Normally I do a top ten, here I'm going to do a top twenty, 10 fights to save the guys that lost and 10 fights for the guys that won

10 Iuri Alcantara vs Eric Perez - Perez is on a run, Iuri is a vet, I don't believe Perez is in line for a title shot so this should be a fun test/distraction.
09 Max Holloway vs Clay Guida - I'm assuming Guida loses his next fight, I'd like to see how Holloway's wrestling and power really is matched against a guy like Guida.
08 Ramsey Nijem vs Mac Danzig - sometimes a fighter on a skid needs to take a big step up to figure if they belong in the UFC (Michael Johnson). Nijem's dropped two in a row to big tough guys in heartbreaking fashion, Danzig is more of a fundamental guy so I'd like to see if Nijem belongs in the UFC.
07 Brad Pickett vs Rafeal Ascunsao - I go back and forth on Pickett as a top five guy but after his impressive wrestling we saw tonight I'd match him up with Ascunsao.
06 Uriah Hall vs Thiago Santos- Hall has confidence issues, so I would match him with the worst fighter in the division.
05 Mike Pyle vs Yoshiro Akiyama
04 Mike Brown vs Hatsu Hioki
03 Shogun Rua vs Dan Henderson II, I don't know which one is done but this was one of the all-time great fights so I'd like to see a sequel.
02 Joe Lauzon vs Rafaello Oliveira, Lauzon needs to get his mojo back, he needs a tune-up fight and Oliveira is the worst fighter in the LW division and loses fantastically.
01 Alistair Overeem vs Big Nog, I think it's the end of the road for one or the other send Overeem into Brazil and see what happens.

Of the winners
1 - Sonnen vs Wanderlei - because it makes sense ranking wise and I would hate to see Chael fight for the title again so soon after losing to Silva/Jones.

2 - Faber vs McDonald - for the interim interim's title or just for the next shot at the whomever wins between Barao/Cruz.

3 - Michael Johnson vs Melvin Guillard - They aren't training partners anymore and I would like to see some jackson/blackzillian on jackson/blackzillian action.

4. Travis Browne vs Josh Barnett - Browne isn't a title contender yet, but he's getting close. Barnett would be a very good name to put on his resume.

5. Matt Brown vs Condit/Kampmann winner - apparently Brown is in the title contention, hard to believe this is the same guy that lost to Seth Baczinski.

6. Conor McGregor vs Korean Zombie - both have to heal after injuries and Conor has earned a huge step up so he can contend for a title next year.

7. Diego Brandao vs Steven Siler II - TUF 14 is turning into the new TUF 5, just rematch them along and give the winner Dennis Bermudez.

8. Manvel Gamburyan vs Charles Oliveira - Olveira deserves an easy fight, Manvel should be that.

9. OSP vs James Te' Huna - just two big scary guys throwing leather with the loser dropping to the prelims

10. James Vick vs Abel Trujillo - brawl for it all

Browne vs Werdum for the next shot at the belt
Johnson vs Gomi, I'd say Guillard but I'm pretty sure they're friends and Guillard is booked
Overeem vs someone whose a big name but he can easily beat, like Big Nog or Barry
Matt Brown vs GSP

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I think Michael Johnson has flipped a switch and he's now EVIL so he'll have no issue beating on poor Melvin.

I like Siler/Manny and Brandao/Connor. Have the winners fight to see who moves on to contendership.
