Future Matches UFC Fight Night 60: Winners
Benson Henderson vs. Carlos Condit
Henderson seems to do a lot better without cutting all that weight and he said he wishes to put on a few more pounds of muscle with a full camp. He called out Rory MacDonald who already has a fight which is most likely a title shot, so Henderson could take on Carlos Condit in his return in a battle of former champions. It would make a good test to see where Henderson sits at 170.
Max Holloway vs. Cub Swanson
This fight is already set in stone with the fight being announced in cage. Swanson is coming off a loss and a layoff while Holloway has strung together about five wins. The winner of this could reassert them in the top five of the division.
Neil Magny vs. Winner of Demian Maia vs. Ryan Laflare
Magny has won six straight, but if Laflare beats Maia, he will have won five straight and over a bigger name than any of Magny’s wins. If Maia best LaFlare, then he will still need a few more wins before challenging the top of the division. Either way it will make sense for any combo of these fighters to face off.
Ray Borg vs. Zach Makovsky
Borg and Makovsky showed their skill over some fighters with some pretty big holes in their game. They both are looking toward the top of the division, but have had some losses that they need to show they have grown from. A win over each other would show who has the strongest chance of being a top contender.
Future Matches UFC Fight Night 60: Losers
Brandon Thatch vs. Jordan Mein
Both are tough, young fighters who could be some of the future of the division, but both were taken out by veterans who exposed the holes in their game. Let them face off to see who is closer to fulfilling what people have pegged their destinies.
Cole Miller vs. Dennis Siver
Miller and Siver have pegged themselves as being gatekeepers in the division, but that may be too many of them to stick around. Let them fight each other to see who is the more washed up of the two and send the other packing.
