Spectacular night of fights, some of the best in a while for sure.

Mauricio Rua - Alexander Gustafsson
Brandon Vera - Thiago Silva
Lyoto Machida - Dana says winner of Hendo/Jones which is cool but I'd rather him face Shogun again or Glover Teixeira if he beats Rampage
Ryan Bader - Krzysztof Soszynski or Vladimir Matyushenko
Joe Lauzon - Khabib Nurmagomedov or Wiman/Sass winner maybe Gray Maynard if they want to give him a step up.
Jamie Varner - Terry Etim
Mike Swick - Matt Brown
DaMarques Johnson - Chris Clements
Nam Phan - Manny Gamburyan
Cole Miller - Daniel Pineda
Phil Davies- Wagner Prado
Wagner Prado - Phil Davis
Phil De Fries - Shane Del Rosario?
Oli Thompson - Cut
Rani Yahya - Javier Vasquez
Josh Grispi - Cut
Manny Gamburyan - Nam Phan
Michihiro Omigawa - Cut
John Moraga - Chris Cariaso
Ulysses Gomez - Uyenoyama/Gaudinot loser

I like that list, but I dont think Soszynski does anything for Bader aside getting a W. K-Sos should be fighting someone like a Kingsbury or Perosh to get back on track. Bader imo should fight someone like Pokrajac/Magaelhaes loser

de Fries imo should fight the winner of Mitrione and Broughton. Del Rosario is coming off a loss so I don't think they would make that fight.

other than that, every other fight looks solid.

Heres my input...

Rua - Glover Texeira

Vera - James TeHuna or Matt Hamill

Machida - Title shot from N'am!

The rest look fine. Good post dude, I like it when you post these predictions.

I'd watch this card featuring last nights fighters:


Lyoto Machida VS Dan Henderson

Mauricio Rua VS Alexander Gustafsson

Brandon Vera VS Cyrille Diabate (Vera needs a win)

Ryan Bader VS Igor Pokrajac

Joe Lauzon VS Evan Dunham

Jamie Varner VS Yves Edwards

Mike Swick VS Che Mills

DaMarques Johnson VS Stephen Thompson

Nam Phan VS Charles Oliveira

Cole Miller VS Daniel Pineda

Phil Davis VS Wagner Prado (rematch seems just)

John Moraga VS Tim Elliot

I'd like to see Varner vs Lauzon where both guys get a full training camp.

Mauricio Rua - Glover if he beats Rampage, Gustafsson if he doesn't.=
Brandon Vera - Forrest Griffin
Lyoto Machida - I'd rather see him fight Gustafsson or move to MW but I guess his fate is already sealed.
Ryan Bader - Thiago Silva
Joe Lauzon - Wiman/Sass winner
Jamie Varner - Tony Ferguson
Mike Swick - Matt Brown (Sounds good to me)
DaMarques Johnson - Mills/Ludwig loser
Nam Phan - Manny Gamburyan (Again, sounds good)
Cole Miller - George Roop
Phil Davies- Wagner Prado
Wagner Prado - Phil Davis
Phil De Fries - Shawn Jordan
Oli Thompson - Cut
Rani Yahya - Javier Vasquez (Sick fight)
Josh Grispi - Cut
Manny Gamburyan - Nam Phan
Michihiro Omigawa - Cut
John Moraga - Lineker/Urushitani winner
Ulysses Gomez - Tim Elliot

It really disappoints me to see Omigawa getting cut...and Grispi. Man what even happened with Grispi? He went from total top dog to nothing in a little more than a year. I really hope he makes it back.

Yeah, sad to see Omigawa go.
I think he needs an new camp maybe?
He always seemed like a guy with tons of talent.

Not true... He talks about it

He says he didn't remember saying it backstage and he doesn't want to yet but it's in the doctors hands.
