    Carla Esparza vs. Tatiana Suarez
    Aljamain Sterling vs. Cody Stamann
    Jimmie Rivera vs. John Dodson
    Charles Byrd vs. Darren Stewart
    Diego Sanchez vs. Craig White
    Jim Miller vs. Alex White
    Irene Aldana vs. Lucie Pudilova
    Jarred Brooks vs. Roberto Sanchez
    Geoff Neal vs. Frank Camacho

    For me, the obvious pick is Rivera/Dodson. Should have been on the main card from the get go. But I know the UFC is reluctant to pull fs1 fights and they usually draw from fight pass so Sanchez/White or Miller/White would be the best options there.

    Man, I can't believe how garbage this card is.

    But to answer the question, Rivera vs Dodson.

    Esparza vs Suarez or Dodson vs Rivera. They're the highest ranked fights. Or just get Valentina to dance in the cage for a few minutes.

    Esparza/Suarez for sure.

    On a lesser card that gem of a fight would be the main event.

    Can they just pull Suarez or Esparza into an interim fight with Shevchenko? Suarez especially, is not a small 115lb fighter.

    Rivera-Dodson. They buried that fight on early FS1 prelims for no reason.

    Shevchenko vs Usman? Throw a wig on kamaru and tell him not go over 30% and we got a fight.

    either of the top bw fights would be appropriate...but I got a bad feeling Esparza is gonna find her way back on the main card.

    not sure why everyone is sleeping on Cody Stamann. 17-1, 3-0 UFC, 10-fight win streak, beat the uber hyped prospect Tom Duquesnoy.
