I know the event wasn't all to great but it could set up some interesting matchups in the future

Anderson Silva: GSP- they have already even started hyping the fight.
Thales Leites- Ryan Jenson, something tells me he is going to be buried on the undercard for a while.
Shogun Rua- Rampage Jackson, I know rampage will probably wait for his title shot but this fight makes too much sense right now.
Chuck Liddell- retirement, great career probably most well known fighter of all time.
Krystof Sozynski- Ryan Bader, these two should have fought at the TUF 8 finale if it weren't for krystofs little slipup.
Brian Stann- Steve Cantwell, fight was already signed and now both guys are coming off a loss
Luiz Cane- Keith Jardine
Steve Cantwell- Brian Stann
Cheick Kongo- Shane Carwin
Antoni Hardonk- Gabe Gonzaga
Sam Stout- Jim Miller
Matt Wiman- Cole Miller
Ed Herman- CB Dollaway
David Louiseau- Mark Munoz
Denis Kang- Tim Creuder
Professor X- cut
Eliot Marshall- Eric Schaeffer
Vinny Maghales- cut
Nate Quarry- Chris Leben
Jason MacDonald- Alan Belcher
TJ Grant- Pete Sell
Ryo Chonan- cut

Anderson: Maia.....but sadly i have a feeling it will turn out the same way as ther Leites fight
Leties: Rematch with Marquardt so Nate can get the win and title shot he should have had in the first place.

Rua: NOWHERE near a title shot. Jardine is the best bet for him now.
Liddell:I dont want him to get KTFO out anymore but i also dont want to have to fight B level fighters until hes done. So retirement and a HOF spot very soon. BUT i would like to see him KO Couture or Ortiz one more time

Cane: Matt Hamill. Both need a higher profile win on their records and both could become very popular quick.
Cantwell: HOUSTON ALEXANDER. Someone is getting KTFO is all i can say.

Quarry: Wilson Gouveia
MacDonald: Chael Sonnen?

Kongo: Loser of Mir/Lesnar or Carwin.. either way he TKOs them all.
