I hope Borralho decides to keep it standing and look for his 1st UFC TKO

I'm aware this is a pipe dream, but I would love to see the UFC sign Horiguchi and give him a title shot on this card. I love the flyweight division but I'm seriously so over all the rematches. It looks like Pantoja will headline this card and will probably fight the winner of Royval/Moreno, which mean's we're getting either a trilogy or quadrilogy. Don't get me wrong, I'll tune in. But this division desperately needs a shake-up. 

Kape would be a shoe in here but he massively ****** up by being so undisciplined. Not sure if Albazi would be healthy by the time this card rolls around or he'd be next in line I think. We're left with Nicolau and KKF, who would probably need to fight each other first to justify a title shot. Assuming Mokaev beats Perez, he would have just as good a claim as anyone to a title shot but would only have 9 weeks to prepare, so not enough time. 

Again, I know it's a pipedream, but I think Kyoji Horiguchi would be an awesome matchup for Pantoja.

https://www.mmamania.com/2024/1/11/24035106/comeback-rizin-champ-kyoji-horiguchi-wants-to-return-to-u-s-in-ufc-not-pfl-thats-all-thinking-about

Would be awesome if they could figure out a way to make it work. It's what Horiguchi wants. He was supposed to be fighting for the inaugural flyweight belt in Bellator but that idea was scrapped and he is instead the RIZIN flyweight champion. So if he's stuck on the Bellator brand, he's fighting at bantamweight. The PFL isn't even going to have bantamweight in 2024 let alone flyweight. Horiguchi sounds like he could just retire if he doesn't find a way to get out of purgatory with the PFL, which would suck for everybody. 

I think he's one of the best flyweights in the world and while he's been around forever, he's technically younger than Pantoja.

and tbf horiguchi slaps pantoja in the 4th and 5th and pantoja likely wins 1st and 2nd leaving the third round the only questionable one
