Fights to make after UFC 225 according to JM Barrie

Image #2 LHW Swiss



Now hear me out on this one.
Robert is injured again.  He broke his hand and maybe his forearm.  He will be out for awhile.  While he is out Volkan is going to be dealing with his court case because he was a bad boy.  Volkan showed that as a Swiss he has no wrestling.  I was surprised by his run in the UFC because I watched live his fight in Bellator VS Anundson.  You could tell his ground game was nowhere top notch.   LHW is a weak division atm but I think that with his limit ground game he wont be a champion with little size advantage.  Give him a nice size advantage and then we can tak about winning a belt.
Plus its not like he's on his deathbed during weigh ins.  He got so side fat going on:)

Tai is coming off a win over the # 9 but it wasn't anything special.  If he gets another higher opponent he will lose.  He needs to take more time getting his skills in order.  Willis is 3-0 in the UFC just like him.  I think it's a good match up.

Image #3 HW Russian


Curtis can say whatever he wants.  What does he say?  Well he says that he doesnt want anything other than a title shot or Francis.  Francis cost too much for the UFC for them to give him to another wrestler.  The question is does Francis cost more to them then Volkov?  Russian market VS African market.  Its a good question.
Anyways this fight is a main event fight and a good one.

Mirsad's fight against Lamas was boring af.
He should be punished for not putting a beating on oldman Lamas.

Jussier in a title eliminator? Flyweight is depressing. I know its the casual fans opinion but that division is dead, add some new contenders to bantamweight and see how mightymouse matches up with some established names

Only not 'great' Flyweight he lost to is Ray Borg.

In UFC he only lose to Dodson, Benavidez and Cejudo.

I'm not saying Formiga isn't a great fighter it's just not compeling in the slightest to see him fight DJ, does he have a decent chance? Maybe but he's not a name, he doesn't pose any real threats to DJ and he's lost to 4 of the top 5 or 6 guys. Do you see what I'm saying ?

I think you're right about the injury being fake, but he still more than likely won't be fighting until at least November, as he said in an interview "I don't think I should be back in the Octagon until after Halloween." https://www.fightful.com/mma/exclusives/curtis-blaydes-talks-ufc-225-victory-over-alistair-overeem-knee-injury-return With that said though I think that Volkov is more deserving of a title shot than him fighting Blaydes. Blaydes biggest win has been against Overeem who has never held the title, where as Volkovs biggest win has been again former champ Werdum. But hey that's just my thoughts on the matter.

‘Tai is coming off a win over the # 9 but it wasn't anything special.' 
I disagree! That was a damn good fight against a tough opponent. He’s not fighting backwards here JM, he’s going forward. Shit call imo. Give Tai a good lower # ranked fighter and see what happens.
