Come on now. Take it easy on the cuts. Martinez hung in there til the bitter end. The kid got heart & had a bad weightcut. Plus he just won one 2 months ago! Henry isn't a scrub, Cruichshank was just game.
Also Albert was impressive for 4:59 of that round. Him & Jorgenson put on scramble clinic & it certainly pleased uncle Dana sexually enough to bonus them both so give Prince Albert one more go.

PS: WAR Rory vs Condit 2 That match in BC needs to happen

I wish Penn would go back down to LW and make one more run at it. He is way to small to be fighting at WW.

I wouldn't want Martinez to get cut but his last W was a split dec and he just got KO'd after coming in overweight. So I wouldn't be surprised in Dana cut him like we've seen happen before.

LeVesseur has also looked very unimpressive in the UFC so I could see him getting cut.

What I would like to see if them fighting each other, which makes perfect sense imo.

Benson Henderson - Pettis/Cerrone winner or maybe Gilbert Melendez (I can't argue with either of these)
Nate Diaz - I'm not too sure where he goes from here. Hopefully this is a great learning experience for him. He needs to be less flat footed and he needs a lot of work on his takedown defence. I'd like to see him fight Eddie Alvarez (when/if he comes over) or Rafael Dos Anjos
Alexander Gustafsson - I like the idea of him filling in for Hendo. Machida/Gustafsson is a better match up even though I think Machida beats them both. If he doesn't fill in though, James Te Huna could be a fun fight.
Mauricio Rua - Evans/Nogueira loser sounds about right
Rory MacDonald - I want to see him fight Hendricks if the ufc goes with GSP/Diaz (I want Hendricks to get the title shot though). Carlos Condit would be a great fight too at this point. Both guys have grown since the 1st fight. Especially Rory.
BJ Penn - I want to see him back at Lightweight, fighting Gray Maynard next. Not sure I'll get my wish but that would be awesome. Just no more Welterweight fights.
Matt Brown - I agree, Dan Hardy would be a fun fight to make.
Mike Swick - Swick is not the same fighter he once was. That has been very apparent in his last two fights. I don't know where he goes from here. Maybe a fight with Josh Neer.
Yves Edwards - Good for Yves. I'd like to see him fight Daron Cruikshank next.
Jeremy Stephens - Mac Danzig. One more loss and he's probably cut though. 3 losses in a row is never a good thing in the ufc.
Raphael Assuncao - Scott Jorgensen makes sense to me
Mike Easton - Roland Delorme would be a good fight
Ramsey Nijem - Edson Barbosa/Justin Salas winner
Joe Proctor - Reza Madadi sounds good.
Daron Cruikshank - Yves Edwards
Henry Martinez - Marcus LeVesseur
Abel Trujillo - Tim Means. I'm much more interested in this now that I know Abel is a bit of a beast.
Marcus LeVesseur - Henry Martinez
Dennis Siver - Siver looks good at FW. Chan Sung Jung would be a crazy fight that could determine the next contender to the FW strap.
Nam Phan - I love Phan but that was a brutal loss. Steven Siler would be a good next step.
Scott Jorgensen - Raphael Assuncao
John Albert - He's tough but I think he needs some time outside the ufc to get him back on track. 3 submission losses in a row is a tough pill to swallow.

Nate Diaz should drop to 145 if he can...

Hes just way too weak for the wrestlers at LW...

BJ fighting a guy with a 6.5 in reach advantage showed bigtime...

I want McDonald and Condit again or Rory and Fitch or Rory and Kos or Rory and Hendricks...I dont think Hendricks wants a guy like Rory...his reach disadvantage would be a lot...

I want to see more of Abel Trujillo that guy is a beast....

I don't think Albert should be cut. Put up a good fight against a former title contender. Give him a shot against somebody lower caliber, if he loses that fight then cut him.
