if they didn't get canceled.

1. Jones vs Rumble
If Jones would have won he would have cleaned out the LHW division and maybe moved up to HW. If Rumble would have won we could have possibly had a trilogy instead of him fetiring.

2. Khabib vs Ferguson
The winner would have been the clear cut #1 contender and the LW division could eventually unify the belts against Conor.

3. Fedor vs Couture
The winner could have laid claim to the best HW in the world and Fedor could have possibly fought Brock and beat his ass too. Cain would have never existed.

4. Penn vs Edgar at FW
Penn could have finally fought at his real weight class and won another belt to go along with his WW and LW belt.

5. GSP vs Anderson
Would have settled the GOAT discussion among UFC fighters since everyone else already knows that Fedor is the undisputed GOAT.

6. Hendo vs Jones
Hendo could have somehow penetrated Jones's eye pokes and 90 inch reach and ended it all with a well placed H-Bomb.

7. Yoel Romero against Bisping or GSP
This would have marked the first fatality in the UFC

That gif is directed at no.7, because it is true, oh it is damn true!

No.5 Anderson would have absolutely kicked GSP's ass. GSP knew what time it was if he were to fight Anderson, and made a bunch of BS excuses, and even had the nerve of calling Anderson a duck.

Aldo vs Pettis I know it wasn't ever scheduled but it is one of the bigger ones I can think of.
Hughes vs Serra? Not sure if it counts but I remember people talking about it long before it finally happened.
Barnett vs Fedor because Fedor.

Josh Barnett vs. Fedor was the first match up that came to mind

Karo Parisyan vs. Matt Hughes at UFC 56

Conor vs. RDA

Kimbo vs. Ken Shamrock at Elite XC

Michael Bisping vs. Robert Whittaker

Aleks Emelianenko vs. Co Cop 2 at Legend Part 2
..at this even CC would get subbed by Alexey Oleynik.

Pat Healy vs. Gilbert Melendez in Strike force

Khabib vs. Cerrone

Rashad Evans vs. Shogun Rua....changed everything for Mr. Jones

Rickson vs Sakuraba

The Best of the Best vs The Gracie Hunter. Sakuraba beat all the Gracies that were put in front of him, but would he have defeated the master of the Gracie family, and possibly the greatest BJJ fighter of all time?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

So true. There is a reason Bisping released statements saying he was too injured to fight Jacare or Yoel but was healthy enough to fight GSP, Nick Diaz or Woodley :lol:

Watching Gastelum (a welterweight with no discipline) knock him the fuck out really makes me think Yoel would have at the very least paralyzed him.

Would've definitely changed the landscape of Bisping's face, probably GSP's too. :twisted:

I think Barnett would have beaten Fedor he had allot of confidence from being roided up.
