2. Georges St. Pierre vs. Jake Shields

If Georges St. Pierre retains his welterweight title against Thiago Alves in July, he'll find himself low on fresh challengers in the UFC.

Lucky for him one of the best 170 lbs. pound fighters in the world could be heading to the octagon upon honouring the remaining bouts on his EliteXC/Strikeforce contact.

Jake Shields (22-4) is riding an 11-fight win streak, with notable wins over Carlos Condit, Hayato Sakurai and top UFC middleweight Yushin Okami.

Shields is currently scheduled for a 182-lbs. catch-weight bout with Robbie Lawler on Strikeforce's June 6 event. A loss shouldn't affect his welterweight standing, but a win will earn him a warmer reception with UFC management.

1. Fedor Emelianenko vs. the UFC heavyweight champion

Well, this has been talked about endlessly, hasn't it?

Though attempts have been made to bring Emelianenko to the UFC in the past, the two sides just haven't been able to agree to terms. The points of contention vary depending on who you're talking to, but let's forget all that for now. This fight needs to happen.

The top-ranked heavyweight fighter for the last six years, Emelianenko has beaten the who's who of MMA. However, since he's never stepped foot in the octagon many naysayers, including UFC president Dana White, claim he's overrated.

Parents teach their kids never to give into peer pressure, but there would be nothing sweeter than to see 'The Last Emperor' finally stand toe-to-toe with the UFC's top dog.
