If you could make one matchup happen in each weight class, what would they be? and why?

Ill start it off...

LW - George Sotiropolous v Evan Dunham
In my opinion these are the 2 most entertaining lightweights and since they share some common strengths I think this fight has fight of the year written all over it.

WW - Jake Shields v GSP
I think GSP takes it hands down but their common wrestling strength would be negated therefore showcasing the other aspects of their games that have been missing lately.

MW - Wanderlei Silva v Chris Leben
Wow! Fireworks!
(or Gerald Harris v Anyone not making their UFC debut)

LHW - Jon Jones v Thiago Silva
A reasonable next step for "Bones" with a (previously) formidable opponent ending with a highlight reel KO preceeded by various high flying takedowns

HW - Junior Dos Santos v Shane Carwin
2 men enter, 1 man leaves on a stretcher. This is a true title contender elimination match.

I think Shields v Silva would look a lot like Silva/Sonnen did, except Silva would finish with a late KO (opening of 5th round) instead of the late sub.

I honestly think shields would be the first one to beat Silva. Silva was always scared of Maia and Leitas on the ground. Shields is like those two except he uses really good high percentage wrestling.

Cole Miller against BJ Penn??? That's a terrible match-up IMO. That's not even a fair fight.
