Fights to make following UFC on FOX 7

Ben Henderson - Gray Maynard / TJ Grant winner. If the Maynard/Grant winner get's hurt and can't fight by Sept/early Oct then UFC will likely wait for the Aldo/Pettis winner.

Gilbert Melendez - Jim Miller / Pat Healy winner - I expect this to be Miller.

Daniel Cormier - Dan Henderson / Rashad Evans winner - I'd like to see DC make the cut to 205, but he would need a fight before fighting for the title

Frank Mir - Alistair Overeem - I don't know if Mir has the takedowns to get Overeem down, but these are two of the bigger names in the division

Josh Thomson - Diego Sanchez - Winner would be right in contention for a number 1 contender fight *edit* - If Eddie Alvarez can get free of Bellator and sign with UFC in the near future then Thomson/Alvarez is the best fight.

Nate Diaz - Yves Edwards - Nate needs to rebound after a couple of tough losses

Matt Brown - Thiago Alves - Brown wants to play with the Big Boys... let's start with Alves

Jordan Mein - Amir Sadollah - There is no need to rush Mein, and I think there are some lessons he can learn from the Brown fight. Sadollah would be a good bounce back fight.
