    Default What's next for UFC on Fuel TV 9 winners?

    I am not going to post an opinion for every fighter so post yours, too! Suggestions for losers are also welcome.

    Mousasi - Even though it wasn't the most impressive win, it was still a very solid one considering the circumstances. There are so many interesting matchups for him at LHW! I would still like to see the Gusta fight down the line. Winner of Shogun/Lil Nog and Teixeira would be fireworks, too.

    Ross Pearson - How about Lauzon or Gomi?

    Mitrione - Winner of Barry/Jordan or The Duff

    Pickett - Dillashaw or Mayday

    Brandao - Dustin Poirier

    Madadi - Sotiropouos

    Notorious McGregor - Too bad Pearson moved back to LW or that fight would be a banger. Is the loser of Cub/Siver too fast? I am all aboard the Notorious train. I like the guy a lot.

    Lawlor - Ronny Markes

    Latifi - Maldonado

    Conor's fighting on the Boston card and i've been told he is getting a lower tier fighter first and if he wins he will face a top 5 guy next time out.

    Ah, I see. I wonder how low a tier of fighter they are thinking?

    Featherweight sure has shaped up.

    Is it Conor or Connor?

    I believe it's Conor with one 'N' man. McGregor's been on the radar for a little while and so I was really excited to see him make his debut, I think Brimmage looked a little wild, and so he was easy picking for a guy with McGregor's skill and technical ability in the stand-up, although Marcus did land a few right hands early in the round when he pressured McGregor.

    I'd like to see McGregor face a lower-tier fighter, then top-10 guy, then a top-5. He's got good stand-up, but it'll be interesting to see how he fares against powerful grapplers in the UFC.

    I think McGregor vs. Brandao would make for an amazing fight. Both guys love to bang, and even though Brandao has matured a lot and is far more measured in his fighting style, I'm sure McGregor would get him swinging.

    Meathead= Duffee makes alot of sense.

    McGregor = Elkins

    Pearson = Barboza rematch

    Mousasi= Gustaffson
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    Mousasi- Bader? Winner of Davis/Vinny sounds good to. I agree with Fedorlie. I was just going to say Gus, but I forgot Mousasi needed surgery.

    Pearson- Guillard

    McGregor- I agree the loser of Swanson and Siver would be awesome, but might be moving him along too fast. Maybe him against the winner of Garcia vs McKensie?

    Mittrione- Fallon Fox

    Have they cut Couture yet?

    Mousasi: After he comes back from surgery, I'd like to see him take a hard look at cutting down to MW. Otherwise, either Goose(who I see getting a new fight ASAP) or winner of Davis/Vinny.

    Latifi: Manuwa or loser of Pokrajac/Jimmo.

    Pearson: Somebody fun. Gomi, Diego, Makdessi, Lauzon, Varner etc. Maybe Masvidal if he wins.

    Couture: Somebody off of a TUF season or cut him.

    Mitrione: Schaub

    Pickett: McDonald, winner of Bedford/Perez. A fight with Faber would be all kinds of fun if he loses to Jorgensen.

    Easton: Caraway, Eduardo, Gagnon

    Brandao: Yahya,, Hettes, Winner of Sicilia/Blanco

    Corassani: Koch, Yagan, Winner of Lawrence/Pineda,

    Peralta: Phan, Rony Jason, Brimage

    Madadi: Barboza, Cruickshank, Edwards, Tokudome

    Troeng: Tom Watson, Brad Tavares, Herman

    Amagov: McGee, Cote, Alves, Swick

    McGregor: Pham, Kimura, Carvalho, Hettes, Brookins, Grice
