What's next in line for the incredibly talented and underrated Jeff Joslin? Last we heard the Karate / BJJ blackbelt was set to fight Chris Lytle at UFC 73, but dropped out from injuries. So depending on how long he needs to recover, who should he fight next in the UFC welterweight division? I believe a rematch is well deserved against rising star Fitch, as Joslin was robbed against Jon Fitch at Freedom Fight.

This guy may not be known to many, but he's relatively undefeated, dropping two decision which belonged to him (the Fitch fight should actually have been a TKO, watch the link) in Qu├ębec, and losing to UFC star Josh Koscheck in his debut, who really had no answer for Joslin's strikes or submission attempts, and gutted out a boring and unwarranted lay n' pray decision.

I would hope that once Joslin is done recovering, comes back to take on Lytle, or Fickett. Both would be entertaining matches. Lytle would probably be the fight he'd get, just because they were supposed to fight before, but Joslin got hurt, and Lytle just got a win.. Also, who knows how long Fickett will be out.

I'd like to see him fight Luke Cummo or Marcus Davis, but have no idea who they have for him. Always exciting to see stand up fighters in the WW class since it has been mostly grapplers for so long.

...he's also a wrestling champ and a BJJ blackbelt...

As a fan of both, I would rather not see Joslin and Davis fight for a long time.. I wouldn't want it to hurt either's chance at reaching the top.. Cummo is okay.. I think Joslin would win that.

Wasn't sure of his credentials on the gorund but knew he had some training there as well, just mentioned him as a stand up fighter because that's what he perfers not all he can do.

I agree that he is underrated, but he is always injured. I wanna see him in the octagon before we make anymore assumptions. Lets see him put together a couple of wins in the UFC.

I would love to see Joslin get a rematch against Fitch once he gets some recognition. I thought he won that fight as well.
