As for Bonnar... I think he was on a slide and demotivated. Give the guy a chance

Also Brian Ebersole is top ten material

And you want them to fight again?

Bonkers!

Why not have a title fight between Junior dos Santos and Mark Hunt while we're at it?!

Does NEVER EVER beating ONE top 10-ranked fighter not preclude Bonnar (or ANY fighter) from a UFC title shot in your crazy, mixed-up world?!!
Styles make fights my friend!
I don't think bonnar would win but I do think he'd give bones a good fight!

Who cares. He isn't even anywhere remotely close to deserving a title shot, nowhere near at all.

People are sleeping on Big Gus. If he can keep improving he could be a threat.

They need to put some up and comers against the established guard at LHW. None of the established guard are a threat to Bones at the moment. They're already doing it with Davis.

Stick Gustaffson, Moussasi, King Mo and co in with the Lyoto's, Shogun's and Rampages, see how they do and if they get W's, give them the title shots.

Sticking with current UFC fighters, I'd like

Gustaffson Vs Shogun (assuming he gets past Matyushenko)
Silva Vs Rampage once Silva is back from his drugs ban and assuming Rampage beats Bader.
Nedkov Vs Griffin


Division really needs some new blood, tbh.

Not bad. I'd prefer Gustafsson vs Mo and Mousasi vs Davis.
