Fights to make after UFC 153
 
Anderson Silva

GSP

A good opportunity for either fighters to cement their place as P4P king. Would do great for their legacy. Anderson wants this fight, so lets hope GSP takes it. I see Anderson demolishing GSP though.

Other options: Weidman, Shogun, Jon Jones.

Anderson did say he might vacate his middleweight title though. Don't think he is intent on fighting Weidman. Nomore light heavyweight bouts for Anderson as well...not sure what he wants.

Stephan Bonnar

Retirement.

Big Nog

Stefan Struve

Stefan Struve is nearing top 5 with his win over Stipe. I think Big Nog demolishes Struve. Would make a good win for Big Nog to end his career with.

or

Bigfoot Silva

It would make for a fun fight.

Dave Herman

I'd say cut him. Otherwise,

Lavar Johnson or Shane Del Rosario

Glover Teixeira

Rampage

Glover wants that fight, give him it. Rampage might be out of his prime, but he still presents a difficult challenge for anyone in the division. He has good takedown defense, good striking, and a granite chin. If Glover gets past Rampage, it propels him into the top 5 of the division.

or

Phil Davis

Two prospects who impressed tonight. Would make for a good fight.

Fabio Maldonado

Jimi Manuwa

Fabio has pretty good hands, so lets see how he fares against another striker in Jimi Manuwa. Would be a hell of a fight.

or

Ryan Jimmo

Jon Fitch

Winner of Rory Macdonald/BJ Penn


Fitch looked very impressive. If Rory wins, he is ready for a top 5 opponent in Fitch. If BJ wins, we get to see the rematch of the draw they had in the previous bout.

Erick Silva

Thiago Alves

I think this would be an awesome matchup. Alves has good striking that would be an excellent test for Silva. His grappling isn't as good as Fitch so I don't think he would contemplate taking Silva down.

or

Che Mills

Two prospects going at it, lets see who is the better one. Che Mills looked pretty impressive against Ludwig.

Phil Davis

Vinny Magalhaes

I don't think Davis would be keen on taking Vinny down...or I might be wrong. Lets see how he does against an elite BJJ fighter, since he is so dependent on his wrestling.

or

Glover Teixeira

As I said above...

or

Winner of Sonnen/Griffin

I think Sonnen wins against Griffin, and its highly unlikely he has to fight another time before his title shot. However this would make for an amazing fight. Lets see whose wrestling is a notch better.

Wagner Prado

Ryan Bader

Both guys coming off losses. I think if Prado loses again he should be cut. He didn't look good in the standup and on the ground against Davis.

Demian Maia

Gunnar Nelson

This would be a step down in competition for Maia but dam if he submits Nelson it would be a huge statement. Nelson also has decent takedown defense so lets see how Maia fares.

or

Mike Pierce

A good test for Maia. If Maia is going to want to challenge for the welterweight title, he gotta get past some wrestlers. Pierce is an excellent one at that.

Rick Story

Jay Hieron

Frankly I don't like Rick Story, and I think Hieron should be able to pull off a win against Story. I hope Rick gets cut after this fight.


Post what you think should be the matchups made after this fight!

A note on the idea of Phil Davis not wanting to take Magalhes down. Davis is no slouch in bjj gaining a victory at the 2009 Mundials in the 221+ weight class as a blue belt.

He is nowhere near the grappler Vinny is.

Anderson should fight JBJ or retire.

GSP has lots of opponents left at WW, many who he has never fought.

1. Condit
2. Diaz
3. Fitch (deserves another shot after tonights performance)
4. Kampmann
5. Marquardt
6. Ellenberger
7. Maia

Silva just dominated a large LHW. As much as I like GSP, he has no chance against Silva. GSP is two weight classes below Bonnar, and smaller than Silva. Silva knows this, and appears to refuse to fight JBJ, while challenging GSP...

Maia vs Fitch I want. Winner of Rory Penn is getting a shot at kampmann vs Hendricks.

No. He is nowhere near the pure bjj guy Vinny is. In an mma match he butchers him. Magalhes just isn't that good in mma.

What did Silva say during the press conference? He has two fights left wants GSP next, and another super fight?

Absolutely, I think that could be one of the best fights ever, Anderson v GSP is gonna be boring imo, GSP will do nothing but look for take downs and hold him down. Diaz and Anderson would be fun to watch even though it doesn't make the slightest bit of sense, Nick can take a lot of punishment and also dish out a ton too. Obviously Anderson would be clearly the favorite but he is not gonna completely rip the shit out of diaz standing like he has done with everyone else, Diaz would be able to hold his own imo, he would still lose standing but make it a good fight.

Phil relies so heavily on his wrestling and Vinny is one of the best grapplers in the UFC. Not saying Phil couldn't control him and get a win, but he would definitely have to be very careful.
