Jon Jones - Glover Teixeira. Although I think it should all come down to how long Gus and Jones are out for. If Jones is out a long time let Gus fight Glover and have the winner fight Jones. If not I say Glover should get it and give Gus the shot if he wins his next fight.

Alexander Gustafsson - Evans/Sonnen winner or Glover Teixeira

Renan Barao - Dominick Cruz

Eddie Wineland - Dillashaw/Assuncao loser.

Brendan Schaub - Dana said he's going to be filling in for a big heavyweight fight so my guess is Cormier, Nelson, Bigfoot or Hunt is injured and they need Schaub to fill in. Not going to put an answer for this one.

Matt Mitrione - Brendan Vera

Francis Carmont - Luke Rockhold or the Machida/Kennedy winner

Constantinos Philippou - Alan Belcher

Khabib Nurmagomedov - Ben Henderson or Rafael Dos Anjos

Pat Healy - Donald Cerrone

Myles Jury - John Makdessi

Mike Ricci - Mark Bocek

Wilson Reis - Alex Caceres

Ivan Menjivar - Rivera/Roop winner

Stephen Thompson - Zach Cummings

Chris Clements - Brian Melancon

Mitch Gagnon - Perez/Figueroa winner

Dustin Kimura - Hugo Viana

John Makdessi - Myles Jury

Renee Forte - Jesse Ronson

Michel Prazeres - Justin Salas

Jesse Ronson - Renee Forte

Alex Caceres - Wilson Reis

Roland Delorme - Yves Jabouin

Daniel Omielanczuk - Rosholt/Harris winner

Nandor Guelmino - probably cut tbh or Nikita Krylov

That is a good idea ! Khabib was calling for a title shot, why not give him Henderson. That would be a great fight but I still think smooth would be too much for him

Jon Jones was set to fight Glover Teixeira next, but the rematch is now possible

Alexander Gustafsson had such a strong performance that a #1 contender fight with the winner of Dan Henderson - Vitor Belfort makes the most sense to me. I don't see Chael Sonnen or Rashad Evans ever getting a rematch with Bones so I don't think either matchup would work. Jumping over Glover as I said for an immediate rematch is very posible as well.

Renan Barao should be fighting Dominick Cruz, who has not fought in right at 2 years, by early 2014 or will become the officlal BW Champion.

Khabib Nurmagomedov should fight the winner of Diaz-Maynard 3 or winner or Dunham-Cerrone

Francis Carmont is close to top 10 now, but had a boring fight so I doubt he gets a big name, my guess Thales Leites

Khabib vs RDA was the first fight to pop up in my mind.

Also I want Jones vs Glover.

And it might not make the most since but I was excited to see Gus vs Gegard originally.

Oh yeah, Thompson vs Lim would be fireworks IMO.
