DAMN What a sick night of fights. Can't remember the last time a 13 fight card delivered with every single fight. So many guys were impressive as hell. Sanchez, Lombard, Velasquez, Melendez, Dodson, Ferguson, etc. all had great showings. I'm just going to do match ups instead of run downs as I have some stuff to do today, sorry guys.


Cain Velasquez - Fabricio Werdum or Barnett/Browne winner
Junior Dos Santos Barnett/Browne loser

Daniel Cormier - Alexander Gustafsson or Evans/Sonnen winner
Roy Nelson - Shawn Jordan or Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

Gilbert Melendez - TJ Grant or Pettis/Thomson winner
Diego Sanchez - Cerrone/Dunham loser or Benson Henderson

Gabriel Gonzaga - Hunt/Silva winner or Stipe Miocic
Shawn Jordan - Roy Nelson or Matt Mitrione

John Dodson - Jorgensen/McCall winner or Lineker/Harris winner
Darrell Montague - Louis Gaudinot

Tim Boetsch - Kennedy/Natal winner or Michael Bisping
CB Dollaway - Mike Swick

Hector Lombard - Dong-Hyun Kim or Ellenberger/Saffiedine winner
Nate Marquardt - Cut or Erick Silva

Jessica Eye - Davis/Carmouche winner or Sara McMann
Sarah Kaufman - Nunes/De Randamie loser

KJ Noons - Myles Jury or Tony Ferguson
George Sotiropoulos - Cut or Retire

Adlan Amagov - Gunnar Nelson or Hyun-Gyu Lim
TJ Waldburger - Noke/Cote loser or Pascal Krauss

Tony Ferguson - KJ Noons or John Makdessi
Mike Rio - Cut or Christiano Marcello

Andre Fili - Kevin Souza
Jeremy Larsen - Cut

Kyoji Horiguchi - Eduardo/Martins winner or Chico Camus
Dustin Pague - Cut



Also a bit off topic...
Has anyone else noticed that every card the Dos Santos and Velasquez have faced each other on a high profile lightweight bout has got FOTN and all were FOTY candidates?
Guida/Henderson, Lauzon/Miller, Melendez/Sanchez.
Lol just something I noticed that was kind of cool

Just wondering if Overeem wins against Mir would you guys like to see the JDS vs Overeem match that we missed out on. I still have an interest before it's too late.

Also I like the Cain vs Werdum matchup.

Dodson vs Lineker would be really fun. 2 FLW's that have legit KO power.

Amagov vs any legit striker would be guaranteed fireworks.

I love the Lombard vs Ellenberger match. 2 guys with suspect cardio issues and crazy power.


Very nice list overall DD15.

Nice, agree on all points but Marquadt - even if he's not relevant, he's got plenty of good fights to go.

JDS vs Reem is a now or never moment (however its an easy 1st Rnd KO for JDS)
DC at LHW vs Phil Davis
Lombard vs Ellenberger
Boestch vs Leben
Marquardt vs Story
Eye vs TUF winner

Im kind of one day hoping for a Roy Nelson vs Mark Hunt fight... Those guys probably have the best two chins in MMA, they could sling their knock out power, take it, and then just dust it off and keep moving forward, would be a war.

Cain Velasquez - Fabricio Werdum
Junior Dos Santos - Browne/Barnett loser

Daniel Cormier - Alexander Gustafsson
Roy Nelson - Hunt/Bigfoot loser

Gilbert Melendez - This one all depends on timing for me. TJ Grant if the Pettis/Thomson winner is out for long enough or the Pettis/Thomson winner if Grant isn't ready in time for that. Gil deserves one of the top 3 or 4 guys right now.
Diego Sanchez - Maynard/Diaz loser

Gabriel Gonzaga - Stipe Miocic
Shawn Jordan - Matt Mitrione

John Dodson - Lineker/Harris winner (I'd love to see Dodson and Lineker go at it. Been hoping for that for a while now.)
Darrell Montague - Darren Uyenoyama

Tim Boetsch - Kennedy/Natal winner
CB Dollaway - Larkin/Camozzi loser

Hector Lombard - Dong-Hyun Kim or Ellenberger/Saffiedine winner
Nate Marquardt - I don't want to see him cut but realistically he probably will be.

Jessica Eye - Sara McMann
Sarah Kaufman - Sexton/Andrade winner

KJ Noons - Tony Ferguson
George Sotiropoulos - Cut or Retire (agreed. He's at the end of his career I think being 36 and coming off 4 straight losses)

Adlan Amagov - Sean Pierson
TJ Waldburger - Thiago/Thatch loser

Tony Ferguson - KJ Noons
Mike Rio - Cut

Andre Fili - Blanco/Corassani winner
Jeremy Larsen - Cut

Kyoji Horiguchi - Chico Camus or Flyweight
Dustin Pague - Cut

I really like the idea of JDS vs Reem regardless of how Reem vs Mir goes (even though I suspect hubble telescope will be the only thing that will catch a glimpse of Mir's head as it exits our solar system)
I don't really want Gus vs DC, it is too likely that DC will get derailed and we won't see Jones vs DC. It isn't like there are a boat load of other LHW contenders these days, gotta play it safe and keep the division dynamic. Davis is a fine first fight.
Gil vs Grant, Bendo 2, Khabib, or Cerrone all make me happy
Dodson vs Moraga
