Matches to make after UFC on FOX 6?


TJ Grant vs. Jamie Varner

Surging upward in the lightweight division, T.J. Grant notched the biggest win of his career at UFC on FOX 6, a first-round stoppage via elbows against Matt Wiman.

This was a huge victory for Grant, but he'll probably have to build up his name with one more win before he is given the opportunity to fight a top-five lightweight.

A matchup with Jamie Varner has Fight of the Night written all over it and would be deserving of a spot on the main card of a big event.

Pettis vs. Henderson/Melendez winner

The call is easy here. Pettis should wait and fight the winner of that April bout between Henderson and Melendez.

Glover Teixeira vs. Ryan Bader

Glover Teixeira proved he's more than just a prospect against Quinton Jackson on Saturday, but his win wasn't one that makes him deserving of a title shot or even a fight with one of the top contenders in the light heavyweight division.

With a fellow heavy hitter like Ryan Bader coming off of an impressive win at the same event, it would seem to make sense for Teixeira to meet the TUF winner in his next appearance.

I like this idea.TJ Grant vs. Raphael Dos Anjos would be a good fight. I don't think Dos Anjos has a fight lined up right now.I wouldn't mind seeing Glover beat up Phil Davis, but the Rashad/Lil Nog winner interests me more.

Glover needs a better opponent than Bader. No disrespect to Bader but they're in different places in the UFC right now, Bader is 3-3 in his last 6 I believe and Glover is the undefeated prospect coming up. I'd like to see him fight Phil Davis. Winner of that fight should then get one more fight against one of the top guys and then a title shot if they win.

Tex ain't fighting teammate Machida, whom he will be back sparring to help out next week he said. Tex is one Strong dude, because he grew up on a farm/middle of nowhere I heard

GloTex vs the winner of Machida/Hendo would be pretty epic. He would KO Bader easy.

Guida vs Lentz actually makes sense. They're both coming off top wins over top contenders in the division but were not exciting to watch. Perhaps their 'boringness' would cancel out and we'd actually get a good fight out of it.

IMHO, Bader's not much better than Page. Styles make fights (which is why you have the results of Machida/Page, Machida/Bader and Bader/Page) but Tex just embarrassed Page and would do the same to Bader. Not to mention, popularity-wise, Bader's a step down from Page.Let him KO the winner of Nog/Evans. PIT REPRESEEEEEEEEEEENT!!!!!

GloTex vs the Nog/Evans winner. That's the fight they will make, I don't think they'll go the Bader route, and the Gus fight is far out I would hope they get Glover booked sooner than that.
