top 10 ufc fights i want to see happen 2015

If I were running the UFC I would first need a gallon of coffee a day to keep the schedule that Dana White has to keep. Next I would start thinking about all the fights that I would want to make happen. The possibilities are endless with all the great talent in the UFC now. One thing about the UFC that separates it from boxing is that big fights are possible. There are no promoter beefs that keep superstars from testing themselves against the very best. If I were able to take Dana White’s spot at the top of the UFC, here are the fights I would most like to see.

 

  1. Robbie Lawler v. Matt Brown. I know they just fought but it was a great matchup. These two brawlers are perfect for each other.
  1. Cain Velasquez v. Fabricio Werdum. This fight is a go and will be on November 15th. Werdum shocked Travis Browne with a five round clinic, but the heavyweight champion is a different animal.
  1. Chris Weidman v. Vitor Belfort. I want to follow Weidman’s every move, no matter who he fights. The man who beat Anderson Silva twice has my full attention.
  1. Travis Browne v. Junior Dos Santos. I would pay to see this fight come off. Both guys have had some tough losses of late. But they have both seen great success in the Octagon also. Browne could redeem himself or drop further in the rankings.
  1. Roy Nelson v. Mark Hunt. When this fight gets started on September 20th, make sure you don’t blink. With two big swingers like these guys, it could be a short night.
  1. Jose Aldo v. Anthony Pettis. This would be a match for the ages between two current champions. Both fighters are physically dominant and have the experience to go with it.
  1. Johny Hendricks v. Robbie Lawler. Lawler keeps getting better, but so does the champion Hendricks. If they do meet again, it could turn into a trilogy when it is all said and done.
  1. Jon Jones v. Alexander Gustafsson. The first fight was worth the price of admission with Jones being taken to his limit. A rematch should have already happened.
  1. Ronda Rousey v. Cris “Cyborg” Justino. This would be a huge payday for the UFC in PPV buys I believe. Cyborg would have to really clean up her act to get a shot at Rousey though. Clean is not something she is know for being.
  1. Anderson Silva v. Georges St-Pierre. This one will most likely never happen with St Pierre retired and Silva tying to simply return from his broken leg. If something crazy happens it could materialize as a farewell fight for Silva and a one last stand for Georgess St-Pierre. Don’t hold your breathe though.
