This is the fight I'm was hoping for the#1 contender spot.

Hopefully if Robbie wins he can get his revenge but if not i think RDA matches up really well against T-Wood.

This fight hadn't entered my mind but it should be an awesome match.I hope it happens.
I was expecting Mike Perry vs Lawler since he called him out on tv.
And I'm surprised at how well RDA is doing at ww and glad for him since he doesn't have to nearly kill himself to make weight.

Mike Perry i was reaching with that callout. Alan Jouban beat him and that's still fresh on my mind.

Perry has at least 2 more wins before he can get a top 5 guy imo.

Perry wanted Lawler and Usman wanted RDA. Match Perry up against Usman next, that'll show who deserves a crack at a solid top 10 opponent next... though I feel Usman and his 6 fight UFC win streak is more than deserving of a big fight next, than Perry is.

I agree. I think there's only a few WW's that will beat Usman. I kinda wanted Usman vs Covington. They have a similar relentless style. Actually i think Usman could beat Lawler. But i think with Woodley and RDAs grappling i think they could win keeping the fight upright.

Usman i watched on the regional circuit and he's a completely different animal at this point.

Even Usman vs Maia would be cool.
