UFC 153 Main Card
Anderson Silva beat Stephan Bonnar
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira beat Dave Herman
Glover Teixeira beat Fabio Maldonado
Jon Fitch beat Erick Silva
Phil Davis beat Wagner Prado
Demian Maia beat Rick Story

Who is Next?
If you were going to play UFC Vice President of Talent Relations Joe Silva, who would you match up each of the winners and losers from Saturday night's fights? And as a fan, who do you want them to fight?

Anderson Silva
GSP, probably

Stephan Bonnar
One last shot at Forrest Griffin

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Cheick Kong

Dave Herman
Someone not in the UFC

Glover Teixeira
Rampage

Fabio Maldonado
Hopefully no one for a little while

Jon Fitch
Demian Maia

Erick Silva
Jay Hieron

Phil Davis
Brandon Vera

Wagner Prado
Fabio Maldonado?

Demian Maia
Jon Fitch

Rick Story
Dan Miller

Who do you think is next, and or who do you think should be next for any or all of the UFC 153 main card fighers?

I like Phil Davis vs. Vera and Rampage vs. Teixeira

I would like to see Bonnar vs. Forrest as TUF coaches then a third and final fight.

Not interested in GSP vs. Silva

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.

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.
