I thinkl Maia would be an awsome match up.
They could both give each other trouble!

I'd like to see him fight okami but not for his first fight

belcher would be a nice test to see where he belongs in the division

He is going to run over a lot of guys, all of those guys on tthe poll would get mauled by Akiyama. Akiyama would have trouble with guys like Hendo, Marquardt, Maia, and of course Anderson. But Akiyama is such a great addition to the division. Im stoked.

WAR AKIYAMA!!!

Belcher is probably the #1 choice because of his win against Kang.

Belcher!!!! I have never wanted to see a guy get beat so bad in my life. He pulls one out of his A$$ with Kang and now he is so cocky he wants top guy well here ya go!


Or wait for it............Dare I say............Catch weight fight..........with.........GSP...........I can see it now the headline fight of the night Battle of the greasers!!!!

Pleas don't ban me for that it was all in good fun!

This is fantastic news, I'll be excited for his debut no matter who they match him up with though.

give him the spider for his debut. he'll be MW champ in 1 fight!

man, akiyama blows gsp out of the water with his sexyness. Huerta doesn't even come close either.

I think that Belcher is the most sensible option.

I would like to see Belcher get f'd up by Akiyama as well.

I went with other...

I can see them going with a guy like Sakara or Jason Day...

I think the UFC wanted Kang to win and was dissappointed in his loss to Belcher... And would think they want to start Sexyama off with an easy win, IMO

Maybe even Kendall Grove or Jake Rosholt or something like that

I voted other, if they're trying to draw big in Asia then definitely give him Liu Kang, otherwise it should be a top-tier guy, maybe Maia if he doesn't have a title shot coming up or Leites if he loses to Silva.
