Awesome event! The UK events always seem to deliver and I love the enthusiastic crowd! Here's some fights I think would make sense/be sick.

Stefan Struve - So many options but I like Werdum or Carwin if he beats Nelson or maybe Hunt.
Stipe Miocic - Mike Russow or Shawn Jordan
Dan Hardy - Seth Baczynski or Thiago Alves would be fun
Amir Sadollah - Chris Clements or John Maguire or someone around that area
Brad Pickett - Eddie Wineland
Yves Jabouin - Justin Lawrence
Matt Wiman - Castillo/Johnson winner or Bocek/Dos Anjos winner
Paul Sass - Fabricio Camoes or Tony Ferguson
John Hathaway - Maia/Story winner or Kyle Noke
John Maguire - Amir Sadollah
Che Mills - Sean Pierson
Duane Ludwig - Cut/Retire
Jimi Manuwa - Diabate/Griggs winner
Kyle Kingsbury - Cut
Akira Corassani - Marcos Vinicius
Andy Ogle - Maximo Blanco
Brad Tavares - Andrew Craig
Tom Watson - Caio Magalhaes
Gunnar Nelson - Siyar Bahadurzada
DaMarques Johnson - Cut
Robbie Peralta - Darren Elkins or Rani Yahya
Jason Young - Daniel Pineda

What fights do you guys want to see?

I agree with both of you guys that Ogle should have won. Poor judging kept me from scoring in the 90s.

I really like the idea of Struve fighting Werdum next since Werdum isn't currently scheduled to fight anyone now and didn't absorb much damage against Stipe Miocic. With that win there and the streak Struve has been on as of late he is worthy of being ranked in the top 10 IMO. Either Struve has improved drastically or Stipe wasn't/isn't quite as good as we all expected.

I think Russow or Jordan might be too big of a step down in competition for Miocic.

And Hathaway, even though he's not super exciting, should get someone towards the 10-12 rank in the division to really test him.

And last give Tom Watson Court McGee. That would be a pretty tough match up for both guys.

Other than that I enjoy your list like always.

Hopefully they don't throw Che to the wolves again and let him build a little more. Didn't he get Rory in 2nd UFC fight?

Idk how many losses that is for Johnson, if it's only his second in a row, then he might get another considering he jumped in short notice.

Davies, I think these are fantastic matchup ideas:
Matt Wiman - Castillo/Johnson winner or Bocek/Dos Anjos winner
Paul Sass - Fabricio Camoes or Tony Ferguson
John Hathaway - Maia/Story winner or Kyle Noke

I think I would be most intrigued with Sass vs Furgy, but all of these are good.
I don't like the cuts, Johnson definitely looked like butt, but he did take this on short notice. It sends a very bad message to your employees if you are released after doing your boss a favor by taking care of someone else's job for them. Kingsbury should stick around since he's a perfect top 25 gate keeper and had his eye not closed, he probably would have subbed Jimi in the 3rd. As for Jimi, jeez laweez, his cardio and ground game and tdd need some serious work, but his striking is an absolute privilege to watch.

Thanks man, appreciate it! However I think it's kind of hard to defend Johnson not getting cut right now, sure he did a nice favor but he also came in very heavy when he said he could make 175 which Dana seemed not too pleased with. Also a 3 fight losing streak. I don't want to see him get cut because he's exciting to watch but I am just thinking he probably will be.
