Just thought it would be fun to create a current list of the top 10 fights that you would currently most like to see, following 3 simple rules

1. Fights have to include fighters currently signed to the UFC, so not Lesnar vs Fedor Crap.

2. Fighters have to currently be in the same weight class, so no Silva vs GSP or Silva vs Shogun.

3. No RE-Matches

My Top 10 (in no particular order)

1. Cain vs JDS
2. Bisping vs Sonnen
3. Maynard vs Penn
4. Toney vs Lesnar
5. Guillard vs Edgar
6. Morecraft vs Mitrione
7. Shogun vs Rash
8. Jake "Dana's Bum B1tch" Shilds vs Hughes
9. Machida vs Jones
10. Palhares vs Maia

I like the idea

1. Cain vs JDS
2. Fitch vs Kos
3. Little Nog vs Machida
4. Okami vs Silva (Haven't fought in the UFC yet!)
5. Lesnar vs Roy Nelson (I would like to see Nelsons BJJ vs Lesnar wrestling)
6. Swick vs Sanchez
7. Guida vs Edgar
8. Gonzaga vs Big Nog
9. Bisping vs Cote
10. Maia vs Bisping (I think it would be interesting to see if Maia can take Bisping down with as much as he "moves")

Bisping vs Sonnen? Oh man that one is gonna be sad. Maynard I expect a grinding decision. Your last one will be completely unwatchable. Two BJJ guys gonna try to box with each other for 15 minutes.

6. Swick vs Sanchez
I like that one, I wish there was a way that the fans could contact the UFC, maybe a poll on there website or something, so we could suggest realistic match ups like this because it may not get thought of any other way because they may not be that obvious until someone points it out, if I could just suggest 2 matches to Dana right now from these lists it would be Swick/Sanchez and Morecraft/Mitrione because they both would make so much sense yet may not be that obvious until its pointed out in your face.

I think we would find out who has the better Jusitsu, I think even if Maia wanted to stay on his feet, which I dont think he would, I think Palhares on the other hand would still want to test his BJJ even against Maia and look for the submission, forcing Maia to use his, could cancel each other out maybe who knows, but I would still love to see which one of them would come out on top if they where to roll with each other.

1. Mark Hunt vs. Roy Nelson (atomic butt drop vs. belly splash!)
2. Michael Bisping vs. Anderson Silva (cause Bisping getting KO'd never gets old)
3. Rashad Evans vs. Jon Bones Jones
4. Wanderlei Silva vs. Patrick Cote (should be one fun slugfest)
5. Shogun vs. Randy Couture (let's see if Shogun can KO another hall of famer, or will Randy pull off another miracle win?)
6. Tito Ortiz vs. Jon Bones Jones (cause seeing Tito get beat up never gets old either)
7. Demian Maia vs. Chris Leben (Leben flopping like a fish never gets old)

cain vs cigano would be bad ass,dont want brock to lose the belt but this fight would be nice consolation prize if he does

jones and bader is going to happen sooner rather than later if both theese guys keep winning like they've been

1. (LW) Nate Diaz vs BJ Penn - this could never be for a title because Diaz will never be at that level, but now that BJ has dropped down with his loss this would have been a perfect match.

2. (WW) Josh Koscheck vs Matt Hughes - the battle of the boring wrestler vs the interesting one, plus think of the trash talk between these two.

3. (MW) Yoshihiro Akiyama vs Yushin Okami - This would be a great number one contender fight, both guys are evenly matched and both could give Anderson a run for his money.

4. (LHW) Forrest Griffin vs Rich Franklin - A top ten spot elimination fight this could be one of the all time great fights. I've always been bothered by the fact that Forrest has been given some guys that he had no chance at bringing out a great match from, Franklin could pull that out for him.

5. (HW) Roy Nelson vs Frank Mir - clash of styles, Nelson loves the top and Mir loves the bottom and both have a claim to be at the top of the HW heap.

6. (LW) Frankie Edgar vs Takanori Gomi - Other guys have a better claim to a title shot but this is stylistically the most exciting to me.

7. (WW) Dong Hyun Kym vs John Hathaway - The battle of future Welterweight champions I can see this being the first of a trilogy.

8. (MW) Chris Leben vs Wanderlei Silva - This is Leben's shot for back to back MOTY contenders because I think he has this year all sowed up.

9. (LHW) Jon Jones vs Lyoto Machida - To me Machida has never truly been tested while Jon Jones has run through brawlers. I want to see Jones fight a highly skilled counter puncher and I want to see Machida go head to head with someone that can knock him out.

10. (HW) Mirko Cro-Cop vs Randy Couture - Cro-Cop is a future hall of famer and what better hall of fame fight than with Randy Couture. I'm also interested in seeing how Randy will prepare for Mirko.
