Here is another Who Should Fight Who.
Shields should fight Kim - Reason: I enjoyed this fight. Some say it was boring but I was entertained. I didn't expect Shields to do as well as he did. I was a bit surprised. He looked to be the bigger and stronger guy in there and his wrestling and JJ got him the W. I actually thought Maia won the fight but it was very close and I could see how Shields got the nod so I'm fine with the decision. Either way I was impressed with Shields. For his next fight I'd like to see him face Dong Hyun Kim. I really like this fight, it makes sense and I hope it gets booked. I think its a very interesting fight. Shields could also fight The Winner of Lawler vs MacDonald or The Winner of Marquardt vs Lombard.
Maia should fight Pierce - Reason: Maia looked good but he wasn't able to do much off his back which is where he spent most of the fight. I thought he won but Shields had top control for a good chunk of the fight and that is why he got the decision. Maia will bounce back in his next fight, he thought he won and I think he'll come out very aggressive in his next fight. I want to see him fight Mike Pierce. This fight makes sense and I really want to see it. Hope it happens. Maia could also fight Erick Silva or Mike Pyle.
Kim should fight Shields - Reason: Everyone was shocked by that knockout. Nobody saw that coming, It was awesome. Kim looked great, he was winning the fight and then he laid the flashy young striker out cold. It was really out of nowhere. For his next fight I want to see him face Jake Shields. It makes sense and it should happen. I hope it gets booked. Kim could also fight Gunnar Nelson or The Winner of Koscheck vs Woodley.
Silva should fight Krauss - Reason: Silva got caught but he'll be back. Hopefully this loss will be good for him and hopefully he'll work on his striking defense and be sure to keep his hands up. For his next fight I'd like to see him face Pascal Krauss. I love this fight, it would be great. I really hope this fight happens. Silva could also fight Ildemar Alcantara orDemian Maia.
Silva should fight St. Preux - Reason: Silva looked alright. He missed weight and really needed to impress here and I don't think he did. He did dominate the fight but he looked sloppy and had Hamill hurt badly for most of the last round but couldn't finish him. Even though he won that fight hes kind of taken a step back. I think he should fight Ovince St. Preux next. This fight makes sense to me. I like this fight and I hope it happens. Silva could also fight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira or The Winner of Jimmo vs Manuwa.
Hamill should fight Beltran - Reason: Hamill's tough as hell but he didn't look good in that fight. The main reasons for that would be he was facing one of the best Light Heavyweights in the world, he was fighting him in his country and Hamill's pal who would sign to him during his fights left him before this fight so he really had everyone going against him. I don't want to see him get cut and I don't think he will get cut. I want to see him fight Joey Beltran next. This fight makes sense and it should happen next. Hamill could also fight The Loser of Manuwa vs Jimmo or The Loser of Pokrajac vs Cavalcante.
Maldonado should fight Diabate - Reason: Maldonado looked good. His Takedown defense was very good and that let him work his boxing. All Beltran could do was lean against him on the cage and try to work some dirty boxing. None of which worked, Maldonado picked him apart for most of the fight. For his next fight I want to see him face Cyrille Diabate. This fight makes sense and it would be awesome. It would be a stand up war and I really want to see it. I hope this fight happens. Maldonado could also fight The Winner of Jimmo vs Manuwa or The Winner of Cavalcante vs Pokrajac.
Beltran should fight Hamill - Reason: Beltran didn't look good. I think he'll get another fight in the UFC but I do think he is close to being cut. He looked to be in very good shape, physique wise. I hope he lets his hands go in his next fight and I want to see him clinch a lot less. For his next fight I think he should face Matt Hamill. This fight makes sense and I think it'd be a loser leaves town fight. I hope this fight happens. Beltran could also fight The Loser of Jimmo vs Manuwa or The Loser of Bader vs Perosh.
Palhares has been cut. Palhares is a monster. He is the best leg lock specialist in mixed martial arts by far. I thought Peirce would be able to avoid Palhares's sub attempts but that was not the case. Palhares is just too damn good. He locked up a heel hook and wouldn't let go. This was the reason he was released, he has a history of not letting go of submissions after his opponents have tapped out. I think hes going to be hard to stop at 170 lbs especially now that hes going to have to fight outside of the UFC. There are only two guys outside of the UFC at 170 that I see being able to beat Toquinho. Ben Askren who might be signing with the UFC soon and Jon Fitch who said he will not fight Palhares. So I expect Palhares to become the champ where ever he lands. I also think he'll be allowed back into the UFC in a year or two if he continues to win and doesn't hold onto submissions too long.
Pierce should fight Maia - Reason: Pierce was very aggressive right off the bat and thats why I think he lost this fight. Palhares is an absolute beast and you don't want to get close enough for him to drop down for a leg. Pierce should have stayed on the outside and boxed Palhares up but he didn't and he got subbed. It happens. He'll be back, Peirce is solid but he doesn't get any respect from the media. I want to see him get on a main card soon and I think he will in his next fight. I think he'll be fighting Demian Maia next. This fight just makes a ton of sense to me and I like it. It would be a great fight and I really hope it gets booked. Pierce could also fight Mike Pyle or Thiago Alves.
Assuncao should fight Wineland - Reason: It was a very close fight, both guys looked good. Assuncao is close to a title shot now with this win and I'd say hes one or two wins away from getting a crack at the belt. For his next fight I'd like to see him face Eddie Wineland. This fight makes sense to me and it would be a very fun fight. Hope it happens. Assuncao could also fight The Winner of Faber vs McDonald or Renan Barao.
Dillashaw should fight Pickett - Reason: Dillahsaw looked good, I thought he did enough to get the W but it was a very close fight and it was in Brazil. I expect Dillashaw to bounce back in his next fight. I think he should fight Brad Pickett. I've wanted to see thigh fight for a while now and I feel that now is the perfect time for it to finally happen. I really like this fight, it makes sense and it would be a great fight. I really hope this one gets booked. Dillashaw could also fight Ivan Menjivar or Iuri Alcantara.
Araujo should fight Hathaway - Reason: Araujo looked really good. He dominated the fight and I was very surprised. He controlled Alcantara who was a big favorite for most of the fight. It was a solid UFC debut. For his next fight I'd like to see Araujo face John Hathaway. This fight makes sense to me and I think its the right fight for Araujo. Hope it happens. Araujo could also fight Yan Cabral or The Winner of Waldburger vs Amagov.
Alcantara should fight The Loser of Koscheck vs Woodley - Reason: Alcantara looked bad again. His last fight he just controlled his opponent for 15 minutes and stunk up the Octagon, this time around he was the one getting controlled. I thought this guy was going to make some waves at 170 lbs after he submitted Wagner Prado at 205 lbs but it hasn't happened yet. I hope he can impress me again soon. I want to see Alcantara fight The Loser of Koscheck vs Woodley next. This fight makes sense and I think it'd be a great fight. I hope this one gets booked. Alcantara could also fight Erick Silva or Mike Pyle.
Cabral should fight Silverio - Reason: Cabral looked great. Hes a great grappler and I can see him doing big things in the UFC. It was a good fight, Cabral pretty much dominated but Mitchell is very tough and he defended all of Cabral's submission attempts and proved that his JJ isn't too shabby either. I would like to see Cabral fight Elias Silverio next. This fight makes sense to me and I think it'd be a very fun fight. I really like this fight and I hope it happens. Cabral could also fight Igor Araujo or The Winner of Waldburger vs Amagov.
Mitchell should fight Clements - Reason: Mitchell didn't look great but I thought he did a good enough job to get one more fight in the UFC. He could get cut but I hope he doesn't. If he does get another shot in the UFC I'd like to see him fight Chris Clements. This fight makes sense and I think it'd be a good one. I hope this fight gets booked. Mitchell could also fight Joao Zeferino or Ivan Jorge.
Cariaso should fight The Winner of Elliott vs Bagautinov - Reason: Cariaso looked great. Once he had Santos hurt he poured it on and didn't let him recover. It was a very good performance. For his next fight I'd like to see him face The Winner of Elliott vs Bagautinov. This fight makes sense and it would be awesome. I hope this fight happens. Cariaso could also fight Louis Gaudinot or The Winner of Lineker vs Harris.
Santos should fight Gashimov - Reason: Santos didn't look great, he got finished and this was his third loss in a row. He'll probably be cut but if hes not I'd like to see him fight Azamat Gashimov. This fight makes sense and it would be a good one. I hope it happens. Santos could also fight Jussier Formiga or The Loser of Elliott vs Bagautinov.
Patrick should fight Vick - Reason: Patrick looked great, it was a fantastic debut. He knocked Whiteley out halfway through the first round and it was awesome. For his next fight I'd like to see him face James Vick. I think fight makes sense and I really hope it happens. Patrick could also fight Jesse Ronson or Rafaello Oliveira.
Whiteley should fight Nijem - Reason: Whiteley got knocked out midway through the first round, not a great first impression but I believe he'll get another shot and I'd like to see him fight Ramsey Nijem. This fight makes sense and I just see it happening. Whiteley could also fight Spencer Fisher or The Loser of Ferguson vs Rio.
