    Couldn't really think of an opponent for Belcher... Stann if he loses to Wand, perhaps.

    Franklin vs Leben

    Two old-timers, should be an exciting bout. Franklin would likely be KO'd into retirement, though.

    Costa-Philippou vs Nedkov

    Up-and-comers who need wins to move up in the divisions.

    Weidman vs winner of Okami/Lombard

    All on the upper part of the top 10, a title eliminator - problem is, Okami is kinda on Fitch territory so he won't be fighting for the title as long as Anderson has it - then again, I doubt he can beat Lombard AND Weidman.






    If Bisping wins against Belfort:
    Anderson vs Bisping
    Nobody really wants to see this except Bisping haters and it would be a mauling, but both Anderson and Bisping have expressed interest in this fight. Plus they could market a whole card in the UK with this one

    If Belfort wins against Bisping:
    Le vs Belfort
    Crazy standup fight. Belfort's speed might be too much for Le though.


    Name your favorite matchups!

    Yeah because Leben has looked stellar getting his face beat in by Munoz and losing to a no-namer making his debut. Franklin would demolish Leben.

    completely forgot about Rockhold! I'd give him someone a little lower into the rankings than Weidman though

    Precisely. Fucking MMA fans are so stupid. A guy gets knocked out once and suddenly everybody would put him to sleep. Franklin is a legend and got caught by the perfect shot. He's a smart fighter unlike an extremely mediocre Leben. Please, be realistic.

    There are a lot of factors, but I'm thinking

    Silva vs Weidman. Bisping/Vitor winner gets the next shot. Costa vs Rockhold with the winner potentially getting a shot, Cung Le vs Derek Brunson, Belcher vs Munoz, Boetsch vs Franklin, Jacare vs Shields, Palhares vs Ed Herman, Vemola vs Leben. If Lombard beats Okami, give him Le/Brunson or Jacare/Shields, winner gets a title shot. Bisping/Vitor loser against Okami/Lombard loser.

    Good match ups but I would like to see:

    Costa vs Jacare
    Weidman vs Rockhold
    Le vs Kennedy
    Larkin vs Gracie
    Winner of Lombard/Okami vs Winner Costa/Jacare
    Belfort vs Stann/Wanderlei winner

    I usually hate guys writing 'stopped reading at'

    However I did stop reading at 'Leben knocking Franklin into retirement'

    That's ludicrous. Ace would destroy him.

    Don't like Larkin vs. Gracie, why put SF against each other in their debuts

    I like all the match-ups; Phillipou deserves a bigger name perhaps than Nedkov
