Where Do They Go From Here? - UFC on FX 3Author : Joshua Taylor
Johnson - So obviously the next step in the Flyweight Title Fight to crown the very first champion. Personally I am really hoping DJ can pull off the win and prove that he is the best FlW in the world but beating Benavidez is certainly a tall task. Let's just hope this happens sooner rather than later.
McCall - Really good fight but just didnt look as sharp as the first fight and it was a well deserved win for DJ. Would like to see the two losers of this tourney match up and I think a McCall/Urushitani fight would be a lot of fun to watch and push one guy right back to the top. McCall is definitely on my list of most fun fighters to watch and dude has a good fanbase and should be in the UFC for a long time to come.
Silva - This guy is a monster and should be 3-0 in the UFC with three first round finishes. Huge win to make a big statement over Brenneman. He definitely needs to be pushed along but I dont think he should be thrust into the absolute elite just yet. I think the winner of Bahadurzada/Clements winner (so Bahadurzada). That would be a scrap and would push the winner up to fighting a top guy.
Brenneman - Charlie has looked good at times but has fallen short when he has faced the top guys at WW. I think he should face Diego since Sanchez has struggled early against good wrestlers so it would be a good test for both men.
Pyle - Pyle has been pretty darn impressive in his last six fights with his only loss coming to Rory "GSP 2.0" MacDonald. Although it hasnt been top of the line competition that he has been facing, he has finished his last two in the first round. I would be down to see him face the winner of Dong Hyun-Kim/Demian Maia.
Neer - Just like Scotty, this was a tough loss for Neer as being KO'd can really set a fighter back. He did a lot to earn his way back into the UFC though and I see him getting another fight despite the convincing loss. Someone along the lines of Che Mills would work ok.
Wineland - Wow what a fight! One of the five I was most looking forward to this month and it sure delivered. Both men landed some big shots and had the other wobbled but both stayed strong and kept fighting until that beautiful finish from Eddie. While he was coming off two losses they were to Faber and Benavidez so I think he can still accomplish quite a bit in the UFC BW division. My first choice would be to match him up with Pickett but I would also be ok with a Jabouin fight. Either would be sure to produce fireworks.
Jorgensen - Tough loss but the man has had a ton of success and been a staple of the BW division for Zuffa so I fully expect him to get another fight despite losing two straight. Am I sick for thinking that Jorgensen/Yamamoto would be the tits?
