I won't do that but I'm looking forward to Melendez-Thomson more than any fight on that list though. It has Fight Of The Year written all over it. If Bisping-Leben is signed, that's another one that could end being an absolute war. Same with Diaz-Sakurai for the Dream Welterweight Championship as well.

I think UFC 87 will be an amazing event and would kill affliction:banned easily
