Cruz: Bowles II, or possibly even Faber III right away since we got such an entertaining 25 minutes

Leben: I'd say Maia for the clash of styles

Ortiz: Hendo for the Strikeforce LHW strap

Condit: I don't really want him to sit for 9+ months waiting for a GSP fight. I think he needs another fight this year (November or so). But yeah, most top WWs are already booked. (GSP vs. Diaz, Penn vs. Fitch, Shields vs. Ellenberger, Sanchez vs. Hughes.) Kos will want an easier comeback fight than Condit. Maybe the UFC can go sign Ben Askren.

Guillard: Winner of Miller/Bendo

I would love to see Faber against Cruz again, but I think Mighty Mouse deserves the shot. The only problem with that is if they make a flyweight division the only possible fight for the first title is gunna be Benavidez vs Mighty Mouse at 125.

As for Melvin, he said he won't fight a teamate unless its for the title, so that means he won't be fighting Guida. If Jim Miller beats Bendo it would be impossible to deny him a title shot. Outside of Jim Miller, there are several people knocking onf the door: Siver, Guillard and Guida. Guillard may have to string together two more wins before he gets his shot at the title. And if Melendez comes over thats another guy who is already in line for a title shot.

I think Condit will wait for the title shot. Personally, I would love to see him fight Shields or Ellenberger again (I thought Ellenberger won their last fight).

Condit already said that he doesnt want to wait

I did not expect Leben to crush Silva. I think Melvin could possibly beat Frankie or Greg imo. He has really improved on his game. Melvin has really impressed me in his last couple of fights.

i would have to say cruz vs mighty mouse

leben vs munoz is really interesting to me especially since munoz seems to be standing in fights more and hes another fighter that doesnt seem to back down.

I would like to see tito and forest again

I still think that Condit is a fight or two away from a title shot so the winner of shields vs ellenberger
