#9 Uriah Hall is 16-9 (9-7 in UFC) with 12 knockout, 1 submission & 3 decision victories. He is on a 3 fight W streak over Anderson Silva, Antonio Carlos Junior & Bevon Lewis, he also has notable wins over Gegard Mousasi, Thiago Santos, Aung La Nsang & Krzystof Jotko.

Hall is also a 2nd degree black belt in Kyokushin Karate & blue belt in BJJ fighting out of Fortis MMA. Hall is looking to get back into title contention & in my eyes a win over any of these warriors would put him up there.

#11 Edmen Shahbazyn is 11-1 (4-1 in UFC) with  1 submission, 1 decision & 9 knockout victories. He is coming off of a loss to Derek Brunson but has notable wins over Darren Stewart, Jack Marshmann, Brad Tavares & Charles Byrd. Edmen is a black belt in Shotokan Karate fighting out of Glendale Fighting Club. Shahbazyn needs a win and one over a top ranked vet would be huge. A win for Uriah would be huge and cool because he just beat a legend and then would beat one of the best prospects in the division.

#7 Derek Brunson is 21-7 (12-5 in UFC) with 12 knockout, 3 submission & 6 decision victories. He is on a win streak over Edmen Shahbazyan, Ian Heinisch & Elias Theodorou and also has notable wins over Lyoto Machida, Uriah Hall, Sam Alvey & Chris Leben. Brunson is a brown belt in BJJ fighting out of Sanford MMA. Brunson beat Uriah by 1st round T(KO) in 2016, but now would be just as good as any to run it back.

#5 Yoel Romero is 13-5 (9-4 in UFC) with 11 knockout & 2 decision victories. He is on a 3 fight losing streak against Israel Adesanya, Paulo Costa & Robert Whittaker but has notable wins over Luke Rockhold, Chris Weidman, Ronaldo Souza, Lyoto Machida, Derek Brunson & Brad Tavares. Romero is an Olympic Freestlye Wrestler fighting out of ATT. Hall and Romero were scheduled to fight in August but Yoel had to pull out.

Who would you like to see Uriah fight next?
