Would hate yo see Gambino or Herman cut after a series of good but losing performances such as those. Remember the UFC kep Matt Brown after a real bad run because he put on great perfomances. Herman I would give a newbie as a last chance. Gambino a TUF guy on a loser leaves town match as well.

I agree... They keep giving Herman fairly top level fighters. He gets a win over a guy like Einemo, and then they toss Struve, Big Country and Big Nog at him. I'd like to see him face a couple of mid-level guys and then move up from there. He has a lot of natural, raw talent and is a fun fighter to watch. His submission defence skills during the Nog fight was pretty impressive!

Anderson Silva - Weidman/Boetsch winner, but would love to see Jon Jones but that won't happen just yet.
Stephan Bonnar - I think its his time to hang it up. Hes had a good career and he will always be a fan favorite. Nothing left to prove, thanks for the years of good fights Bonnar.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - Mark Hunt or Kongo
Dave Herman - Christian Morecraft
Glover Teixeira - Rampage
Jon Fitch - Jake Ellenberger

I agreed with most of what everyone else had for the lower tier fighters.

Why on Earth would you give Mir a guy who has just lost 3 in a row, and is/was nowhere near the top 10??

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira VS Stefan Struve or Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva

Dave Herman VS Stipe Miocic or Pat Barry

Glover Teixeira VS Thiago Silva or Jimi Manuwa

Fabio Maldonado VS Wagner Prado or Krzysztof Soszynski

Jon Fitch VS Demian Maia or Jake Ellenberger

Erick Silva VS Mike Pierce or Matt Riddle

Phil Davis VS Shogun Rua or James TeHuna



This has some of the best match ups mentioned yet.

E. Silva vs. Riddle is a good one

Like the Nog and Struve one as well, but hoping they do Struve vs, Big Foot

If Herman doesn't get cut, I like him versus Stipe

Fitch could fight either or, I would be fine with that.

Davis vs. Te Huna makes more sense, as Shogun has the big fight with Gustafsson.

Glad you like them.

When I post on "fights to make" I generally pay little or no attention to logistics (who already has a fight booked with who) and simply share some fights I'd like to see.

Pumped for Shogun VS Gustafsson, though!

EDIT: I do try to match winners with winners.
