    The matchmaking in this division is frustrating.
    We got dudes like Cruz, Lineker, Garbrandt, Dodson, Dillashaw, Caraway and i see none of them scheduled to fight eachother.

    Sean Selby, wake up dude. Don't wanna see mismatches like Garbrandt/Mizugaki.

    Dillashaw will probably fight Wineland next with the way things are going down there.

    I mean, who wanted to see Cruz/Faber 3 in the first place anyways?

    Rant over boys

    Its obvious they don't want to hype up the division until Mcgregor comes back down.

    It was kind of pointless indeed. But I wanted to see it, don't judge me.

    Yeah i admit when the fight got closer i got hyped myself. Purely because of the intense beef. Cruz still dislike the dude.

    Cruz lost to one of them and is begging them to keep TJ busy fighting everyone else. They will match Cody with Lineker to dispose of one dangerous fight for paper champ.

    Well when you have a champ like cruz, not a lot of people interested.

    I agree that Cody has no business being in there with mizugaki. Mizugaki has more high level experience in one arm than all of Cody's past opponents had combined.

    The UFC are buddies with the TAM guys so they get all the favorable match ups. Faber, Garbrandt, Dillashaw when he still was with them (now he didn't even get the rematch); they try to push those guys into title contention all the time.

    The UFC is dying and deserves to suffer.
