Upcoming lightweight fights:

Frankie Edgar vs. B.J. Penn @ UFC 118 - It seems that everyone but Penn himself thought the Hawaii'an won the first bout. Penn gets a chance at redemption in Boston.

Kenny Florian vs. Gray Maynard @ UFC 118 - While Edgar and Penn settle their controversy, Florian and Maynard will determine the next challenger in line for the belt. The loser should get the loser of the main event.

Kurt Pellegrino vs. George Sotiropoulos @ UFC 116 - This is still officially under "rumored" status, but I really like this fight. Pellegrino and Sotiropoulos are both guys who have had some growing pains in their careers, but have put it together in their last few fights. A win for Pellegrino erases his losses to Joe Stevenson and Nate Diaz. The winner probably gets someone like Tyson Griffin (assuming he beats Evan Dunham at UFC 115) or Sean Sherk for a shot at the title.

Joe Stevenson vs. Takanori Gomi @ UFC on Versus 2 - Stevenson may have been a better choice for Gomi's first foray into the UFC. "Daddy" doesn't have the length or ground acumen that stymied Gomi in his fight with Kenny Florian. Neither guy should be considered threats for the division's elite, but a win is necessary to stay relevant.

Tyson Griffin vs. Evan Dunham @ UFC 115 - Tough fight for both guys. This is a big step up for Dunham. Griffin risks losing to a guy whose skills outweigh his name recognition. In the event of a win, Griffin probably gets the victor of Pellgrino/Sotiropoulos in a title eliminator. Zuffa should take a slower approach with Dunham who would probably get the winner of Stevenson/Gomi.
