    Put yourself in Sean Shelby shoes. You get to matchmake RDAs felders and Islam's next fight.

    RDA: Former champ new division just beat the 7 ranked fighter should probably get a top 5 fighter
    (Myself I'm thinking him and Gaethje would be a crazy fight)
    Last five fights

    Felder: Lost clearly but we also have to consider it was short notice. ( I know he made Do Bronx tap to strikes and he probably doesn't get excited for another fight against him but I think considering he's on a losing streak he should take)
    Last five fights

    Islam: The guy that was supposed to fight but unfortunately got hit with a nasty infection. On a 6 fight winning streak should probably get a top 10 opponent but you never know. (I'm thinking him and Hooker on a fight night headline.. Id love to see that)

    I mean, hopefully Felder goes away, and the UFC stops forcing his shitty product on us. Islam needs to fucking fight. RDA will continue to gatekeep, he's not losing to anyone who isn't legit IMO.

    RDA can fight Hooker.
    Felder vs Al.

    Islam can go to Bellator and prove that he belongs in the UFC.

    Felder vs Pettis or Cerrone (since Felder will only accept "exciting" - read big name - fights)

    RDA vs Al (he deserves to fight down after that lackluster performance)

    Islam vs Ferguson/Gaethje

    Give Felder some bum he can KO as reward for stepping up and a break between so many 5 round wars. Give Islam a fight outside top 10 he doesn't deserve it for ruining this fight. It was his big step up and he blew it. RDA should fight either Chandler or Poirier for the next title shot if Conor actually fighting Gaethje.

    You're right I also hate seeing fighters like Al Iaquinta even though I respect him hold up the rankings when we have unranked fighters that are so much better imo. Fighters like Arman Fiziev Moicano Mustafaev Guram Riddell and Damir all deserve a big fight to get em into the rankings or closer.

    Many still believe he's champ material and I'm one of them. I'm not delusional I know he needs to work on some stuff but he's really learned a lot from that TKO L he took. Also he has Khabib around him.

    Islam vs Kevin Lee I love that but do you think UFC wants to make it?

    Why Trinaldo? Usually when you're on a 5 fight winning streak you get a top 10 opponent and Islam is on a 6 fight winning streak.

    He needs to prove it ASAP. Guy fights as often as Jon Jones at this point. Until he is actually in the cage, getting announced against a ranked fighter, I couldn't care less about him.

    Islam or Ali, whoever is managing this guy is doing it all wrong. Islam should be fighting anyone and everyone to actually be considered for something. All I see is begging and crying that he deserves a top spot, IF he does deserve a top spot, he might as well fight whoever is put in front of him.

    Dude fought more than 1 year ago. How is this even reliable? He behaves like a superstar when he is nothing but unproven.
