Kennedy should fight Bisping - Reason: Kennedy looked incredible. I was not expecting that. I thought Kennedy would come out and just dominate with his grappling. I was shocked, the knockout came out of nowhere and it was very impressive. It was a great way to end the night after a solid card. This was a big win for Kennedy, I can see him getting a big name next. One that stands out to me is Michael Bisping. This fight makes a ton of sense to me, You have the American Solider Tim Kennedy facing off against the brash trash talking Brit Michael Bisping. Also Bisping and Kennedy were going back and forth on Twitter the other day so I have a good feeling that this fight will happen and I'm glad. I really hope this fight gets booked, I think it would be a great fight. Kennedy could also fight Tim Boetsch or Cung Le.

Natal should fight Camozzi - Reason: Natal was looking good before he got caught with the punch that put him out. This was his first Main Event fight in the UFC and I'm not going to say that it was his last, actually it probably was his last. This was a big fight for Natal and he had a lot of pressure on him for this fight. He was fighting Kennedy on short notice and He had to do it in front of Five thousand troops. So I think the UFC appreciates him taking this fight and will take care of him and give him some breaks in the future. For his next fight I'd like to see him face Chris Camozzi. This fight makes a lot of sense and I think it would be a great fight. I hope this fight happens. Natal could also fight Ronny Markes or C.B. Dollaway.

114_liz_carmouche_vs_alexis_davis

Davis should fight McMann - Reason: Davis looked great. I thought if she was going to win this fight that she would have to do it with his grappling but she pretty much dominated the entire fight standing. I was impressed. I'd say she's very close to a title shot right now. I'd like to see her fight Sara McMann next. I love this fight, it makes sense and its a very interesting fight. I hope this fight gets booked. Davis could also fight Jessica Andrade or Amanda Nunes.

Carmouche should fight Kaufman - Reason: Carmouche looked alright in that fight. She landed a few solid shots but she couldn't really do much in there. Davis stayed in the center of the Octagon for most of the fight, keeping Carmouche with her back against the cage and Davis kinda picked her apart. I expect Carmouche to look a lot better in her next fight and I'd like to see her face Sarah Kaufman next. This fight makes sense to me and I think it'd be great. I like this fight a lot and I think it'll happen. I hope I'm right. Carmouche could also fight Germaine de Randamie or Miesha Tate.

5_medium_medium

Romero should fight Larkin - Reason: Romero looked unbelievable in that fight. Hes so fast and explosive, its just amazing. He stuffed I think all of Markes's takedowns, kept the fight standing and really picked Markes apart for 11+ minutes until he finally knocked him out. It was a brutal knockout, Markes was done once he hit the ground but the ref didn't step in so Romero had to crack him a few more times. Markes shouldn't have taken those few extra shots and the ref is 100% to blame. Stop the fight when the guy's staring up at the lights and not covering his face. Back to Romero, he looked like a contender in that fight. I have high hopes for this guy, hes 36 but that doesn't matter. Hes a tremendous athlete, he is a great wrestler and he has scary power. The sky is the limit for this guy. I'd like to see him fight Lorenz Larkin next. This fight makes sense and it just has Bangfest written all over it. I think this would be a Fight of the Year candidate. I'm dying to see this one. I really hope this fight happens. Romero could also fight Brad Tavares or Derek Brunson.

103_ronny_markes_vs_yoel_romero

Markes should fight McDaniel - Reason: Markes didn't look great. He landed some nice shots here and there but he was on the defensive for most of the fight. Romero finally knocked him out early in Round 3 and it was brutal. It'll be interesting to see how Markes comes back after this devastating loss. I believe he'll bounce back in his next fight and look better than ever. I think he should fight Bubba McDaniel next. This fight makes sense to me and I think I like this fight. I hope it happens. Markes could also fight Rafael Natal or C.B. Dollaway.

Rustamkhabilov2_medium

110613-ufc-khabilov-vs-masvidal-hf-pi_20131106212251114_600_400_jpg_medium

Khabilov should fight Makdessi - Reason: Khabilov looked good. It was a very close fight but I did think Khabilov won it and I was happy to see him get the decision. I believe the wheel kick that he landed in the third round won him that round and the fight. The kick came out of nowhere and it was awesome. It was a great fight. I'd like to see Khabilov fight John Makdessi next. This fight makes a lot of sense to me and I think it'd be a very fun fight. I hope that fight happens. Khabilov could also fight Myles Jury and The Winner of Barboza vs Castillo.

4_medium_medium

Masvidal should fight Sanchez - Reason: Masvidal looked good even though he lost. That third round cost him the fight. I don't like Masvidal at all, can't stand the guy but I think hes solid. Hes a very talented fighter and I expect him to look great in his next fight. I'd like to see him fight Diego Sanchez next. I absolutely love this fight. It makes sense, they've both fought and lost to Gilbert Melendez and it would be a war. I really hope this fight gets booked. Masvidal could also fight Renee Forte or Matt Wiman.

Chiesa should fight Njokuani - Reason: Chiesa looked fantastic. I was impressed, I expected him to go in there and get the submission win and he did exactly that. It was a great performance. I'd like to see Chiesa fight Anthony Njokuani next. I like this fight a lot and It makes sense. Its a classic style vs style match up which I really like. I think it would be a terrific fight and I hope it happens. Chiesa could also fight Tony Ferguson or Norman Parke.

075_colton_smith_vs_michael_chiesa

Smith should fight Hallmann - Reason: Smith didn't look good. He might get cut. I don't think he should but it might happen. His two losses in the UFC were against two very tough guys who happened to win The Ultimate Fighter just like him. So hopefully that'll get him one more fight in the UFC. One last shot. I'd like to see him fight Piotr Hallmann next. This fight makes sense and I think it'd be good. I hope it happens. Smith could also fight Renee Forte or Jon Tuck.

128_bobby_green_and_james_krause

Bobby-green-james-krause-featured_medium

Green should fight Krause - Reason: Green looked good. He was winning the fight. He hit Krause low twice, got a point taken away and then Green threw a body kick that hit Krause on the belt line. It was close to the cup though and Krause fell to the mat. He was acting as though he was kicked in the balls very hard, I believe it was total BS and he was just trying to get another point taken away from Green. Big John seemed to feel the same as me and just said "Thats it, its over, Green wins." I was happy, I was rooting for Green and I thought the last kick was clean. I think Krause was faking and I'm glad he lost the fight. Now that being said, I do believe that there will be an immediate rematch. I don't personally want to see it or believe that Krause deserves it but it was certainly controversial and many people would like to see an immediate rematch. So it'll probably happen. I hope he knocks Krause's head off.

064_bobby_green_vs_james_krause

Krause should fight Green - Reason: Krause didn't look good. He was losing the fight in my opinion up until the second low blow, then Green lost a point, then he got kicked again and tried to get another point taken from Green. However it back fired, Big John stopped the fight and gave Green the win. This is just how I saw it. Krause will get his chance to redeem himself, I'm positive they'll do an immediate rematch.

Rivera should fight Reis - Reason: Rivera looked phenomenal. He was picking Roop apart on the feet and once he had him hurt he never let him recover. He swarmed on in. I'd have to say that was his best performance to date. I was blown away. Rivera's a beast. For his next fight I'd like to see him face Wilson Reis. I like this fight a lot. It makes sense to me and I hope it happens. Rivera could also fight T.J. Dillashaw or The Winner of Mizugaki vs Phan.

1_medium_medium

Roop should fight Menjivar - Reason: Roop looked bad but he'll be back. Hes very thin at 135 lbs, I'd really like to see him move back up to 145 lbs. I think that would be much better for him. I hope he makes that move soon. If his next fight is at 135 lbs I'd like to see him fight Ivan Menjivar. This fight makes a ton of sense to me and I think it'd be great. I hope that fight happens. Roop could also fight Mike Easton or Hugo Viana.

7832740-750x340-1383703102_medium

Bermudez should fight Elkins - Reason: Bermudez looked good. He pretty much dominated the fight. It was a solid performance. I think its time for a bump up in competition. I'd like to see him get someone ranked a little higher for his next fight. I think a fight against Darren Elkins makes a lot of sense. I really like this fight and I think its the right fight for Bermudez at the moment. I hope that fight happens. Bermudez could also fight Conor McGregor or Jeremy Stephens.

1_medium_medium

Siler should fight Holloway - Reason: I thought Siler looked good in that fight, just was a bad match up for him. He had his moments, he had Bermudez in some trouble with a couple of submissions attempts but Bermudez kept getting out of them. It was a good fight but it just wasn't Siler's night. He'll be back though and I think hes still going to make some noise in the Featherweight division. For his next fight I'd like to see him face someone who also lost to Bermudez, Max Holloway. I think that'd be a great fight and its a fight that makes sense. I hope it happens. Siler could also fight Hatsu Hioki or Charles Oliveira.

7836786-590x431_medium

Nunes should fight Eye - Reason: Nunes looked great, She dominated. The fight was stopped a little bit early but she was dominating and Randamie wasn't getting out of there. It was a fantastic performance and I expect Nunes to get a big name next. I'd like to see Nunes fight Jessica Eye next. This fight makes sense and I think it'd be a great scrap. I hope that fight gets booked. Nunes could also fight Alexis Davis or Jessica Andrade.

1_medium_medium

Randamie should fight Sexton - Reason: Once Nunes got on top of Randamie she couldn't do anything. She was trapped and she wasn't getting out of there. Randamie will be back and I'd like to see her face Rosi Sexton next. I like this fight, it makes sense and I think it'd be good. I hope it happens. Randamie could also fight Liz Carmouche or Miesha Tate.

Larkin should fight Romero - Reason: I thought Larkin looked amazing. He hit Camozzi with some bombs and smashed his face up. I was very impressed. I'd love to see Larkin fight Yoel Romero next. I think this would be an incredible fight. I think it'd be a war. This fight makes sense and it would be very entertaining. I really hope it gets booked. Larkin could also fight Cung Le or Brad Tavares.

Chris_camozzi__vs

Camozzi should fight Natal - Reason: Camozzi didn't look great but he didn't look terrible. I thought he fought hard, hes very tough. He got hit with some bombs and just ate them. I like Camozzi. I'd like to see him fight Rafael Natal next. This fight makes sense to me and I hope it happens. Camozzi could also fight Tom Watson or C.B. Dollaway.

Yancy-medeiros-knockout-yves-edwards-ufc-fftt-3_medium

Hi-res-7836444_crop_exact_medium

7836460-415x250_medium

Medeiros should fight Tavares - Reason: Medeiros is for real. This was a very fun fight. These two were going back and forth, both were tagging each other and then out of nowhere Edwards hit the floor. Medeiros's boxing looked great. I was very impressed. Keep an eye out for this guy. I'd like to see Medeiros fight Thiago Tavares next. I really like this fight. It makes sense, Tavares did say that hes thinking about dropping down to 145 lbs but I don't think he should, his chin is already suspect at 155 lbs, a bigger weight cut won't help matters. So I hope he stays at Lightweightand I hope he fights Medeiros next. I'd really like to see this fight happen. Medeiros could also fight Adriano Martins or Al Iaquinta.

1_medium_medium

Edwards should fight Sotiropoulos - Reason: Edwards was looking good up to the knockout. He was landing some hard shots and then he got dropped. Theres a chance he could be getting cut, this was his third loss in a row but I think he'll get one more shot. I'd like to see him fight George Sotiropoulos next. I like this fight, it makes sense and it'd definitely be a loser leaves town fight. I hope this fight happens. Edwards could also fight Justin Salas or Mike Rio.

7832698-750x340-1383703130_medium

Baczynski should fight Thompson - Reason: Baczynski looked alright. It was a close fight but I definitely thought he deserved to get the win. Baczynski didn't look great so I could see them throwing him to the wolves in his next fight. I think they'll put him there with a knockout artist like Stephen Thompson. I like this fight, it makes sense and I think it'll happen. I hope that I'm right and the fight gets booked. Baczynski could also fight Sean Pierson or Igor Araujo.

1_medium_medium

Magny should fight Zeferino - Reason: Magny had his moments in that fight but I didn't think he looked good at all. Theres a good chance he could be cut. Hes only lost two fights in a row but its just a feeling I have. If hes not released I'd like to see him fight Joao Zeferino. This fight makes sense and I think it'd be good. I hope it happens. Magny could also fight Justin Edwards or Santiago Ponzinibbio.

Derek-brunson-submission-brian-houston-ufc-fftt-3_medium

001_derek_brunson_vs_brian_houston

Brunson should fight Neto - Reason: Brunson looked great. It was a fantastic performance. He rocked Houston with a headkick and then finished the fight with a rear naked choke. It was beautiful. My opinion of Brunson has definitely changed now because of that fight. I thought he was a very good athlete who had a boring style, not anymore. I'm actually excited to see his next fight. I'd like to see Brunson face Antonio Braga Neto next. I really like this fight, it makes sense and I think it'd be great. I hope that fight gets booked. Brunson could also fight Yoel Romero or Brad Tavares.

1_medium_medium

Houston should fight Smith - Reason: We didn't get to see much of Brian Houston in that fight. It was over very quickly. I do think he'll get another shot in the UFC, he took that fight on short notice so I think he'll get another fight. I'd like to see him fight Trevor Smith next. I think this fight makes sense and I'd like to see it happen. I hope it gets booked. Houston could also fight Thiago Perpetuo or Tor Troeng.
