    Eduardo, Sterling, or Caraway. Also, I can't believe Iuri is still ranked above Frankie Saenz.

    Hell yeah that would be fun. Cub would give him some problems too. I feel like Faber runs right through Caraway or Eduardo just like he did Bruce Leeroy and Alcantra, give him a better matchup IMO.

    yea defintely, i agree - those fights could be fine but i get the sense (i dont know him) that he doesnt really want to cut weight and hes not going to be champ either likely, so fun fights for a bit makes sense - prelim main event types

    Caraway or Sterling.

    I want to see Caraway choked again and I want to see Sterling propelled into top 5 comp.

    BW - Sterling (he was asking for fights), Caraway, Almeida, maybe even Saenz?

    FW - Max Holloway, Stephens, Guida

    I think he stays at Bantam. He went up to fight Frankie but Frankie is not a big featherweight. Faber has a much better chance of getting title shot/top competition at bantam. The top of the featherweight division is on hold with Aldo/Connor and mendes/Frankie waiting in the wings. It would be a long time before he get his next big opportunity - not worth it for him this late in his career.

    I think he should get Sterling - he deserves it more than Caraway. Sterling's last win was to Mizugaki who was a ranked oppoenent. Caraway lost to mizugaki a few years back. Caraways last win was to wineland (who has lost 3 of 4, getting knocked the f out by Eduardo)

    Pretty sure Fiber said he wanted to stay at 45. Jeremy Stephens gives us the best striker vs grappler matchup we'll see in the division for a long time.

    I guess Oliveira would make sense too, as both are coming off uneventful losses.

    LOLOL Fiber. Thank you autocorrect. That is what I meant.
