9) José Aldo vs. Chan Sung Jung - UFC 163
The UFC 163 main event went from being one of my favorite fights in MMA history, Pettis vs. Aldo, to a fight that is likely the weakest of title fights this year. I love Chan Sung Jung's tenacity and mentality, but it is hard for me to see him winning this one against a technical killer in Aldo. While I think this fight could be fun, it could also be a one-sided beat down.

8) Demetrious Johnson vs. John Moraga - UFC on FOX 8
I love watching Demetrious Johnson fight more than most, his speed and technique fascinate me, but there is not much hype behind this main event. I think Moraga will be tough, but I just see Johnson being too much for him over five rounds.

7) Renan Barão vs. Eddie Wineland - UFC 165
This is a true sleeper fight to me. Pairing this fight with Jones-Gustafsson was a brilliant move, as it takes some pressure that comes with being a main event off these two. Wineland is a talented and durable fighter, and will be looking to snap one of the longest win streaks in MMA history when he takes to Toronto. While this is technically an interim title fight, I have long since considered Barão the number one bantamweight due to Dominick Cruz's extended layoff.

6) Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate II - UFC 168
The only question in this fight is what will Miesha Tate bring to this fight that is different from the first time? I think this bout could rocket up the list after TUF 18 but for now, it rests at six.

5) Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson - UFC 165
While there is not a lot of hype for this fight yet, Gustafsson is a worthy challenger to the UFC's best P4P talent in Jones. The two fighter's lack of animosity is refreshing, but that also has potential to hurt the bottom line in this fight since many are still not familiar with the Swede.

4) GSP vs. Johnny Hendricks - UFC 167
GSP will be facing the best wrestler he has ever faced when Hendricks steps into the cage this November. Add in Hendricks massive right hand and you have serious intrigue. That said, there are questions in this bout. GSP is what I consider a counter wrestler, where he is best at takedowns when he can duck a punch or catch a kick, and with a striker as wild as Hendricks, that could make things easier for the champ than expected. I think Hendricks challenges, but unless he tightens certain aspects of his game up, it could be just another defense for GSP.

3) Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos III - UFC 166
Trilogies are good for combat sports, always have been. Add into the mix that both have dominant victories over the other and there is real intrigue here. JDS has that one-punch KO accuracy, while Velasquez destroys you with massive power shots in volume. Expect a hard-hitting bout in this one.

2) Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva II - UFC 168
In many ways, Weidman needed this rematch more than Silva needs it. Most of the talk of this fight has centered on Silva's antics and the Brazilian getting caught. If Weidman can beat him twice, there is no doubt that he is simply the better fighter at this time.

1) Benson Henderson vs. Anthony Pettis II - UFC 164
Finally, the injury bug actually made something better. I love TJ Grant as a fighter, and I loved Aldo-Pettis, but this is a rematch that has been gestating from the minute the WEC closed up shop. While everyone remembers the iconic "Showtime Kick," you have to remember that that kick won one of the tightest fights I have ever watched. This bout is a really even match-up to me, and the clash of styles should be just as fun to watch as it was years ago.
