Where does Tarec Saffiedine stand in the UFC?
The current, and final, Strikeforce WW champion will no doubt be signing (if he hasn't already) with the UFC.
He looked pretty impressive last night defeating Marquardt in a convincing decision ... but where does he place in the UFC?
I don't think he's ready to face the top 5, probably not even the top 10, but his Strikeforce belt should count towards justifying some immediate top 10 competition.
So who does he fight next?
Keep in mind that GSP/Diaz, Hendricks/Ellenberger, McDonald/Condit all seem to be heading to Montreal in March (that sounds like an awesome card btw) So definitely no top 5 matches for him, but does he even get a top 10 fighter, or does he get a 'warm up' match first?
Maybe Kampmann in April-ish?
