Great action last night, one of the better main cards this year. So many guys looked outstanding and turned heads; Teixiera, Grant, JDS, Roop to name a few. A lot of interesting fights to be made and it's going to be fun to see where a lot of guys go from here

Cain Velasquez - Junior Dos Santos 3 it looks like but I also wouldn't mind seeing Fabricio Werdum if he gets past Big Nog
Antonio Silva - Mark Hunt or Stefan Struve
Junior Dos Santos - Cain Velasquez
Mark Hunt - Antonio Silva or Frank Mir
Glover Teixiera - Alexander Gustafsson or Henderson/Evans winner
James Te Huna - Vinny Magalhaes
TJ Grant - Benson Henderson
Gray Maynard - Jim Miller or Gilbert Melendez
Donald Cerrone - Diego Sanchez or Josh Thomson
KJ Noons - Takanori Gomi or Mark Bocek
Mike Pyle - Dong Hyun Kim or Martin Kampmann
Rick Story - Yoshihiro Akiyama or High/Silva loser
Dennis Bermudez - Manny Gamburyan or Conor McGregor
Max Holloway - Jim Hettes or Nam Phan
Robert Whittaker - Pierson/Robertson winner or Pascal Krauss
Colton Smith - Lance Benoist or Chris Clements
Khabib Nurmagomedov - Barboza/Makdessi winner or Masvidal/Chiesa winner
Abel Trujillo - Al Iaqunita or Yancy Medeiros
Stephen Thompson - Adlan Amagov or Ryan LaFlare
Nah-Shon Burrell - Jordan Mein or Brad Scott
George Roop - Bryan Caraway or Francisco Rivera
Brian Bowles - Mike Easton or Ivan Menjivar

Hunt vs Overeem/Browne winner
Bigfoot vs Overeem/Browne loser
Te Huna vs Silva/Calvacante loser (I want to see him not fighting another superior grappler as it is a waste of a good slugger.)
Ricky Story vs Thiago Alves would be pretty good IMO.
Abel Trujillo vs a slugger for sure please!
Stephens vs McDonald could be good too.

I don't mean to start anything, but Roy Nelson is coming off 3 consecutive wins all by KO/TKO, so I think he deserves a fight with someone who isn't coming off of a loss if he can get past Miocic.

Even though the stylistic match up between Nelson and Hunt sounds intriguing, I think Big Country has earned his way into the top tier of the division for a title run (not a shot quite yet, but starting a run at it). That might mean Hunt vs Nelson down the road if Hunt wins a couple (and Nelson wins a couple more), with the winner getting the shot.

I have a tendency to see things too technically though, so the UFC might side with ticket sales and go ahead and make Hunt vs Nelson.

Think that JDS and Cain Velasquez are going to fight five times in their career, it'll be a best of five situation. Very closely matched.
