Here is another Who Should Fight Who.

Johnson should fight The Winner of Benavidez vs Formiga - Reason: Mighty Mouse looked awesome. He dominated the fight from the beginning of the fight until he finished it, he did get his nose busted at one point but other than that it was complete domination. Very impressive performance, he was minutes away from winning a decision but decided to go for the finish and finish it he did with a very nice armbar. I believe that was only the third time in UFC history that a fight ended in the Fifth round. There aren't really any clear contenders right now in the Flyweight division so I think there is only one fight for Mighty Mouse right now. I think he should fight The Winner of Benavidez vs Formiga. The Winner of this fight will be the #1 contender in my eyes and I hope they get the next shot at the champ. I'm expecting Joseph Benavidez to win this fight and get his rematch with the champ, their first fight was very close and I can't wait to see the rematch. I hope that fight is booked for early 2014.

Moraga should fight Santos - Reason: Moraga just got outclassed, he was fighting one of the best fighters in the world P4P and he did pretty well. He actually hurt the champ at one point, landed a solid shot breaking Johnson's nose but he really couldn't deal with the speed and wrestling of the champ. I think he'll learn a lot from this loss and I expect him to only get better. For his next fight I'd like to see him face Iliarde Santos. I like this fight, it makes sense and it would be a very fun fight. I originally wanted to see Moraga fight John Dodson next but Dodson is set to fight Darrell Montague next so thats not going to happen. So I hope the Santos fight happens. Moraga could also fight Darren Uyenoyama or Jose Maria Tome.

MacDonald should fight Saffiedine - Reason: MacDonald did exactly what I thought he would, he stayed on the outside and picked Ellenberger apart for 15 minutes. Some would say that he played it safe but a win is a win. For his next fight I'd like to see him fight someone ranked below him once again, his last performance wasn't very impressive and I think he should be built back up by fighting a lower ranked guy. Tarec Saffiedine makes a lot of sense to me, that fight just really stands out to me. It would be a very interesting fight and The Winner would be that much closer to a title shot. I like this fight and I hope it happens. MacDonald could also fight Robbie Lawler or The Winner of Condit vs Kampmann.

Ellenberger should fight Koscheck - Reason: Ellenberger didn't look good at all in that fight, he didn't really do much at all. I think his stock has fallen a bit and I think he should fight someone who also lost their last fight but has some name power. Josh Koscheck, these two were already supposed to fight each other but Koscheck pulled out because of an injury and I think now is the perfect time for this fight to happen. It would be a great fight and I hope it happens. Ellenberger could also fight Mike Pierce or Rick Story.

Lawler should fight Diaz - Reason: Lawler looked amazing in that fight, he was much faster than Voelker and his kicks looked great. His striking game is evolving and I believe Lawler is the best hes ever been right now. That was a very impressive performance and I imagine that hes not very far from a title shot, I'd say hes 2-3 wins away right now. I'd like to see him fight Nick Diaz next. This would be a rematch, these two fought almost ten years ago back at UFC 47. Diaz won that fight by Knockout and I know Lawler would like to redeem himself. I think both Diaz and Lawler would be interested in this fight and now is the perfect time for it to happen. It would be a great fight and I really hope it gets booked. Lawler could also fight Rory MacDonald or The Winner of Brown vs Pyle.

Voelker should fight Bahadurzada - Reason: Voelker took the Lawler fight on short notice, he did the UFC a solid so I don't think he has to worry about being cut anytime soon. Hes as tough as they come but Lawler is just an animal and I don't think any Welterweight in the world could have beaten Robbie on that night. For his next fight I want to see him face another striker, I think a fight against Siyar Bahadurzada makes sense. I like this fight and I think it would be an all out slugfest. I really hope this fight happens. Voelker could also fight Mike Swick or Paulo Thiago.

Carmouche should fight Davis - Reason: Carmouche looked good in that fight, she dominated and battered Andrade with some solid ground and pound. I don't think shes as close to another title shot as she does but shes not that far off. For her next fight I'd like to see her face Alexis Davis. They're both coming off wins, I think it makes sense and it will push the winner that much closer to a title shot. I like this fight and I hope it happens. Carmouche could also fight Sarah Kaufman or Germaine de Randamie

Andrade should fight Kedzie - Reason: Andrade's tough and I expect her to get another fight in the UFC. It didn't go her way against Carmouche but she'll be back. For her next fight I'd like to see her face Julie Kedzie. They both lost on the same card and the division is still growing so there aren't many options right now so I think this fight makes sense. I like it and I hope it gets booked. Andrade could also fight Rosi Sexton.

Masvidal should fight Khabilov - Reason: I don't like Masvidal I've said this before and I'll say it forever, the dude just rubs me the wrong way. So I was very excited when Chiesa knocked him down in the first round but Masvidal recovered well. Next round Masvidal turned the fight around and he ended up submitting Chiesa right before the bell. It was a good performance and I would like to see him get a step up in competition next and thats whats happening. He'll be fighting Rustam Khabilov next. I love this fight and I think its the right fight for both guys right now. Should be good. I hope Khabilov slams Masvidal into a coma, alright maybe not a coma but I hope he knocks him out.

Chiesa should fight Wiman - Reason: Chiesa looked good early in that fight but Masvidal proved to be just too much for him. He'll learn from this loss and I expect him to come back and look great in his next fight. I'd like to see Chiesa fight Matt Wiman next. I think this fight makes sense and it would be a good one. I like this fight a lot and I hope it happens. Chiesa could also fight Sam Stout or Thiago Tavares.

Castillo should fight Green - Reason: Castillo looked alright in that fight, it was close but I thought he did enough to get the W. I want to see him fight the guy he was supposed to fight at UFC on FOX 8 and thats Bobby Green. I really liked this fight when it was originally booked and I still want to see it so I hope it gets booked again. I think it would be a very good fight. Castillo could also fight Evan Dunham or Edson Barboza.

Means has been released from the UFC. I don't think he should have been. I do think he'll be back in the UFC very soon. I'd say a few wins and he'll be back.

Guillard should fight Pearson - Reason: Guillard looked great, I was very impressed. Hes a phenomenal talent and I hope he can get a good streak going and finally get a title shot. He'll be fighting Ross Pearson next, I like this fight, it makes sense and its going to be a great fight. So I can't wait.

Danzig should fight Edwards - Reason: Danzig lost and he lost bad but he was in there against one of the scariest guys in the division so I'm not going to bash him. I hope he doesn't get cut, I think he can still win in the UFC and there are a bunch of guys for him to fight still. A lot of guys in my opinion that are on the same level as him. One of which is Yves Edwards and I want to see Danzig fight him next. I don't know how these two haven't fought yet, it feels like they have but I want to see it and I want to see it happen now. I hope this fight gets booked. Danzig could also fight The Loser of Nijem vs Vick or Kazuki Tokudome.

Cruickshank should fight Krause - Reason: It was a close fight but I thought Cruickshank did win it so I was happy with the decision. It was a decent performance, I wasn't blown away by it. For his next fight I'd like to see him face James Krause. I like this fight and I think it makes sense. I hope it happens. Cruickshank could also fight The Winner of Nijem vs Vick or Evan Dunham.

Edwards should fight Danzig - Reason: Edwards looked alright in that fight, it was close but I think the judges got it right. For his next fight I'd like to see him fight Mac Danzig. This fight feels right to me and I hope it gets booked. Edwards could also fight Thiago Tavares or Takanori Gomi.

Herman should fight Leites - Reason: What a fight. It was back and forth for 15 minutes, I loved every second of it. Hopefully they can do that again someday. Herman looked really good, I was very impressed. For his next fight I want to see him face a guy who has fought for a UFC belt Thales Leites. I think this fight makes sense and it would be a very interesting fight. I really hope this fight gets booked. Herman could also fight Andrew Craig or The Winner of Tavares vs McDaniel.

Smith should fight Leben - Reason: It was a great fight, I'm now a fan of Trevor Smith's and I'm sure a lot of other people are now. So a fight that makes sense right now to me ranking wise, stylistically and all that stuff would be Trevor Smith vs Chris Leben. I want to see this fight, I think its the perfect fight for both guys and I'm sure it would be a back and forth Slugfest. I hope this fight happens. Smith could also fight Chris Camozzior Nick Ring.

Randamie should fight Nunes - Reason: Randamie looked very sharp in her fight with Kedzie. She dominated in the clinch the entire fight, shes a tall lanky chick. I think shes going to be getting her hand raised a lot in the Octagon. For her next fight I'd like to see her face Amanda Nunes. This fight makes sense to me and I hope it happens. Randamie could also fight Liz Carmouche or Sarah Kaufman.

Kedzie should fight Andrade - Reason: It didn't go her way that night but shes a talented veteran and I expect her to bounce back in her next fight. I'd like to see her fight Jessica Andrade next. I think this fight makes sense and it would be a good one. I hope it happens. Kedzie could also fight Rosi Sexton.

Salas should fight Tuck - Reason: Salas looked good, he was quick, his strikes were crisp and his footwork was looking good. I still don't know what to think about Salas, that knockout loss to Means is still fresh in my mind. He looked good against Riley, I wonder how he'll look in his next fight. I want to see him fight Jon Tuck. I like this fight and I hope it happens. Salas could also fight Norman Parke or Takanori Gomi.

Aaron Riley has retired. He fought hard, he never stopped coming forward and it was a close fight in my opinion but He lost the decision and retired after the fight.

Meza should fight Easton - Reason: Meza looked good, I didn't expect him to win that fight. For his next fight I'd like to see him face Mike Easton. I like this fight, I think its a good rebound fight for Easton and its a big opportunity for Meza, a win over Easton would be huge for him. I hope this fight happens. Meza could also fight Bryan Caraway or The Winner of Menjivar vs Kid Yamamoto.

Albert should be cut - Reason: He has lost four fights in a row, granted they were against some pretty tough competition but he still lost four in a row and he should be cut.
