Ufc-on-fuel-tv-9-latifi-poster_medium

Here is another Who Should Fight Who.

Mousasi should fight The Winner of Shogun vs Nogueira - Reason: I've always wanted to see Mousasi fight both Nogueira and Shogun and now it can finally happen. Of course like most of you I'd like to see Mousasi fight Gustaffson next because it was supposed already have happened and the whole cut situation has just left a bad taste in mouth but since Mousasi has talked about a Knee injury that will most likely require surgery I figure he will be out for at least 6 months and I don't expect Gustaffson to wait that long. So a fight against The Winner of Shogun vs Nogueira makes all the sense in the world and it would be an amazing fight. I hope Mousasi recovers quickly and I hope this fight gets booked. Mousasi could also fight The Winner of Hendo vs Evans or Ryan Bader.

Latifi should fight Vera - Reason: So heres how I feel about Latifi, I like him a lot. He stepped up and took the fight on less than a weeks notice and he did a good job, he got beat up but he was never out of the fight. He was in there with a killer and he survived the entire 15 minutes. I'm glad Dana said he earned another fight in the UFC, I don't think they'll give him someone at the bottom for his next fight, I think it'll be someone in the middle like Brandon Vera. Vera has been on the shelf for a while now and I expect him to book a fight soon. This would be a good fight for both guys, it'll show us if Latifi is ready for the big leagues or not. Latifi could also fight Cyrille Diabate or Matt Hamill.

Pearson should fight Sanchez - Reason: Pearson looked good, he messed Couture up, I'd like to see him do the same thing to Diego Sanchez next. Sanchez "beat" Takanori Gomi last month and should be looking for another fight soon and I'd like it to be against Pearson. I think it would a very good fight. Pearson could also fight Bobby Green or Reza Madadi.

Couture should fight Edwards - Reason: I hope he doesn't get cut, I'm not a fan but I would feel bad for him if he did get cut. I think he'll get one more chance and I think thats fair, I'd like to see him fight Yves Edwards. Edwards is a step down from Pearson but hes still a very good fighter. It would be a tough fight for Couture but its definitely a winnable one. Couture could also fight George Sotiropoulos or Michael Johnson.

Mitrione should fight The Winner of Barry vs Jordan - Reason: Mitrione just smashed a guy in under 20 seconds so it was a big win for him but it was against a guy who doesn't belong in the UFC. So I'd like to see him fight someone on his level and The Winner of Barry vs Jordan will fit the bill. That would be a great fight, an absolute Bangfest. I hope they set that up but if they don't Mitrione could also fight Todd Duffee or Ben Rothwell.

De Fries should fight Del Rosario - Reason: I'm pretty sure this guy is going to get cut, if he doesn't then I'll be shocked but if he doesn't I think a fight with Shane Del Rosario would work and it would be a 100% Loser Leaves Town Fight. It would be a good fight, neither guy is really worthy of being in the UFC right now but this fight would make sense. De Fries could also fight Dave Herman.

Pickett should fight The Winner of Faber vs Jorgensen - Reason: Brad Pickett is one of the best Bantamweights in the world, he says he wants to fight someone ranked above him well there really isn't anyone above him besides Faber that he can fight so a fight with The Winner of Faber vs Jorgensen works perfectly. If Faber wins that fight then great hes already above Pickett and if Jorgensen wins that fight then he'd shoot up above Pickett as well so it works. I hope that fight happens next, I think it should and I think it will. Pickett could also fight Michael McDonald or Takeya Mizugaki.

Easton should fight The Loser of Faber vs Jorgensen - Reason: Easton is solid, he only loses to top guys and I think hes going to fight another top guy. A fight against The Loser of Faber vs Jorgensen, I don't know I just like it. For some reason I see this being Easton's next fight. It would be very tough they could try to build him back up against mid level guys but I just think they're going to give him another top 10 guy. If they don't match him up with another Top 10 guy then I could see someone like Francisco Rivera or Bryan Caraway being his next opponent.

Brandao should fight Yahya - Reason: Brandao is a little beast, I thought he'd lose to Garza but he ended up dominating him. I was a little shocked by that, I think hes a solid FW who needs a step up in competition and Rani Yahya would be a step up for sure. It would be a good fight. Brandao could also fight Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier.

Garza should fight Grice - Reason: He got schooled by Brandao, I thought he'd win that fight but hes still a good fighter and I'd like to see him fight Matt Grice. I think that would be a very fun fight. Garza could also fight Robbie Peralta or Antonio Carvalho.

Corassani should fight The Winner of Sicilia vs Blanco - Reason: This was a big upset in my eyes, I thought Corassani would get knocked out early but he won and I don't like that. I'm not a fan of this guy and I'd like to see him fight someone who can knock his head off, The Winner of Sicilia vs Blanco can definitely do that. I'd love to see one of these guys pound Corassani's face in, I hope it gets booked. Corassani could also fight The Winner of Palaszewski vs Miller or Milton Vieira.

Peralta should fight Hettes - Reason: Peralta looked alright in his fight with Corassani, so I think he'll get a tough opponent next, someone like Jimmy Hettes. I think it would be a fun fight. Peralta could also fight Pablo Garza or The Loser of Holloway vs Bermudez.

Madadi should fight Chiesa - Reason: I was shocked once again on Saturday, this time it was when Madadi beat Michael Johnson. I don't know how he did it but he did, I'd like to see him fight another guy from TUF Mike Chiesa. I think this fight makes sense and I hope it happens. Madadi could also fight Ross Pearson or Mike Ricci.

Johnson should fight Cruickshank - Reason: I really thought Michael Johnson was turning a corner when he beat Danny Castillo last year but since then hes gone 0-2 and hes looked bad in both of those fights. I don't know whats up with him but I think a fight with Daron Cruickshank would be great for him. It'd be a stand up fight and I'd love it. I hope it happens but if it doesn't Johnson could also fight The Winner of Stout vs Vallie-Flagg or Mike Ricci.

Troeng should fight Kuiper - Reason: Troeng looked good, I'd like to see him get a big step up in competition and fight Michael Kuiper. I think that would be a great fight. Troeng could also fight The Loser of Natal vs Camozzi or Stanislav Nedkov.

Cella should fight Cane - Reason: Cella is a small MW, he got dominated by Troeng I'd really like to see him drop down to 170 but if he gets another fight in the UFC at MW I think Luiz Cane would be a good opponent for him. Cella could also fight Jared Hamman or Buddy Roberts.

Amagov should fight Lim - Reason: Amagov is very good, hes got great kicks. I'd like to see him fight Hyun Gyu Lim. I think that fight would be a stand up war. I hope it happens. Amagov could also fight Pascal Krauss or Ryan LaFlare.

Spang should fight Alloway - Reason: He didn't look good in his fight against Amagov so I'd like to see him fight someone who also didn't look good on that card Benny Alloway. This fight makes sense to me, I hope it happens. Spang could also fight Besam Yousef or Dan Miller.

McGregor should fight Guida - Reason: This guy is the real deal, he absolutely destroyed Marcus Brimage. I was very impressed and I think hes going to get a top guy next and I think Clay Guida will be that guy. I really want to see McGregor beat the crap out of him. They might not give him such a tough opponent next but if they do I think the Guida fight makes a lot of sense. McGregor could also fight Diego Brandao or The Winner of Bermudez vs Holloway.

Brimage should fight Hioki - Reason: Before Brimage got annihilated by McGregor I thought he was very solid a Top 20 guy but now I don't know, it could be that McGregor is that good or that Brimage just isn't that good. One way to find out is to have him fight one of the best in the division Hatsu Hioki. I like this fight a lot, it would be a good rebound fight for both guys and I hope it gets booked. Brimage could also fight Erik Koch or Matt Grice.

LaFlare should fight Krauss - Reason: I didn't know much about this guy before the fight but he dominated Alloway and looked very good. I'd like to see him fight Pascal Krauss, I think they're both on the same level and it would make for a great fight. I hope that fight gets booked. LaFlare could also fight Adlan Amagov or Hyun Gyu Lim.

Alloway should fight Spang - Reason: I thought he would win his fight with LaFlare but I was wrong, it just wasn't his night I'd like to see him fight Chris Spang. I think this fight makes sense and should happen next. Alloway could also fight fight Besam Yousef or Dan Miller.

Lawlor should fight Watson - Reason: I was impressed with Lawlor, he was losing the fight and he came back and got the submission. Hes very entertaining and I'd like to see him fight another entertainer Tom Watson. This would be a good fight and the walk outs would be fantastic. I hope this fight happens if not Lawlor could also fight The Winner of Markes vs Brunson or Brad Tavares.

Kuiper should fight Troeng - Reason: Kuiper was doing really well in his fight with Lawlor but he just got caught in a choke, it happens. I'd like to see him fight Tor Toreng, it would be a fun fight and I hope it happens. Kuiper could also fight Nick Ring or Stanislav Nedkov.

Abedi should fight Robertson - Reason: Abedia finally got a win in the UFC, I don't want to see him get thrown to the wolves so I'd like to see him fight Kenny Robertson. I think thats a fair fight and it should be a good one. Abedi could also fight The Winner of Thompson vs Burrell or Kyle Noke.

Yousef should fight Voelker - Reason: He lost a close fight to Abedi and I'd like to see him fight another guy who just lost a close fight Bobby Voelker. I think that would be a good fight and I hope it happens. Yousef could also fight Dan Miller or Benny Alloway.
