Updated UFC rankings and upcoming matches

 

Here are my updated UFC rankings.  Let me know what you think. 

 

Heavyweight: No HW matches at UFC 129, and while a few matches were announced nothing too big here.  The good news is that Cain seems on course to be back in October against the Brock/JDS winner.  Looking at the division I’d make the following match-ups.  Schaub v Nog, Russow v Rothwell, Madsen v Broughton.

LHW:  I think Phil Davis is in over his head against Rashad, but it is a very interesting fight.  Even if Davis pulls it off, I don’t think he would get the next title shot, because Rampage is likely going to be waiting to step into a title shot.  Machida could also be 1 good win away from a title shot, I’d like to see him up against Bader (assuming Bader beats Tito).  Some other fights I’d  like to see are Matyushenko v Gustafsson, and Bonnar v Diabate.

MW:  I’m pretty sure that Silva v GSP is on hold for now, but that is fine with good fights against Okami, and a potential rematch with Sonnen coming up.  First I think that Sonnen and Bisping will have a epic trash talk fest, that should result in a pretty good fight.  Mayhems arrival adds a little depth to the division, but I don’t see him being a guy who will ever challenge for the title.

WW:  GSP has convincing wins over the guys ranked 2-6, so count me in the camp that wants to see Nick Diaz fight GSP.  Nick hasn’t had a bad fight in a long time, and I think he would force GSP into a very entertaining fight.  So what is next for Jake Shields, I say the Alves/Story winner.  With Fitch out for around 6 months, I’d like to see Kos v BJ get made, Kos should be about ready to start training again after his eye injury back in December.  Nate Marquardt should be a force in the division but, we’ll have to see how the weight cut effects him.  Jake Ellenberger is the real deal, but he needs a top 10 fight, I’d like to see him against the Marquardt/Johnson winner.  Other good fights I’d make are Pyle v Patrick, Lytle v Thiago, MacDonald v Brenneman, and Hathaway v Rocha.

LW: Edgar v Maynard should be great, but when that is done the calls for Gilbert Melendez are going to start to get really loud.  I’m not sure when Sherk will be back in action, but there will be some good fights waiting for him 14 of the top 21 guys are fighting between now and 2 Jul, that means that a lot at the top of this division is going to get sorted out between now and the first week in Jul.  In the mean time I’d like to see Miller v Henderson, and Bocek v Pellegrino.

FW:  Just like LW, the top of this division has a lot of fights coming up between now and 2 July.  Aldo showed a little sign of being vulnerable, but now it sounds like it was due to illness, and a bad weight cut.  Chad Mendes looks like he is getting the next shot, and that should be a good fight.  Pablo Garza has 2 first round, fight night bonus winning stoppages in a row now, it will be interesting to see how they match him up next.  The Grispi v Roop winner would be a good fight for him.  I’d like to see Zhang v Phan also.

TBD

w/ Matt McCook

 

 

BW: Miguel Torres pretty much has a title shot and TUF coaching stint riding on his next fight with Demetrious Johnson.  I’m going to favor Urijah Faber over Cruz, but it should be a great fight, as Cruz has improved a lot since the first time they fought.
