Wouldn't mind seeing the Wiz get another shot. He keeps it interesting with his chin, and would be an excellent fight for someone they are trying to showcase.

I like Rashad/Shogun. That is main event material. Puts either one as a solid "next-best", and would probably guarantee either one of them a title shot if Jones were to lose or make that inevitable move to HW.

Izquierdo/Makdessi sounds fun.

Torres/PAge would be fine, but if Faber loses I think we might finally get to see Torres/Faber if for no other reason than there is not much else out there for either of them at that point. That fight could still carry a small card even if it means next to nothing in the big picture.

I have a strange desire to see Roy and Ben rematch the greatest HW fight in IFL history.

I'd like to see Blanco get a rematch with Brimage. Not the fight, but the flip-off contest at the end. Put em in a cage and see who can do more backflips in 15 minutes.

Danzig would make a good fight for the winner of Barboza/Dunham.

They should feed Eddie Yagin to Chad Mendes.

Wonderboy should fight Justin Laurence when he gets done with TUF.

Browne should get a good look. A fight with Schaub would be interesting and not the normal lose/lose of a fighting a guy coming off a loss. Otherwise, either one of those guys would be good opponents for Carwin when he returns.

Escudero- Bellator is always looking for a solid lw.

Hominick- Manny sounds good. He needs a tough fight, where someone's job is likely on the line.

Chad Griggs- Antonio Silva, for no reason except to have Bigfoot v Gravedigger.

Alessio- meh. Make him and Dennis Hallman fight to see who is the true Cyberpunk.

Bocek/Wiman sounds about right. That's a solid card filler.

Clements/Siyar would be some fireworks

Che Mills- PAulo Thaigo if he has woken up yet.

Both the McDonald bros should get something that can set them up for a title shot. Michael/Pickett would be good. WW is a mess right now, but Rory vs. the winner of Ellenberger/Kampmann would do a lot to set up a clear contender.

Jones- Hendo I guess. Seems like now would be a decent time to make the move to HW.

I was saying last night Rory should have been matched up with Koscheck for the fight last night.

Remember when Rashad vs Shogun was suppose to happen but never did? Could be interesting.

Seriously the only one i want to discuss is Jones.....seriously after Henderson LHW is done except for Gustaffson. When Anderson defeats Sonnen MW will be in the same position. Anderson Silva vs Jon Jones for a bitchin' NYE event at Madison Square Gardens event would be a MMA orgasm!
