Brian Stann vs Retirement. Stann has had a really nice career, not quite a legacy, but he has nothing left to prove. I think hes great as an analyst & could be even better doing it full-time. Maybe even go into politics & make a change for good and all that.
Stephen Struve vs Ben Rothwell. Struve broke his jaw in the Hunt fight, so I doubt he fights til fall-winter so this matchup is pointless to make, but I did it anyway!Mark Hunt vs Roy Nelson or Travis Browne, assuming one or both win their upcoming fights. Hunt should also be numero uno to step in for a BF/Reem/JDS if one were to fall out for any reason, God forbid.
Dieago Sanchez vs Joe Lauzon. Usually winners dont fight losers, but neither is in contention for the title & it would be fireworks. Both have ok striking with excellent scrambling/grappling.
Stun-Gun vs John Hathaway
Mizuto Hirota vs Dustin Porier
Yushin Okami vs Jacare Souza/Costa Phillipou winner. Okami has fought 3 times in 7 months, so waiting 2 months extra to see who he will be fighting later this year makes sense.
Hector Lombard vs Chopping block. Ge cut or plea to take a pay-cut. If he can somehow not get cut, Rockhold/Belfort loser or Bisping/Belcher loser.
