Fights to make after UFC 155.

UFC 155 was a terrific card for me. Miller vs Lauzon was awesome. What do you guys see in store next for the fighters that competed on the card?

Cain Velasquez

Overeem would most probably get the shot next if he wins against Bigfoot ( which he will ).


I say fight the winner of Struve/Hunt. The winner of that fight would probably be somewhere near the top 5. Struve would get a chance to prove whether he has improved or not, while JDS-Hunt would be what so many want to see.

Or Josh Barnett may be another option. (If Barnett wins his next fight on Jan 12)

Jim Miller

I really don't know who to match Miller up against. He loses against the elite, but manages to beat guys like Lauzon. Give him a fight against the loser of Pettis-Cerrone.

Another choice would be Dos Anjos. Dos Anjos looked like a beast against Bocek.

Joe Lauzon

NATE DIAZ! Lauzon didn't drop down much the rankings while Diaz got smashed by Henderson. FOTY candidate anybody?

Costa Philippou

Even though he stopped Boestch, I have to say it wasn't really that impressive. Boestch easily won the 1st round, and then broke his hand (during or before the fight?), got headbutted and then eyepoked in the 2nd.

I would match him up against Weidman to determine the next number 1 contender, but since they are training partners, a fight against Lombard sounds good as well.

Tim Boestch

Though I seemingly hated on him for what I thought was an "undeserved" fairytale streak, Boestch showed a ton of heart and won me over in this fight.

With that said, Belcher? Both are fairly even in the rankings, and it would prove who really deserves their place in the top 10.

Yushin Okami

Many feel that his fight against Belcher was boring, but I really liked his top control in this fight. Anyway, feed Okami to Weidman! I feel that Weidman is the next big thing in middleweight, and a fight against a stiff test in Okami would really serve to show how good Weidman is.

Alan Belcher


Derek Brunson

This guy needs to get cut by UFC, period.

Munoz-Brunson should happen. Munoz would beat this guy out of the UFC, while getting Munoz back on the win column.

Chris Leben

Leben should retire.

Eddie Wineland

I think wins over Jorgensen and Pickett should get him the title fight against the winner of Barao-McDonald.

Brad Pickett

Raphael Assuncao? Assuncao is on a decent 3 fight win streak and a win would net one into contendership status.

Erik Perez

I think the UFC wants to build up this guy to be their next Mexican star. I'd say give him Alex Caceres. I really like Caceres and he should give Perez a good fight.

What I personally would do is set up Perez-Jorgensen though. No more easy fights!

Jamie Varner

That split decision on his record is ugly man. What were the judges thinking...

Anyway, CRUICKSHANK! I want to see what Cruickshank is capable of. Beautiful double attack this guy has.

Melvin Guillard

I think it is pretty confirmed that this guy is not getting near a title shot anymore. Henry Martinez? One of them is getting knocked out for sure.

Todd Duffee

Dave Herman! Would be nice to see Duffee KO a few people.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones
