Who do you guys think should get the next shot at middleweight? Not sure how long Whittaker is out for.

Almost has to be Gastelum right? 

Him or Weidman. Neither are ideal fights though. Gastelum lost to Weidman who lost 3 in a row before that while Gastelum looked okay vs Jacare and KO'd an over the hill Bisping but hasn't beat any of the Top-3

Maybe have them rematch if Whittaker is out for awhile? Feel like neither is that deserving, but no one really is.

If Romero would just freaking make weight he’d be in line for an interim belt if one was to be had. I think a rematch with Chris/Kelvin would be good

if whittaker's out for over like 8 months, i bet we get weidman v. kelvin 2 for the interim

Gegard Mousasi would look real good in the UFC rankings right now. Shame they let him get away. I'd love Mousasi-Whittaker.

maybe paulo costa finishes uriah hall in crazy fashion and they hype him up into that title area since there's not a lot of excitement at the top of the division there right now. that's what i'd be hoping for.

Cant imagine he even sniffs a chance even if he does to Uriah what Uriah did on TUF. Paulo's best win was vs Pig Rig so far

Shame Mousasi is gone

Anyone watch TUF? Gunther just looks lost on the feet but man he can take a beating. Actually really looking forward to the semis though. Brad v Bryce should be an awesome fight. I think there are alot of potential prospects on this show which you dont say many seasons

Sounds like he may have some more fights in LFA first. they indicated there might be some kind of development thing going on for him. think he's under contract from the UFC, but they'll let him fight lesser competition first to get some experience.

would be tough to see him fight anyone UFC level right now, we can't forget that was his first pro fight.

i kinda got the vibe they're gonna feed him lower level prospects on fight pass prelims for a little. 

that other fellow that got the contract menifield is one of the most promising things at 205 right now. not saying much. but still he looks real fun.

two pretty legit prospects came outta that episode.

Yea menifield's win was kinda janky, the other guy just made a godawful decision to open with a naked kick, but regardless it looks like he's got a ton of potential. 7-0, looks like something out of a marvel movie.

Guy's got some highlight power

So heres the thing, why wouldnt they do to Hardy what they did to Punk? Give him someone that is meh to fight but it is on the PPV because it would sell well with people wanting to see him get KO'd

Its hard to tell much from a 9 second fight. The punch he landed i didnt think hit so flush. I assumed he was off balance because he threw a kick right out of the gate

I'm pretty sure Hardy is no where near the pull that CMP is.

this.. but also i bet they would be mentioning it all over sportscenter and ****. almost every sports fans know him and hates him. he pulls quite a bit i bet. 

but i think they recognize he's pretty legit and will build him properly. but then again they throw any that's got a little hype on the PPV main card these days. and also but then again they're trying to murder yair rodriguez so what do i know
