UFC on Fox 13 is in the books. So what's next for the main card fighters? Bloody Elbow's Mookie Alexander puts on his matchmaking cap for the likes of Junior dos Santos, Stipe Miocic, and Rafael dos Anjos.

The dust from the UFC on Fox 13 co-main event, which saw Rafael dos Anjos dominate the ever-interesting Nate Diaz, has settled. The fight itself was surprisingly, almost disappointingly lopsided, as Dos Anjos dominated Diaz from pillar to post, beating him on the punch and on the ground.

Now, he goes back to the drawing board and restarts his c read news >>

Few gave the part-time firefighter much of a chance leading up to the bout, reasoning that the former UFC heavyweight champion’s considerable strengths would likely prove to be a stylistic nightmare. However, the opening two rounds for the 32-year-old Miocic were less a nightmare and more a dream of read news >>
Alistair Overeem was able to get the job done at UFC on Fox 13. The former Strikeforce champion was in need of a win to avoid going 2-4 in the Octagon.

With that goal in mind, here is a look at five men who Overeem should be paired with next. Begin Slideshow read news >>
