Here is another Who Should Fight Who.
Henderson should fight The Winner of Maynard vs Grant - Reason: Henderson didn't look amazing against Melenedez but he got it done. Hes still the best. He threw some nice standing elbows but other than that it was a lot of the same stuff we're used to seeing from Bendo. We found out that Henderson will be fighting The Winner of Gray Maynard vs TJ Grant next and I'm happy about that. I think that'll be a great fight, Maynard has been at the top of the division for a long time now and Grant has looked great as of late. Either one of those guys vs Bendo will be fantastic.
Melendez should fight The Winner of Cerrone vs Noons - Reason: Now I thought Melendez was going to get dominated by Bendo and he didn't. I'm glad I was wrong, its good to know that we have another serious contender in the division. I still think he was a little overrated but after that performance I think hes one of the best in the world. He almost won the fight, some think he won it but I don't, it was close but I think he lost 49-46 or 48-47. I'm sure he'll be fighting the for that belt again soon. I'd like to see him fight The Winner of Cerrone vs Noons next. I know Losers vs Winners piss some of you off but in this case I think its fine and it makes sense. Melendez just lost and should be fighting someone in the lower part of the top 10 or outside the top 10 considering whos in the top 10 right now and I think The Winner of Cerrone vs Noons is perfect. I think a fight against either of those two would be awesome, I hope it gets booked. Melendez could also fight The Loser of Maynard vs Grant or The Winner of Nurmagomedov vs Trujillo. I'd actually like to see Melendez drop down to 145, if he did drop down I'd like to see him fight Clay Guida.
Cormier should fight The Winner of Henderson vs Evans - Reason: DC looked good, he played it safe later on in the fight but he looked really good. He was throwing solid knees and great punches all night, he looked very fast and strong and a lot smaller than Mir. I think hes finally going to make the drop to 205, he said that he wants a warm up fight before he fights Jones, now I know that doesn't mean hes not going to fight Jones next he definitely could but if he does get his warm up fight I'd like for it to be against The Winner of Henderson vs Evans. It would be a great fight and it would be a perfect #1 Contender fight. Jones is fighting Sonnen this weekend, hes going to win and then heres how the 205 contender situation was supposed to unfold. After Jones beats Sonnen, Machida and Gustaffson were going to fight while DC and Jones fought but now that DC has said that he wants 1 fight at 205 before the title shot that screws everything up. Now I think Jones will fight Machida next and Gustaffson will fight somebody else. While thats all going on I expect DC to fight The Winner of Hendo vs Evans. I hope it happens. DC could also fight The Winner of Teixeira vs Te Huna or The Winner of Shogun vs Nogueira.
Mir should fight Overeem - Reason: I thought Mir was going to get destroyed by DC but he made it through all 3 rounds. I'd like to see him fight another top guy whos coming off a loss Alistair Overeem. I think that would be a great fight. I really want to see him fight Josh Barnett but hes not in the UFC right now, if he ever signs with the UFC I hope to see that fight and I also want to see Mir fight Fabricio Werdum but hes fighting Nogueira and if he wins that fight he'll probably be fighting for the title, if he happens to lose to Nogueira I'd love to see him and Mir finally fight. But next I think Mir should fight Reem, I like that fight and it makes sense. Hope it happens. Mir could also fight Stefan Struve or The Loser of Velasquez vs Silva.
Thomson should fight The Winner of Miller vs Healy - Reason: Jesus Christ, Josh Thomson is the man. I thought he'd beat Diaz but I never dreamed he would knock him silly like he did, that headkick was working for him all night, he landed it like 3 times and the last one he landed clean, shin on skull and it put Diaz on queer street and he finished him. He was beating on Diaz so bad that Diaz's corner threw the towel in, haven't seen that in a long time in the UFC. By the way The Ref with the Braided beard is terrible, when Diaz went face down after getting dropped it could have been stopped there but BB didn't think so, thats just how BB rolls. Anyway that guy sucks and Josh Thomson is a beast I want to see him fight The Winner of Jim Miller vs Pat Healynext. That fight would be great, it makes sense and I hope it happens. Thomson could also fight The Winner of Nurmagomedov vs Trujillo or The Winner of Dunham vs Dos Anjos.
Diaz should fight Lauzon - Reason: Diaz came out and was doing what he always does and Thomson was ready for it, he couldn't corner Thomson or bait him into a brawl but he was trying to. He looked very slow and one dimensional out there, he lost and he lost badly. This was his first knockout loss it'll be interesting to see how he bounces back from this, I'd like to see him fight Joe Lauzon next. They were on the same season of TUF together and I don't know why they haven't already fought, this fight gives me goosebumps. Their styles would make for an amazing fight, it would be great. I hope it happens. Diaz could also fight Myles Jury or Diego Sanchez.
Brown should fight Kim - Reason: Brown is a monster, he came out extremely aggressive and just destroyed Jordan Mein, it was crazy. He was smashing Mein with everything from Vicious Elbows to brutal knees in the clinch Mein just had no answer for it. It was a very impressive performance from Brown and he needs a step up in competition, so I'd like to see him fight Dong Hyun Kim. They fought a while back and Kim won by Split Decision, I think its time for a rematch. I think it makes sense and I hope it happens. Brown could also fight Josh Koscheck or Martin Kampmann.
Mein should fight Bahadurzada - Reason: Man was I high on this kid, we all were and then BOOM Matt Brown derails that Hype train. I thought he'd beat Brown not easily but I thought he'd beat and him look good doing it, not even close. It was a good fight and Mein was landing some nice shots, some were hurting Brown but for the most part he had nothing for him. He was getting beat up and I think he was a little surprised and unprepared for Brown's aggressiveness I certainly was. I'd like to see him get a full training camp in for his next fight, he only had 3-4 weeks to prepare for Brown I think hes much better when hes gone through a full Camp. I'd like to see him fight Siyar Bahadurzada next. I think thats a great fight for him, it would be very exciting and it makes a lot of sense. I hope that fight gets booked. Mein could also fight Mick Swick or Bobby Voelker.
Mendes should fight The Winner of Swanson vs Siver - Reason: Chad Mendes is the Second best Featherweight on the Planet, his next fight should be a Title shot but The Winner of Ricardo Lamas vs Chan Sung Jung is getting it first. Mendes absolutely ran through Darren Elkins, just destroyed him, it was very impressive. Hes won three in a row and I think the total time of all of those wins is around 4 minutes which is crazy. Hes ready for another title but he'll have to take another fight before he gets it, so I think his next fight should be a #1 Contender fight against The Winner of Cub Swanson vs Dennis Siver. It makes perfect sense and it would be a fantastic fight. This fight should happen and I hope it does. Mendes could also fight Clay Guida.
Elkins should fight Koch - Reason: Elkins got crushed by Mendes but it was against one of the top guys in the divison so he won't fall that far down the ranks, I'd like to see him fight Erik Koch next. They both are coming off loses to top guys and I think this fight makes a lot of sense. I hope it gets booked. Elkins could also fight Dustin Poirier or Hatsu Hioki.
Carmont should fight Tavares - Reason: Carmont has won two controversial decisions in a row now, I think he lost both of those fights but his winning streak continues and he needs an opponent so I think he should fight Brad Tavares next. Carmont is talented but he just hasn't looked good in his last two fights, He'll need to if hes going to beat Tavares, I really like this fight and I hope it gets booked. Carmont could also fight Yoel Romero or The Winner of Camozzi vs Natal.
Larkin should fight The Loser of Bisping vs Belcher - Reason: Larkin looked good in that fight, it was close but I thought he did enough to win. I expect him to get a good opponent next because he basically won the fight so I'd like to see him fight the Loser of Bisping vs Belcher. Larkin is an exciting fighter, really good striker and it seems hes really been working on his TDD. A fight against the Loser of Bisping vs Belcher would be awesome. I really like this fight and I hope it gets booked. Larkin could also fight Uriah Hall or Stanislav Nedkov.
Jury should fight Varner - Reason: Jury looked awesome, I was expecting him to come out and submit Nijem quick but instead he knocked his friggin head off. Amazing knockout, Nijem was out before he hit the mat. Jury is getting better and better and I can't wait to see him fight again. For his next fight I'd like to see him fight Jamie Varner. I think that fight makes sense and its a good step up in competition for Jury. I hope it happens. Jury could also fight Nate Diaz or Diego Sanchez.
Nijem should fight Johnson - Reason: Nijem got caught, it happens. Hes a bit wild and I don't know if hes good enough to be in the UFC, he had a good streak going but now that hes lost and lost bad I think hes close to being cut, Hes a good fighter but hes not great, I'd like to see him fight Michael Johnson next. I think this fight makes sense, in my eyes they're both close to being cut. Also they're both TUF runner ups so that makes it a little more interesting. I hope this fight happens. Nijem could also fight Tim Means or Roger Bowling.
Benavidez should fight The Winner of Johnson vs Moraga - Reason: Benavidez is clearly the Second best fighter in the division and hes ready for another title shot. He destroyed Uuenoyama, it was a brutal 10 beating and it was really impressive. He shouldn't fight anyone else, he should just sit back and relax and wait to fight The Winner of Johnson vs Moraga. He'll have 4-5 months to prepare for this fight and it will be a great one. I expect it to be a rematch with Johnson I don't see Moraga beating him. Benavidez vs Johnson II will be excellent. Can't wait for that, hope this gets booked, it probably will.
Uyenoyama should fight McCall - Reason: Uyenoyama had nothing for Benavidez, he got beat down but it was by the second best guy in the division so I don't expect him to fall far down the ranks and I think he'll get another tough opponent next. I think he should fight Ian McCall next. McCall hasn't gotten a win in some time and I think they will match him up with Uyenoyama and I think it would be a good fight. It makes sense to me and I hope it happens. Uyenoyama could also fight Louis Gaudinot or Tim Elliott.
Masvidal should fight Njokuani - Reason: I thought Masvidal lost his fight with Tim Means but alright he won but it wasn't that impressive. I'd like to see him fight someone who was very impressive on the same card Anthony Njokuani. I think this would be a great fight and I think it makes a lot of sense. I hope this one gets booked. Masvidal could also fight Ross Pearson or The Winner of Khabilov vs Medeiros.
Means should fight Wiman - Reason: I think Means won that fight, I think he looked good, he was very active off his back and I want to see him fight the very tough Matt Wiman next. I really like this fight and to me it makes sense and I hope it gets booked. Means could also fight Ramsey Nijem or Roger Bowling.
Dillashaw should fight Mizugaki - Reason: Dillashaw has been looking amazing since he came off of TUF, yes he lost in the Finale but ever since then hes been looking like a killer. Duane Ludwig has really made these guys into absolute monsters, not only are they all strong, fast and great wrestlers but now they're all real good strikers. Team Alpha Male is full of beasts. Dillashaw came out and shocked me I thought he'd take Viana down and keep him there but he was fine just keeping it standing and trading with him. He hurt Viana real bad with a headkick and just swarmed on him. It was a great win and I think its time for a top 8-10 opponent. I'd like to see him fight Takeya Mizugaki next. It would be a great fight and it makes perfect sense, I hope it happens. Dillashaw could also fight Brad Pickett or Scott Jorgensen.
Viana should fight The Loser of Bedford vs Caraway - Reason: Viana got beat but hes still a very talented fighter and I expect him to come back better than ever. I'd like to see him fight The Loser of Bedford vs Caraway never. I think it makes a lot of sense I have them all ranked in the same area and I think it would be a very fun fight. I hope it happens. Viana could also fight Mike Easton or Ivan Menjivar.
Njokuani should fight Masvidal - Reason: Njokuani looked great, he knocked Bowling out with a perfect left hook, it was awesome. I like Njokuani a lot and I want to see him mess Jorge Masvidal up next. I don't like him and I want to see Njokuani win two in a row so I want to see that fight. I hope it happens and I think it should. Njokuani could also fight Ross Pearson or Diego Sanchez.
Bowling should fight Couture - Reason: Bowling's a Strikeforce guy who just got knocked out, I'd like to see him fight another Strikeforce who also just got knocked out, Ryan Couture. I think this fight makes sense and I hope it gets booked. Bowling could also fight Ramsey Nijem or Tim Means.
Romero should fight Watson - Reason: Talk about a debut, one of the best I've seen. I've got high hopes for this guy, Olympic wrestler, super athletic, explosive and he has a ton of power in his strikes. I can't wait to see this guy again. I'd like to see him fight Tom Watson next. I think that'd be a great fight, I'd love it and it makes sense. I hope it happens. Romero could also fight Francis Carmont or The Winner of Natal vs Camozzi.
Starks should fight Smith - Reason: Starks will probably be cut but if he isn't I'd like to see him fight Gilbert Smith. I think thats a winnable fight for him and it makes sense. Hope to see that get booked. Starks could also fight Jimmy Quinlan or Collin Hart.
