Lots of good fights last night, weird how at one point this event had 14 fights scheduled and by the day of, it was down to 10. Either way I enjoyed the majority of them so here some match ups I'd like to see.

Antonio Silva - Cheick Kongo or Stefan Struve
Travis Browne - Mike Russow or Shawn Jordan
Jake Ellenberger - Maia/Story winner or Fitch/Silva winner
Jay Heiron - Thiago Alves
John Dodson - Demetrious Johnson
Jussier Formiga - Tim Elliot or Ulysses Gomez
Justin Edwards - Matt Riddle or Dan Miller
Josh Neer - Lance Benoist or Simeon Thoreson
Michael Johnson - TJ Grant or Jacob Volkmann maybe Matt Wiman
Danny Castillo - Bocek/Dos Anjos loser
Mike Pierce - Dan Hardy? Maia/Story winner also works for him
Aaron Simpson - John Maguire or Pascal Krauss
Marcus LeVesseur - Anton Kuivanen
Carlo Prater - Cut
Jacob Volkmann - Michael Johnson or Makdessi/Stout winner
Shane Roller - Cut
Diego Nunes - Ranu Yahya or Hominick/Garza winner
Bart Palaszewski - Yagin/Siver loser
Darren Uyenoyama - Chris Cariaso or John Moraga
Phil Harris - Jared Papazian or Lineker/Urushitani loser

Silva vs. Struve definitely should happen. Or a possible rematch with Werdum.

I like your list.

Last night I was thinking of matches to make.
I had the same with Hieron vs Alves. That is if Alves vs Siyar doesn't happen.
Ellenberger vs Koscheck. That's the original matchup before Kos got injures.
Dodson vs Mighty Mouse. For sure.
Nunes vs Poirier ?
Travis Browne vs Stipe Miocic

The thing is with Prater being on the cut list is a lot of people think he won the fight. So I don't know about that. But wouldn't doubt it.
Not a fan of Prater or LeVesseur. They just aren't very good at all on this level.

Worst case, is they both stay after that bad performance from both.

Prater should be cut though, if Charlie B. was just cut, Charlie had a better track record than Prater.

I agree. That was just one sad fight IMO. My least favorite of them all. I think he'll get his pink slip. If LeVesseur would have been on the other side of that split decision he would have gotten his.

I thinl Johnson could use a funner match up...he has a couple of wrestlers in a row....give him a solid step up, let him fight the winner between Penn and MacDonald. He asked for a step up, I say give it to him.
I also think that Browne gets another shot at the big time, let him take on Frank Mir.

johnson is a lw..penn and mcdonald are ww. i'd like to see him go against a dangerous striker like barboza, even jim miller would be a good test.

As for Browne i agree that he should get another top 10 guy, seeing as he will probably be out for a while maybe carwin, nelson or as you said mir.

I would absolutely love to have Joe Silva's job...

Nunes vs Hominick
Struve vs Bigfoot
Mir vs Browne
Hallman vs the scale
Jeremy Stephens vs the police
Yves Edwards vs Cerrone
Neer vs Jay Hieron
Ellenberger vs Pierce
Castillo vs Roller 2

too many more to list & really i don't care all THAT much about the others

...after all - i don't have Joe Silva's job, I'm not getting paid for this - so let him make the matches & I'll keep drinking

Neer/Hardy makes no sense, Neer 2 losses in a row, while Hardy has 2 wins in a row.
