1.I would like to say Pettis, but I can't. If Guida can take him down and hold him there, Melendez can do it too. Melendez by UD.

2.Nate is just too big and hits too hard. Nate by KO.

3. 2 very good strikers, who would most likely stand there and bang it out. Shogun can take it, Feijao not so much. Shogun by TKO.

4. Now this is an interesting fight. I would say that Bisping would outpoint him standing, maybe even TKO him late in the fight. I just don't see Rockhold keeping Bisping on the ground, if Chael couldn't. Bisping by UD or TKO.

5.Mir has no chin and I doubt he can take down an Olympic caliber wrestler. Cormier by a vicious one punch KO, and Mir retires after the fight.

6. Leben by KO, Lawler hasn't been himself for quite a while. Or maybe he just never was that good?

7. Masvidal by KO, Soti is just terrible.

8. Close fight, but I would take Thompson based on his latest showing against Melendez.

9. KJ Noons by UD, Gomi is just too old.

1. I agree, Gil is probably able to outwork Pettis and get the UD.

2. I agree again, he is too powerful and too good of a striker for Kos to handle.

3. I agree again. It would be entertaining but it would probably come down to Shogun being able to handle the punches better.

4. Again, I agree it's an interesting fight. I think Rockhold is one of the few people that could actually out pace Bisping. Even though Bisping has an underrated ground game I still give the nod to Luke. But Bisping might be able to stay on his feet and pepper him with strikes, very possible.

5.Again, I agree with all of that.

6.I think Robbie could beat Leben. I think he has the better wrestling if he really wanted to go that route and he also has the faster hands. But I think Leben could probably take whatever Robbie dishes out and eventually land the big one.

7. I think it would be competitive, but I lean Jorge as well.

8. This one is tough. I want to say Thompson would pull it off but I'm actually leaning toward Miller in this matchup. But I'd really like to see it play out.

9. I think it would be a fun fight while it last. I just think eventually KJ lands too many shots and Gomi won't be able to recover. But still, just sounds like a fun matchup IMO.

Of your matchups I have Melendez (very good fight though), Marquardt, Bisping, Shogun, Cormier.

My matchups:

Melendez vs. Maynard : I have Maynard

Marquardt vs. Nick Diaz: I have Diaz

Feijao vs. Te Huna : I have Feijao

Rockhold vs. Belcher : I have a close fight going to Rockhold

Cormier vs. Cain (yea not happening) : I have Cormier

Jacare vs. Lombard : I have Jacare

Safferdine vs. Dunham : I have Dunham (that would be a good fight though)

Mousasi vs. Gustaf : Mousasi perhaps wins. Never know with that guy though.

Barnett vs. Mir : I have Barnett.

Thanks for adding matchups and playing along.
For your matchups.
I think Maynard would be a tough matchup for Gil, so I agree with you, Maynard wins that matchup.

Even though Nate might have more diverse strikes and more power I still like Nick's boxing if the fight stayed standing. On the ground I think Nick is too technical. I got Nick all the way.

Te Huna is underrated but I don't think he is ready for Feijao just yet. I got Feijao in that one as well.

Cormier vs Cain is very interesting. I think Cormier is the better wrestler with better take downs and has more power in his hands. But Cain is faster and the better overall striker. But I don't think he can hurt Dan so I think Cormier comes away with it.

Mousasi vs Gus would be an amazing matchup. I actually think Mousasi takes it because he is more experienced. But I'd love to see it.

Mir vs Barnett is something I have been wanting to see for awhile. Just seems like a logical match to make. I think Josh has the chin and sub defense to get it done. I think he would take it.

You believe Cain would lose to Cormier? Fair enough. Glad to see Barnett v Mir mentioned. This is a fight that's been in the making for years. Dana knows this needs to happen. Saw that you went for Barnett. I would of before the Mir/Nogueira fight but submitting Big Nog is a little bit special. I couldn't call it. Makes me want to see it!
