Dan Henderson vs. Jon Jones

I touched on this briefly in my post-fight video that was filmed in Toronto, but I think it all depends on when Dan Henderson recovers from his knee injury. If Henderson is ready to go within a few months—and assuming the arm injury suffered by Jones doesn't keep him on the shelf for an extended period of time—I think a bout between the pair makes the most sense.

After all, we were supposed to see the fight happen once already, and you know how that turned out. It's still a fight fans are interested in, even if it may seem like Henderson has very little chance of actually winning. But, as Belfort briefly proved, Jones is human. Could the aging legend be the first guy to legitimately beat the champion?

Michael Bisping vs. Anderson Silva

No matter what you may think about Bisping as a person—and your notions are probably incorrect, anyway—there's no doubt that his dominant win over Stann should earn him a title shot. Unfortunately, he may get lost in the shuffle due to a potential Silva superfight with Georges St-Pierre. If that mega-fight doesn't happen, then Bisping deserves his opportunity.

Vitor Belfort vs. Wanderlei Silva

I'm assuming that Belfort will lose the instant muscle he put on for the Jones fight and make the move back down to middleweight. He was supposed to face Wanderlei Silva earlier this year, and it's still a fight that makes a lot of sense, even if it makes me terrified for Silva's health.

Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson/Jussier da Silva

Joseph Benavidez vs. Ian McCall

Cub Swanson vs. Chan Sung Jung

There's a bit of a size difference, but I think Nick Diaz vs. Bisping would be fun to see.

Let Bisping beat the winner of Weidman/Boetsch and THEN he'll be deserving a shot. Let him build a little more steam and hype around him.

I've been starting to change my tune about Bisping in a positive way, but I'd like to see him rack up at least 2 top 10 wins in a row before fighting the P4P #1 in the world. Let's be real here. Phone Post

Bisping does not deserve a title shot. A win against Brian Stann does not garner you a title shot. Let him fight Vitor. If he wins, than I'll concede he deserves a shot. Anderson is gonna be tied up for awhile it seems, yet Bisping now deserves a future shot? What a load. There are so many people that are in that mix, or could be. Don't forget Rashad might be dropping down as well.

 Anderson vs Bisping is a fight the MGM would pay a decent site fee for...  Silva brings the brazilian whales and bisping brings some brits and it's a marketable fight.

This fight will probably happen on superbowl weekend.

Swanson vs. KZ is the only fight that I would be excited about on that list.

I wanna see Vitor vs. Wand for sentimental reasons.
