Anderson silva= JBJ . The gsp fight really does not have many upsights for GSP. I think his manangement and himself would be cagey about taking the fight. And if you compare this match up to the JBJ match up it is obvious this fight makes more sense. Silva might not go for it but perhaps if the UFC offers him an insane amount of money. And going as far as saying i am not interested in seeing the fight would be a step to far but the JBJ Silva would be a more equal interesting proposition. GSP would be an heavy underdog. I also believe that Weidman deserves a shot against Silva before his retirement.   Bonnar: I would like to see another Griffen fight. But i also would not mind seeing him fight against big Nog. It might be a hard fight to make now since Nog is coming of a W but it would be a good fight to watch. A more realistic option would be an Thiago Silva fight (regardless of the Nedkov outcome). Big Nog: Congo would be cool but i would not mind see him fighting Hunt either.A rematch with Mir might not be a terrible idea either if Strikeforce really folds (rather see Cormier fighting top five immediately). My personal favorite match up would be a Struve Big Nog fight but i am not sure Big Nog would be extremely happy with it.   As for Davis. I rather see him fight Belfort. I dont see Vitor making the cut to middleweight anymore and he would be a good test for Davis. Much more so then Vera,who comes with the added complication of being his teammate. Bader would also be an option in my eyes.

Really hoping for GSP vs Silva. That's an iconic fight that'll be remembered forever. (in MMA terms)

Davis and Vera are on the same team, I doubt that fight happens.

Wagner Prado vs. Fabio Maldonado ???Eh what ? Could have checked wikipedia at least. Wagner Prado and Fabio Maldonado are both Team Nogueira. They will never fight each other.Even DW said during the post event presser that he understands that brazilians dont like to fight each other. Let alone team members.

I'd like to see Bisping get a shot at Silva. Maybe Davis vs Jones.
