Who Should Fight Who? UFC 162 Winners & Losers

Ufc-162-poster_medium

Here is another Who Should Fight Who.

Weidman should fight Silva - Reason: Well nobody was expecting that. Weidman did a great job, he got Silva down in the first round and landed some nice strikes both on the ground and on the feet but at the end of the first round it appeared that Silva was getting into Weidman's head. Second round Silva kept on clowning around and was fighting like a fool, Weidman stayed calm, threw some punches and knocked out the greatest fighter of all time. It was a great performance in what was an insane fight, I can't wait for the rematch. Its going to be epic.

Silva should fight Weidman - Reason: What can I say, Silva blew it. He started the fight off looking good, once he got back up to his feet he was landing some nice strikes but then he started to drop his hands and showboat. Thats why he lost, if he didn't drop his hands and fight like a fool he'd still be the champ. I think he'll definitely be focused in the rematch and he won't mess around. If he doesn't mess around he'll get his belt back. Can't wait for the rematch.

Edgar should fight Swanson - Reason: Edgar looked great, his striking was on point and it was a very good performance. For his next fight I'd like to see him fight Cub Swanson, both are in the Top 5 and are close to a title shot, this fight makes a ton of sense. It would be a great fight and I really hope it gets booked. Edgar could also fight Nik Lentz or The Winner of Poirier vs Koch.

Oliveira should fight Brimage - Reason: Oliveira was outclassed in his fight with Edgar but hes still a great young talent and I expect him to bounce back in his next fight. I think that fight should be against Marcus Brimage, makes sense to me and I hope it happens. Oliveira could also fight Dennis Siver or Hacran Dias.

Kennedy should fight Le - Reason: Tim Kennedy, hes a solid fighter but hes not very exciting, not at all. It looks like hes not going to be fighting Vitor Belfort which I'm very happy about because I felt that it was a dumb fight. I thought we were finally going to see Tim Kennedy vs Brian Stann but then Stann retired so now thats off the table. So for Kennedy's next fight I'd like to see him fight another Strikeforce guy, Cung Le. I think that'd be a great fight and the Winner of that fight would move into the Top 10. I hope that fight gets booked. Kennedy could also fight Lorenz Larkin or Rich Franklin.

Gracie should fight Palhares - Reason: Gracie is a great Jiu Jitsu artist but he wasn't able to really do anything against Tim Kennedy who is also a solid grappler. For his next fight I'd like to see him fight another top notch JJ artist, I think a fight against Rousimar Palhares makes sense and it would be an amazing fight. I love that fight and I really hope it gets booked. Gracie could also fight Chris Leben or Chris Camozzi.

Munoz should fight Bisping - Reason: Munoz looked outstanding. His wrestling and ground and pound was fantastic, when he fights like that I don't know if anyone in the division can beat him. I was very impressed. It looks like he'll be fighting Michael Bisping next, I like that fight a lot and I think Munoz is going to dominate Bisping. Looking forward to that fight.

Boetsch should fight Rockhold - Reason: Boetsch got dominated but he didn't give up, so theres that. He'll be fighting Luke Rockhold next and I think thats a good fight for him. It makes sense for both guys and I'm expecting a very good fight. Boetsch needs a win very badly.

Swanson should fight Edgar - Reason: Swanson looked fantastic, might have been his best performance to date. Hes up there for a title shot but I think Chad Mendes and Ricardo Lamas are both ahead of him in the title picture. So I think a fight against Frankie Edgar makes the most sense. It would be a great fight and it would be a contender eliminator at least for now. The Winner will be one step closer to a title shot, also Ricardo Lamas will then be fighting for the belt and The Winner of Edgar/Swanson can then fight Chad Mendes for the #1 contender spot. It would clean up the top of the division very nicely. I really hope the fight gets booked, it would be great. Swanson could also fight The Winner of Mendes vs Guida or Nik Lentz.

Siver should fight The Loser of Mendes vs Guida - Reason: It wasn't Siver's night and I expect him to bounce back in his next fight. I think it should be against a lower top 10 guy, The Loser of Mendes vs Guida makes the most sense to me. I think it'd be a great fight and I hope it gets booked. Siver could also fight The Loser of Poirier vs Koch or Charles Oliveira.

Craig should fight Lawlor - Reason: Craig looked very good, he had Leben badly hurt at one point but Leben is extremely tough to finish. I was impressed by Craig, his striking look good, just a solid performance all around. For his next fight I'd like to see him fight Tom Lawlor. I think it makes perfect sense and I think it would be a great fight. I hope that fight happens. Craig could also fight Ed Herman or C.B. Dollaway.

Leben should fight Nedkov - Reason: Leben looked very slow in that fight, I'm going to say that its time to retire but its almost that time. I think he has about 5 fights left in him before he has to call it quits and for his next fight I'd like to see him fight Stanislav Nedkov. That fight would be awesome and it makes sense. I hope it gets booked. Leben could also fightRoger Gracie or Chris Camozzi.

Parke should fight Krause - Reason: Parke looked good I wasn't too impressed. For his next fight I'd like to see him fight James Krause, I think it makes sense and I think it would be a very fun fight. Hope it happens. Parke could also fight Ross Pearson or Daron Cruickshank.

Tokudome should fight Oliveira - Reason: Tokudome lost but he'll be back and for his next fight I'd like to see him face Rafaello Oliveira. This fight makes sense and I hope it happens. Tokudome could also fight Mac Danzig or John Maguire.

Gonzaga should fight Jordan - Reason: Gonzaga looked good, didn't get to see much of him but in this case thats a good thing. Hes fighting Shawn Jordan next and I really like that fight, it makes a lot of sense. It should be a fun one. I think Gonzaga will be trying to get it the ground as soon as possible, Jordan is a very explosive guy with a lot of power in his hands. I'm looking forward to this one.

Herman should fight outside the Organization - Reason: This was Herman's Fourth thats right Fourth loss in a row and he needs to be cut, if he is not cut I will 100% believe that he threw the Nogueira fight in Brazil. He should be cut, let him go and fight outside the Org for a while, if he wins a few in a row bring him back but right now he doesn't deserve to be in the UFC.

Barboza should fight The Winner of Lauzon vs Johnson - Reason: Barboza looked fantastic, his kicks are phenomenal and I can't wait to see him fight again. Hes right on the verge of being Top 10 in my opinion but I think he needs to fight someone with a name next. So a fight against The Winner of Lauzon vs Johnson makes all the sense in the world to me. It would be a great fight and I really hope it gets booked. Barboza could also fight Melvin Guillard or Danny Castillo.

Oliveira should fight Tokudome - Reason: Oliveira showed a lot of heart, his legs were badly heart and he kept on fighting until he could no longer. I don't think he'll be cut, I think he'll get another shot in the Octagon. I'd like to see him fight Kazuki Tokudome next. This fight makes sense and it will be a must win fight for Oliveira. Oliveira could also fight Mac Danzig or John Maguire.

Melancon should fight Gastelum - Reason: Melancon shocked me and a lot of other people. His striking and ground and pound was very impressive. Hes fighting Kelvin Gastelum next, hes replacing an injured Paulo Thiago. Its a step up in competition in my eyes and we'll soon have a better idea of how good Melancon is after the Gastelum fight.

Baczynski should fight Smith - Reason: Baczynski didn't look too good in that fight but I think he'll get another fight in the UFC. I'd like to see him fight Colton Smith next, that fight makes sense to me. I hope that fight gets booked. Baczynski could also fight David Mitchell or Paulo Thiago.

Pierce should fight Story - Reason: At first it looked like it was going to be another typical Pierce fight, a grinding fight that'd go to a decision but Piece landed a bomb on Mitchell and put him out. It was sweet. Pierce has two finishes in his last 3 fights, hes starting to finish people which is good. For his next fight I want to see him fight a guy who he should have already faced Rick Story. They apparently hate each other and we have all wanted to see this fight for a long time now. Make it happen Joe Silva, Book it! Pierce could also fight Tyron Woodley or Jake Ellenberger.

Mitchell should fight Patolino - Reason: Mitchell lost and it was his third loss in his last four fights, he might get cut but if he doesn't I think he should fight William Patolino next. I think it makes a lot of sense and I hope it happens. Mitchell could also fight Seth Baczynski or Amir Sadollah.
