Whats Next for Winners at UFC 184

Rousey - Ok nothing much really to say she dominated and now needs a new challenger to make her weight class look competitive.

 

Next Fight - It has to be Correia. The Cyborg fight is going to hit steroid or some other issues again which will likely bog down progress for another few months soon so this makes most sense. Another undefeated fighter for Rousey to use as a ragdoll. Other contenders like Holm and Eye are nowhere near ready.

 

Ferguson - A win against one of the most experienced guys in UFC history is always good for your career.

 

Next Fight - LW is full of great fighters but Ferguson will want to crack the top 10 with his next fight. Thomson or Johnson could be a great fight for Ferguson. Thomson has only lost by split decision in the last three years if Tony can finish or decisively beat him he will be straight in the top 10. Johnson is a guy's who's been around for awhile and finally just showing his potential. A win against either of these men would put him straight in to the title picture.

 

Ellenberger - May have just saved himself from being cut. Impressive choke.

 

Next Fight - Dong Hyun Kim or Saffiedine both men are just in front of him in the rankings and building some momentum and staying on the winning track should be Jake's main focus right now.

 

Holm - Potential showing but still well off a fight with Rousey.

 

Next Fight - Alexis Davis is a test Holm needs they might want to give her one more before a fight like that but she will need to face an elite level grappler before they feed her to Ronda. McCann is the other route a good win against either would push her case for a title shot.

 

Jouban - Nice elbow to set up the finish.

 

Next Fight - Rick Story is an established name he just derailed the Nelson hype if Jouban can finish story he will be much closer to moving in to the top 10.

 

 

Who would you pick next for these guys and girls?

Nearly 3 years ago now though. If he could rematch and beat him now will show some real improvement or Barboza is another option though.

 

Why the **** would Johnson rematch Ferguson when he knocked out the guy who took Ferguson to a split in August and knocked out the guy Ferguson just fought last night?

 

Johnson is far ahead of him on the food chain as of now.

No point re-matching Johnson and Ferguson at this point, they're both on a roll, let them keep working their way up.  Plus Johnson is currently ranked 6, Ferguson NR so it would be a pointless slap in the face for Johnson.  I like Ferguson vs winner of Al/Masvidal (likely to be Al)
