Ufc-159-poster_medium

Here is another Who Should Fight Who.

Jones should fight Gustaffson - Reason: Jones dominated Sonnen, he beat him at his own game and hes one of the best fighters of all time. He destroyed Sonnen, I don't see anybody coming close to beating him besides Daniel Cormier and Anderson Silva but I don't see either of those fights happening next so I'd like to see Jones fight the guy that he wants to fight next and thats Alexander Gustaffson. Gustaffson could fight Lyoto Machida next but I think he'll get the title shot and Jones will get the fight that he wanted. It'll be a great fight, people have wanted to see it for a while now and I think it'll finally happen. Should be great, hope it gets booked. Jones could also fight Anderson Silva or Lyoto Machida.

Sonnen should fight Silva - Reason: Sonnen got outclassed, he was beaten by a better fighter and I think he'll get back in there as soon as possible most likely against Wanderlei Silva. I want him to fight Silva next and I'm pretty sure its gonna happen so I'm excited about that. They haven't liked each other for a while but the fight never made sense, but now it does and it looks like its going to happen. Should be fun. Sonnen could also fight Vitor Belfort if he loses to Luke Rockhold and Rich Franklin.

Bisping should fight Philippou - Reason: Bisping looked good, it wasn't an amazing performance but it was pretty good. He dominated Belcher, I'd like to see him get a top 5 opponent next. I originally wanted to see him fight Yushin Okami next but now that Costa Philippou is available I'd rather see him fight Bisping. I think that fight would be great and it would put the Winner in that top 3-5 area and right up there for a title shot. I really hope that fight happens, it makes a ton of sense. Bisping could also fight Yushin Okami or Hector Lombard.

Belcher should fight Larkin - Reason: Belcher looked slow and out of shape, he really couldn't land much on Bisping. I think he was injured coming into the fight, losing those ankle wraps probably didn't help. He got poked in the eye late in the fight and hes had eye problems in the past so that was a scary moment but luckily it wasn't serious. I'd like to see him get a Striker for his next fight, I think a fight against Lorenz Larkin would be awesome. That fight makes a lot of sense to me and I just love that fight. It would be a war and I hope it happens. Belcher could also fight The Loser of Belfort vs Rockhold or Stanislav Nedkov.

Nelson should fight Cormier - Reason: Nelson looked great, he knocked Kongo out early in Round 1 and it'll be interesting to see what he does next. Both him and DC have talked about fighting each other and since DC plans to stay at HW for now this fight will probably happen. I don't think its the best fight for Nelson, I think he'd lose but he brought it up and now it seems like its gonna happen. It should be fun. Nelson could also fight Travis Browne or Alistair Overeem.

Kongo has been cut. I like Kongo, I always have and I hope he gets back to winning in a different Organization, possibly one in The U.K. Kongo said he isn't cut but I'm going to assume he is, if he isn't though he could fight Ben Rothwell next.

Davis should fight Bader - Reason: Davis looked good, his striking has improved a lot and he just dominated. Davis is stuck at the lower half of the Top 10 right now, I'd like to see him fight a top 10 guy next, someone that he should have already fought Ryan Bader. Seriously, how have these two not fought yet? I love this fight and I hope it happens next. Davis could also fight The Winner of Feijao vs Silva or The Winner of Nogueira vs Shogun.

Magalhaes should fight St. Preux - Reason: Vinny Magalhaes is a world class grappler, one of the best in the world but his striking isn't the best and he tends to gas as the fight goes on and thats what happened. I'd really like to see him move up to Heavyweight, hes fought there in the past, hes been successful there and I think hes just better off fighting slower and less athletic guys. However I don't see him moving up right now so he needs an opponent at 205, I'd like to see it be Ovince St. Preux. I like this fight, I think its a good fight for both guys and I hope it happens. Magalhaes could also fight The Loser of Teixeira vs Te Huna or Matt Hamill

Healy should fight Melendez - Reason: Healy really shocked me, he did almost got finished at the end of Round 1 but after that he took over and just beat Miller up and choked him out. It was a great performance and the biggest win of his career, I'd like to see him fight the guy he was supposed to fight in Strikeforce Gilbert Melendez. I think that would be a great fight and I'd like to see it happen next. I also really want to see him fight Josh Thomson again, I think that would be another fantastic fight. So I'd like to see him fight Melendez next but if that doesn't happen I'd like to see him fight Josh Thomson or The Winner of Cerrone vs Noons.

Miller should fight Varner - Reason: Miller looked good at times during that fight, he had Healy hurt in the first round but Healy got saved by the bell, he got beat but he'll bounce right back. I'd like to see him fight Jamie Varner next. I think that would be a very fun fight and it makes a lot of sense. I hope that gets booked. Miller could also fight The Loser of Maynard vs Grant or Takanori Gomi.

Khabilov should fight Masvidal- Reason: Khabilov was looking good, he went to slam Medeiros but Medeiros stopped it but while doing that he dislocated his thumb and couldn't continue so Khabilov won by TKO. I'd like to see him fight Jorge Masvidal next. I think he should get a step up in competition and I like this fight. I hope it happens. Khabilov could also fight Diego Sanchez or Myles Jury.

Medeiros should fight Means - Reason: Medeiros was looking good up until he hurt his hand, I hope he heals up and returns soon. I'd like to see him fight Tim Means next. I think this fight makes sense and I hope it happens. Medeiros could also fight Ramsey Nijem or Roger Bowling.

St. Preux should fight Magalhaes - Reason: St. Preux looked good at times in his fight with Villante, I think his nerves got to him a little bit because he looked pretty tired out there. I know OSP is talented but that performance wasn't very impressive at all, so I expect him to get a very tough opponent next, I think he should fight Vinny Magalhaes next. I think this is a good fight and a winnable one for both guys, I hope it gets booked. St. Preux could also fight Brandon Vera or Jimi Manuwa.

Villante should fight Diabate - Reason: Villante got poked in the eye early in Round 3 and instead of getting a few seconds to clear his eye and regain his vision the referee stopped the fight and that cost Villante the fight. They went to the score cards and OSP won by Technical Decision, which is terrible because Villante had some momentum going into that third round, he could have won it but he lost it and now he needs an opponent. I'd like to see him fight Cyrille Diabate next. I think that'd be a good fight, I hope it happens. Villante could also fight The Loser of Feijao vs Silva or Ilir Latifi.

McMann should fight The Winner of Tate vs Carmouche - Reason: I really like McMann, I think she'll be champion by Mid 2014. She went out and dominated Gaff, put her in the crucifix and pounded her out. I think she should take a couple more fight before she fights for the belt, I'd like to see her fight The Winner of Tate vs Carmouche next. I think that'll be a great fight and a good fight for McMann. I hope it happens. McMann could also fight The Winner of Davis vs Sexton or The Winner of Kedzie vs de Randamie.

Gaff should fight The Loser of Sexton vs Davis - Reason: Gaff got beat by one of the best chicks in the game, no shame in that. I'd like to see her fight The Loser of Sexton vs Davis next. I think that would be a good fight and I think it makes sense. Gaff could also fight The Loser of Tate vs Carmouche or The Loser of Kedzie vs de Randamie.

Caraway should fight Perez - Reason: I was surprised by Caraway, I thought he would lose to Bedford but he didn't. It was a good win, I'd like to see Caraway fight the guy Bedford was supposed to fight Erik Perez. I think that would be a great fight and it makes a lot of sense. I hope it happens. Caraway could also fight Francisco Rivera or Scott Jorgensen.

Bedford should fight Viana - Reason: Bedford didn't look that good but he'll be back and I'd like to see his next fight be against Hugo Viana. Both are got finished in their last fights and I think it makes sense. It would be a great fight, thats for sure. I hope it happens. Bedford could also fight Mike Easton or Chico Camus.

McKenzie should fight Ogle - Reason: Homeless boy shocked the hell out of me, I figured he'd get beat up for 3 rounds or get knocked out but neither of those happened, he dominated Garcia. It was a good performance from a bad fighter, I'm not going to say hes getting better because Garcia is hot garbage but if he is we'll find out soon enough. I'd like to see him fight another guy who I think sucks Andy Ogle. I'm sure this will be a sloppy mess of a fight but screw it lets see it. Two terrible fighters going at it, what more could you ask for? I really do like this fight though, I think it makes sense. I hope it happens. McKenzie could also fight Bart Palaszewski or Sam Sicilia.

Garcia should fight Phan- Reason: Cut him, Cut him, Cut him, Please cut this guy already! Why isn't he cut yet? Seriously, what the hell? Garcia is terrible and hes lost 5 in a row, whats the hold up? He should be cut but for some reason he probably won't be so in that case I'd like to see him fight Nam Phan next. They've already fought twice, Garcia took the first, Phan took the second so lets see a third. Both of those fights won the FOTN so I doubt a third fight would suck. I hope it happens if Garcia isn't cut. Garcia could also fight Justin Lawrence or Bart Palaszewski.

Siler should fight Brandao - Reason: Siler looked really good, I was impressed with him. I'd like to see him fight Diego Brandao next. I think that would be a fantastic fight and I hope it happens. Siler could also fight Rani Yahya or Conor McGregor.

Holobaugh should fight Grice - Reason: Holobaugh didn't look great but I expect him to be back and I'd like to see him fight Matt Grice next. I think that would be a great fight and it makes sense. I hope it happens. Holobaugh could also fight Marcus Brimage or Sam Sicilia.
