I think Ion is gonna be out for 2 years so I don't think he's a good option for Michal.
Michal vs Dominick Reyes is probably the fight to make

Diakese should probably take a step down in competition at this point. Give him a debutee or Marcin Held.

I guess the UFC can still do Saki vs Rountree. I mean, Saki is only 1-1 in mma so it doesn't really matter that Rountree is coming off a loss.

If Smolka doesn't get cut give him Ashkan Mokhtarian.

The rest of your matchups look pretty good

I think Magny should fight Masvidal next instead of Till. I'd like to see Till fight Ponz next.

I forgot Ion was out for a while. That fight crossed my mind because they were originally slated to fight.

Magny vs Masvidal would be cool too. Magny, Till, Masvidal and Ponz they are all right there close in terms of rankings.

Cyborg - Megan Anderson I guess. This division does NOTHING for me honestly.
Holly Holm - Sara McMann

Khabib Nurmagomedov - Tony Ferguson/Conor McGregor
Edson Barboza - Justin Gaethje (Oh hell yeah. Funny, I was thinking Lee as well. )

Daniel Hooker - Keeping in mind that he wants on UFC 221, I think Kajan Johnson would be a good matchup. Kajan has won 3 in a row and fought back in September so he should be getting ready for a matchup to be made for him. Hooker makes sense to me.
Marc Diakese - Jason Saggo (Loser leaves town matchup)

Carla Esparza - Karolina Kowalkiewicz makes too much sense not to do it.
Cynthia Cavillo - Danielle Taylor/J.J. Aldrich loser

Neil Magny - Kamaru Usman when he beats Meek next card. Finally give the guy a proper step up in competition with Magny.
Carlos Condit - Retire or Tarec Saffiedine or Jake Ellenberger (Ellenberger being my favourite option. A rematch 9 years in the making)

Michal Oleksiejczuk - Move to Middleweight to fight Julian Marquez
Khalil Rountree - Gokhan Saki (Even though Khalil is coming off a loss now it doesn't really matter to me. That's not really the point of Saki being here. It's to put on fun fights and this would be a fun fight.)

Myles Jury - Jeremy Stephens/Doo Hoo Choi winner
Rick Glenn - Artem Lobov

Omari Akhemedov - Charles Byrd needs a debut matchup still
Marvin Vettori - Alessio Di Chirico

Matheus Nicolau - Jussier Da Silva/Ben Nguyen winner
Louis Smolka - Cut or Hector Sandoval

Tim Elliot - John Moraga (Surprised these two have never fought before)
Mark De La Rosa - Albert Morales
