Oliveira vs Masvidal would be great as well

Are these 2 still going to be rankable at 185 here after this? I feel like they should be.

I want Anders to win, but I fear that the man nicknamed Sledgehammer is gonna bring the hammer down on Anders' little run that he's on.  The problem with Santos always is his inconsistency, but with him at 205 now I think that goes away.

Man Anders is really working the takedown well and is making the most of them.  If he wasn't always up against the cage and had more room to work on the ground, he could have possibly tapped out Santos, especially when he had the hooks in.

Holy crap!  Thiago Santos did to Eryk Anders what Travis Brown did to Josh Barnett with those short elbows.

205 Thiago Santos is even scarier than 185 Thiago Santos, if that was even possible.  He could easily become a dark horse contender for the belt with in a year's time.

Yeah, 205 is his home. The division needs a shake up and he's a great addition.

Anders not on 5 days notice could've won that fight. He fought very good on 5 days notice. Plus he just fought into the 3rd Round 4 weeks ago. 

Time to take a break for a few months, get back down to 185 and beatdown a Top 13-20 MW and he'll be back on track. 

He did everyone a favour and held the Main Event together. That's "Ya Boy" right there. Manuwa didn't want to fight. Say what you want Manuwa pussed out and Anders stepped up like a G.
