These are fights that i think would be benificial. These are not dream top contender matches, these are fights that would really break down the divisions.

Keith Jardine vs. Jason Lambert - Both coming off KO losses, both desperatley need a win to stay the UFC. The one who loses could be out of the UFC.

Matt Hughes vs. Matt Serra - Heavily Hyped fight, Hughes' last fight, Serra's first step back to getting back for a title shot.

Chuck Liddell vs. Shogun Rua - Winner possibly gets a title shot, loser moves down the ranks.

Lyoto Machida vs. Rampage Jackson - Lyoto has earned himself a title shot by far, 5-0 in UFC and has worked hard to get where he's at.

Yushin Okami vs. Anderson Silva - Last fight Anderson lost, a chance at revenge. Okami's long awaited title shot.

Wanderlei Silva vs. Rashad Evans - Rashad needs a big fight to get to that title, Wanderlei wants to beat Quinton down again and Rashad would be a good step up to get to that belt.

Fabricio Werdum vs. Cheick Kongo - Winner next in line for a title shot after Mir.

Tyson Griffin vs. Nate Diaz - Assuming they win both their next fight it could put them into a number 1 contenders match.

Thiago Alves vs. Josh Koscheck - Assuming Koscheck wins his next fight this fight would be a number 1 contenders match.

Brandon Vera vs. Antoni Hardonk - Exciting Kickboxing match, puts the winner in the top ten. Gives Vera a shot to get his career back on track.

Rousimar Phalhares vs. Martin Kamppmann - Winner comes up in the talk of the MWtitle picture.

Thales Leites vs. Michael Bisping - Number 1 contender

Gray Maynard vs. Manny Gamburyan - Puts the winner in the top ten.

Thiago Silva vs. Goran Reljic - A huge test for Silva, a huge oppurtunity for Goran Reljic.

Rich Franklin vs. Dan Henderson - If Franklin wins its another big win, if Hendo wins he could get a shot at redemption in a rematch with Anderson.

Thiago Silva vs. Goran Reljic is a fight I would really like to see. Although I think Thiago is more well rounded, and Reljic really only showed he is a banger, with two effective strikes. I like Thiago in this matchup.

im not sure what to call the opposite of nut hugging but i'll i'll call it nut punching......... why couldnt rashad be mentioned with these guys? unless you disagree with bisping fighting for the contender, you cant say rashad doesnt deserve to be mentioned. he did beat bisping after all. and everyone else he has fought in the ufc. he may not be the best and he might not be exciting but give him a break, he is still undefeated!

I think Herring is more deserving especially after he whoops up on Dana's Golden Boy!

Edit- sharing the love
