I think Goose would be a fun fight to see Jones's approach but I think with a win over Evans, they hotshot Hendo to a title shot given his name value, age and the fact that he was originally matched-up with Jones once upon a time(I'm factoring in that they won't care if he's only on a one fight win streak...).
Cormier was in excellent shape for the Mir fight a few weeks out of it, but decided to bulk up a bit because he didn't want to be giving up so much weight to Mir and packed a few on. I'd love to see Cormier get a shot and think that'd be a tremendous matchup, but I'd be scared shitless of Cormier's kidneys shutting down if he tries to go below 215, so he'll have to be extremely safe with any approach down to 205, which would probably take some time. I've heard his diet is abysmal, so there are maybe a few paradigm shifts that could make a possible move to LHW easier. If he loses the weight simply from a superior diet and camp and only has to cut a bit, that's wonderful, but I don't want to see a zonked-out and drained Cormier.
