    Post it here. Barboza had a big win over a game Giblert. Eddie Alvarez had a great performance and finish of RDA. Khabib has defeated RDA and everyone in his way. Ferguson showed his mettle against Vannata and is on an 8 fight winning streak.

    Alvarez said he wants to fight the Conor vs Diaz winner. Most Sherbros prefer to see Ferg fight for the belt over Khabib. I would like to see this:

    Eddie vs Khabib
    Ferguson vs RDA
    Barboza vs Dustin/MJ winner

    I know the MJ fight would be a rematch for Barboza. He has shown clear improvements in his overall game since then.

    I think the UFC makes these fights:

    Eddie vs McGregor/Diaz winner
    Ferguson vs Khabib
    Barboza vs RDA

    Who do you want to see fight who at 155 pounds?

    Ferguson v Alvarez.

    Done.

    Khabib should prove his activeness before getting a title shot and Fergie looked pretty bad in his last fight.

    Alvarez vs. Barboza is the most appropiate choice imo

    It sucks he lost out on the Ferguson fight. He needs another win over a name guy imo. Who do you think he should fight next?

    Eddie and Barboza are training together. He hasn't said no to a title shot but he'd prefer not to fight Eddie. Also since Tony has a win over Edson I think he's at least behind Ferg at the moment.

    Give Ferg his title shot. Khabib has to prove first that he is durable & can make it to fight .

    Eddie vs Ferg
    Khabib vs Edson ( Title Eliminator )
    RDA vs Chiesa .

    Works for me. Boze is a really bad fight for Chiesa though. RIP Jiu-Jitsu Jesus.

    I'm not sure UFC puts RDA against Tony because Dos Anjos can beat him, even though that's the fight I want to see. I don't think UFC wants RDA as champ so I think they'll put him up against Barboza.

    Didn't forget. He hasn't said flat out no to a title shot, but yes he does not want to fight Alvarez.

    What do you mean? He would fight for the chance to fight for the title but if Eddie still has it he'd turn it down?

    I'm saying he hasn't been offered a title shot so we don't know that he'd turn it down even against Eddie. Yes he has said he doesn't want to fight Alvarez, but I don't think that will be his next fight regardless so it's not a proble at the moment.

    Right now he is at least behind Ferguson and Khabib so I think he is 1 or 2 wins from a titleshot either way. Eddie might not even have the belt by then.

    Oh okay. It gets super murky when you have two training partners so high up in a division. I think the Barboza/RDA matchup is the best one but I could see them giving him Will Brooks. Brooks doesn't have the ranking but we all know he's better than 12th. He has a name and was a champ in a former organization.

    Sherdog's matches to make suggested it but I think Edson would beat Brooks pretty handily honestly. He doesn't have the same problems with pressure fighting now that he had in the past.

    They'll give Brooks a top guy but I think they'll likely try and build him up a bit more, so it'll be someone besides Barboza I think.

    It's gotta be Ferguson imo. Alvarez/Ferguson is as guaranteed a barn-burner as you can get, and I don't really want Fitch 2.0 near the belt until he head and shoulders deserves it ahead of everyone else, which he doesn't.
