Right now, Evans vs. Jones and Sonne vs. Silva are already on the process so I will not include them.

These are the best fights to make in my opinion:

Evan Dunham vs. Edson Barboza: This are 2 young fighters that wants to break in to the top 10 ranking of Lightweight division. I am very sure that whoever win in this fight will enter the top 10. And, who will not enjoy this fight?

Phil Davis vs. Forrest Griffin: Davis is the "future" while Griffin is the "past". And this 2 fighters want to be one of the "present" stars of UFC.

Chris Weidman vs. Rousimar Palhares: This will be a good grappling match. Weidman uncoat the "prospect" to his name but if he wants to be called one of the contenders he should beat another contender.

Michael Bisping vs. Demian Maia: Maia is the only the best available opponent for Bisping.

Dan Henderson vs. Shogun Rua II: I hope you are not surprise. Henderson's futures was on the line on FOX 2 and because Evans wins his fight and Henderson and Rua are still the number 3 and 4 205 warriors, they should fight again to get a title shot for summer.

dude pretty much agree with you on all those choices.... i really like griffin vs davis and dunham vs oliviera. i could see these both being entertaining fights. thats if griffin comes in to fight. but dunham, oliveira is a sick match up.

I won't give away too much since I'm half way through writing an article for this but I agree full heartedly with a few of those ideas

I've been screaming for Bisping/Franklin for a long time.....definitely a fight that would not disappoint.

Henderson is back now. Maybe Bisping/Henderson II for #1 contender?
