IMO Joe Silva doesnt do a very good job at what he is paid to do, which is put on fights that the Fans wanna see. i think ANY hardcore fan of mma could create a great card in the UFC. (i dont mean throw every big name fighter against each other)

Nate Quarry vs Martin Kampmann (quarry coming off joke win over kalib starnes, last impressive win was pete sell/kampmann coming over submission win over jorge rivera)



Out of all those fights, this was the only one I didn't want to see happen (yet).

I would much rather see at this moment a Jason Day/Nate Quarry fight (Jason Day is looking to rebound from the loss to Bisping, and he's still a great striker, so put him up there with Quarry who I think isn't ready for a Kampmann, and needs someone bigger than Pete Sell/Kalib Starnes, but not too huge a jump. Instead of throwing Quarry at the wolves, Franklin, like last time, just let him build himself up), and then a Martin Kampmann/Patrick Cote fight (Patrick should not be anywhere near a title shot, and Kampmann would solve that problem.)

I'd like to see them all, excluding Quarry vs Kampmann and Bonnar vs Cane

I'd like to see this instead:

Stephan Bonnar vs Goran Reljic (Bonnar coming off 2 impressive submission wins over Nickels and Schafer/ Reljic coming off KO of Wilson Gouviea)

I think that'd make sense

Just an FYI, it was Paul Taylor, not Paul Kelly who just beat Jess Laudin. Paul Kelly was the one who beat taylor at ufc 80, i think hes got a fight lined up for the next u.k card though.

Good match ups though, lots of fights id like to see.

i think Shogun vs Soko makes more sense, and maybe have Jardine or Gouveia face Luiz Cane. those are all possible match-ups.

For me what makes sense is if UFC 88 would have been...

Chuck vs. Machida (for title shot)
Thiago Silva vs Rashad (as it was supposed to be way back)


and AMEN to Nate vs Martin, I've been calling this fight since I bought my 88 ticket
