UFC on FUEL TV 3 is in the books, so that means it's time to look at what's in store for Tuesday night's big winners and losers.

Chan Sung Jung: Winner of Jose Aldo-Erik Koch.
"The Korean Zombie" has an incredible amount of momentum following his win over Dustin Poirier, and since there isn't a top contender at 145, this only makes sense.

Dustin Poirier: Loser of Jose Aldo-Erik Koch.
Since I expect Erik Koch to lose to Jose Aldo on July 21, and since Poirier and Koch have been calling each other out for more than year, this fight would be a great rebound fight for both young men.

Donald Cerrone: Mark Bocek.
I still believe the UFC will figure out a way to book Anthony Pettis vs. Nate Diaz, which leaves Cerrone without an opponent. I can see the promotion then booking him against Jim Miller or Mark Bocek, and I think Bocek is due for a high-profile fight.

Jeremy Stephens: Jim Miller.

Both fighters are coming off tough losses. This is a very difficult fight for Stephens considering he's lost two in a row, but such is the life of a UFC lightweight.

Amir Sadollah: John Hathaway.
I like this styles match-up a lot.

Yves Jabouin: Mike Easton.
These two bantamweights were supposed to meet at this event until Easton had to pull out of the fight due to an injury. I would like to see them try to book this one again.

Other match-ups to make:
Igor Pokrajac vs. winner of Kyle Kingsbury vs. Glover Teixeira
Tom Lawlor vs. Brad Tavares
