Where do the fighters from UFC 160 go now?

UFC 160 was packed with great fights and some of them shook up their respective divisions. The question a lot of people have after every fight card is, where do the fighters go next? This is my best case scenario for these fighters. I only included some of the better known fighters in this.

Cain Velasquez - Cain should, and as far as we know is going to fight Junior Dos Santos again to finish off their trilogy. This fight is a must for UFC fans and to establish who the real champion is in the Heavyweight division.

Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva - Silva lost again at the hands of the current heavyweight champion. I wouldn't mind seeing a fight between Silva and Stefan Struve at this point. Struve was on a good run before losing to Mark Hunt and this fight will get one of these fighters back on track.

Mark Hunt - I think an awesome fight for the fans would be to see Hunt and Overeem go at it. Both are powerful strikers looking to get back to their winning ways. This is an awesome fight any way you look at it.

Glover Texeira - Glover needs a top opponent. The guy is on an insane win streak and is defeating people in dominant fashion. I think Glover should get a good opponent after we see how the upcoming Light-Heavyweight fights play out.

TJ Grant - Grant is getting the next crack at Lightweight champion Benson Henderson according to UFC President Dana White at the UFC 160 post fight press conference.

Gray Maynard - Gray needs to get back on track. He is definitely a top 5 Lightweight. I think a fight with KJ Noons would be a good way to potentially get back on track. Noons just dropped a decision to Cerrone on this card.

Donald Cerrone - A fight with Josh Thompson was brought up as a possibility at the press conference and I am all for it. This fight would be awesome and a close one to call but it's a fight that needs to happen.

Disclaimer: I understand that some fighters may already be booked or are in talks. This is just my humble opinion on what I think would make logical and fun fights.
