Neil or Wonderboy or even Colby would be great. He deserves a top opponent. No offense to Maia, but hes on his way out and should be fighting someone like cowboy instead of the new killer whos dangerous af.

they shouldnt rush this guy, he's barely fought anyone. give him 2 more fights before any talks of titles or main event

As dumb as it sounds,  I really think Leon Edwards is his guy.  Highly ranked, yet boring, and the winner can be marketed.  If Borz wins,  he's a legit killer.  If Edwards wins, he derailed the hype train and actually fought a recent fight and could possibly get enough attention to fight Colby or the winner of Usman Burns assuming Colby fights street Jesus.  Neither of those two want Leon and nothing else makes sense for him at the moment.  Why not?

Let’s give him Edwards or the loser of Snooze and Burns if you want to see how good he really is.

Looking at tapology... UFC does not have announced or rumored main events for the Nov 7th or 14th cards.

You have to assume he is headlining one of those.

We should find out pretty soon who he will be fighting.

Have you seen some of the main events lately? I’d rather see Chimaev. UFC main event definitely does not always equal huge world beaters these days.

Examples of bad recent main events?

don’t recall any bad ones - Colby beatdown was fun, overeem fight was fun, didn’t watch the chick fight - what am I missing?

Edwards or Luque. Both hard fights. If he beats either, load him with the rocket fuel.

Darren Till?

I only dont like this fight because it will end the last of the hype Darren Till thinks he has left. Plus I would've just assumed Smash will stay at welterweight.

You just listed one. Waterson and Hill.

- Brunson and Shahbazyan

- Jessica Eye????

- Nunes vs Spencer

Not saying they’re all shit events but a rising star on a fight night card main event isn’t the worst they’ve done lately.

How about Pereira? The Brazilian fighter who revenge slapped that disrespectful Chechen fighter Imadaev. Highly entertaining. You would think Chimaev would be calling him out. I guess he dont want to get smoked.

I am also surprised that Chimaev is not asking for this fight to avenge a bro. Maybe Imadaev is such a prick he doesn't even bond with his own kin
