Amanda Nunes - Holly Holm





Nunes vs Holm for title eliminator... I like it. It will give both fighters a chance for more experience before the big fight and confirm the #1 contender status, or depending on Cat's next fight, might setup the winner for a fight against her for the #1 contender and line up perfectly with Ronda's schedule, and provide vindication with a Nunes/Zingano rematch if she wins, or Zingano/Holm still providing a chance at vindication if Cat wins... or Holm bulldozing her way through the division by beating both.

That leaves Miesha, so perhaps that should be Cat's opponent. If Tate wins that fight, she'll still have to get through Nunes or Holm, which would justify her getting another shot.

...All of this to see who might actually give Ronda some competition.

Glover Texeira - I think you nailed it with the Rumble/Manuwa winner, which I'm hoping means Glover vs Rumble because we fans have earned having nice things.

OSP - Manuwa/rumble loser makes sense. A part of me wants to say Rampage, but I think Rampage/Shogun has to happen first.

Dariush - maybe it's because I'm salty about the crappy decision in this fight and want to punish him, but I was thinking Tony Ferguson, but again, I could be salty about the decision

Michael Johnson - I like the Josh Thomson match up. We could run with that. I will also alternatively accept Gilbert Melendez.

I'd much rather see Holm not get pushed to fast into a title shot or title eliminator bout. I think she should get a couple more fights under her belt before starting to make a true run at the title. I think Nunes vs. Davis is a perfect fight to make and if Nunes wins give her the title shot....unless Ronda takes a bit of time off and/or faces Cyborg next year. If that's the case then the winner of Nunes/Davis could take on the winner of Zingano/Kaufman (or something like that) to see who's next in line.
