Alright everyone pump the brakes just a tad bit here. It was his first fight back in the UFC and he came in ranked #14. Let's build him up before he have him fighting the top of the top. In last night's PPV thread, I listed the following fighters who do not have a fight coming up.
Not currently ranked in the top 10:
- Ovince St. Preux
- James Te Huna
- Ryan Jimmo
And those ranked in the top 10:
#8 - Shogun Rua
#10 - Jimi Manuwa
You can go as low as Te Huna to build up his highlight reel, let the division sort itself out, or go all the way to Shogun, feed Johnson a aging legend that would strike with him.
