What sort of fight do you want for Costa next then? I don't think he deserves the boost a MW would get for smashing Boetsch at the moment due to the controversy surrounding the result.
He didn't decide who won the fight, but his gameplan was to win the fight by engaging as timidly as possible and to out point Lombard. Nah, I don't like the guy and I'm glad he got punished for trying to hop on the Strike n Bike bandwaggon.

Costa, couldn't care less about what happens to him either. I don't like or dislike him, completely neutral really, don't really care for the guy.

Do Costa vs. Larkin. Costa will probably elevate himself into top ten contention and Larkin was supposed to fight Rockhold for the SF Title.

Would you still be upset with him if the judges awarded Lombard the victory? I feel like there would be no ammo in that case, it would have just been seen as a poor fight on Boetsch's behalf.

I just don't think Costa deserves a top 5 guy because of this win, a rematch would really clear things up.

The problem is nobody knows Larkin and they are trying to build Phillipou into a draw, putting Cyprus on the MMA map! Same reason they never cut Alessio Sakara and they felt the need to give Pascall Krauss as DLC on the UFC game.

Maybe a fight with Rich Franklin? Big name, not so high in the rankings.

I'd still be pissed off at him for fighting like he did regardless of who got the win, yes. But I've never liked watching Tim Boetsch in the octagon, just never have and probably never will do.

And no, Costa certainly doesn't deserve a top 5 MW after his win, but I couldn't really care less if they gave him a top five or if he never fought again in the UFC. I'm not particularly fussed about him.

I feel like Boetsch and Philippou are fringe top ten guys I don't think they deserve top five guys the same way Hector Lombard and Jacare Souza do. I would say give them two from the Cung Le, Brian Stann, Alan Belcher, Mark Munoz, Jake Shields and Tim Kennedy group to establish where both fighters actually are at and then a top five guy (for both of them).

I could get down with that. All have decent names. I think Rich would be the best option for Phillipou at this point though.

I have no idea if Rich will ever fight again, he wanted to make a run at the Middleweight title again but Cung pretty much ended that, no need to keep taking damage when he's probably set financially and has nothing to gain. I also don't see Costa getting far, I thought Boetsch was beating him until the unfortunate circumstances, his only options appear to be Okami, Belfort/Bisping loser, Rockhold, Lombard, or Jacare. Stann is fighting Wanderlei at 205 and no one really knows what's up with Munoz, either way I don't think he can beat any of those guys I mentioned. Larkin/Costa would be the fight I would make.
