    Or Co-Headlining?

    Stephen Thompson recently got his first main event slot on the TUF Finale and this
    happened.

    Dustin Poirier vs Joseph Duffy also, both fighters haven't headlined before, but now they are. Gunnar Nelson vs Rick Story headlined for the first time.. etc etc you get it.

    So, which fighter currently in the top 30-10 in any division would you personally like to see headline a card, in any location (the ufc has previously been)...

    Or at the least, who you would like to see get a main card opener/slot?

    I want to see Tumenov get a main card slot next (after he starches Jouban), Doo Ho Choi maybe a main card opener in Seoul and Krylov somewhere in Europe if he beats De Lima. I would like to see Dong Hyun Kim co headline the event in Seoul (which will most likely happen out of all that I have listed). I also want to see Rashid Magomedov headline/co-headline an event after he finishes Burns.

    EDIT: Who do you want to see headline, THAT HASN'T ALREADY...

    EDIT #2: Dustin has already headlined vs TKZ, I forgot

    Amirkhani headlining UFC's first ever Finland card would be sweet.

    Maybe have him gets some more wins, he's not big enough, yet. The UFC would need more Finnish fighters, too. They only have him and Packalen.

    Sterling but a fight with Caraway I dont think is big enough to main event a card.

    He'd have to fight Faber or Almedia/Faber for either of them to headline a show right now.
