Rich Franklin vs. Michael Bisping

Why not repay him for that goodwill by giving him a fight with a top contender like Michael Bisping?

The timing makes sense. Bisping is looking to return to the cage early in the fall, and that'll give Franklin plenty of time to rest, relax and ready himself for another run at the top.

And so what if Franklin does earn a title shot? And who cares if it's against Anderson Silva? It's been years since they stepped in the cage together, and Franklin's technique looked better against Wanderlei Silva than it has at any point in his career.

Wanderlei Silva vs. Vitor Belfort

Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort have some serious bad blood and personal history between them. Belfort's injury meant they couldn't settle their beef over the course of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, so let's give them another chance to figure things out from a fisticuff standpoint.

Fabricio Werdum vs. Daniel Cormier

Werdum deserves a big fight. Unfortunately for him, the UFC heavyweight title picture is clouded at best, likely for the next 12 months. Dos Santos and Velasquez will rematch this fall, and then, Dos Santos likely defends against the returning Alistair Overeem in early 2013. By the time, Werdum gets near a rematch with Dos Santos, it'll be next summer.

In the meantime, send Werdum to Strikeforce and have him fight Daniel Cormier. The world heavyweight grand prix winner also deserves a big fight to close out his Strikeforce run. This is the perfect pairing.

Wanderlei's next fight needs to be only 3 rounds, not 5. Then he won't have to fight so conservatively.

Haadogei - good picks by the UG writer.

and F*$% Garner vs Barnett, that is no good at all. Garner is the flavor of the minute, he is not on the same planet of status as Barnett. It would be an insult to even ask Barnett to take that fight.
It's bleacher report. Phone Post
