Pick 1 UFC star/champ/fav in their current form, match them up with a fighter of the same weight class in their form then say why the fight would be fun or matter for the sport. Not "prime" fighters...fighters as they are today.

HW Stipe vs Vitaly Minakov
Same build and same type of fighters, both champs of the premier leagues in the sport plus a certified slugfest.
LHW Liam McGeary vs Nikita Krylov
Would have been perfect had Bellator picked him up, again both have similar builds and style...would be a high action fight.
MW Mamed Khalidov vs Luke Rockhold
Not a weak match up for either, both have great strikes but I think the kicks of Rockhold would make it a good fight, plus Mamed would test that chin for sure.
WW Ben Askren vs Damian Maia...total grappling wizards at its finest.
LW Michael Chandler vs Jim Miller just cause I think Miller pulls the best out of every opponent.
FW Frankie Edgar vs Patricio Freire...I want to see someone either in a war or giving us a quick finish...this guarantees one of those outcomes and maybe even both.
BW Eduardo Dantes vs Marlon Moraos


Add more or less if you want but the only other fight I really want to see (if possible which I doubt) is Rousey vs Cyborg....sorry but they built it and I came so....WTF!

HW - JDS vs Fedor - Fedor might be a shell of his former self but I'd still be interested in this one.

LHW - Anthony Johnson vs Liam McGeary - I think it would be a good style matchup. It's a fight I couldn't see going more than 2 rounds as well.

MW - Jacare Souza vs Mamed Khalidov - Khalidov is up there with Fedor as one of the best fighters to never have a go in the UFC imo. This would be another really good style matchup. Both are much more well rounded than Johnson and McGeary though.

WW - Demian Maia vs Rousimar Palhares - The grappling matchup we never got to see. It doesn't have as much appeal as it did a year or two ago but that's a fight I always wanted to see but probably never will

LW - Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje - This one writes itself. How great would that fight be? I hope we get to see it after Gaethje finishes out his contract.

FW - Max Holloway vs Patricio Freire - Again, another great matchup this would be. FOTN written all over it.

BW - John Lineker vs Joe Warren - This wouldn't be a competitive fight but I imagine how great the knockout would be. Who doesn't love seeing Joe Warren lose and lose badly?

FLW - Ben Nguyen vs Askar Askarov - Watch out for this kid. This would be a good opening fight for him.

BW - John Lineker vs Joe Warren - haha...yeah screw JW!
