I like the Glover matchup, a great main event for a free card or comain for a ppv. But the reality of it is that Rumble is ATLEAST two fights away from a title shot. I see him finishing the next guy and getting a contender fight against someone, maybe Gusty after he's healed?

Johnson vs Gustafsson, PLEASE.

The UFC really shouldn't be killing off legitimate contenders anymore. Better off giving each guy a fight with an enhancement talent as main events for Fight Pass cards.



Are you saying you don't want to see Gus vs Anthony?


Yes. No sense putting rumble against someone who is currently injured and next in line for a title shot. I'd like to see him ruin osp/bader and then a title eliminator bout. Why not glover vs Davis and then winner vs rumble, assuming glover wins?




No reason not to give him Glover/Davis winner, but I'd still rather see Gus vs Rumble. Seems like a more fun fight to me.

The heart wants what it wants.

Bader vs. OSP winner



First thing that came to my mind too, but maybe even a Gustafsson match up if he is healthy to go by the end of the year.

Anthony Johnson still needs another fight to get into that (level),” White told MMAjunkie at the event’s press conference.
“When I got cut from the UFC, that was the day I was like, ‘I can’t do this any more. I’m making myself look like a fool.’ I was hurting my team, I was hurting my team, and I was hurting myself. Sooner or later, you’ve got to grow up and listen. I think along the two years I was away from the UFC, I grew up a little bit.
