Fabio Maldonado was recently called out by Ovince St. Preux on Twitter, and he says he'd consider that fight. He also stated that wouldn't mind facing his former training partner Rafael "Feij√£o".

OSP would repeat his last performance and Feijao would probably KO him as he likes to get punched too much. Neith err fight makes sense either.

OSP is a terrible idea. He aggressively pursues takedowns and top control and would make a terrible fight. It would be like THREE rounds of that awful first round against Villante.

On the other hand, a fight with Cavalcante would be an awesome idea! Both of them like to stand and trade. I disagree with others that Feijao would have an easy time here because his chin is not even close to Fabio's. Maldanado is really easy to hit, but even Glover couldn't really put him out so there's no guarantee that Cavalcante would get a finish. Also, I'd give Maldanado an edge in cardio.

Give him somebody that will stand and trade punches. He's not the best fighter, but I enjoy watching him.

Shogun needs a "bounce-back" fight and Maldonado will fight anybody. Those body shots would have Shogun gassed quickly if he doesn't KO him early.

OSP sounds good to me. They're both on 3 fight win streaks in the ufc and a win for either guy should get them a top 10-15 guy next.
