    What do you do with the winner? It seems very clear that the ufc wants the winner of Sandhagen and Dillashaw in the title fight after Yan/Aljo.

    Yan vs. Aljo is targeted for November, then the next title fight won't happen until like March.

    Do you have the winner of Font and Garbrandt fight someone like Aldo or Munoz or what? Personally I'd like to see the winner of Sandhagen vs. Dillashaw fight the winner of Font vs. Garbrandt, but I don't see that happening.

    I hate that Dillashaw is already in a title eliminator. I will be rooting for Sandhagen so hard that fight

    I think Cody took the fight to stay active. He could go to 125 and fight for the title. Font will have to fight once more if he wins. TJ x Sandhagen will be for the nr1 contender.

    Same. I thought Font vs. Sandhagen was the right fight to make, but i think the ufc wanted to let Dillashaw's and garbrandt's star power either grow or rub off on these other two guys.

    According to Sandhagen and TJ himself Cory used to give him the biznis in sparring, so fingers crossed!

    If Font wins he should maybe rematch Munhoz, Pedro destroyed him in the first fight.

    This fight should be for #1 contender. BW is freakin stacked though. I would put the winner in an Interim with Yan if that's possible.

    The winner will be in a bit of a limbo. Cody is no stranger to long layoffs so he'll probably wait things out if he wins. Font too probably because he's never been in a situation he will find himself in if he beats Garbrandt. Can't imagine he'll want to risk his position to be active.

    I suspect the winner of Font/Garbrandt will wait to see how Sandhagen/TJ and Sterling/Yan 2 fights goes. Maybe fight the loser of Sterling/Yan 2?

    Yeah he basically took 2 years off to get surgeries done and now comes back to this

    Not much of a punishment

    Yeah, the loser of yan vs aljo might make sense. The division is a bit of a mess right now. I'm looking forward to it being sorted out

    Ya for the sake of activity if Sandhagen wins he should probably fight the winner of Font vs Garbrandt. Maybe even on the same card as the title fight. Me personally id like to see Sandhagen fight the winner without even fighting TJ. I feel bad for Cory. He could have to potentially beat TJ then CG or Font, even though he has already earned it. Tj vs Aldo was the fight to make.

    Yan doesn't really strike me as the guy who's going to sit around and wait. I think he's going to fight somebody. I could be wrong.

    Cody's best chance is at 125.
    He was 9,5 pounds lighter than Dillashaw in their fight ffs

    That's a tough fight for Cody. If he wins they should just give him another title shot. After all, there really isn't anyone more exciting than him at that weight class and nobody clean has ever beat him.

    Hopefully they give Petr someone worthy this time.
    That is if he seeks a fight before the rematch.

    He's the lineal champ and no one beat him for the belt. Makes no sense to not have him fight for the belt.
