Matchups That Need To Happen.


Recommended Posts

Okay this thread is about UFC matchups that I believe make sense and should happen feel free to share your insight on my picks and some picks you think should happen.


Rashad Evans vs Randy Couture ( for interim LHW champion, an interim fight needs to happen with Shogun scheduled to be out for about a year and Shogun saying Randy deserves a title shot , also Rashad only has 2 wins after getting KTFO by Machida who the Champion Shogun just KOed. )


Johny Hendricks vs Jake Ellenberger ( 2 Strong wrestlers with heavy hands who seem to be very close to breaking into the true contender status , it seems like the right matchup and right time for these fighters and this fight)


Dan Hardy vs Thiago Alves ( I'm quite confident Hardy will run through Condit and I believe Alves vs Hardy is one of the very best fights the WW division has to offer they can hype this fight as the two very best strikers at 170 facing off and both of these guys are big names and will get one of them back on track to the title. Hopefully Alves gets his weight cut down.)


Rousimar Palhares vs Damien Maia ( If Palhares gets through Nate Marquardt I believe Maia and Palhares would be near the same level and this would be one of the absolutely interesting matchups the UFC Has to offer hands down it will get one of these guys right into the MW title race and it be the most intricate battle of BJJ figthers the UFC has ever seen)


Kenny Florian vs Nate Diaz ( It seems Nate wants to and should move back down to 155 I believe fighters should fight at whatever weightclass they are strongest at and for Nate thats 155 without a doubt, With Nate having 2 wins at WW and Kenny Florian just coming off a tough defeat to Gray Maynard the number one contender I believe this fight would be a great one stylistically they both have a long reach and sharp standup with strong BJJ , Nate will bring the fight to Kenflo and a win for Nate will finally get him in the LW title sights. And a win for Kenny would only help he needs to build up a good 4-5 wins before he can get his 3rd shot so he needs to get to work at 34 he isn't getting any younger.)


Your thoughts on my picks and my reasoning , also what fights do you think should happen?
