Here is another Who Should Fight Who.
Belfort should fight The Winner of Weidman vs Silva - Reason: I hate this guy. I do not like Vitor Belfort but he is a scary dude. Hes very talented and when you're that talented and you go on TRT this is what you can get. Vitor should be the poster boy for TRT use in MMA. Its the perfect storm of talent, athleticism, experience and testosterone. Vitor just knocked out Dan Henderson who has never been knocked out. Thats extremely impressive. This roided out monster deserves a title shot and it looks like hes going to get it. I'm happy about that. I hate the guy but he has been on a tear since losing to Jon Jones. I can't wait to see him fight for the belt. I just hope it happens outside of Brazil.
Henderson should fight Munoz - Reason: I love Dan Henderson, love the guy. Hes one of my favorite fighters of all time and I would be honest if I thought it was time for him to retire. I don't believe its time. He can still compete with guys in the UFC, even top 10 guys. I just think he ran into a juiced up bull who would've beaten anyone on that night. Sure he has lost three in a row but two of those losses were extremely close split decision losses that could have gone either way. This was his first real loss in a while in my eyes. I want to see him sign a new deal with the UFC, I think he will and I'd like to see him fight at 185 lbs next. He should drop back down. He looked very small in there with Vitor. Hes a Middleweight and I hope he drops back down. I think Dana and crew feel the same way so I hope they get him to do it. If he does drop back down to MW I'd like to see him face Mark Munoz next. I really like this fight and it makes sense to me. I think it'd be a great fight. Henderson could also fight Luke Rockhold or Costa Philippou.
Ferreira should fight Barnatt - Reason: Ferreira looked good. He controlled Sarafian for most of the fight. I was actually surprised that it was a split decision. I thought he dominated. I'd like to see Ferreira fight Luke Barnatt next. I like this fight a lot, it makes sense and I think it'd be a very fun fight. Ferreira could also fight Derek Brunson or Omari Akhmedov.
Sarafian should fight Head - Reason: Sarafian landed some nice shots during the fight but I thought Ferreira controlled him for most of the fight. I really think Sarafian should drop down to 170 lbs. Hes a very small Middleweight and thats the reason hes losing these fights. The bigger guys are able to control him and muscle him around. He should be a Welterweight and at that weight I think he could make some serious waves. I hope he makes the drop and if he does I think he should fight James Head next. This fight makes sense to me and I think its a great fight for Sarafian. I also believe it'd be an entertaining fight. Sarafian could also fight Pascal Krauss or TJ Waldburger.
Cavalcante should fight St. Preux - Reason: Cavalcante AKA Feijao looked incredible. He was in great shape which I was happy to see and he just went after Pokrajac. He really hurt him in the clinch, he was throwing vicious knees and he finished him off with some powerful punches. Feijao's in a weird spot. Hes in that lower top 10-15 area and most of the guys from #1 to #15 have fights booked already. So he might have to sit back and wait for the winner of ones of those fights. There are a few guys available right now and one of them is Ovince St. Preux. I'd like to see him face Feijao next. I think that would be a great fight. It makes sense so hopefully it gets booked. Cavalcante could also fight The Winner of Shogun vs Te Huna or The Winner of Bader vs Perosh.
Pokrajac should be cut. He has lost four fights in a row, technically hes only lost three out of his last four but really hes lost four in a row. Thats not good. He needs to be cut. He is exciting, he has that going for him so there is a chance they could keep him on the roster like they did with Dan Hardy but I think they're going to cut him and I'm fine with that. He hasn't won a fight since May 2012. Let him go pick up some wins in some of the smaller shows, let him work his way back up.
Thatch should fight Nelson - Reason: Brandon Thatch is an animal. The guy's had two fights in the UFC and he has two ultra impressive finishes. Hes for real and hes going to be a contender. I love watching him fight, I can't wait to see him again. I'd really like to see Thatch fight another bright prospect, Gunnar Nelson. I love this fight, it makes sense and it would be a phenomenal fight. It just could not suck. Thatch could also fight John Hathaway or Adlan Amagov.
Thiago should fight Alcantara - Reason: Paulo Thiago's a solid UFC vet, he got demolished but he will be back. For his next fight I'd like to see him face Ildemar Alcantara. I like this fight a lot, it makes sense and I think its a good fight. Thiago could also fight Pascal Krauss or TJ Waldburger.
LaFlare should fight McGee - Reason: LaFlare looked good. He dominated the fight. I thought he looked great. Hes going to be fighting Court McGee next, hes replacing the injured Kelvin Gastelum. I think its going to be a great fight and I'm looking forward to it.
Ponzinibbio should fight Mein - Reason: Ponzinibbio looked alright. He had his moments but for the most part he was dominated. I expect Ponzinibbio to get back in there soon. I'd like to see him face Jordan Mein next. This fight makes sense to me and I like it a lot. Ponzinibbio could also fight Mike Pyle or Erick Silva.
Stephens should fight Elkins - Reason: Jeremy Stephens looks amazing at 145 lbs. I'm very excited to see what he can do at the new weight. Hes 2-0 at FW and hes going to be fighting Darren Elkins next. This is a big step up in competition and if he beats Elkins he'll be in the top 10 and much closer to a title shot. I always enjoy watching Stephens fight, he might be a piece of garbage who beats civilians up with his friends but hes a lot of fun to watch. I'm pumped for the Elkins fight. Its a big test for Stephens.
Jason should fight Arantes - Reason: I hate Rony Jason, I absolutely hate the guy. So you can imagine how I felt when he got knocked out by Jeremy Stephens. I was hysterical. It was awesome. One of my favorite knockouts of all time. Then after Jason came to and was in the back he punches a wall and slices his arm pretty bad. The man's a fool. However he is very talented and he lives for this so I expect him to look great in his next fight. I'd like to see him face Felipe Arantes next. I like this fight a lot, it makes sense and it would be a fantastic fight. Jason could also fight Max Holloway or Steven Siler.
Sicilia should fight Miller - Reason: Sicilia looked great. I was very happy with his performance. I'm a fan of his and he absolutely killed it. Hes got a ton of power for 145 lbs. He can knock out anyone in the division. I wanted to see him fight Cole Miller next and thats exactly who he'll be facing. I was thrilled when I read it on Twitter or where ever I saw it. This fights going to be great, its perfect matchmaking in my opinion by Joe Silva. Can't wait for this fight.
Pepey should be cut. Pepey has lost three out of his last four and that one win was a split decision that I thought he lost. So he should be cut. Let him go fight in the smaller shows in Brazil and work his way back up.
Akhmedov should fight Neto - Reason: Omari Akhmedov is a warrior. What a great fight this was. It only lasted one round but what a round it was. Akhmedov was hurt over and over and then when Perpetuo let his guard down and charged in on Akhmedov, he got laid out. It was amazing. It was a tremendous fight and a great come from behind win for Akhmedov. I'd like to see Akhmedov fight Antonio Braga Neto next. I like this fight a lot, it makes sense and I think it'll be a lot of fun. Akhmedov could also fight Derek Brunson or Cezar Ferreira.
Perpetuo should fight Craig - Reason: Perpetuo had Akhmedov hurt several times in that fight but couldn't put him away. Even though he got knocked out, he did look good at times and it was a very entertaining fight so he'll definitely get another fight in the UFC. I'd like to see him face Andrew Craig next. I like this fight, it makes sense and I think it'd be a war. Perpetuo could also fight Alessio Sakara or Chris Camozzi.
Tavares should fight Medeiros - Reason: Thiago Tavares looked great. I was very impressed. He dominated and got the submission victory. He said after the fight that hes considering dropping down to 145 lbs. I don't like that idea at all. I think he should stay at 155 lbs. He already has a suspect chin at Lightweight and cutting more weight wouldn't help matters. I'd like to see him fight Yancy Medeiros next. I really like this fight and it makes sense. It'd be a great test for Medeiros and its a good fight stylistically for Tavares. Tavares could also fight Norman Parke orAl Iaquinta.
Salas should fight Tuck - Reason: Justin Salas didn't look good. This is the second time in his three fight career where he looked like absolute crap. I'd say there is a chance he could be cut. I don't think he will be though. I'd like to see him fight Jon Tuck next. I like this fight a lot and it makes sense to me. Salas could also fight Yves Edwards or Renee Forte.
Martins should fight Ferguson - Reason: Martins looked great. I was very impressed. Cruickshank is a tough fight for anyone and he dominated him. I'd like to see Martins fight Tony Ferguson next. I think this would be a great fight. Martins could also fight Mike Chiesa or Rustam Khabilov.
Cruickshank should fight Krause - Reason: Cruickshank didn't look terrible but he didn't look good. Martins was a bad match up for him. I expect him to look very good in his next fight. I'd like to see him face James Krause next. I like this fight a lot. I think it'd be the Fight of the night. Cruickshank could also fight Jorge Masvidal or Piotr Hallmann.
Ortiz should fight Montague - Reason: Dustin Ortiz had a good UFC debut. He dominated the fight, the end of the fight was BS though. The fight was stopped when it shouldn't have been. The punches that Ortiz was landing weren't hurting Tome and a lot of them were to the back of the head. I think the fight should have continued, Tome was defending himself. I actually was hoping that they were Disqualifying Ortiz. The majority of the punches in that last flurry were to the back of the head. He wasn't though and it was a successful debut. I want to see Ortiz get a very tough opponent next. I'd like to see him face Darrell Montague next. I like this fight, it makes sense and I want to see Ortiz lose. Ortiz could also fight The Winner of Elliott vs Bagautinov or Jussier Formiga.
Tome should fight Harris - Reason: Tome didn't look great in that fight but I think he'll get another shot in the UFC. Especially because of the way the fight ended. I'd like to see Tome fight Phil Harris next. I like this fight, it makes sense and I think it'd be great. Tome could also fight Louis Gaudinot or Iliarde Santos.
