The UFC has been a promotion that prides itself on creating great matchups and more often than not they do exactly that. The matchmaker Joe Silva has regularly been a big reason to why the UFC has been so popular. Silva creates dream matchups that are the lifeblood of the UFC and of MMA in general.
