Sorry this is late, I didn't get a chance to watch the main card until this afternoon so here we are. Velasquez impressed me big time, Loved the Miller/Lauzon and Garcia/Holloway fights, was happy to see Philippou and Wineland get their biggest UFC wins and Brunson, Okami and Jury put me to sleep lol.

Cain Velasquez - Overeem if he gets past Bigfoot
Junior Dos Santos - Hunt/Struve loser or Werdum if he loses to Big Nog... hard to make fights for JDS seeing as he's already fought or trains with most guys at the top of HW division
Jim Miller - Wiman/Grant winner or Rafael Dos Anjos
Joe Lauzon - Tavares/Nurmagomedov loser or Mark Bocek
Constantinos Philippou - Bisping/Belfort winner or Yushin Okami
Tim Boetsch - Mark Munoz or Rousimar Palhares
Yushin Okami - Costa Philippou, Cung Le or Hector Lombard
Alan Belcher - Bisping/Belfort loser
Derek Brunson - Nick Ring or Francis Carmont
Chris Leben - Karlos Vemola or Tom Lawlor
Eddie Wineland - Rafael Assuncao
Brad Pickett - Brian Bowles? Where has that guy been. Or Mike Easton
Erik Perez - Hugo Viana or Johnny Bedford
Byron Bloodsworth - Cut
Jamie Varner - Yves Edwards or Tibau/Dunham winner
Melvin Guillard - 1-4 in last 5, could get Cut or face someone like Mac Danzig or George Sotiropoulos
Myles Jury - Ross Pearson or John Makdessi
Michael Johnson - Anthony Njokuani or Fabricio Camoes
Todd Duffee - Pat Barry or Gonzaga/Rothwell winner
Phil De Fries - Jordan/Russow loser
Max Holloway - Pablo Garza or Matt Grice
Leonard Garcia - Cody McKenzie
John Moraga - Darren Uyenoyama or Benavidez/McCall winner
Chris Cariaso - Jussier Formiga

id like to see cain whoop on werdum or fight overeem/bigfoot winner. yushin okami should fight stann or lombard, i think both of them pose a serious challenge with their punching power, or the loser of bisping/belfort.

i gotta disagree with belcher fighting bisping or belfort even if its the loser. i think he should fight a guy like cung le or tim boetch. i think okami would be a better fight for either of those guys

Constantinos Philippou- Belfort/Bisping winner

I think ppou has fought enough grapplers for now let's see him against a guy not scared of standing.

I love Okami Lombard. It is a solid test for Lombard and stylistically, on paper, a tough fight for Okami. Okami excells at running rough shod over people in the grappling department and he is big and strong and muscles people to the ground, often from the clinch. With Lombard's judo background it'll be hard for Okami to outwork him in the clinch. It'll be interesting to see if Okami can get him down or if he has to strike with him. If he does end up striking with him it'll be interesting to see if Lombard can get inside on a much taller fighter in Okami and touch Okami's chin and put him to sleep.

Great list, I think all of your MW fights are spot on. I hate Miller vs RDA, but it seems inevitable for them to fight. I just think RDA will clown Miller and it gives me a sad.

It blows my mind that Guillard is looking his career in the face when just a year ago he was bordering on a title shot.

even though im not a fan at all of okami's fights, this match up does intirgue me.
