Future Matches UFC Fight Night 65 will tell you who we think the biggest stars of this past weekend’s fight card should face in their return to the Octagon.
Future Matches UFC Fight Night 65: Winners
Stipe Miocic vs. Alistair Overeem
With the division so thin it is hard to have match ups for these fighters without eliminating a title contender. Browne and Arlovski are matched up for a potential number one contenders fight and Overeem is the only available opponent. This could make for the next number on contender and a decent fight for the division.
Robert Whittaker vs. Roan Carneiro
They sit at about the same place in the Middleweight division with some equally impressive wins in their past few fights. A win in a fight between the two could make them crack the top ten or at least put them in a position to fight the top ten.
Sam Alvey vs. Winner of Rafael Natal vs. Uriah Hall
Alvey has won three straight but not against any one of worth really. Natal and Hall at least have some weight to their name and could be a good main card fight. The winner of Alvey against the winner of Natal and Hall could crack the top 15 as well.
Bec Rawlings vs. Alex Chambers
Both are 1-1 in the Octagon so far and picked up wins by submission. They are going to still have to build themselves back up in the 155 pound division. Both are unranked and could crack into the top 15 at Strawweight with a win over each other.
Future Matches UFC Fight Night 65: Losers
Mark Hunt vs. Cro Cop
Both are a few fights away from being out of the fight game all together. Even though they both bounced around PRIDE for a while and have had kickboxing careers, they have only fought once and never in MMA. It would be a good fight and a great fight if the UFC returns to Japan.
