UFC Lightweight Division: Let's Play Match-Maker

New, 24 comments

Last week we witnessed two Xtreme Couture lightweights win their respective UFC fights in Gray Maynard and Tyson Griffin.  They took out Roger Huerta and Hermes Franca respectively.  We have Diego Sanchez fighting BJ Pennlater this year at UFC 107 and Kenny Florian taking on Clay Guida at the same event.  Jim Miller just won his lightweight fight at UFC 103, and Frankie Edgar will be taking on Kurt Pellegrino at the TUF 10 Finale.  Also, Josh Neer will be taking on Gleison Tibau, and  Spencer Fisher will be taking on Joe Stevenson at UFC 104.  There's no definitive challenger to the winner of the BJ Penn/Diego Sanchez matchup.  So I thought it would be fun to play match maker on possible scenarios that could come about in the UFC lightweight division.  You can find a list of fighters that are available(no fights scheduled) after the jump to work your magic.

-Gray Maynard

-Tyson Griffin

-Jim Miller

-Sean Sherk(when he comes back from his injury)

-Nate Diaz

-Hermes Franca?(if he's not cut)

-Jeremy Stephens

-Raphael dos Anjos

-Joe Lauzon(when he comes back from the knee injury)

-Sam Stout

-Efrain Escudero

-Melvin Guillard

That's just about all the notable lightweights that I can think of.  If I forgot someone, just list them in the comments section.  Aight, let's see what yall can come up with to help sort out this division.
