St. Pierre should fight Hendricks - Reason: This was a very close fight. I do not think it was a robbery. Watching it Live I scored it 48-47 GSP but after watching it again I now believe that the fight was a Draw. You could make a case for both GSP and Hendricks, it all comes down to that first round and how you scored it. Two of the judges gave that Round to GSP which won him the fight. I believe that round was even. The good news is there will be an immediate rematch. Its going to be huge and I'm really looking forward to it.

Hendricks should fight St. Pierre - Reason: I thought Hendricks did a very good job. I don't think he did enough to get the Win though. He wasn't aggressive enough, he should have tried to finish GSP when he had him hurt. He let GSP take that fifth round because he thought he was ahead on the scorecards. Never take a round off like Hendricks did. You'll regret it. All this 70% bullshit is really retarded. All I know is he better come out guns blazing and throw 100% in the rematch. Otherwise he'll be 0-2 in UFC Title fights. I do believe he will be more aggressive in the rematch and I think he'll knock GSP out and become the new Welterweight Champion.

Evans should fight Cormier - Reason: Rashad Evans looked fantastic in that fight. I'd say that was his best performance in years. I was very impressed. Chael Sonnen's really a Middleweight who fights at Light Heavyweight but dominating him the way Rashad did is still a big deal. I think Rashad could be fighting for the title again soon. I'd like to see him fight Daniel Cormier next. This fight makes sense and I think it'd be an excellent fight. I really hope this fight happens and I think it will. Evans could also fight The Winner of Shogun vs Te Huna or The Winner of Bader vs Perosh.

Sonnen should fight Silva - Reason: Chael Sonnen is still one of the best fighters in the world. He just ran into a bigger and stronger guy. He was doing alright in the early moments of the fight but once Rashad got on top of him it was all over. Sonnen just couldn't get Rashad off of him. Sonnen already has his next fight set up, he'll be fighting Wanderlei Silva at 185 lbs which is where he belongs. I think he's going to dominate Silva and I'm really looking forward to that.

Lawler should fight Shields - Reason: Robbie Lawler is one of my favorite fighters of all time. He just throws caution to the wind and goes all out whenever he gets the chance. He did that once again in Round three of this fight. He went after him and dropped him. Then he pounded on him for most of that round. That won him the fight. I was actually surprised when his name was called, I thought Rory Mac's top control in Rounds one and two was enough to win him the fight but I was extremely happy that Robbie got the nod. It was a great fight and I'm glad Robbie came out on top. I'd like to see Lawler fight Jake Shields next. This would be a rematch, they fought about four years ago, Shields submitted him in the first round. I know Lawler would love to get his revenge. Also Shields stated that he'd like to fight Robbie next so its perfect. I don't see any reason why this fight shouldn't happen. It makes sense and I think it'd be great. I also believe Lawler would knock him out in the rematch so I really hope this fight gets booked. Lawler could also fight The Winner of Condit vs Brown or The Winner of Ellenberger vs Saffiedine.

MacDonald should fight Maia - Reason: MacDonald looked decent even though he lost. He was able to control Lawler in all three rounds but he didn't do much once he was on top of him. He hasn't looked great in a while and I think he needs to really impress in his next fight. I'd like to see him face Demian Maia next. I like this fight a lot. It makes sense, I think it'll happen. MacDonald could also fight Martin Kampmann or Nick Diaz.

Woodley should fight Story - Reason: Woodley looked amazing. This was the best performance of his career. He knocked Koscheck into a different dimension. It was fucking brutal and awesome. He dominated the fight, had Kos hurt many times and finally put him away at the end of Round one. Hes gunning for a title shot and I'd say hes close. One or two wins away right now. I'd like to see him face Rick Story next. I like this fight a lot, it makes sense and I believe Story has shown some interest in this fight as well. I think it'd be a great fight. Woodley could also fight Dong Hyun Kim or The Winner of Condit vs Brown.

3_medium

Koscheck should fight Marquardt - Reason: Koscheck didn't look terrible but he did get rocked several times before finally getting knocked out. He did crack Woodley with a really good punch early but after that it was all Woodley. I think Koscheck is still one of the best in the division. I think he can still compete with the best in the world and I hope he doesn't retire. I don't believe he will and when he does fight again I'd like to see him face Nate Marquardt. I like this fight a lot. It'd be a great fight and I think its the perfect fight for both guys. Koscheck could also fight Martin Kampmann or Mike Pyle.

Bagautinov should fight Lineker - Reason: I thought this was a close fight but I did think Bagautinov did enough to get the win. So I was happy when I heard his name announced even though I wanted and picked Elliott to win it. The judges got it right. It was a very exciting fight and Bagautinov's the real deal. I'd like to see him face John Lineker next. That fight makes sense and I think it'd be a great fight. Bagautinov could also fight Dustin Ortiz or The Winner of Moraga vs Uyenoyama.

3_medium

Elliott should fight Formiga - Reason: Elliott looked good even though he lost. It was a fun fight and I expect him to get a top guy coming off a loss next. I'd like to see him face Jussier Formiga next. I like this fight a lot, it makes sense and I think it'd be a good one. Elliott could also fight Darrell Montague or Jose Maria Tome.

Cerrone should fight Martins - Reason: Cerrone looked awesome. I thought Dunham would outpoint him and win a decision but he got fucked up. Cerrone was out to make a point and boy did he make it. He hurt Dunham badly on the feet and later submitted him with a slick triangle. Cowboy Cerrone is still one of the best Lightweights in the world and I was absolutely blown away by his performance. Cerrone will be fighting Adriano Martins next. I like this fight, I think it'll be exciting but I was surprised that Cowboy took it. Its a very risky fight, not many people know of Martins and hes very dangerous. I respect Cerrone for taking it though, should be a good one.

3_medium

Dunham should fight Sanchez - Reason: Dunham didn't look at all but he'll bounce back. He's gotten destroyed and come back better than ever before so I expect him to do it again. I'd like to see him face Diego Sanchez next. I love this fight. It makes sense and I think it'd be a classic. Dunham could also fight Jamie Varner or Matt Wiman.

Leites should fight Romero - Reason: Leites dominated but it was pretty fucking boring. Hes going to have to fix that, I believe that is why he was cut during his first stint in the UFC because he was boring. I'd like to see Leites face Yoel Romero next. I like this fight a lot. Leites could also fight Tom Lawlor or The Winner of Larkin vs Tavares.

Herman should fight Markes - Reason: Herman didn't look good. I expect him to look a lot better in his next fight. I'd like to see him fight Ronny Markes next. I like this fight, it makes sense and I think it'd be great. Herman could also fight C.B. Dollaway or Rafael Natal.

Story should fight Woodley - Reason: Story looked great. He dominated, he picked Ebersole apart for 15 minutes and just outclassed him. I still believe Story's one of the best Welterweights in the world. I'd like to see him face Tyron Woodley next. He has shown some interest in this fight and I love it. It'd be a great fight, it makes sense and it'd launch the winner into the top 10. Story could also fight Hector Lombard or Mike Pierce.

2_medium_medium

Ebersole should fight Thiago - Reason: Ebersole didn't look good. He was fighting a very tough guy so I think hes safe from being cut. He said he was going to drop down to 155 lbs earlier this year. I hope he does eventually drop down, I don't think he will before he fights again though so I'd like to see him face Paulo Thiago next. I like this fight a lot. Ebersole could also fight Anthony Lapsley or TJ Waldburger.

Perez should fight Rivera - Reason: Perez dominated, he looked great. He had Figueroa hurt multiple times in that fight. I want to see Perez fight Francisco Rivera next. I've wanted to see this fight for a while now and I believe this would be a FOTY candidate. Perez could also fight Wilson Reis or Iuri Alcantara.

2_medium

Figueroa should be cut. I like Edwin Figueroa, I think hes an exciting fighter but hes lost three fights in a row. Also his UFC record is 2-4, not very good. I think he should be cut, fight in some smaller shows, win some fights and work his way back up to the UFC.

Ufc167-3_medium

High should fight Amagov - Reason: Jason High looked great. He dominated. A couple days after the fight he said he was going to be dropping down to 155 lbs but then it was announced that he'd be fighting Adlan Amagov next. So I guess he'll be sticking around at 170 lbs for at least one more fight. I think this will be an exciting fight, I don't think its a great fight for High. He has been knocked out and Amagov has a ton of power and very good takedown defense so he could be in trouble. Should be a great fight either way.

1_medium

Lapsley should fight Alcantara - Reason: Lapsley didn't look good. He got dominated, one positive is he didn't get finished. I'd like to see Lapsley fight Ildemar Alcantara next. I like this fight. Lapsley could also fight Brian Ebersole or TJ Waldburger.

01-will-campuzano_medium

Pettis should fight Harris - Reason: Sergio Pettis is the real fucking deal. He looked great and his opponent Campuzano is very talented so this was a big win for him. I expect Pettis to drop down to 125 lbs for his next fight. He has fought at both 125 and 135 lbs in his career but I believe he is much better off at 125 lbs. I'd like to see him face Phil Harris next. I think this fight makes sense and I think it'll happen. Pettis could also fight Louis Gaudinot or Dustin Ortiz.

0_medium

Campuzano should fight Gashimov - Reason: Campuzano looked good even though he didn't get the win. It was an exciting fight and he was fighting one of the top prospects in the sport. Like Pettis I believe Campuzano will be dropping back down to 125 lbs. Its where he belongs. I'd like to see him face Azamat Gashimov. I like this fight a lot and I think it'd be a very fun fight. Campuzano could also fight Darrell Montague or Jose Maria Tome.

Hi-res-7871622_display_image_medium

Villante should fight Maldonado - Reason: Villante looked terrible in the first round but he came out and knocked Donovan out in the second round. It was great. I'd like to see Villante fight Fabio Maldonado next. This fight makes a lot of sense to me and I think it'll happen. Villante could also fight Francimar Barroso or Cyrille Diabate.

2_medium

Donovan will probably be cut. I'm not going to say that he should be cut, he has only lost two fights in a row however both losses were by knockout and thats why I think he'll be cut.

Alright, leave your comments and Rec if you really liked it. Let me know which fights you like and which fights you want to see happen.
