    After the news that TJ is not able to face Pettis for LW champ, he said if he has to fight before titleshot he will do it. I think RDA is on of the best options for him at the moment. What do u guys think? Do u prefer winner of Healy vs Nurmagomedov? Or a mini GP between those 4 guys??

    I like winner of Healy/Nurmagomedov vs. RDA.

    If that fight happens, and TJ still can't fight, he looooses his shot.

    Bendo-Rafael dos Anjos: The only two top 10s without fights besides the injured Grant. RDA has won 5 in a row and needs a good name next. Bendo will have to bide his time and take fights like this until Pettis loses the title.

    LOL! Cerrone is not elite? He's a solid fighter and was top 10 at the time.

    I'd watch Dos Anjos vs Grant. That'd be a good #1 contender fight. Grant would probably destroy him though. He's much bigger, a stronger wrestler and a harder hitter.

    Is he much bigger? RDA is pretty big and strong himself.

    Dos Anjos surprised me against Cerrone.

    So I think he and Grant would make an awesome fight.

    If grant is out for a very prolonged amount of time , I wonder if he gets passed up , I would hate for that to happen so hopefully he recovers from the symptoms.

    Tj & Rafael are both on a 5 fight winning streak that include wins over Bocek & Dunham. They both have 1 top 10 win. This fight makes sense.

    Well, if they fought each other, then the winner would have two top 10 wins.

    Grant would KO Dos Anjos in my opinion,but would loose the title shot.

    any combination between Grant-Healy-Nurmagomedov-Dos Anjos makes sense and I'd tune in

    Well Grant shouldn't get a title shot now, when he returns he should fight someone else who is at the top for #1 contender.

    Not his fault but you cant mess up the division and keep certain fighters on hold, after Melendez wins they can do Grant vs Melendez

    What are you talking about? He already lost the title shot to Thompson. If he beats Anjos it will just boost his momentum. Put the fight on the Fox card to more introduce Grant & Dos Anjos. My humble opinion.
