This should be the next fight because you could also hype it as the two orgs champs unifying the titles but I dont think they do that.

I think the goal is for Pettis to beat Cowboy and you get Bendo/Pettis rematch.

If Cowboy wins I def think you go with Gilbert, even if he hasnt had a fight in the UFC you can still promote him as top 3 in the world and the number 2 orgs LW champ. Unification fight always makes the fight bigger.

Gilbert was only gonna go to 45 if Nate won.

Not on youtube  but it was at grapplers quest Gilbert shot in for a takedown Benson caught him in a choke and jumped guard similar to what he did to Varner the entire match lasted about 15 seconds it's the same tourney where he went against Hendricks in the open weight finals

Melendez v Bendo must happen.

Champ vs Champ fight.

Melendez is absolutely the #1 contender once he signs w/zuffa.

Great back story to Build on along w/ the champ vs champ angle (Gil coming for some get back for Nate's loss).

I think Bendo takes it easily, but they do have a decent marketing angle for it.
