Rich Franklin vs Brian Stann
Cung Le vs Jake Shields
Munoz is coming off a one-sided loss. Rich is coming off a KO loss. You can't just give no names to Franklin, he is a big name that needs at least a name to fight.
I really couldn't think of a good opponent for him at 185. So I gave him Munoz. He isn't going to get a guy no one knows. Like Forrest and Tito...even if Franklin were to lose 3 in a row he still would be given guys with name value.
It is a winable fight. Munoz's wrestling is overrated, Leban dealt with it well early on. Franklin has better hands and cardio than Munoz.
As bad as he is? Munoz is not a bad fighter; Weidman just made him look that way...not many people have an easy night against Munoz.
Franklin winner of Cote/Sakara
Cung - Hector Lombard (Cung isn't interested in being champ SF vs Bellator is interesting.) No reason to give a guy who isn't in the title hunt unfavorable match ups that will lead to horrible fights.
Silva - Hendo/Machida loser or welcome Gegard Mousasi to the UFC.
DHK vs loser of Kos or Fitch to see how he handles a wrestler.
Gomi- Matt Wiman
John Tuck - Thiago Tavares
I'm wondering about a DHK vs Rory matchup.
DHK is well behind Rory on just about anyone's ranking system, but would still be an impressive win if Rory can pull it off, and might actually halt Rory's momentum (or get it back on track if BJ beats him.)
Rich needs to retire, hate to be 'that guy' but he's been dropped and KO'ed in his last two fights, a lot of people thought it should have been stopped against Wandy and while Rich is a great fighter and an awesome person his time in MMA has sadly come to an end, Anderson is still around and so is Vitor so I always thought his "run at a title aspirations" were a bit far-fetched and he's too small to hang at 205 so, it looks like he should call it a day.
Give Cung a fight with Stann or Lombard if he beats Palhares.
Give Thiago Silva a fight with James Te-Huna, tell Nedkov to go to 185.
Stun-Gun should be fighting Pierce, I was really impressed with his grappling, I think they're doing an international FUEL TV card in February? Put him on there, that was the definition of grapple ******* against Thiago, speaking of which, give him Matt Brown regardless of the out come of the Mike Swick fight.
Gomi vs. dos Anjos would be a cool fight, and I like Danzig vs. Njoukani or however you spell it.
Zhang cut, but give Jon Tuck a fight with a low level guy to groom him. That was a really good fight.
Mizugaki can fight Bowles if he ever decides to come back and Houghland can get cut.
