    Great a Frenchman trained in Canada is going to hump the shit out of a former active duty special forces soldier in front of his fellow servicemen that'll get a lot of cheers

    November 6th, and I like that match-up too but Carmont wouldn't be able to get a full camp in.

    Perhaps Lorenz Larkin? He's not fought since April when he got highway robbed by Carmont.
    edit: he's already booked to fight Camozzi on the same card, I phail.

    Sorry dude. I'm just throwing out ideas. Idk who makes sense.

    And if people don't want to be "humped", dont get taken down.

    Maybe Boestch? Did they find Rockhold's replacement yet?

    I haven't been keeping up with the ufc much lately.

    Brian Stann should come out of retirement for just this one fight, especially since what card it's on.

    Well he doesn't really have a choice if Carmont's wrestling is better, that is a big strong man getting good wrestling work training with GSP and Tristar its a shame he isn't more aggressive guy has the physical tools to be a killer but he is a Giant fucking blanket.

    Maybe Ronny Markes? He'd have to be pulled from his current fight but so what?

    Look, I agree that it can be boring but I can't hate on a guy for being too dominant.

    It's still a legit matchup and just seems to make sense looking at where both guys are in the division.

    And I'm not sure he'd molest Tim that easily either. Constas is just pretty one dimensional.

    But like someone else said, this fight probably won't happen.

    I am sure that someone with some name recognition would be needed so I don't think that someone like Tavares or Carmont would cut it. Rich Franklin and Cung Le are the most marketable names in the weight class but I don't see either one of them wanting to take a fight like this on short notice at this stage of their careers. (It can be noted that Franklin has been a team player for the UFC multiple times taking fights on short notice)

    Alan Belcher would be the guy that makes the most sense to me but I have to admit that I am in the dark on his condition and heard a rumor he might consider moving up to light heavyweight..

    1) Francis Carmont is an option, even though he couldn't get a full camp he's still in good shape because he only fought last week, not to mention he took very little damage.

    2) Tim Boetsch's fight with CB Dollaway may get scrapped so they could throw him in there.

    3) Lorenz Larkin is on that card fighting Chris Camozzi, but he's coming off a controversial loss and I don't want to see him get tossed to a bigger threat quite yet.

    Those are the first ones that come to mind.

    EDIT: Mousasi is a sick option, and I don't mind the Franklin or Belcher options either.

    I think Mousasi is injured an eyeing a return early next year, last I heard.

    Like said before I like Stann & mousasi. Also wouldn't be surprised if it was Bisbing.
