@hyrm he only has 5 ufc wins if you’re counting his NC for inhaler use as a win. 3 of those wins are over guys who got cut from the ufc and never should have been signed in the first place. Greg Hardy is bad

Matchmaking

Thompson v Edwards (Chimaev doesn't deserve ****. Beat an actual opponent first)
Neal v Chimaev 
Aldo v Dillashaw
Vera v Moraes (Hear me out. Marlon just lost to Rob Font. Arguably on 3 fight skid) 
Font v Kenny/Cruz winner, if he wins then title shot
Moraes v Vera 
Tybura v Harris
Hardy v Spivak
