    Some pretty interesting matchups coming up that could breath some new life into the top 5-10. Best case scenarios for the next couple of months:

    -Krylov finishes Blachowicz
    -Santos KOs Manuwa
    -Reyes beats OSP
    -Smith beats Volkan(Volkan W ok too)
    -Anderson/Latifi = win/win
    -Rakic finishes Clark
    -Cirkunov finishes Cummins
    -Roundtree/Walker = win/win
    -Yandiev finishes Johnson
    -Alvey KOs Nog

    + Cutelaba & Tyson Pedro are still young & talented. Maybe they fight next?

    I think Rakic & Cutelaba are the best of the prospects but Reyes, Krylov, Santos, & the winners of Volkan/Smith & Latifi/Anderson have the best chances to make immediate runs at whoever is champ in 2019 after DC. Gus? Jones??

    I think 205 will have a solid resurgence in the next 6-8 months.

    Did you make these fights, or are they booked?
    Cirkunov vs Cummins is the only matchup left at 205 I'm interested in.
    I was a 205 or die fan back for as long as I can remember the weight class existing.
    Now it's 45 - 70 with all the action.

    Pretty liberal use of the word "interesting."

    Lil Nog will be the resurgence LHW needs.

    WHAT? Cirkunov vs Cummins is interesting but Smith/Volkan & Santos/Manuwa arent? Krylov? Is that you Pat Cummins?

    Womens 125 looks stacked compared to that shishow.

    Put 205 out of its misery finally and send them all to HW.

    What about Justin Ledet?

    I know he didn’t look too hot in his last fight, but that was his first career loss and he’s finally fighting and staying at his normal weight class. Bright future for that dude as well.
