Pretty much that whole list works for me. I'd love to see some of those fights.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

That's a good list. But Tarec Vs Lawler getting contender fight doesn't make sense.
I think Condit should fight Tarec

Kampmann Vs Stun Gun

Lawler/Diaz rematch would be fun

who else deserves the #1 contender match after ellenberger and maia?

condit and diaz both coming off 2 losses including title shots. rory refuses to fight gsp. kampmann coming off a loss

saffiedine and lawler are the only ones left in the top 10 and on winning streaks

The UFC won't match Condit up with Rory after tonight. Rory is coming off of four straight wins and Condit is coming off of two losses. It wouldn't make sense.

St. Pierre vs. Hendricks
Condit vs. Kampmann II
Diaz vs. Koscheck
Ellenberger vs. Maia

GSP-Hendricks (Maia will likely be held up to fight as an injury replacement)
No number #1 contender fights
Ellenberger vs MacDonald
Condit vs Koscheck - both are coming off two loses and while neither should be cut one of them needs a big win.
Diaz vs Marquardt - this strikes me as a retirement fight, both guys have big contracts, big headaches, and very little marketability left.
Mein vs Saffadiene - Marquardts demolishing really hurts Saffiedine's stock, Mein's stock is up and a Fuel TV main event/co-main event in europe with these two should be the right call.
Story vs Lawlor - I think Rick Story is back, I'm not sold on Robbie Lawlor these two could have a great slugfest.
Miller vs Cote
Volkner vs Hardy

GSP Vs Hendrick -A no brainer. No one in the division has done more than Hendrick to earn the title shot.

Maia Vs Ellenberger -Title Eliminator fight

Nick Diaz Vs. Josh Koscheck -presuming Diaz doesnt retire. Both men coming off 2 straight losses and imagining the trash talk that will lead up to the fight.

Rory MacDonald Vs. Tarec Saffiedine -Don't think UFC will match MacDonald up against Condit now considering that Condit has suffered 2 straight loss now.

Marquardt Vs. Rick Story -Not sure how to match up Marquardt now. Since they are suppose to fight Marquardt before his release last time round, let them fight now.

Kampmann Vs. Condit -A rematch which can also serve as a rebound for the winner.

Well obviously St Pierre and Hendricks gotta get it on. I feel Hendricks is a real threat to St Pierre especially if he can keep the fight standing. Hendricks last night really impressed me he gave Condit a good whooping and I consider Condit to be the third or forth best welterweight in the world. I'd like to see Diaz go against MacDonald or perhaps Koscheck if MacDonald is paired up with Condit which is a fight I'd like to see as well. Ellenberger and Maia should get it on for a number 1 contender spot. If MacDonald is matched up with Diaz or Ellenberger I wouldn't mind to see Condit take on Robbie Lawler. Welterweight division has to be the best division in the sport right now so many contenders and good fighters. I can't see anyway that Joe Silva can mess up the match making in the next year for the welterweight division as there are so many good fights that can be made and that make sense right now.
