    Ok, so since an all out rumble is
    out of the question for some reason..
    (it's not like fighter safety is of priority
    considering the steroid exemptions
    going around) What would you do
    with the WW landscape as it stands?

    Robbie, Thompson, Macdonald, Maia,
    Condit, Gastelum, Magny, Hendricks,
    Brown, Story, Ellenberger, Tumenov,
    Larkin, Dong, Cerrone, Nelson, Diaz....

    Many rematches to make, many barn
    burners, many stylistic nightmares...
    But each one is more than capable of
    beating the other on a given night.

    I'd personally like to see Lawler get
    the Diaz fight as I think Robbie would
    be up for avenging the loss & it'd be
    a fight to set up a fight for the title.
    (This is all if Diaz isn't given it asap)

    If Diaz does come back & gets the TS.
    I'd like to see Larkin/Magny fight Robbie.
    Robbie could take a break from fighting
    the top 3 & both Larkin & Magny could
    use another crack at the upper echelon.

    I believe a Nelson/Dong fight would
    be great to see considering their strengths
    & fight styles. Brown v Tumenov makes
    a lot of sense right now, too.

    All I know, is that more than anything...
    I'm rooting for Maia to set up his title
    shot & land the sub of a lifetime
    (Condit's hasn't been tapped in 10
    years when Healy slapped the RNC on
    him in the third round)

    What about you sherdicks?
    Imagine you're the puppet master to
    this bracket filled with elite war mongers.
    What match ups do you think would
    supply the most blood at the altar of
    the JBG????

    You're only missing the stupid font color.

    Otherwise, you nailed every trick in the book for making an annoying thread

    Well to start you need to pick somebody out of that elite group of names to fight the WW titleholder . The rest can duke it out in a scrum and see who come out. Personally a Diaz/Lawler fight would be interesting anytime.

    Let's see Larkin in a 5 rounder
    against Cowboy/Brown/Lawler II

    & Let's see Maia sit on his sub
    of a lifetime & wait for the title shot.

    I chose him in this Condit fight
    & I'd choose him in a Wonderboy
    fight as well. Woodley is a question
    mark though. Mostly cause of his
    speed & power.
