Barao over Aldo and Tex over Machida? Interesting picks. I think both would be wildly entertaining fights and I think all fights listed have the potential to be competitive.

I think Barao/Aldo would be competitive. But I think Machida would wipe the floor with Glover.

Barao has super impressed me thus far, Aldo IMO really has only had moments of brilliance. I watch Aldo fight Florian and am utterly unimpressed then you have the Mendes fight which was a thing of beauty I am really not as sold on Aldo as most.

Tex/Machida I look at like this Machida's big thing is he is "elusive" right, well if he is training with somebody then they likely know how to catch him, they have had hundred of rounds to figure Lyoto's game out not the 3 or 5 the guys who fight him usually do.

It goes both ways. It's not like Glover figured out Machida while Machida learned nothing about Glover.

I don't think Teixeira stands a chance against Machida. Teixeira doesn't seem to be improving anymore. His striking is really nothing good to speak of. He keeps marching forward and fires that right hand. I'm sure Machida will be able to exploit that.

Barao vs Aldo is a much better fight but I believe Aldo takes it. Barao has a good jab but Aldo has an equal reach, and surely Aldo ain't gonna let Barao jab him all night. Aldo also throws better combinations, much better in fact. Barao seems to get hit a lot when he goes for a combination.

Yeah I think you make great points with both. You are right with Aldo he shows flashes of brilliance and but he also has moments were he looks very beatable. His domination of Faber was brilliant, his flash KOs of Cub and Mendes were exceptional, but then you see his last couple rounds vs Hominck and he looks very beatable. I think he is kind of like Anderson Silva were he is a different fighter when motivated.

When it comes to Tex vs Machida I think Machida is still smart enough to remain elusive vs Glover. Just like you pointed out with their familiarity with each other I think Machida knows how Tex would attempt to run him down and would be prepared. Obviously I think Tex has a chance to catch him and hurt him, that's why I listed the fight. I would love to see it play out.

Daniel Cormier vs Cain Valasquez

Nick Diaz vs Jake Shields- at 180lbs
George St. Pierre vs Rory Macdonald
Renan Barao vs Jose Aldo-at 145
Urijah Faber vs Joseph Benavidez-at 135
Glover Texeria vs Lyoto Machida
Antonio Silva vs Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
I'm really not sure about Silva/Nog. It might come down to size after all.
