I took the time to put together a list of upcoming fights I thought are interesting and of name value. Obviously I did not include the lesser known names otherwise this list would be even more pointless.

I listed the bouts in order of appearance event-wise, soonest to latest. Looks like not much is happening in the higher weight classes aside from title fights and a possible contender match here and there. The middleweight division is exceptionally waste-landish, to no one's astonishment.

Personally, looking forward to seeing how Overeem bounces back and what kind of shape he'll be in. Haven't seen Vera in action since his re-surging performance against Shogun who knows how long ago. My prediction for Cain vs JDS is a lot more of how fight 2 went down.

LHW division...meh.

Rory vs Jakeberger should be fun as hell, I give a slight edge to Rory due to his lengthy limbs and raging bacne, but I wouldn't be shocked if Jake caught him with a sleep inducing blow.

Sanchez-Melendez looks phenomenal on paper, hope it lives up to my expectations.

Featherweight is quickly becoming my favorite division with lots of interesting match ups.

Only fight I care about below featherweight is Menjivar-Yamamoto, but who knows if Kid will ever put on an exciting fight again.
