Matches to Make After UFC 142
Edson Barboza vs. Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone- One Word….FireWorks. The best Kickboxer in the division against the best Thai Boxer in the division. I know Joe Silva doesn’t like to match up guys coming off a win against guy’s coming of a loss, but I feel Dana and him wont hold the Diaz loss against him for stepping up for them. I could see this fight going down at UFC 145 or UFC 146.
Erick Silva vs Dan Hardy- Im pretty confident the UFC (There is no commission in Brasil) will overturn Silva’s loss to a No Contest. I was impressed to say the least but I feel they should bring him along slowly, hopefully he is working on his TDD because the top of the WW division is stacked with wrestlers. A match-up with Hardy is sure to not disappoint!!
Rousimar Palhares vs Demian Maia/Michael Bisping loser- A potential grappling superfight between the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Wizard and Leg-Lock Expert would be incredible. And a lot of fans would pay “Paul Harris” to crank on bisping extremities past the Ref’s Stoppage!
Jose Aldo vs Chan Sung Jung- Get em while their Hot!! Chan Sung Jung has a Big Fanbase which helps and is coming off a 7 sec KO of Former title contender Mark Hominick so he is probably the hottest product right now. While he is only on a 2 fight win streak both of his wins have been very impressive the aforementioned smashing of Hominick and the Beautiful Twister submission over Leonard Garcia!
Anthony Johnson vs a Chocolate Cake
