Great suggestions! I think Glover would be an awesome matchup for excitement and logical for Johnson, but isn't he having surgery? Manuwa would be an awesome matchup, but wouldn't do anything for Johnson's ranking.

This. Most of us would rather see two legends rematch rather than seeing Lil Nog probably catch a major beating.He's just been inactive for way to long to get thrown in with Rumble in his first fight in a year and a half.

"you would love to see Rumble fight someone who got beat up by Nog, but not Nog himself? Hmm.."Rashad certainly did't get "beat up by Nog", that was one of the worst fights I've ever seen. And Rashad is and always has been higher ranked.

Don't sleep on little nog. His boxing is probably better. Davises boxing was never good so even though rumble standing had him standing that doesn't necessarily mean he can do the same to nog. Plus I don't think rumbles wrestling is all that great. So so nog can focus on picking apart his standup game without worrying about being smothered for three round
