The Adensanya loss stung as a Whittaker fan, but it takes greatness to surpass greatness. As long as we get 3-4 matches between Adensanya-Whittaker-Costa while these guys can still throwdown in their primes then a great service to mma history will have been paid.

Adensanya-Costa
Costa-Whittaker
Adensanya-Whittaker-Costa II
This would be great, no matter how the fights play out they would be incredibly exciting. I feel Gastelum/Romero aren't going to hang with these three guys, and Cannonier is still to be tested against any of the aforementioned fighters. Middleweight has a lot of potential hopefully UFC can capitalize on the opportunities, and the fighters stay healthy.
